Subject: Switched Power

I am an amiter radio operator and need to find a switched source of 12v
15amp power in a 1998 F150 XLT. The power outlet and lighter plugs are both
non-switch (hot all the time). Thanks

WOW!
Harris, you need to see the electrical SPECS on that vehicle. HOOKING other
than Ford equipement to the power distribution ckts can get you into real
trouble with the vehicles electronics. Ford has two sources of 2 amp power to
excite relays that are capable of handling 30 amps MAX. Ford (supposedly) says
that if you don't hook up the externals in this manner that you can get bogus
currents to the electronic systems. I think that they said the 30 amp ckt
should come directly off of the battery. You need to check the books on this
one. All that I can say is that all the relays that I have looked at in Ford's
schematics have relay coil quenching.

Thanks Nathan,

I now have my DORA in hand.

Say, are you aware if there is a HOLD on the Remote Keyless Entry
system?

The hold is if you order remote keyless entry without the power seat.
With the Power seat there is no problem. If you order keyless without the
power seat expect a additional month and a half wait time. There was a hold
on the off road package but it is now available.

What in the world does a Remote Keyless Entry have to do with a power seat?
power doors locks I can understand, but power seat? The last I remember, my
remote lock does not effect my seat at all!!!!!

I've used Motorcraft. But I've switched over to Wix (available

Forwarded for Rich Cower

i ordered one about a week before that. my dealer had 3 crew cabs, all
xlt, 2 srw 4x4, 1 drw 4x4 about a week ago.
they might have others, i'm only interested in the crew cabs.
they get a lot of trucks - it's why i ordered from them. mine has a hold

on the skid plates, and they thought maybe
2-3 months. we're in no real hurry on it. they are hassling me to come
down and drive one...i haven't had the time yet.

I need help from some list members in order to save myself
(and others) an enormous amount of time. The problem is
Microsoft email packages. They insist on sending W*NMAIL.DAT
and M*ME attachments (can't spell them because the server
will bounce them).

I know from experience that many have had this problem and
solved it. If you're using a Microsoft package and can
successfully post to the lists, please let me know what
your settings are. This will allow all list members to
participate in the discussions. I will post these settings
in the new "Instruction Guide" I'm putting together for
