2003 Ford F150 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 80000 miles
truck won't start consistently but trip/odometer gauge stays lit with dashes not numbers, under dash I can hear a rapid ticking/crackling sound. Fuel pump is new after same problem over a month ago. Battery is new. After-market auto car starter was installed before I purchased, could this be part of the problem?
Local Ford dealer did diagnostic check and found that the alternator was bad but my mechanic tested and it was fine.
My mechanic found shorted wires in the drivers door, and engine side of firewall, and along the frame rail under truck bed.
have the same problem?
