I dont have any of the above listed items. Do I need to take it to a FORD shop to have them run a scan on it or can I unhook the battery to attempt to reset it?

Any local repair shop can help.
.
Just if its an OBDII ready most part stores can scan it for free

why did you think that it needed a crank sensor?

It was parked for a about 2 1/2 years and would only be driven every now and then because I was overseas. It started acting up after about 2 years and would lose power while my wife was driving and then die. If it would sit for a while she could start it back up and it would make it home. WHen I got home I changed out the fuel pump, coil, and had ignition module checked. Now it starts sometimes and other times it won't. If it does start it might run for a few minutes and then die. When it dies out, it is as if someone turns off the key. It has no rhyme or reason as to when it will start or not.

if you are sure that the Module is good suspect hall effect inside the distributor

Wondering where the crankshaft position sensor is located on my 1992 Fordf150, I have had problems with it starting. It cranks but will not start, check engine light on, read code, it stated EEC module, replaced and still same thing. Was told to check crankshaft sensor.

Hey RTROTTS,

CID sensor is mounted at crankshaft. Disconnect sensor connector and measure resistance across sensor terminals. Resistance should be 300-750 ohms. If resistance is not as specified, replace sensor.

Here are some wiring diagrams so you can test the system to see what is wrong.

Please run some tests and get back to us so we can continue helping you.

Best, Ken
