#82 of 131 anti-theft??
Sep 23, 2009 (6:43 pm)
I have a 99 F-150. One morning I tried to start my truck and all it would do is turn over. After a few tries it started, but after you shut it off again it might start, it might not. We noticed that when you turn the key and the THEFT light is blinking fast it will not start, but when you turn the key and the THEFT light stays on then it will start. Once it starts it runs great. I've heard this is called anti-theft mode. I've also heard that it may not be recognizing the key. What else could cause this or how much would a dealer charge to fix something like this??

Here is what the answer to your code problem:
Intake Air Control circuit malfunction
Take it in, shouldn't be too much. Especially if you tell them in advance what's wrong. Good luck,

Can you sit there when it won't start, and by turning the key again, usually get the truck to start? At any rate, go to Auto Zone, get them to put the machine on the truck and see what codes you get. Sounds like you have a computer that is malfunctioning. Did you notice anything that it might have been doing before this started? Engine light, anything?

P0340 Camshaft Position Sensor circuit fault . There is no po-344 code. Now, this may make you feel a little bad... "and I am yelling"... "DID YOU REPLACE THE STUPID SENSOR"???????????? This is bad, this is why your engine is cutting out and this is why your "check engine light is on"... if you don't know how, take it in to the garage and tell them to replace the sensor. Now, that wasn't hard was it. It's causing your computer chip to act up, which is causing your truck to miss. Doesn't matter if it's in intermittent or not.. it "needs to be replaced".

Go in to Ford, not the same one that wants $1,500 for the tranie.. have them hook it up to the diagnostic machine. That should give you some error codes that can tell you what might be causing it. If you don't want to go to Ford, take it to Auto Zone.. NOT discount auto..Auto Zone. If you have codes and you don't know what they mean, give me a hollar at my regular email addy. They might not let me post it, so you know the sign for and so write to me once you have had it diagnosed.. with code numbers. emtdawn "at" earthlink.net and let me know the numbers of the codes.

#88 of 131 2006 F150 started, made a metallic breaking noise!!
Oct 31, 2009 (10:06 pm)
I have a 2006 F150, aftermarket remote start. I pushed the remote start today, it started, made a horrible metallic sound, like something broke, which I assumed was the starter. I changed the starter, which was acting up slightly for a few months prior, still won't start. I checked all fuses, they are all ok. I hear the fuel injectors engaging, all the lights work fine. I had an issue with the remote start and the PAS system a few months ago, and learned how to disconnect the remote start. I did that, still won't start, and my arming system is fine, meaning that the vehicle is not armed while I am trying to start. I wonder if the sound I heard was the flywheel teeth breaking?? I looked at the old starter and there are 6 teeth with excessive wear, like a stripped screw. The rest seem decent. Any ideas??? The truck has about 46K miles and my husband is pissed. PISSED. I was a mechanic for several years, and this one has me stuck. I've changed a hundred starters and never had this problem. The new starter bench tested at Oreilly's ok.. but, maybe I'll try checking it myself.. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By the way, today the inside unlock buttons will not unlock the doors. I have to manually open the pass. door from the inside. Rechecked starter, and it is good.. Totally lost here.

Well.. In the light of day I found a fusible link (aka-a bigger fuse in the fuse box for the normal person) that had blown. I didn't see it in the dark, but went today and re-checked every fuse. Problem solved!

My 2001 F150 is doing exactly the same thing. Did you ever find out what the problem was?
