It’s cold in Michigan! About a week ago my seat heaters stopped working in my 2013 F-150. I have the My Ford Touch (MFT) with heated and cooled seats.
- Both seats stopped working.
- The MFT light comes on saying the seat heaters are running
- I can hear the blower kick on under the seat
- No Heat
I reseated the wiring harness under the drivers side seat. Swapped a few fuses around under the hood (the seat heater/cooler is a 30 amp cartridge fuse per the manual)
Nothing. Still the same symptoms.
I finally disconnected the negative of the battery and let it sit for about a half hour. Reconnected and now the issue is resolved. Maybe something with the body control module? Maybe Ford will release a software update.
I have about 12k on my 2013 F-150 that I’ve had for about a year. Most recently I noticed a squeak that seemed like it was coming from the rear. It was noticeable at really low speeds, it wasn’t loud or clunky… only a squeak
I thought for sure it was the suspension because when I jumped on the back of the truck it I could get it to make noise.
It was actually the tailgate pivot points and latch. I sprayed some white grease on the pivot points and the latch on both sides. The squeak went away.
So my F-150 FX4 was already in the shop… a few times for its electronic (assisted) power steering.
When I held the wheel straight the truck pulled me into the left lane(or on coming traffic.) It seemed to drive straight, but the wheel was annoying. I took it to the dealership, they said they fixed it, but couldn’t tell me what they did to it. I drove it a few miles and went right back to the dealership(that I bought it from). The service advisor wanted to drive it. We went for a test drive. He told me that they could check the alignment but, the way it was driving normal. At this point- I was pretty frustrated. I have 1500 miles on this truck and the wheel not being straight is just not normal.
They checked the alignment- said everything was fine. I left the dealership after expressing my disbelief(not so kindly at this point.)
I found this post http://www.f150forum.com/f2/epas-terrible-experience-226689/
Finally! Someone with the same issue, I’m not just making things up. I replied to that thread and a Ford customer service manager called me. Told me(I’m paraphrasing) that he is confident in the dealership I went to(Brighton Ford) that they diagnosed the truck properly and feels there is most likely no issue. But if I wanted to, take it to another dealership and have it checked out.
So during lunch one day I took it over to Bill Brown Ford near my work and told them “when I hold the wheel straight it pulls to the left” By 3pm I had a call saying the truck was fixed.
They adjusted the “clear vision” which has something to do with the toe if I understand correctly. My truck finally feels normal- straight wheel, no issues. I’m annoyed that I had to take it to a different dealership, but glad it’s fixed.
