Ford F-150 - 2013 Fuse Box Diagram

PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION
WARNING:
Airbags DO NOT inflate slowly or gently, and the
risk of injury from a deploying airbag is the greatest close to the
trim covering the airbag module.
WARNING:
All occupants of your vehicle, including the driver,
should always properly wear their safety belts, even when an
airbag supplemental restraint system is provided.
WARNING:
Always transport children 12 years old and under in
the back seat and always properly use appropriate child
restraints.
WARNING:
Never place your arm over the airbag module as a
deploying airbag can result in serious arm fractures or other
injuries.
WARNING:
Airbags can kill or injure a child in a child seat.
NEVER place a rear-facing child seat in front of an active airbag.
If you must use a forward-facing child seat in the front seat, move the
seat all the way back.
WARNING:
Do not attempt to service, repair, or modify the
airbag supplemental restraint systems or its fuses. Contact your
authorized dealer as soon as possible.
WARNING:
Several airbag system components get hot after
inflation. Do not touch them after inflation.
WARNING:
If the airbag has deployed, the airbag will not
function again and must be replaced immediately. If the airbag is
not replaced, the unrepaired area will increase the risk of injury in a
collision.

WARNING:
Do not lean your head on the door. The side airbag
could injure you as it deploys from the side of the seat back.
WARNING:
Do not attempt to service, repair, or modify the
airbag, its fuses or the seat cover on a seat containing an airbag.
Contact your authorized dealer as soon as possible.
WARNING:
If the side airbag has deployed,
the airbag will not
function again. The side airbag system (including the seat)
must be inspected and serviced by an authorized dealer.
If the
airbag is not replaced, the unrepaired area will increase the risk of
injury in a collision.
The side airbags are located on the outboard side of the seat backs of
the front seats. In certain lateral collisions, the airbag on the side
affected by the collision will be inflated. The airbag was designed to
inflate between the door panel and occupant to further enhance the
protection provided occupants in side impact collisions.
The system consists of the
following:
a tag on the seat back indicating
that side airbags are found on
your vehicle
side airbags located inside the
seat back of the driver and front
passenger seats.
Crash sensors and monitoring system with readiness
indicator. See
Crash Sensors and Airbag Indicator
later in
this chapter.
Front passenger sensing system.
Note:
The passenger sensing system will deactivate the passenger
seat-mounted side airbag if it detects an empty, unbuckled passenger seat.
The design and development of the side airbag system included
recommended testing procedures that were developed by a group of
automotive safety experts known as the Side Airbag Technical Working
Group. These recommended testing procedures help reduce the risk of
injuries related to the deployment of side airbags.

SAFETY CANOPY
²
CURTAIN AIRBAGS
WARNING:
Do not place objects or mount equipment on or near
the headliner at the siderail that may come into contact with a
deploying curtain airbag. Failure to follow these instructions may
increase the risk of personal injury in the event of a collision.
WARNING:
Do not lean your head on the door. The curtain
airbag could injure you as it deploys from the headliner.
WARNING:
Do not attempt to service, repair, or modify the
curtain airbags, its fuses, the A, B, or C pillar trim, or the
headliner on a vehicle containing curtain airbags. Contact your
authorized dealer as soon as possible.
WARNING:
All occupants of your vehicle including the driver
should always wear their safety belts even when an airbag SRS
and curtain airbag is provided.
WARNING:
To reduce risk of injury, do not obstruct or place
objects in the deployment path of the curtain airbag.
WARNING:
If the curtain airbags have deployed,
the curtain
airbags will not function again. The curtain airbags
(including the A, B and C pillar trim and headliner) must be
inspected and serviced by an authorized dealer.
If the curtain
airbag is not replaced, the unrepaired area will increase the risk of
injury in a collision.
The Safety Canopy will deploy during significant side collisions or when a
certain likelihood of a rollover event is detected by the rollover sensor.
The Safety Canopy is mounted to the roof side-rail sheet metal, behind
the headliner, above each row of seats. In certain lateral collisions or
rollover events, the Safety Canopy will be activated, regardless of which
seats are occupied. The Safety Canopy is designed to inflate between the
side window area and occupants to further enhance protection provided
in side impact collisions and rollover events.

