Yes, put it in neutral.

Because your vehicle’s engine is also electronically controlled by a
computer, some control conditions are maintained by power from the
battery. When the battery is disconnected or a new battery is installed,
the engine must relearn its idle and fuel trim strategy for optimum
driveability and performance. To begin this process:
1. With the vehicle at a complete stop, set the parking brake.
2. Put the gearshift in P (Park) (automatic transmission) or the neutral
position (manual transmission), turn off all accessories and start the
engine.

Think it would work on a Superduty?

Can this also make the a/c clutch not engage. I had ice cold a/c, changed by battery now the ac clutch will not engage.

thanks

Maybe it is your body module programming ?

Don't mean to sound like I dont know what you are talking about, but I dont know what youre talking about. Any suggestions on what I would do to correct the issue.

I am new to Ford, purchased this vehicle used as a tow vehicle. Live in Florida it is still pretty hot here without a/c.

thanks

Just did the process and it worked great. Truck seemed fine before but I wasn't happy with the fuel mileage (15.5mpg) and now I am getting anywhere from 18 to 21 on the same drive. CRAZY
