Ford F-150 owners have reported 10 problems related to transmission solenoid (under the power train category).
I backed out of my driveway with no issues. I got to work and parked my truck. Later that night I went to move my truck to the front of the warehouse and my truck would not go into reverse. When it is in neutral and I press the gas the truck will move forward. In the past week I have replaced the battery, starter relay solenoid which sits on the firewall, and the neutral safety switch or transmission gear control solenoid as I have heard it called. None of this has fixed my truck and I do not think it should be going out at 109,xxx miles. Low income and rely heavily on my truck to get around.

The contact owns a 2000 Ford F-150. The contact stated that the vehicle failed to start. The contact depressed the starter solenoid in the engine compartment in an attempt to start the vehicle and the vehicle rolled away in reverse despite being secured in park. Additionally, the contact attempted to stop the vehicle when he crashed into a pole and then a fence. The contact sustained multiple contusions and a bruised rib. A police report was not filed. The vehicle was taken to a collision center but was not inspected to determine the cause of the failure. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 102,000.

The eco boost v 6 motor started missing under acceleration causing massive loss of power on the highway. Took the truck to friendly Ford in springfield missouri for immediate repairs. They admitted the cause was a design flaw on the inter cooler which in turn caused failure of three solenoids to fail. July 2013 I was accelerating onto highway and the miss fire happened again and did not quit until I pulled off the road and turned the motor off and then restarted the engine. The service rep at the Ford dealer reported the problem was extremely common and suspected a recall was coming. I asked him why Ford was not standing behind the obvious and dangerous design flaw and he said he thought they would have to eventually due to the magnitude of the problem. . I was charged $620. 51 to correct very dangerous problems directly related to a Ford design problem.

Safety concern. Solenoid that activates 4 wheel drive failure, causes partial engagement of 4 wheel drive at ant time.

2004 Ford F-150: the transmission will not shift out of 4wd when driving. It will however shift into neutral. The failure was caused by the solenoids which can get wet and short out ruining the actuators. This is a part which Ford knows is defective, because they have created a new part. They currently have a TSB out on this issue. In April of 2006 they started putting water guards on the solenoids to ensure this won't happen. Having a transmission that will not engage properly is a safety hazard.

Iwe solenoid fails to engage 4wd system. 1st failure during ice storm. Dealer replaced iwe. 2nd failure 6 mo's later, dealer replaced iwe added "bare bond tape" to cover over solenoid. 3rd/4th failure has occurred during rainy conditions or after I washed the truck. The 4wd would not engage until I had driven the vehicle over 5 miles. Vehicle back at dealer for same problem 3 times in less than 12 month period.

The contact owns a 2005 Ford F-150. The contact stated that she heard a grinding noise while driving at any speed. The noise was heard intermittenly. The dealer could not duplicate the failure. The vehicle later locked into 4-wheel drive while driving less than 55 mph. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and they found that the solenoid and the switch for the 4-wheel drive were defective. The contact paid $185 to have the vehicle repaired. The dealer was unsure if the repair would correct the failure because the electrical switch was susceptible to water damage. The current and failure mileages were less than 37,217. Updated 08/11/09.

I drive a 2006 Ford f150. In July 2007 I started hearing a grinding noise coming from my front wheels. I brought it to holman Ford in turnersville new jersey. They replaced auto 4wd vacuum solenoid. Now 15 months later the noise is back and they said their parts and labor warranty is only good for 12 months. I know other people who had the same problem but they said there is no recall. It is obvious there is a defect.
The contact owns a 2005 Ford F-150. The contact stated that the gear shifter could not be removed from park until after several attempts. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnosis where the shift lock solenoid, brake switch and brake module were replaced however, the failure continued. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 200.
Overdrive solenoid failed.