TOWING A TRAILER
WARNING:
Do not exceed the GVWR or the GAWR specified on
the certification label.
WARNING:
Towing trailers beyond the maximum recommended
gross trailer weight exceeds the limit of the vehicle and could
result in engine damage, transmission damage, structural damage, loss
of vehicle control, vehicle rollover and personal injury.
Note:
For information on electrical items such as fuses or relays, see the
Fuses
chapter.
Your vehicle’s load capacity is designated by weight, not by volume, so
you cannot necessarily use all available space when loading a vehicle.
Towing a trailer places an additional load on your vehicle’s engine,
transmission, axle, brakes, tires and suspension. Inspect these
components periodically during, and after, any towing operation.
Load Placement
To help minimize how trailer movement affects the vehicle when driving:
Load the heaviest items closest to the trailer floor.
Load the heaviest items so they are centered between the left and
right side trailer tires.
Load the heaviest items above the trailer axles or just slightly forward
toward the trailer tongue. Do not allow the final trailer tongue weight
to go above or below 10–15% of the loaded trailer weight.
Select a tow bar with the correct rise or drop. When both the loaded
vehicle and trailer are connected, the trailer frame should be level, or
slightly angled down toward the vehicle, when viewed from the side.
When driving with a trailer or payload, a slight takeoff vibration or
shudder may be present due to the increased payload weight. Additional
information regarding proper trailer loading and setting your vehicle up
for towing is noted under
Load limit
in the
Load Carrying
chapter and
in the
RV & Trailer Towing Guide,
available at your authorized dealer.

Snowplowing with your Air Bag Equipped Vehicle
WARNING:
Do not attempt to service, repair, or modify the air
bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) or its fuses. See your
Ford or Lincoln Mercury dealer.
WARNING:
Additional equipment such as snowplow equipment
may effect the performance of the air bag sensors increasing the
risk of injury. Please refer to the
Body Builders Layout Book
for
instructions about the appropriate installation of additional equipment.
WARNING:
All occupants of the vehicle, including the driver,
should always properly wear their safety belts, even when an air
bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) is provided.
Your vehicle is equipped with a driver and passenger air bag
Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) The SRS is designed to activate in
certain frontal and offset frontal collisions when the vehicle sustains
sufficient longitudinal deceleration.
Careless or high speed driving while plowing snow which results in
sufficient vehicle decelerations can deploy the air bag. Such driving also
increases the risk of accidents.
Never remove or defeat the “tripping mechanisms” designed into the
snow removal equipment by its manufacturer. Doing so may cause
damage to the vehicle and the snow removal equipment as well as
possible air bag deployment.
Engine temperature while plowing
When driving with a plow, your engine may run at a higher temperature
than normal because the attached snowplow blade will restrict airflow to
the radiator.
If you are driving more than 15 miles (24 kilometers) at temperatures
above freezing, angle the plow blade either full left or full right to
provide maximum airflow to the radiator.
If you are driving less than 15 miles (24 kilometers) at speeds up to
45 mph (72 km/h) in cold weather, you will not need to worry about
blade position to provide maximum airflow.

PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION
WARNING:
Airbags do not inflate slowly or gently, and the risk
of injury from a deploying airbag is the greatest close to the trim
covering the airbag module.
WARNING:
All occupants of your vehicle, including the driver,
should always properly wear their safety belts, even when an
airbag supplemental restraint system is provided.
WARNING:
Always transport children 12 years old and under in
the back seat and always properly use appropriate child restraints.
WARNING:
Never place your arm over the airbag module as a
deploying airbag can result in serious arm fractures or other injuries.
WARNING:
Airbags can kill or injure a child in a child seat.
NEVER place a rear-facing child seat in front of an active airbag.
If you must use a forward-facing child seat in the front seat, move the
seat all the way back.
WARNING:
Do not attempt to service, repair, or modify the
airbag supplemental restraint systems or its fuses. Contact your
authorized dealer as soon as possible.
WARNING:
Several airbag system components get hot after
inflation. Do not touch them after inflation.
WARNING:
If the airbag has deployed, the airbag will not
function again and must be replaced immediately. If the airbag is
not replaced, the unrepaired area will increase the risk of injury in a
crash.

