Hello one question where is located the RCM C310a in my 2005 Ford F-150
Am going to follow like the link you send the step for B4 because the light is off is not working but to let you know I pull the cluster off and then I tapped a little and put it back and work for about 4 times acting normal and the I see the light Cain like blink a little and the go off again so I don't know is maybe a loose connection and also I take my truck to do the detail and they use steam I guess but I am not sure if the light work before because I just buy the truck 1 week ago and I replace the bumper because look like they hit something in the left side corner front so am not sure is that affected the light sorry is maybe too many things so can you tell me what did you think please thank you

  2. What would you like to do regarding your question now?
  3. Do you still need help? Please reply I want you to get equal to or more than what you paid for.
  4. This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. That can prevent me from being able to post answers to your replies.

Thanks Chris
