Have you ever noticed if the instrument cluster lights stay on after the truck has been turned off and you have locked the doors?

No Notting is lighting up. I havé check on internet and aime is saying That it might be batteur système management that needs to be reset. Or thé key sensing switch.
Ford Mechanic: EricFromCT, Ford Technician replied 1 year ago

The most common problem for the F150 to drain the battery, and quickly, is the gearshift lever. They have problems with the gearshift lever and it does not indicate to the computer that the vehicle is in park and the modules do not power down and cause the battery to die.

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.
