I have 1 week with my first F150 2005 stx 4x4 and after 5 days of driving him, I started experiencing the same issues (4x4 trying to engage while driving)... I just ordered the solenoid from tasca (almost 80dlls less than the dealer here in Tijuana Mex) and I was wondering if I can disconnect the solenoid from now until I get the new one or maybe disconnect something else. This is my daily driver and I don't want to experience this issue and suddenly brake something on the truck...
how you guys did before you get the replacement if you were experiencing the issues? Should I definitely not drive the truck until I change the part?
Since it started, it's happening almost 1-2 times a day and I only drive about 20miles per day. As soon as I hear the noise, I pull over and switch to Neutral to engage 4hi and then return to 2hi and continue driving but I'm not sure if I can drive it for the next couple of days until I get the new part.
Any information would be appreciated, I have always wanted a pick up cause I love to off road but I don't want a bad experience on my first truck...
Thanks in advance,
You can disconnect the solenoid electrical connection and it won't hurt a thing but a few MPGs. For more information on diagnosing the system, look here: http://www.f150forum.com/f72/how-dia...m-esof-186872/
