I don't know the code. All I know is that I let me friend borrow the truck and he told me that he had a mechanic friend disable the ABS. I did the inspection of the fuses and everything looks good. What do I do now?

I already have the replacement transmission that I want to have installed in my vehicle, I only want an estimate to have the transmission put in.

I was driving and my car and it started to lose power. Push gas and it struggled to move, RPM's dropped and then it just died. I started it again and it was fine idling, but when I pushed the gas it loses power and dies. While in the process of losing power, the oil gauge would move back and forth very fast. Help!

I seem to have narrowed it down to the power distribution box. I have pulled all fuse and it doesn't seem to make a difference. When I pull the power cable from the solenoid that goes to the distribution box. The drain stops. Whats the problem and how do I fix it. Thanks Red Rider

Usually happens within first 3 miles after starting cold. Makes a low steady hum, lasts probably 2-5 minutes. Doesn't affect the driving. Just me :-)

forward it works normal

When I turn the truck off, the interior lights and only the left side mirror lights stay on?

When starting and driving the O/D off light flashes, the engine light is on and it goes forward in all gears but Park. Transmission does not change up when driving. I noticed it is low on fluid. That's the first thing I am going to try. Where do I go from there??? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you

When I start my car lately, the A/C blower fan hesitates 15 - 30 seconds before beginning to blow air. This has only started about 5 weeks ago. Never had the problem before. Took it in to the service department and they said this is normal and all cars do it. I told them it hasn't done it up until 5 weeks ago. Bought it new in 2006. I think that something like this that never happened before and suddenly starts happening is an issue and that Ford is feeding me a line of crap. Any help out there?

over the past 3 months if the vehicle sits for several days it drains the battery way down. when its running it seems to take a charge. my volt meter shows a drain when i touch it from the negative post to the negative cable, while the positive cable is hooked up. it also indicates a drain if i touch it to the housing of the alternator. what is the problem and how can it be corrected. thank you

I've unplugged all fuses and relays that has anything to do with lights and unplugged the switch and the parking lights still stay on
