So just went outside to clear six or more inches of heavy snow off truck in my driveway where it’s been sitting all day. Opened driver’s door and it would not stay closed.

well. A big thank Summers22 you. I got a can of spray lube, much better than wd40, sprayed the latch and it immediately worked. I then drove up my steep 150’ long driveway in 4H to cut a path and truck went up like a hot knife through butter.

Im now not concerned about tomorrow morning as freezing rain falls.

You sir are welcome! More people need to know about this, since even FOMOCO hasn't figured it out!

Boeshield T-9 might work for the latches, it doesn't collect dirt and works on about everything. I've had to use it for the Platinum self lowering side steps.

Now, if they'd just do something about the failing door lock actuators that are never in stock.

Can somebody/Admin update the original post?

I'm set to go in on 12/26 and wanting to make sure I have everything covered. I know of the trans tsb, and there's an oil consumption/valve cover TSB for certain gen2 3.5 ecoboosts….I'm sure there are more that I'm missing!

Wow, this was news early this morning and no one posted it. Trucks with the block heater have a new recall.

Hmmm, am wondering if aluminum or inferior connectors are being used in the wiring harness with the costs of Copper, gradually building resistance in 12 volt systems due to bad connections cause fires in the harnesses. U would think the fuse would blow but that is not always the case if the resistance gradually increases, heat gradually builds up. Obviously a new type fuse needs to be developed to deal with this. Is obvious also that Ford in the recalls are concerned about dielectric grease not being present at connection.

A bit over 800,000 trucks to possibly have the block heater recall / inspection. This is for the 15-17 model year 150s. Did something change for the 18s?
