FORD F-150 2003 car safety problem was reported on Nov 09, 2003.FORD F-150 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION . my '03 f150 fx4 4x4 has what i suspect to be an ignition problem that the local dealership service department cannot duplicate or diagnose. i have had the truck since july 03 and it has been to the dealer twice. once without a "service engine soon" light and i was told they could not work the truck due to warranty issues without the light. then in november the light illuminated and i took the truck in for the light and the four wheel drive inoperable. the four wheel drive was fixed by replacing the front differential, right side axle housing, shifting fork and gears. but the ignition problem was just as illusive with the light and the code. now i still have the problem of the truck dying out as usual and my fuel economy is degrading. the truck will die out and recover causing the truck to buck severely, possibly causing the 4x4 problems mentioned earlier. it is at its worst at 1450 rpm or 59 mph. once 1500 rpms are exceeded the problem is gone. i can also accelerate through it without experiencing any problem. just steady-state operation without any load and it will die out repeatedly. *la.Mileage was 6 miles.

FORD F-150 2003 car safety problem was reported on June 05, 2003.FORD F-150 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . within a few thousand miles of purchase, we began noticing a sporadic grating noise from the rear end. more distubing is the hard shifting between 1st and 2nd gears that is also sporadic. the shifting problem happens on long trips of 150 miles or more. it will usually happen about once a day but of course we never know when. the grating noise is less frequent and can happen anytime. our vehicle is currently at the dealership for a fourth visit for these problems. ford has not been able to replicate the grating and hard shifting which makes sense but at the same time we are stuck with a vehicle that has not provided new truck performance. since the problem has become more frequent, it will probably lead to transmission failure once it is out of warranty. i have considered selling it but that would be unethical since the next person would eventually experience the same problems. ford needs to step up and replace the transmission. there is one other similar complaint in the data base. *la.Mileage was 2000 miles.

FORD F-150 2003 car safety problem was reported on Sept 15, 2003.FORD F-150 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SEAT BELTS . my complaint pertains to an accident that i was involved in on july 29, 2003. i had a frontal collision with another car in an intersection. the other car ran a red light, but the fact is, my right front corner of my bumper hit her left front side at her left front tire and did considerable amount of damage to both vehicles. i have a f150 4x4 supercrew, the other car was a olds' 98 regency full size car. my approximate speed was between 20 to 25 mph, i had just came from another intersection and had not reached the speed limit quite yet. after hitting this car my truck traveled another 20 to 30 yards before hitting a 2 pipe hand/guard rail. the corner post placed a nice v dead center in my bumper. the hood was buckled, both front quarter panels damaged and jammed back into the doors. my air bag did not deploy nor did my seat belts lock in position to prevent myself from hitting the steering wheel with my chest. the truck was repaired by a reliable collision center approved by my insurance company, state farm insurance. i had notified ford of the air bag and seat belt not working as i was lead to believe it should and was instructed to take my truck to the dealership where i purchased it and have the systems checked out. dealership test results showed systems all working properly. i contacted ford again and asked just what it takes to initiate these devices to work. the customer service person read to me what it would take for these to work. i told her that is exactly what i was telling her had happened in the wreck. at this point i have no confidence in my truck and worry that they will not work the next time if ever needed again or if they will even deploy for no reason while i'm driving down the road. i just don't know where to go with this to gain confidence in my truck. i just purchased this truck in april and will take a bad beating if i trade it off now (because it has been damaged in a crash) since i?ll never be able to trade it in or sell it..Vehicle was involved in a crash. 1 person(s) were injured.

FORD F-150 2003 car safety problem was reported on Jan 08, 2005.FORD F-150 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AXLE HUBS . 2003 ford f-150 4x4. after only a few hours in 4x4 mode, truck no longer engages into 4x4 mode, creating hazardous condition as people expect this to work and truck is very prone to getting stuck in road or leaving the road without this feature (as all such trucks are relatively very light in the rear). owners of 4x4 vehicles expect this feature to work as advertised and failure can create serious safety issues. from short investigation - speaking to ford mechanics and visiting ford-trucks.com, this is a very common problem. this is a serious safety issue for reasons given above - after personally getting stuck in a public road, and very nearly several times, the truck is no longer used whenever there is any chance of snowy conditions (i am in the north-east). i strongly believe this to be a design defect - the fork which engages the front axles has a plastic end which breaks or falls off after a short period of time. i request that this be investigated and if found to be a design related issue, which i believe it clearly is, that ford be required to fix these vehicles without cost to the owner and provide an extended warranty for this issue. also note that i have taken the truck to 2 ford dealers with the same diagnosis, both quoted 6-7 hours of labor when it clearly takes half or less of this time (again, please see the ford-trucks.com/forum). i believe ford is using this known issue to purposely over charging customers for a known design defect. thank you for your consideration of this safety issue. *ak.Mileage was 36001 miles.

