Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you today.
Tell me, are you getting a DEF message saying that truck will not start after so many miles?
Okay, then you should be good to keep driving until you can get to a Ford dealer. They will need to run some tests on the reductant (DEF) system and see what the actual issue is. Now if you do get that message, don't shut the truck off until you can safely get it parked at the dealer. The dealer can extend the mileage if needed and/or get the repair done. Just FYI, this is probably not a repair you can perform, other than adding some DEF fluid.
You are welcome!

Hello, just wondering if you still need help. I replied back to you several days ago and have not heard back at all. Please let me know. If you no longer need any more help, then that is fine, but please let me know so I can close this session.
Are you sure you got all the fuses back in their correct spots?
Hmmm, well double check that. If they are, then you will need to get a scan tool tat can read/diagnose the codes in the ABS/stability module. You may be forced to go to the dealer.
Yes. 2 ways : crawl under the truck and disconnect the cable from the lever on the transmission then move the trans lever manually out of park. You may also check the owner's manual for the location of the shift lever interlock manual release mechanism. The tow truck driver can help you if needed.
