RE: No brake light or turn signal.

Op again. Did turn out to be the multifunction switch. Small local dealer had a switch that worked. Dealer markup was GREAT! But when on the road no choice. Honest took longer to calculate labor time than install. They charged .8 hrs, took .25 hrs from when he drove back till delivery. But again, what can you do. $21 for shop supplies!!!! Non used. $249 total

RE: No brake light or turn signal.

And that bothers the brake lights also?

No brake light or turn signal.

97 E350. As title, neither work. Book shows fuse #11 for brake light switch. Fuse good, but replaced anyway. Seems like all other lights work, tail lights work. Book uses term multifunction switch, fuse ok. LONG way from home, any ideas before I try to get to a Ford dealership?

RE: V10 spins, will not crank...part II

I think the starting in any position is my red gear shift indicator not lining up exactly over the PRND12. It now appears that it only ignites in the P&N range.

V10 spins, will not crank...part II

Ok, fixed my self inflicted problem. Yes, it was a pinched fuel hose that I had looked at at leat 4 times. With a fresh start this AM started over checking everything I had done. The Hellwig supplied nut to hold the L bracket is a piece of 9/32 x4x2 threaded steel plate. There are 3(2 metal,1 rubber) fuel hoses, a parking brake cable and 3 wiring harnesses in front of where this "nut" goes running thru the C channel frame. I had pinched the rubber fuel hose when tighten this plate. Will give Ford a nod for their hose choice. Hose poped back into shape when freed from the pinch. Will be watching this area closely for leaks. Put everything back that I had disconnected chasing the problem and took a short 5 mile loop. Thanks for all of the looks and comments.

RE: V 10 spins will not crank.

Op again. Would this condition throw a code that a reader would detect?

RE: V 10 spins will not crank.

The neutral safety switch is what I'm looking for. Can't find it on YouTube.

RE: V 10 spins will not crank.

The starter spins, the motor does cranks(over). Think I've got it down to the shifter, steering column Just discovered the steering wheel will not lock while in park, after lunch will tear into steering colum and find out about the lock. Been all over the install on the rear axel. No wires could have been pinched on the bolt up. As stated in original post, something real funky with the shifter allowing cranking(over) when placed in any shifter position. But thanks again for the replies. We were planing on heading out west this Saturday.

RE: V 10 spins will not crank.

Tank is at least 90% full. As mentioned in first post, emergency fuel shutoff has not tripped. Never said I disconnected fuel lines?

RE: V 10 spins will not crank.

OK, can hear fuel pump whirring when key is turned to first position, so think I can rule fuel flow is not the problem. Thinking more now has to do with transmission position. Tried jiggling wire harness that goes into side of xmission where shifter cable comes down. Might try jacking rear up to get off blocks later and see if maybe a slight roll of drive shaft it will get something back in sync if no other suggestions. If I do take off the blocks, cannot crawl back under without jacking up again, so not next option.

RE: V 10 spins will not crank.

No. The engine is cranking over.

V 10 spins will not crank.

1997..first time ever will not crank. Usually just touch key and fires right off. Now leading up.. But don't see how this could be the problem. Drove up on some blocks to gain access to install new Hellwig sway bar. Where the L bracket on drivers side attaches on the inside of the frame there are two fuel lines going forward. Was very carefull in not disturbing them to attach top bolt on bracket. Got finished and tried to crank to drive off the lifting blocks. Just spins. Fuel pump fuse OK, removed passenger side panel to check emergency fuel shutoff, OK. Just noticed something else as trying all things, but I can shift the gear shift lever to any position and the starter will spin. I thought would only start in Park?? Old Fords had a shifter problem that you had to lift up on the shift lever to get to crank. Something is not allowing some sensor to not allow to crank. Other than unplugging fuel filter and turning over to see if fuel flow, how can I test fuel pump. Any and all ideas appreciated.

Stickers on bus??

Just saw an article where Nelly was arrested. Tenn troopers stopped his bus( had to be a RV ). Because it didn't display a US Dept of Trans and International Fuel Tax Assoc sticker. What are these stickers? And talk about the nose of the camel getting under the tent. Drugs were found on board.

RE: Need a new interior door skin

Just did mine. The product you want is FRP, fiberglass reinforced plastis. About $25 for 4x8 sheet. A little brittle to cut so put painters tape down first and cut thru tape, helps keep the splinters in place. HD or Lowes both carry it.

RE: metal rv port

Note most of the ports have two styles of roof. The rounded rafters are not as strong as the roofs with the perlens(sp?). If you are subject to high ends and snow, consider the latter. The direction of the roof sheeting is also different. I have one of each.

RE: Sway bars, which one

This is what I was looking for. Both bars are 1.5" and pretty much the same bend. Mounting points are about the same, just different fasteners. Roadmaster is $200 more for my needs. Just trying to find out what the extra $ is for.

Sway bars, which one

Two major providers. Hellwig and roadmaster. The mounting points differ on my rig between the two. One requires some drilling, so install will be a little more involved. Price difference is considerable. So, is there really any difference between the two in performance? Please, not just a go with the easier or cheaper, is there a real performance difference.

Ford E 350 headlight replacement

Looking at swapping out headlights on late 90s Ford. Lots of replacements on ebay but not many seem to be DOT. Most use the same bulbs as what is on now. Anybody done the conversion? Any problems?

RE: BIG Waste Water Tote Wanted

Once saw a TT with a plastic 55 gal drum all plumbed nice and neat. They had it mounted on a good hand truck laying on its side. Looks like all they had to do was disconnect, stand the hand truck up and walk to the dump.
