yes .. it turns out the ignition is somehow wired into the door panel with the window and door lock controls .. we popped the door panel off and some wires were kind of loose .. pushed them back in and it has started fine ever since

could be your cam sensor. I had replaced mine when the engine stopped on me. according to your millage you have, it might be covered under warranty. call the dealer first.

what causes the Codes P0470 and the P0299?
I do know the P0470 is Exhaust back pressure and the P0299 is turbo underboost. I just want to know what causes this and how to fix.

I can tell you exactly whats wrong...This has been a common occurance with ford f-series for years...don't know why they haven't owned up to it. The problem is with the GEM (generic electronic module) and it screws down to the back side of the interior fuse panel. This circuit board controls the functions of the things you mentioned plus the auto power window circuit and the heater fan motor, and gauges. The problem is not really the GEM proper, which is a good thing because that circuit board retails for well over $600., but it is due to water entering the cab during rain storms through the cowling and dripping on the GEM case and the top of the fuse box. The water actually enters the fuse box where it shorts the connections that the GEM is plugged into. I just finished a repair on mine for the same thing without replacing the GEM and it's working great. I took pictures and wrote a little narrative on how to fix it. If you're interested, email me at denbe47yahoo.com and put in the subject heading GEM, and I'll email you the directions. It takes only a few tools and probably a couple of hours to get it back on the road.

#100 of 131 F150 Electrical
Mar 17, 2010 (8:17 am)
I am having a problem with my 2007 F150, 5.4. It has 33,000 miles. Recently when it sits unused for 3-4 days, I have an issue when first starting up. The tach and fuel gauge vibrate and take a few seconds to fire up. A clicking sound accompanies the shaking. The message center then indicates a "Tire pressure monitor failure" and the low tire pressure indicator comes on. All resets typically when the truck is shut off and restarted.
Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Question for you ford techs
I had a reading that my FICM was only at half of the voltage so I repleaced the FICM with a new one that came already programed, they told me that all I had to do was take out the old one and put the new one in and it would run. Here lies the problem after installing the new one when I go and start the truck it just makes a clicking noise and the starter does not engage. Do you think by installing the new FICM that computer now needs to get flashed? I had the truck running before I installed the new FICM but it was rough at first, I replaced the FICM the same day that I had it running with the old FICM installed. I even went as far back to installing the old FICM because the truck ran, when I installed the old one the truck did the same thing just clicked and the starter would not engage. So I am thinking that I might need to take the truck into a Ford Dealership and have the computer reflashed?
Please give me your thoughts
