Just recently tried changing radio in f150. Now truck will not start. 2002 crew cab with 5.4l engine
. The stereo required more modification than I was led to believe. I could have very easily jiggled loose some other wiring. I went to start truck and just clicking. I tried starting in park and neutral with no success. I eventually disconnected everything again and tried to start. Then I got clicking noise from fuse box in cab. The dome light and door lights flashing with the clicking noise. I removed a fuse for interior lights and clicking stopped too.
JA: Have you checked the vehicle's manual for this?
Customer: Only to find fuse for interior lights
JA: What year is your F150?
Customer: 2002 f150 crew cab 5.4 l engine
JA: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: i am trying to fix since dead in my driveway. Mostly tried finding info online boards. I did find similar situations online suggesting neutral safety switch, but that was before the fuse box clicking
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I promise to never mess with electrical again once solved