SIDE AIRBAGS
WARNING:
Do not place objects or mount equipment on or near
the airbag cover, on the side of the seat backs (of the front seats), or
in front seat areas that may come into contact with a deploying airbag.
Failure to follow these instructions may increase the risk of personal injury
in the event of a crash.
WARNING:
Do not use accessory seat covers. The use of
accessory seat covers may prevent the deployment of the side
airbags and increase the risk of injury in an accident.
WARNING:
Do not lean your head on the door. The side airbag
could injure you as it deploys from the side of the seat back.
WARNING:
Do not attempt to service, repair, or modify the
airbag, its fuses or the seat cover on a seat containing an airbag,
as you could be seriously injured or killed. Contact your authorized
dealer as soon as possible.
WARNING:
If the side airbag has deployed, the airbag will not
function again. The side airbag system (including the seat) must
be inspected and serviced by an authorized dealer. If the airbag is not
replaced, the unrepaired area will increase the risk of injury in a crash.
The side airbags are located on the outboard side of the seat backs of
the front seats. In certain lateral crashes, the airbag on the side affected
by the crash will be inflated. The airbag was designed to inflate between
the door panel and occupant to further enhance the protection provided
occupants in side impact crashes.

TOWING A TRAILER
WARNING:
Do not exceed the GVWR or the GAWR specified on
the certification label.
WARNING:
Towing trailers beyond the maximum recommended
gross trailer weight exceeds the limit of your vehicle and could
result in engine damage, transmission damage, structural damage, loss
of vehicle control, vehicle rollover and personal injury.
Note:
For information on electrical items such as fuses or relays, see the
Fuses
chapter.
Your vehicle’s load capacity designation is by weight, not by volume, so
you cannot necessarily use all available space when loading a vehicle.
Towing a trailer places an extra load on your vehicle’s engine,
transmission, axle, brakes, tires and suspension. Inspect these
components periodically during, and after, any towing operation.
Load Placement
To help minimize how trailer movement affects your vehicle when
driving:
Load the heaviest items closest to the trailer floor.
Load the heaviest items centered between the left and right side
trailer tires.
Load the heaviest items above the trailer axles or just slightly forward
toward the trailer tongue. Do not allow the final trailer tongue weight
to go above or below 10–15% of the loaded trailer weight.
Select a tow bar with the correct rise or drop. When both the loaded
vehicle and trailer are connected, the trailer frame should be level, or
slightly angled down toward your vehicle, when viewed from the side.
When driving with a trailer or payload, a slight takeoff vibration or
shudder may be present due to the increased payload weight. You can
find more information about proper trailer loading and setting your
vehicle up for towing under
Load limit
in the
Load Carrying
chapter
and in the
RV & Trailer Towing Guide,
available at an authorized
dealer.

Snowplowing with your Air Bag Equipped Vehicle
WARNING:
Do not attempt to service, repair, or modify the air
bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) or its fuses. See your
Ford or Lincoln Mercury dealer.
WARNING:
Additional equipment such as snowplow equipment
may effect the performance of the air bag sensors increasing the
risk of injury. Please refer to the
Body Builders Layout Book
for
instructions about the appropriate installation of additional equipment.
WARNING:
All occupants of the vehicle, including the driver,
should always properly wear their safety belts, even when an air
bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) is provided.
Your vehicle is equipped with a driver and passenger air bag
supplemental restraint system. The supplemental restrain system is
designed to activate in certain frontal and offset frontal collisions when
the vehicle sustains sufficient longitudinal deceleration.
Careless or high speed driving while plowing snow which results in
sufficient vehicle decelerations can deploy the air bag. Such driving also
increases the risk of accidents.
Never remove or defeat the tripping mechanisms designed into the snow
removal equipment by its manufacturer. Doing so may cause damage to
the vehicle and the snow removal equipment as well as possible air bag
deployment.
Engine temperature while plowing
When driving with a plow, your engine may run at a higher temperature
than normal because the attached snowplow blade will restrict airflow to
the radiator.
If you are driving more than 15 miles (24 kilometers) at temperatures
above freezing, angle the plow blade either full left or full right to
provide maximum airflow to the radiator.
If you are driving less than 15 miles (24 kilometers) at speeds up to
45 mph (72 km/h) in cold weather, you will not need to worry about
blade position to provide maximum airflow.
