There she blows!

My weekend sure isn't going well, my beater B2500 just blew, coming home, noticed it running rough, looked down, no oil pressure. tried to get it to a friends farm nearby, she shutoff, toast, done, fried, siezed up. So now I'm debating find another motor and swapping it. Need to call around and see if I can find one. I just might be nutzo enough to try this, I have a garage and a picker and plenty of tools, just need some moral support from here.

Thanks, it's a 2.5, I got the feeling when I get her home and pull the codes it will prob. say WTF! Funny I was bragging about it the other day saying nothing has ever gone wrong with it and will prob run forever. Famous last words huh. Right now I have 2 down the wife's beater car, gonna fix that after I get the truck home, o2 sensor @ 114 bucks. You're right Bud I'm about down to driving the 78' or Eunice. One good thing about having a herd of cars. Now I have to go out hook up the electric brake controller which I think was pretty easy in the 09', just need to find a place to put it. I might just take you up on that jr. would be a good day to throw some ribs on the grill and slow cookem', course anyday would be a good day for that.

Cool thanks Charlie! I'm looking now too. Of course now I can't get the brake controller to work on the 09'. No power at the harness, don't quite get it, my 05' took about 10 mins. to get rolling.

I put the relays in, they're for the charging the battery, I did put them in. I noticed in the owners manual I should have a 30 amp fuse in the #17 pos for the brake controller, no fuse and only 1 contact for a fuse, I've been surfing around and read one place that on 4X2 reg. cabs, Ford in their ultimate wisdom didn't complete the wiring for the controller, and you have to take it to someplace to be installed, if this is true that would be total BS and will be one irrate customer when I take this thing back to the dealer.

this is true, I had to 1/2 wire the 02, and the 03. I just ran a new wire, and stayed away from instaling 1 in the fuse box. when my 89 was new, the small piece of wireing harness to complete the job was in the glove box, so you probably can get it from ford for some $$$$$. probably costs them about .05 too make tho.

In my 05, there's relays for the Left and Right turn signals (for the trailer) and .... something else...forget right now. You DID find the plug up under the dash (near radio), right?

Yep, in the 09's it plugs into a dummy slot on the back side of little tray next to the steering column, it's where the oem controller would go, what hacks me off is I supposedly have a towing pkg, which came with a hitch both types of plug connectors and a harness that was the glove box along with a relay and a cartiridge fuse, everything is there except power to the plug, I honestly don't get that, everything there except completing the circuit with a hot wire and have no idea where that would tie in. I'm about ready to own nothing but 60's vehicles where you can actually work on them.

The dead truck is home, did it without the controller, wasn't that far and gave myself plenty of room to stop. I pulled the codes this what came up 1. P-R.I.P 2. P-WTF! 3. P-ROTFL. I think my code reader has a sense of humor.....myabe not and it's just sadistic.
