#1352 of 2180 2004 Ford F-150 4x4 Off Road Brake Rotor Problems
Jul 20, 2005 (7:10 pm)
Does anyone know of solutions to a brake problem with my 2004 F-150? From the beginning, and now at 32,000 miles, I have been into the dealer 7 times because of vibrations (warped rotors mostly). This is getting ridiculous. I have been told every line, from brake shorter & harder, to the pads are now harder than the rotors, to...You name it. Well, bottom line is, they're giving up on working them. I have even had the rotors replaced 11,000 & 23,000. As a repeat F-150 owner, I have never had such problems with brake wear. Does anyone have a solution? Would be greatly appreciated!!! Obviously, I'd like to avoid going through brakes every 9-15k miles for the rest of the vehicles life!...P.S. I rarely drive in the city & very rarely tow anything. Thank you in advance for your help & suggestions.

#1355 of 2180 2003 F250 4WD Diesel blows Start/Run fuse
Jul 24, 2005 (6:22 am)
The problem started on a very rough, steep, dirt road. I got to the bottom of the hill, all of the gauges were at "zero" and I couldn't switch out of 4wd, low range.
I finally found a blown fuse #45, a 10amp mini and replaced it.
All fine until another rough road trip the next morning. Same routine.
Worked fine for a few days then blew twice in one morning on a smooth city street.
I checked under the vehicle to see if a loom was pinched anywhere, especially near the suspension.
I also checked the cab ceiling circuits and brake lights as I had just added a Confer rack to the top. All of those circuits seemed okay.
Any ideas on where to start a more detailed search or where to get a detailed electrical manual for this truck?
Thanks in advance,

i am new to this site so i hope that someone can help me. i need to remove the rear seat of my 2004 f-150 supercab and am not quite sure how to do it. i know the little older models was just a quick lift up of the seat and she would pop out. these seem to be a little more difficult. i know some of you's are very knowledgeable in these vehicles, so any help would be appreciated.
also there have been some discussion on vibration and such. i do know that the rear differential was causing some probs. i think that it has been such a prob that there is talk of a possible recall on them. i know that they are fixing them in my area free of charge. my bro has a 04 as well and he had his done. also he has had probs with his 4wheel drive system. i hope this helps a bit. any help would be appreciated. thanks.

What year is your truck? DId you recently change or reconnect the battery?
Usually if the battery has been disconnected, it will take a few drive cycles for the OBD system to "re-learn" and once that happens, the emissions codes will be "ready".
#1358 of 2180 what is the rub,eh?
Jul 24, 2005 (11:18 am)
I have a 2004 F150.Driver window and passenger window rubs something marking the window sort of a very shallow scratch you can feel with a fingernail but cleans up.out of the 4 times to the dealer they replaced window seals on third visit.That was ok for awhile.Last visit they just cleaned the window tracks.It seems this scratching would tear window tinting film.I would really like to get the windows tinted because my A/C blows weak,which seems to be a Ford thing at least it was on my wife's Escape.
#1359 of 2180 2005 F250 Diesel Oil Leak at 8000 miles
Jul 25, 2005 (4:37 am)
Had the oil changed (by Ford) about a month ago (for the second time) and noticed a pool of oil in my driveway the day after. I think this may be an unrelated leak, but who knows.
The oil is visibly dripping from the plug with the allen wrench mating hole in it, located right behind the crankshaft pulley/vibration damper on the underside of the engine (near the front) and has coated the steer axle frame.
Ford ran a diesel leak diagnostic and replaced the CAM position sensor, and I was informed the ICP was not leaking after this repair. Well, the leak in the plug is still there.
Has anybody else had this problem? I'm pulling my hair out trying to get a resolution from the dealer and have fallen into the cycle, take it to Ford, Ford keeps it for 2-3 days and says the problem is fixed, and returns it still leaking. Going on 1 month and 3 visits to the shop.
#1360 of 2180 2005 F-250 6.0 airline blowing off
Jul 25, 2005 (7:52 pm)
I just bought a 05 F-250 and have 2k miles on it. On Friday I was driving about 55 or 60 and went to pass a big rig..as my rpms increased to pass I heard a loud noise....thought I had a blowout at first but noticed a noise from the engine and an immediate loss of power. I pulled over, popped open the hood and the hose right behind the shroud had blown off and and hit the hood so hard I got a small dent. I suppose this has happened to someone else out there because my brother in law had the same thing happen to his 04 excursion (minus the dent). The clamp on the hose is a metric 11 and if anyone has any idea why it happened (other than the clamp being loose) please let me know.

I have been having similar issues. My 2005 F150 stalls and dies out during slow speeds and also having starting problems. After four attemts the dealer finally determined that the PCM(Power control Module) was bad. It has been in the shop for three weeks now. Let you know what happens. Oh, and nothing ever registered on the on board computer so it made it even harder to pinpoint.
