Question about Metra Ford F 150 Truck 1999

1994 Ford F-150 V8 305 (5-Liter). I just installed a new battery. Truck STILL will not start. I traced the main NEGATIVE wire from the battery post, down into the engine compartment and found it connected to NOTHING! Dangling free! I can't see or feel where it SHOULD be connected. |Could you tell me please?

1989 Ford F-150 short bed, 6 cyl.-Tried to start and it was completely dead. Battery is only couple years old. I checked to see if lights or inside lights were left on and they were not. Hooked up battery...

Check your ground wire from the battery to the starter...there was a hold down clip theat had rubbed thru the wire coating...left side of the engine. My truck would die...hit the wire and the hood light would come on but wouldn't start even though I knew the battery was charged. Replaced the negative battery cable and all is well, atleast with that issue.LOL

Here are the firing order diagrams for those engines and I hope that they will help you solve the problem that you are having. For some reason Ford has listed the same firing order for both engines starting in 1995.

1993 5.0 liter engine firing order.

1988 ford f-150

i was able to loosen the switch and slide it up the shaft and use wire ties to hold it to the top of the shaft. no more problems. the only down fall is that the truck will now start in gear.

Alternator not charging


If you have a volt meter, set it to volts and hold the negative probe to the alternator body and the positive to the battery positive. If you don't get battery voltage then the alternator isn't grounded and the probable cause is the main engine ground cable either breaking or coming loose.

Very best regards
