My truck is gone

What a night! Driving back from supper last night......pulling up to a stop light and the truck shuts off. Middle of a snowstorm, wife and kid in the truck, and it absolutely refuses to start. Manage to get the truck off to the side of the road, but after hours of freezing my a$$ off, still nothing. Finally have to break down and call a tow truck. :no:

You know how hard it is to watch a 3 month old truck get towed away?:cry2: Was I ever pissed.

Truck is in the shop right now, should hear back shortly. I'm just praying that the Edge tuner had nothing to do with this, else I'm screwed.

Will keep you posted.

Dealer is now saying that it was caused by the aftermarket starter/alarm that I installed, but I know this isn't possible. They are just trying to find something to blame it on. 6 hours in the shop and they still don't know what it is. Will update soon.

8 hours later they finally diagnose the problem to a wiring harness, and not anything aftermarket. Apparently they have had this problem with several 07 F150s already this year.

The good news is that it's covered under warranty. The bad news is that I won't get my truck until tomorrow, and even then it's still only a temporary fix. Have to bring it back again when the new harness gets in.:ang:

wiring problems are always a pain the arse. I've had to figure out many of them since I've done my motor swap. Good thing it's covered under your warranty!
