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.

1. Fuel 2. Spark 3. Air-proper timing Verify that you do have a fully charged battery. Any voltage below 9.5 Volts while cranking will not fire the coils properly. Test for fuel issues by spraying a little carb. cleaner so that it can be drawn into the intake while cranking. If it starts for a minute, it's a fuel issue. Check by listening to see if you can hear the fuel pump running when you first turn the key on. Listening through the gas filler tube with the cap removed while someone else turns the car from off to on is the best way to hear the pump running for a few seconds. Spend a minute or two checking wiring in engine compartment to make sure no little animals have been chewing. Other than those issues, you could have a timing issue and will need to see if the timing is set properly, then there are the ignition components but you usually would get a DTC to indicate a problem there. Good luck.

If it's a mechanical vent flap, might have a loose cable. If it's electronic, might be your heater and / or A/C unit that is bad.

Do you have a 2006 or 2007/08 F-150 ?

The problem section is for the 2006, which 37 & 39 are the correct fuses.

Change in the 07-08 MY for the power point fuses

Instrument Power point is fuse #117
Rear Power Point and Center console power point are fuse # 37

Fuse #18 & Fuse #20 are for the overhead power point, one is hot in run / start ( Fuse 18 ) the other is hot all the time ( Fuse 20 )

if the engine light is flashing, it means you have a misfire in one or more cylinders. it is most likely plugs or coil wires.
mine started doing this a few weeks ago. finally got around to changing the plugs today. the cylinder order on fords is easy, passenger side from front to back is 1234, driver side front to back is 5678. my number 4 cylinder had a plug that was collapsed. the metal piece was crushed into the contact, not allowing any spark.
