Ford F-150 - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


those strips are called the ditches, where the panels are joined together. The material is supposed to stay soft. Under the sealer are spot welds where the panels are welded together.

Sealers
In addition to repairing the weld area, proper sealing of the joints is essential to a quality repair. Sealers are intended to prevent wind noise, water, dust and exhaust fumes from entering the vehicle and also perform as anti-corrosion barriers. Sealers need to be applied to such areas as door and rear compartment lid hem flanges, wheelhouse, quarter outer, floor, cowl, roof and various other panel-to-panel attaching points. The following joint sealers are recommended for use depending upon the application:
  • Brushable Seam Sealer - A sealer intended to restore the original brushed seam look. It is used to seal lap joints in sheet metal that are spot welded, such as on floorpans, cowls, trunk seams, etc.
  • Joint and Seam Sealer - A firm setting but flexible sealer for interior and exterior joints and seams.
  • Drip-Check Sealer - A heavy bodied sealer designed for use on exposed seams.
Sealers should remain flexible after curing and must be paintable. Follow the manufacturer's directions for use of materials selected.
Any damage to originally sealed joints should be corrected by resealing. Along with attaching points of new panels, open joints which require bridging of sealer to close a gap should be sealed using a heavy-bodied sealer.

When it will not start with the key, is this a crank no start issue ?

If you turn the key from off to run ( do not start ) does the theft light on the cluster go out ?

If not, try a different key. I am working from an assumption that the PATS key is not registering with the HEC for some reason, this is why the try another key. The remote start has a PATS bypass

Please post back with the answers to the questions, and the results of the 2nd key testing

To check if you have adequate fluid, you should first switch on the vehicle, shift gears, and let it heat up a bit. Then move toward the engine and carefully remove the dipstick to wipe away all the fluid on it. Then reinsert the stick and pull it out, now it will accurately show the current fluid level.

Could be the fuse for the horn, the horn relay or the clock spring in the steering wheel column.

Best to start with jumpering the horn relay, to check the horns to the fuse.

Take a jumper wire, and jumper across the normally open contacts in the horn relay socket ( listing in the owners manual ). This is shown as the red line in the picture below.

If the horn does not work with the jumper wire, check the fuse ( engine compartment fuse # 7 ) with a meter. IF the fuse has power on both pins on the back of the fuse, next is to install the jumper and test the horn connector for power & ground ( Yellow w/ light green is from the jumper in the relay socket and black is ground ). If you do not have power using the Yellow w. Light green wire & the black, try another ground, to see if it is an issue with the ground wire. This is to a ground lug on the passenger side inner fender.

If the horn does work, check pin #2 with a meter set to continuity from pin #2 ( diagram above ) and a known good ground. While checking this, have someone press the horn switch on the steering wheel. If you do not get a low resistance (

This is a diagram for the fuse box located inside the vehicle. There is a power distribution box located in the engine compartment with fuses in it as well. If you need that diagram you can post a comment to this solution and I should recirve an email letting me know and I will post that as well if you need it. This should be in your owners manual if you have one. If you need an owners manual just email me at [email protected] with your make, model and year and I will be glad to email you a copy at no cost to you. Here are your diagrams:

I have a 2005 f150 just notice that the driver and passenger side mats are wet. I had my windshield replace almost a year ago and went back recently to have them recheck the seal. What else could t be need help

2010 Ford F-150 | Answered on Jan 14, 2020


They are in the transmission . Remove the transmission fluid pan. You will see the valve body , the solenoids are mounted to it. They are clipped in. Do not remove the valve body unless you have to. Things pop out of it. Be careful removing solenoids, things can pop out of these holes also. Hold the solenoid and remove the clip/s.

1999 Ford F150... | Answered on Dec 30, 2019


so your saying that you changed the distributor yes/no or just the cap and rotor if you pulled out the distributor did you mark the rotor position and body case before removal if not now you need to do a #1 on it pull out the distributor rotate the crankshaft to bring the #1 piston to tdc and then reinstall it,///// why did you start changing parts I need to know original symptoms why and how it was running , was there check engine codes , did you check the EGR valve vacuum lines and the valve if its closed all the way or clogged it will cause exhaust fumes to foul out the plugs and turn them black from not recirculating the unburnt fuel and then more fresh fuel is coming in messing up the air/fuel ratio, please post back with a correct list of everything you've done and include the trucks running condition before problems started and the mileage on the vehicle

I searched this and it shows up as a stereo???--I don't know what the issue is but I do know that Fords use the radio as/in the computer function of the vehicle---if you disturb this you might have bigger issues---with todays electronics in vehicles you have to be very careful with any wiring alteration--get wiring recommendations from a Ford dealer or a PROFESSIONAL STEREO INSTALLER--this is the best I can do

Check again the distributor cap and rotor carefully and replace with a good known one.
