Ford F-450 - 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
crash.

2.
Child age 12 or under:
A child age 12 or under must ride in the
front seat because:
my vehicle has no rear seat;
although children age 12 and under ride in the rear seat whenever
possible, children age 12 and under have no option but to sometimes
ride in the front seat because rear seat space is insufficient; or
the child has a medical condition that, according to the child’s
physician, makes it necessary for the child to ride in the front seat so
that the driver can monitor the child’s condition.
3.
Medical condition:
A passenger has a medical condition that,
according to his or her physician:
poses a special risk for the passenger if the airbag deploys; and
makes the potential harm from the passenger airbag deployment
greater than the potential harm from turning OFF the airbag and
experiencing a crash without the protection offered by the airbag
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.
Contact your authorized dealer as soon as possible.

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.
The system consists of the
following:
Safety canopy curtain airbags
fitted above the trim panels over
the front and rear side windows
identified by wording on the
B-pillar trim.

Brake-shift interlock
WARNING:
Do not drive your vehicle until you verify that the
brake lamps are working.
WARNING:
When doing this procedure, you will be taking the
vehicle out of park which means the vehicle can roll freely. To
avoid unwanted vehicle movement, always fully set the parking brake
prior to doing this procedure. Use wheel chocks if appropriate.
WARNING:
If the parking brake is fully released, but the brake
warning lamp remains illuminated, the brakes may not be
working properly. See your authorized dealer as soon as possible.
This vehicle is equipped with a brake-shift interlock feature that prevents
the gearshift lever from being moved from P (Park) when the ignition is
in the 3 (on) position and the brake pedal is not pressed.
If you cannot move the gearshift lever out of P (Park) with ignition in
the on position and the brake pedal pressed, it is possible that a fuse has
blown or the vehicle’s brake lamps are not operating properly. Refer to
the
Fuses
chapter.
If the fuse is not blown and the brake lamps are working properly, the
following procedure will allow you to move the gearshift lever from P
(Park):
1. Apply the parking brake. Turn the ignition key to 1 (off), then remove
the key.
2. Move the steering column to the full down and full rearward position
(toward the driver’s seat).
3. Remove the gearshift lever boot.
4. Place fingers into hole where the gearshift lever boot was removed
from and pull top half of shroud up and forward to separate it from the
lower half of the shroud. There is a hinge at the forward edge of the top
shroud. Roll the top half of the shroud upward on the hinge point to
clear the hazard flasher button, then pull straight rearward toward the
driver’s seat to remove.
5. Remove the top half of the shroud.

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.
TRAILER SWAY CONTROL (IF EQUIPPED)
Note:
This feature does not prevent trailer sway, but reduces it once it
begins.
Note:
This feature cannot stop all trailers from swaying.
Note:
In some cases, if vehicle speed is too high, the system may
activate multiple times, gradually reducing vehicle speed.

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.

CHANGING A FUSE
Fuses
WARNING:
Always replace a fuse with one that has the
specified amperage rating. Using a fuse with a higher amperage
rating can cause severe wire damage and could start a fire.
If electrical components in the vehicle
are not working, a fuse may have
blown. Blown fuses are identified by a
broken wire within the fuse. Check
the appropriate fuses before replacing
any electrical components.

UPFITTER CONTROLS (IF EQUIPPED)
The upfitter option package
provides four switches, mounted in
the center of the instrument panel.
These switches will only operate
while the ignition is in the on
position, whether the engine is
running or not. However, it is
recommended that the engine
remain running to maintain battery charge when using the upfitter
switches for extended duration or higher current draws. (This is even
more important for vehicles with diesel engines since the glow plugs are
also draining battery power when the ignition key is in the on position.)
When switched on, they provide 8 amps, 12 amps or 20 amps of
electrical battery power for a variety of personal or commercial uses.
There will also be a relay box located on the driver side end of the
instrument panel. See your authorized dealer for service.

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.

Medical condition:
A passenger has a medical condition that,
according to his or her physician:
poses a special risk for the passenger if the airbag deploys; and
makes the potential harm from the passenger airbag deployment
greater than the potential harm from turning OFF the airbag and
experiencing a crash without the protection offered by the airbag
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.

(fus)
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.
The system consists of the
following:
a label or embossed side panel
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.
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® 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 crash.
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, as you could be seriously injured
or killed. Contact your authorized dealer as soon as possible.

Brake-shift interlock
WARNING:
Do not drive your vehicle until you verify that the
brake lamps are working.
WARNING:
When doing this procedure, you will be taking the
vehicle out of park which means the vehicle can roll freely.
To avoid unwanted vehicle movement, always fully set the parking
brake prior to doing this procedure. Use wheel chocks if appropriate.
WARNING:
If the parking brake is fully released, but the brake
warning lamp remains illuminated, the brakes may not be
working properly. See your authorized dealer as soon as possible.
This vehicle is equipped with a brake-shift interlock feature that prevents
the gearshift lever from being moved from P (Park) when the ignition is
in the 3 (on) position and the brake pedal is not pressed.
If you cannot move the gearshift lever out of P (Park) with ignition in
the on position and the brake pedal pressed, it is possible that a fuse has
blown or the vehicle’s brake lamps are not operating properly. Refer to
the
Fuses
chapter.
If the fuse is not blown and the brake lamps are working properly, the
following procedure will allow you to move the gearshift lever from
P (Park):
1. Apply the parking brake. Turn the ignition key to 1 (off), then remove
the key.
2. Move the steering column to the full down and full rearward position
(toward the driver’s seat).
3. Remove the gearshift lever boot.
4. Place fingers into hole where the gearshift lever boot was removed
from and pull top half of shroud up and forward to separate it from the
lower half of the shroud. There is a hinge at the forward edge of the top
shroud. Roll the top half of the shroud upward on the hinge point to
clear the hazard flasher button, then pull straight rearward toward the
driver’s seat to remove.
5. Remove the top half of the shroud.

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.

UPFITTER CONTROLS (IF EQUIPPED)
The upfitter option package
provides four switches, mounted in
the center of the instrument panel.
These switches will only operate
while the ignition is in the on
position, whether the engine is
running or not. However, it is
recommended that the engine
remain running to maintain battery charge when using the upfitter
switches for extended duration or higher current draws. (This is even
more important for vehicles with diesel engines since the glow plugs are
also draining battery power when the ignition key is in the on position.)
When switched on, they provide 8 amps, 12 amps or 20 amps of
electrical battery power for a variety of personal or commercial uses.
There will also be a relay box located on the driver side end of the
instrument panel. See your authorized dealer for service.
The relays are coded as shown.
