Subject: FTE 97up - loss of power on f150 97

about a week ago I was driving along when I lost all electrical power The
gauges all went to zero, and I continued home on battery power. Then all was
dead. The dealer said there was a problem in the instrument cluster, which
got replaced, along with the fuel gauge, wiiring harness and battery. Truck
is an F-150 1997 Lariant with only 4,000 miles. Triton V-8 4.6. Anyone
else had a similar problem?

Subject: FTE 97up - Remote Starting System

Does anyone know if adding a remote starting system to a Ford truck (1999
F-350 w/V-10 in my case) is possible? Does it do anything to the warranty as
far as Ford is concerned? Will Ford install one? Also, does it matter if the
air-conditioning is in the "on" position when starting the truck or should it
be left "off" until the engine is running? Finally, has anybody found any
companies manufacturing brushguards and visors for the new super duties yet?
Thanks.

Warn has one grillguard in black or chrome. The black grillguard is part
#38050 and is $282 and the chrome is #38051 and is $482. You can contact them
email at CSALS Warn.com I just talked to them today and they will not have
the brushguard for another 6 weeks or so. The grillguard takes all their
winches up to 12,000lbs and uses the oem bumper.

Does your Super Duty have an auto trans or the 6 speed? Performance
Products (www.performanceproducts.com) has a remote starter in their Spring
98 specialty catalog for Ford Trucks and Sport Utility vehicles. The
catalog number is 11F. Looks like a generic unit, says it works with all
vehicles with auto and fuel injection. Once you decide what you want and
install it, why don't you post your experience so that others can learn
from it?

I had some similar "hints" that a problem might be forthcoming. I heard what I
thought was voltage snaps under the dash. The snaps sounded like the flashers
but they weren't on. Then while running down the road at about 65mph I head the
same damn snapping but this time it was faster than the flasher clicks. I really
"know" voltage leaks and I do expect some problems from the sounds that I heard.
I have 39K on the F-150 and have it in for arbitration.

Dunno if the ignition switch kicks the air conditioner out automatically or not.
You have to be a bit careful about hooking wires to the engine etc. Ford, for the
F-150, has two extra termnals for installing two 30 amp relays to control other
OEM equipement. You can serioulsy screw things up by wiring additional components
without following Ford directives. When in doubt don't do it. AND! yes a
warranty for that part that you damage can be voided. The computers can be
damaged with transient voltage spikes coming from some add on device.,

IMHO!

Roy has a deal here.

Be certain that the sales literature says"fully compliant to manufacturers
requirements" or something similar.

Subject: FTE 97up - Extended Warranties and another question

Thanks to all of you who sent advice on extended warranties. I will
choose soon and will share experiences, good or bad.

This is a great group and I am learning lots from the postings. Now a
question for
any of you----does anyone know of a simular group for dodge pickups? The
reason I ask is
that my employer bought 11 97 dodge pu's and 5 have worn out front brake
pads in 14000 mi. I need info badly. We haven't had brake problem with
our Ford pickups!!
As this is a Ford group, could you please email privately to

Thank you again for your help.

Subject: FTE 97up - RECALL

Why is it that no dealer will give me a truck to use for the day when my truck
is in for the recall?My feelings are,if you build a truck,sell a truck(FOR
$34000.00)then you should provide a truck for the guy who has to lose a truck
for a day because you screwed up building it.
