2002 Ford F150 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 70000 miles
I had no problems with vehicle until a week ago. It drove fine, then when I went to start it, the engine cranked, but it got no fuel for start. I had it towed home and let it sit overnight. The next morning it started. I drove it in and out of my drive way, turned it off and it would not start.
The next morning it would start once under the following conditions.
I turned the ignition key to accessories until the seat belt alarm went off. There would be this sound like something engaging/bump. Then the car would start. This does not work a second time if the car is driven. I have to wait until the next day.
If I disengage the battery for more than 20 minutes, and then do the same thing with the start. Leave it on accessary until after the seat belt signal and I hear that bump.
It only starts if I hear that bump or engagement.
I have looked at the fuel switch that turns off when you get in accident. The restart button has not been popped. It was in reading about the reset switch that I learned the trick about leaving the key at accessory for 10 seconds from my users manual.
Once the vehicle starts it runs fine. The engine light does not stay on. All the guages on the console suggest everything is fine, and there is half a tank of gas. We have checked all the fuses and relays, everything seems to be fine. We have checked the wires coming from the passenger kick panel to under the hood and all are good.
have the same problem?
