RE: Ford e350 airbag light 1997

Any idea where the RCM might be located? Ok, read more about this. My light is constant, no flashing codes. Reading indicates that the default is armed, so should probably deploy if an accident. My luck, even with the battery disconnected, fooling with it will make it blow. Been living with it on for some time now, guess just keep on going.

RE: Ford e350 airbag light 1997

Yes there is a passenger side bag. What is RCM? Have a full time scan gauge plugged in, no codes. All wiring seems to be in good shape.

Ford e350 airbag light 1997

I have changed the passenger seat base with a base that allows the seat to swivel and face the rear. There is only one wire harness under it with 2 pins. Since I have done this, the airbag light (yellow) in the bottom left side of the dash display will not go out. I’ve reset the harness many times, but can’t get it to go out. Ideas?

RE: Ford 6.8 v10 E350

Op here, really great pics! This is a good series on what we have to go thru. Nothing like a F series, which I also have. Looks like the electrodes were about gone on those plug pictures, how many miles were on them? Your sig looks like this might be an 03? My fuel rails look a little different, but basically the same. Still looking for the flat hour rate discrepancy. Ok, just read all of the link previous posts. Answered most of my questions

Ford 6.8 v10 E350

Checking labor rates for a spark plug change. Mine is 97 and was quoted 5.2 hr flat rate. For the same e350 but a 2005 the rate was only 3.8. I know the early ones like I have, have short thread pattern that tend to spit plugs, but the 05 had the problem of snapping plugs when they were remove, one problem for another. I know the middle plugs on both sides are REAL tight to get to, but on both Year models. Fuel rails etc are in the way. So why would there be an hour and half difference for the 2 models?

RE: Alternator amps?

Op here. 2 holes in the "Y". Reddish hue on the windings. So 130?.

Alternator amps?

1997 E350 6.8 . How can I tell what is the rated amps for this alternator? There are no visible tags or markings. A place I read says all 6.8 have 130 amp, another says could be 110 or 130. Nothing in my Ford book says.

RE: Vinyl peel and stick material

That wrap would probably not work on anything but flat cabinet surfaces. Raised panel, any groves,radius corners would be out.

Battery disconnect wiring

On the house batteries, do you break the positive or negative on the disconnect. Am seeing it done both ways?

RE: Batt discharge rate

Op, 2oldman, that was a good read, thank you. So the answer to my question per that read was lead acid will discharge " 1 to 15%" per month with a whole lot of "depends". AGMs will discharge 1 to 3% per month. After that read, Wish I could get some GC batts in my confined space, just not enough head room.

RE: Batt discharge rate

Op again. My question was what should you expect as "normal" or acceptable discharge of a 12 volt wet cell that is connected to nothing, just sitting on the floor. .10v per week, month?

RE: Batt discharge rate

OP again, don't know which one was down stream, got shuffled. Using a Schumacher shipnshore. Set to charge @15 amp, deep cycle. Each one charged for over 12 hrs. Charger shows charged to 100 %. These are MAXX everstarts, 29DC.

Batt discharge rate

I have two 12v deep cycles, will be 3 years old next month(warranty) Batt 1 was charged to 13.4v, next day 13.05 then 12.71 then 12.61 then 12.53 Batt 2 was charged to 13.64v, next day 13.21 then 13.12 then 13.06 These are currently just siting on the basement floor, not connected to anything. What should if anything be a "normal" discharge rate just sitting?

RE: Chevy 8.1 Engine Issues Again!

Well, Seafoam can be bad on 02 sensors. Loaded up my 6.8 E350 with Seafoam, and, and within 20 miles it had knocked enough crud loose to cause a check engine light, "faulty 02 sensor".

RE: V10 temp guage

The sensor in question is located right behind the thermostat on some type of crossover that carries collant to both cylinder banks. I'll see if I can find a new wire harness for the sensor. BUT my real question is about the red high temp light and it's operation in conjunction with the temp gauge. Thanks!

RE: V10 temp guage

Scan gauge will clear the code, but it keeps coming back. Just want to know if there is a major problem, the red temp light will still come on even if the gauge needle doesn't rise.

V10 temp guage

97 Ford v10 had a p0118 error code, bad coolant temp sensor, replaced. Still get code. Now the Cold Hot gauge doesn't work, stays below the C. My scan gauge is showing a constant temp of 40* after engine is warm. There is an idiot temp light on the dash. If one doesn't work does the red dash light still operate if an overheat condition exists? The light does come on, as do all of the other lights when you turn the ignition on, then goes out as it should. Can live without the gauge for now, just need to know if the light works off of a different circuit.

RE: What's left of Our Progressive EMS Unit

On my portable, all 4 screws holding down the contractor backed out and one jammed under the contact.

RE: Blinking led

Mex, more detail please.

Blinking led

In one of my overhead lights I have installed a small led bulb. It has 4 rows of 3 leds mounted on a small circuit board. One row of lights have started blinking all others are ok. Any way I can fix or clip out that one row without turning off the other rows.
