SOURCE: where is located the ford f-150 horn

If you slide under the front bumper, in front of the passenger side front wheel, and look up, the high and low note horns should be on a bracket right there.

SOURCE: 2000 ford expudition 5.4 eng,where are the plugs

This is the GREAT thing about the 5.4. Each cylinder has it own plug and coil combo. The coil sits on top of the plug which is located under some decorative plastic. I would not suggest changing these yourself however if you want to here is a great tutorial on it

SOURCE: ford trouble codes on a e 250 with a 5.4 eng codes

P0205 Injector Circuit Malfunction - Cylinder 5
P0175 System too Rich (Bank 2)
A code P0175 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters can cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled
  • There could be a vacuum leak.
  • There could be a fuel pressure or delivery problem
Possible Solutions Possible solutions include:
  • Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
  • Clean the MAF sensor. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
  • Inspect fuel lines for cracks, leaks, or pinches
  • Check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail
  • Check the fuel injectors, they may be dirty. Use fuel injector cleaner or get them professionally cleaned/replaced.
  • Check for an exhaust leak before the first oxygen sensor (this is unlikely to cause the problem, but it is possible)
The causes of a P0205 engine light

code could be any of the following:
  • Bad injector. This is usually the cause of this code but doesn't rule out the possibility of one of the other causes
  • Open in the wiring to the injector
  • Short in the wiring to the injector
  • Bad PCM
Possible Solutions
  1. First, using a DVOM check the resistance of the injector. If it isn't within specs, then replace the injector.
  2. Check for voltage at the fuel injector connector. It should have 10 volts or more.
  3. Visually check the connector for damage or broken wires.
  4. Visually check the injector for damage.
  5. If you have access to an injector tester, activate the injector and see if it operates. If the injector operates, then you likely have either an open in the wiring, or a blocked injector. If you do not have access to a tester, swap the injector with another one and see if the code changes. If the code changes, then change the injector.
  6. At the PCM, remove the driver wire from the PCM connector and Ground the wire. (Make sure you have the correct wire. If you're not sure, do not attempt) The injector should activate
  7. Replace the injector

SOURCE: checked alt passed, new 175

A 12 volt battery has 6 cells, @ 2.2 volts each = 13.2 volts Static (theory)

Now you need a min of 12.5 volts, to conduct any testing,or you
charge the battery first

When the engine is running,alternator turning, you get 13.6 approx to
14.4 approx. --output voltage

You can not charge a battery without a higher voltage than what you have.

When a battery sits over night fully charged,you should have 12.62 to say
12.67 volts

So you still got problems to work out.
You can pull out fuses untill you find the circuit,that has the issues
and possibly something on that circuit, is not timing out

If you have an Amp Meter, you can put it in series,in either battery cable
and start pulling fuses untill you get under 35 milliamps. You will
have 25 to 50 milli amp to power the clock,computer modules etc.

Can I bypass the 175 amp fusable link for the alt on a 2010 ford focus? The link I believe is contained in the wire running from starter to alternator I think. Can anyone verify this for me.

NO you can't. if you do you will set your car on fire. 175 amp is a lot of power to be putting on a non fusible wire. A fire would be a surety . Just go to a real auto store or order a link from rock auto find the splice point and put it in. I know they are very expensive but what you gonna do. There are mega fuse Kits but you need skill , room and the remaining wire may be too short.

I have a 99 f-150 4.6,i can buy a 2000 f-150 4-6,i have 2 coil packs on mine,the other has single over coils,is there anything else that would be different?

Your computer is wired for different settings from the different ign module. Also the reference wiring for eng sensors are different. Basically the eng is same but different electronic controls.

Need to locate the engine coolant temperature sensor. 5.4 eng.

It is located near the thermostat housing. Follow the upper rad hose. It is removed by a socket & ratchet. You must disconnect the wires leading in to it & install in reverse order. Use atray to catch any lost antifreese & refill. Do not overtighten, only 5ft.lbs. Good luck!
