#5 - Battery Dead problem of the 2004 Ford F-150
The vehicle involved is a 2004 Ford F-150. The VIN of the car is 1FTPX14534_. I have a 2004 Ford f150, with a 5. 4l engine. I went to have battery replaced and after replacement the engine would not idle. The repair firm I had taken it to, called champion Ford in sandy, utah and the technician told them Ford had a service bulletin out saying that the vehicle might not idle and the engine will shut down after the battery has been disconnected and replaced. They had to take my truck over there and the computer had to be reprogrammed. What is a person to do, have the computer reprogrammed every time the battery dies or is replaced? sounds to like Ford should have had a recall to correct the problem. That's a nasty surprise for anyone. It was 03/27/09 when this battery dead issue occurred.

#6 - Battery Dead problem of the 2003 Ford F-150
The vehicle is a 2003 Ford F-150. In April 2008 the battery was dead on the truck. Battery was replaced and truck still would not start. After we were finally able to get the truck started it was taken to the local dealer where it remained for 2-3 weeks. Service department determined that the cluster ($700. 00) was bad and replaced it. (we have since been told by other mechanics, if the cluster was bad we would not have been able to start the truck, so why was it replaced. ) the truck was brought back home and the next time it rained the battery was again dead. Again truck was taken to the dealer service department. This time they determined that it was leaking around the window gasket ($100) and replaced this. 2 months later another rain and again a dead vehicle. Truck was again taken to the dealer where it remained another 2 weeks. After several phone calls and complaints it was determined that they did not know what was wrong with the vehicle and needed to call the main technicians. We still have no idea what is wrong with the vehicle and keep it in the garage. Truck can't be driven if there is any hint of rain because we don't want to end up stranded. We live in a small community and this is the second truck, same model and year, that we know of in our area that is having this same problem. Obviously there is some issue with the electrical systems in these vehicles as it does not appear to be limited to a few. This truck only has 37, 000 miles on it and is a complete waste to have unless we lived in the desert. I think all Ford owners need to ban together and sue Ford for aggravation and non functional vehicles. Never again will I waste my time buying a Ford vehicle. The failure date was Tue., Apr. 15, 2008.

#8 - Battery Dead problem of the 1997 Ford F-150
The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Ford F-150 is 1FTEX08L0V_. I recently purchased a 1997 Ford F-150. I had parked it for a few weeks until I sold my chevy tahoe. When I went to start it the battery was dead. I charged the battery and when I reconnected it I went in the cab and could smell burning plastic and all the lights on the dash were on, even though the key was in my hand. I looked under the dash and found that the gem module was sizzling and smoking. I quickly got out and disconnected the battery. I have no doubt that it would have started on fire had I not noticed it in time. It surprised me that no fuses were blown. I looked online and found that this is a very common thing for alot of 1997 - 2003 Fords and was wondering why this hasn't been recalled. I worked for a chevy dealership in marquette mi so I know a little about recalls and I feel that this is very unsafe and it should not be an expense put on the consumer. I think that with the decline in sales for the american automakers they should be taking care of these faulty modules. I am currently in the process of replacing it so im not sure how much it will cost me but im expecting it to be between $120- $160. This issue happened on Monday, Nov. 17, 2008.
