Publication Date: March 4, 2005

FORD:
2003-2005 F-Super Duty

ISSUE:

Some 2003-2005 Super Duty F-Series equipped with a 6.0L diesel engine and a single generator, may exhibit low battery voltage when plowing for an extended period, and while using a salt spreader and/or other lighting accessories added on by the customer.

ACTION:

If the charging system only exhibits the condition with all of the aftermarket accessories in use, there is a 140 AMP service generator available for customer purchase. This is the same generator used in the factory installed snow plow package.

NOTE:THIS REPAIR MAY NOT BE 100% EFFECTIVE ON ALL VEHICLES FOR VARIOUS REASONS. EXAMPLES: AS SNOW PLOW, SANDER/SALTER AND OTHER EQUIPMENT AGE, THEIR ELECTRICAL LOAD DEMAND MAY INCREASE. ALSO, THE TYPE OF PLOWING (SHORT DISTANCE PLOWING) MAY IMPACT THE ABILITY OF THE CHARGING SYSTEM TO COMPENSATE FOR THE DRAW.
