Thanks Chuck. We only use this truck for long trips and it hasn't been driven more than a few miles since July. The 2001 is used a lot though, especially in the mtns.
The link doesn't ref the message cntr we have but after sleeping on it, I seem to remember something with the reset button and a reference to the oil. Documentation for the msg cntr we have has been fairly lacking ,IIRC digging into it on the last trip.
Nice thing is Ford didn't chg filter type or oil weight between the 01 and the 09, so only have to stock one type when on sale.
So, now we're rushing to get the trailer and 09 ready for a couple thousand mile trip back east, and return, leaving today as soon as we can tie up loose ends to beat some potential snow forcasts.
I still need to find the code for the door, my SO said it was on a card in the owner's manual and now can't find it. First I heard abt it, or I would have already written it in the trailer.
I did cut a regular key blank to unlock the door and will put that in the trailer until we find where the card is or the code is hidden under the dash, etc. Usually she has this stuff memorized, I can't ever remember...
Also, we bought a couple of blank electronic keys on eBay in the spring and when we get to our destination will program them.
Pretty sure you have to pay the dealer to find the door code via the computer.
Also, you need two good keys to program any replacement keys. Was easy to do. The hardware store cut the keys for me but told me "You know these won't work, don't you?" Certainly didn't before I programmed them.
