If your truck has the Reset feature:

  1. Place ignition switch in the Off position.
  2. Find the module that is located on the righthand side of the instrument panel below the glove compartment.
  3. Insert a suitable phillips head screwdriver through .2 inch diameter hole located on module near the reset sticker and lightly press down and hold.
  4. While still lightly pressing down on screwdriver, turn ignition switch to Run position. The emissions maintenance lamp should remain illuminated for as long as the screwdriver is pressing down. Hold screwdriver in position for approximately five seconds.
  5. Remove screwdriver, lamp should go out after approximately two to five seconds, indicating the module has been reset. If lamp fails to go out, repeat reset procedure. Place ignition switch in the Off position.
  6. Turn ignition switch to Run position and check to ensure emission maintenance lamp is illuminated for two to five seconds. After approximately two to five seconds the lamp should turn off.

I just checked module and it does not have a reset button
Ford Mechanic: Lurch, Ford Cert. replied 10 years ago

There are 3 different types of Modules & only 1 can be manually reset.
Check your Module & see if it has these numbers:
E5TZ-12B514-C or 14-A

If not, check behind Glove Box for the Module with those numbers

If you find it, program as above.
If not let me know

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
