WARNING
DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE UNTIL
YOU VERIFY THAT THE BRAKELAMPS
ARE WORKING.
R (Reverse)
With the gearshift in the R (Reverse) position,
the vehicle will move backward. You should
always come to a complete stop before shifting
into or out of R (Reverse).
211
Trailer lamps
Make sure your trailer lamps conform to Federal
and local regulations.
Your vehicle has been equipped for use with a
4-wire trailer tow electrical system (running
lamps, right hand stop/turn, left hand
stop/turn, and ground).
Class I and Class II Trailer Tow electrical wiring
provides two circuits (right hand and left hand)
to operate trailer stop/turn tail lamps. Each
stop/turn circuit will operate one combination
stop/turn light bulb (# 1157, 3157, 2357, or 3357)
on the trailer. Never add more than one trailer
light bulb to one circuit.
A wire harness (Ford part number
F5TB-13A576-A) has been provided that connects
to the frame wire harness at the rear of the
vehicle and is compatible with most 4-wire
trailer tow electrical systems.
Always check trailer and vehicle functions (i.e.,
stop/turn signal, and running lights) before
operating your vehicle and trailer.
If your vehicle fails to function properly, do not
operate your vehicle and trailer until corrections
are made.
R
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.
225
Fuses, Fuse Links and Circuit
Breakers
Fuses, circuit breakers and fuse links protect
your vehicle’s electrical system from overloading.
If electrical parts in your vehicle are not
working, the system may have been overloaded
and blown a fuse or tripped a circuit breaker.
Before you replace or repair any electrical parts,
check the appropriate fuses or circuit breakers.
The following charts tell you which fuses or
circuit breakers protect each electrical part of
your vehicle. If a fuse blows or a circuit breaker
opens a circuit, all the parts of your vehicle that
use that circuit will not work.
Once you have determined which fuses or circuit
breakers to check, follow the procedures under
Checking and replacing fuses
or
Checking and
replacing circuit breakers
later in this chapter.
226
Fuses and their location
230
Power Distribution Box
The high current fuses contained in the Power
Distribution Box protect your vehicle’s main
electrical systems from overloads; these fuses
provide the connection between the battery and
your vehicle’s electrical systems.
The high current fuses are coded as follows: 30
amp — light green, 40 amp — orange, 50 amp
— red, 60 amp — blue.
R
WARNING
Always disconnect the battery before
servicing high current fuses.
Ford recommends that high current fuses be
replaced by a qualified technician.
R
WARNING
Always replace the cover to the Power
Distribution Box before reconnecting the
battery or refilling fluid reservoirs.
A blown high current fuse may be replaced but
will continue to blow until the cause of the
overload condition is corrected.
R
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.
234
Checking and Replacing Fuses
If you need to check a fuse, follow these steps:
1.
In order to find the fuse panel, you must
first remove the cover from the lower edge
of the instrument panel. You can do this by
pulling on handle to disengage the fasteners.
Fuse panel cover
2.
On the fuse panel cover, find the number of
the fuse you want to check. The diagram on
the cover tells you where to locate the fuse
on the panel.
The underside of the cover also contains a
fuse pulling tool in case you need to replace
a blown fuse.
3.
Check the fuse to see if it is blown. Look
through the clear side of the fuse to see if
the metal wire inside is separated. If it is,
the fuse is blown and should be replaced.
235
The side view of a fuse
4.
Replace the fuse with one that has the right
amperage rating (see previous chart).
R
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.
5.
Put the fuse panel cover back on.
Even after you replace a fuse, it may continue to
blow if you do not find what caused the
overload. If the fuse continues to blow, have
your electrical system checked.
Circuit Breakers
If you need to check a circuit breaker on the
fuse panel, see
Checking and replacing fuses
to
find out how to locate the fuse panel. Otherwise,
locate the circuit breaker according to the
instructions on the charts given earlier in this
chapter.
Since you need diagnostic equipment to check
whether a circuit breaker works and such
equipment comes with instructions, we do not
discuss how to check circuit breakers.
236
However, you should know that the circuit
breakers will reset themselves and allow the
electrical parts to work again once the overload
on the circuit is removed. If the circuit breakers
continue to cut off electricity, have your vehicle’s
electrical system checked.
If you replace a circuit breaker, use one with the
same amperage rating. To remove a circuit
breaker mounted in the fuse panel, grip it with
your finger and thumb and pull it straight out
of its socket.
Changing a Tire
If you get a flat tire while you are driving, do
not apply the brake heavily. Instead, gradually
decrease the speed. Hold the steering wheel
firmly and slowly move to a safe place on the
side of the road. Park on a level spot, turn off
the ignition, set the parking brake, and turn on
the hazard flashers.
The Conventional Spare Tire
If you have the conventional spare tire, you can
use it as a spare or as a regular tire. This spare
tire is identical to the other tires that come with
your vehicle, although the wheel may not match.
R
WARNING
To avoid injury, never run the engine
with one wheel off the ground, such as
when changing a tire.
Extended use of other than matching size spare
tires on a Traction-Lok axle could result in a
permanent reduction in effectiveness. This loss of
effectiveness does not affect normal driving and
should not be noticeable to the driver.
