Hello and welcome to just answer. I value your input to my questions so I may help you better. I f you have multiple codes what to do is disconnect the battery join the two cables for about 15 seconds then reconnect .This erases the codes and resets the ECU then drive for awhile to see which codes come back. Do you also need help with the battery drain still?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I have a code reader which erases codes did that and the codes come back motor runs or seems to run fine but truck doesnt drive right here are the codes might have missed one but seems like way to many codes all at once to a truck that was running good this morning .

Calling me at this time of night is not practical and Im not sure of what this is going to cost but your present answer was not very helpful Sorry
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
To me it seems like there should be a common problem which has caused all these error codes .

thanks for sending me to a ford mechanic
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
i am more concerned now as to why it wont drive properly then i am with the battery drain but both issues are likely related to each other .

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

The tech which was helping has opted out. Would you like my assistance?
