  • BROKEN OR CORRODED BOLT ON BATTERY TERMINAL
Publication Date: September 22, 2005

FORD:
2002-2005 Excursion
2002-2006 F-Super Duty

ISSUE:

Some 2002-2006 F-Super Duty and 2002-2005 Excursion vehicles may exhibit a broken or corroded bolt on the battery terminal (positive or negative side). Until recently, the only way to service this issue was to replace the entire 14B060 wire harness.

ACTION:

Order and install only the bolt and nut. Do not replace the entire harness. Ensure the bolt’s head is fully flushed against the terminal (the square portion of the bolt shank immediately below the bolt head fully engaged in the corresponding square bolt opening on the side of the battery terminal body). Tighten the nut to 48 lb-in (5 N-m).
