Ford F-Series Electrical and Lighting Problems

My right side break light and signal do not work 3 days after a deer ran into the right side on forth door and did some cosmetic damage to the front and rear parts of the rear quarter panel all along the bottom.
I can't be a fuse beacause the left side works.
No damage near the light, but I did notice where the muffler system connects to the body became detached. It has been reattached. Sny ideas?

  • I have a 2003 F150 and my Door Ajar light came on and won't go off. Now I really hate to take it in for just that, but the lights won't go off in the cab and over the bed. My battery is low now although we put a charger on it. I'm thinking the battery might have been low to begin with and this had something to do with the light (strange as it may sound) because once the battery was charged up, the light went off. Anyone else have this problem? By the way, I have the original battery in it and it is over 4 years old.
  • Your battery is getting rather geriatric. Probably doesn't have the capcity it had when new - it gets worse when it's cold out. You might wanna think about replacing it.

    For the door ajar - take some WD-40 and spray it into the door switches. These Ford switches tend to collect sand and grit in them and they eventually start to bind up. Spray the switches and work them back and forth. Keep drowning them until the switch works all the time and the door ajar light stays off.

    I have a 2004 F-150. The interior lights stay off when any door is opened. Also get no door ajar light when doors are opened, and opening doors doesn't turn off radio when ignition is off.
  • Mine was my battery of all things. We charged it up (didn't replace it just yet) and the door ajar light went off and everything else seems to be functioning well. I know I need a new battery since my truck is 4 years old and it's the original, but we tested the battery and after the charge, the cells all seem to be okay. :)

    This seems to be a problem related to the door switches, not one, but all of them. Battery seems fine.
  • This worked (wd 40 on the door switchs)great. Thanks for the advice saved a day lost at the shop and a drain on the battery.

    Last week the door ajar light stayed on (2003 - F350). I thought perhaps I had not shut the door all the way. Nope.

    Worst thing is the electric locks and the windows will not work.

    Fuses have been checked so far. Thoughts?

    I have a 2001 ford f150 king ranch with power windows and moon roof. All of a sudden no windows will work or moon roof. Looked at owners manual and saw were there was a circuit breaker 30 amp under the hood that works all windows. It's number 601. Went to ford and bought new one and installed and they still don't work. Any suggestions???

    I have a 2000 F250 Diesel that has had the alternator replaced three years ago and the batteries 3.5 years. The red battery light stays on but the gauge shows the system is charging. I switched alternators with a 2001 diesel Excursion and the light stayed on. I then switched out the batteries and the light stayed on.
    I put the truck batteries and alternator into the Excursion and the light did not come on
    in the Excursion. I switched the batteries back to see if anything would change over some driving time but nothing has. Any ideas?

    My 2004 F250 SuperDuty automatic 4x4 PSD 6.0 has a relay under the dash (on the drivers side) that intermittently begins to chatter. Nothing I do seems to make it start or stop. Tried turning things on and off. Wiggled wires under dash, no change. It does not do this all the time. So far everything works and no warning lights come on. The truck has 63k and power windows/locks/keyless entry and no modifications or accidents. Ford service manger said to check the batteries? Both are good and the terminals are clean. Charging system is normal. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. (I already tried turning the radio real loud!)

    I had the dealer replace the relay on my 2000 F250. Parts and labor were about 48 bucks and that seemed to take care of the problem

    Thank you for the reply. Do you know the function of the relay in question?

    I have a 1999 ford f-250 I recently purchased. It has about 110,000 miles on it and everything has been ok since I boought it. That is untill this morning. When I heard the engine cranking emidiately I though someone was stealing my truck and they could not start it. After a while the nieghbors fiqured out that no one was in the car and the door were locked. For some strange reason the car was trying to start itself. I have to pull the batteries to stop the cranking.
