The Check Engine Light has not been on. I had a full service at 90,000, including oil, filter, fuel filters, air filter, trannie, both differ., transfer case, and power steering.
I had the alternator replaced a while back, as was the oil pressure relief valve, and before that a new turbo...
Here is the VIN: 1FTSW21P15EA36904
The way it switched off is reminiscent of the way a 1978 F150 (Explorer) that I owned used to do. On it I replaced the compute module and that fixed it.
When this shutoff happens, all electrical is fine; dash is lit up, headlights were still on, bells sounding to tell me that I opened the door, etc.
Hi I have attached a message from Ford on what I think may be going on with your truck. This indicates that the Fuel Injector Control Module may be at fault which I think may be right on the money. This will cause the concerns that you are talking about. Since the truck is still under warranty until September I would recommmend taking it to the dealership and have them fix it for your 100.00. You would need the scan tool from frod to do most of the testing to actually ver9ify that the FICM is at fault, so that means that there is no actual way for you to do this at home unfortunetly. Bu this is what may be going on in your case. Thank you Steve