FORD F-150 2003 car safety problem was reported on Feb 21, 2005.FORD F-150 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:MANUAL TRANSMISSION . i have a 2003 ford f150 pickup, v6, 5-speed manual transmission. my warranty expired at 36,000 miles and my clutch slave cylinder failed at 37,000 miles. after contacting the dealership and telling them about the problem and asking them if they would cover the part since it had failed prematurely, and they answered "no". i took it to a private shop and had the slave cylinder replaced. the day after i got it back i periodically heard strange noises coming from the transmission. i took it back into the shop that replaced my slave cylinder. upon observation they found nothing. after driving it for two more days the problem was extremely evident by the noises that were constant whenever i shifted as well as in neutral. i took it to a reputable transmission shop and told the shop that i wanted to be there when the transmission was opened up. i was present when they opened up the transmission. as they pulled the transmission apart, they found mangled thin metal debris, some pieces as large as my thumbnail. after taking the entire transmission apart and inspecting all bearings and all other parts, they found that the pieces were a foreign material to the transmission. they did not come from any part of the transmission. one of these pieces found its way between the gears on the counter shaft and broke one of the teeth, explaining the noise. so, in short, we are currently having the transmission rebuilt at a cost of $1800.00 on a vehicle with only 37,000 miles on it. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 37700 miles.

FORD F-150 2003 car safety problem was reported on Apr 15, 2008.FORD F-150 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . in april 2008 the battery was dead on the truck. battery was replaced and truck still would not start. after we were finally able to get the truck started it was taken to the local dealer where it remained for 2-3 weeks. service department determined that the cluster ($700.00) was bad and replaced it. (we have since been told by other mechanics, if the cluster was bad we would not have been able to start the truck, so why was it replaced.) the truck was brought back home and the next time it rained the battery was again dead. again truck was taken to the dealer service department. this time they determined that it was leaking around the window gasket ($100) and replaced this. 2 months later another rain and again a dead vehicle. truck was again taken to the dealer where it remained another 2 weeks. after several phone calls and complaints it was determined that they did not know what was wrong with the vehicle and needed to call the main technicians. we still have no idea what is wrong with the vehicle and keep it in the garage. truck can't be driven if there is any hint of rain because we don't want to end up stranded. we live in a small community and this is the second truck, same model and year, that we know of in our area that is having this same problem. obviously there is some issue with the electrical systems in these vehicles as it does not appear to be limited to a few. this truck only has 37, 000 miles on it and is a complete waste to have unless we lived in the desert. i think all ford owners need to ban together and sue ford for aggravation and non functional vehicles. never again will i waste my time buying a ford vehicle. *tr.Mileage was 36000 miles.

FORD F-150 2003 car safety problem was reported on Nov 14, 2004.FORD F-150 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . my 2003 ford f150 truck has a recurring problem in that it continuously blows a certain 5 amp fuse. i was told by a technician at the ford authorized service where i have my service work done that he has seen about 10 of these cases. the problem is a cowl leak that allows water on an electronic module located under the dash. the fuse will blow predictably 2 to 3 days after a rain or wash. the safety consequences are: 1. the blown fuse disables the feature that automatically turns on the headlights & taillights thereby becoming an accident risk particularly when the driver has become accustomed to the automatic control of the lights; 2. the blown fuse disables the feature that automatically locks all of the vehicles doors when the transmission is shifted into drive thereby exposing the occupants to carjacking and other personal dangers; 3. the blown fuse disables the pushbutton control for shifting the transmission into and out of overdrive which could pose a hazard in snow and ice conditions or driving in mountainous terrain. based on these indisputable safety hazards the manufacturer should be required to recall all vehicles subject to this condition and repair/replace as necessary to eliminate the possibility of these hazards. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 15000 miles.

FORD F-150 2003 car safety problem was reported on Mar 10, 2011.FORD F-150 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . on my 2003 ford f-150 xlt regular cab, short wide bed pick-up i noticed a few months ago that the abs brake light came on and stayed for a short period then went off again. this happened a few times. sometimes when i would shut off the engine the abs brake light would go out and not reappear again for a few days to weeks. approximately 2 weeks ago the abs brake light on the dash came on again and this time it stayed on. this time i also noted that after i turned the ignition switch off i could still hear what appeared to be the sound of small electric motor continuously running under the hood. i opened the hood and determined the noise was originating from the abs brake control module. i felt the module and it was warm. i phoned the local ford dealer and was told that sometimes if the battery is disconnected the module will reset itself. i disconnected the battery for a moment then reconnected it and the abs brake module light on the dash went off so i assumed it had reset itself and was now ok. i continued to drive the truck for approx 1 1/2 weeks with no trouble then suddenly the abs light on the dash again came on. as before when i shut off the engine the noise under the hood of a small electric motor running was again heard. the abs control module was hot to the touch and a hot smell was noted also. i visited the local ford dealer and the service manager stated the abs control module needed replaced at a price of somewhere around $700.00 up to possibly $1200.00 since when the abs control module goes bad then the hydraulic portion of this system is likely also bad. the truck only has 68500 miles, looks like new, and has been treated extremely gently since i purchased it new in 2003. *tr.Mileage was 68500 miles.

FORD F-150 2003 car safety problem was reported on Aug 02, 2010.FORD F-150 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . i bought a 2003 ford f150 with a 4.6l triton v8 engine , while driving it started making a popping noise, like a mini backfire. i took it to an auto repair shop, and they found the coil pack on the #3 cylinder was melted. they replaced the coil pack, and we drove down the road to test drive the truck, within 2 miles the popping noise returned, but even louder this time. we got it limped back to the shop, and had to let it cool down overnight, so the mechanic could investigate the problem. he had a time getting the melted "brand new" coil pack out of the spark plug recess in the engine head, and an equally difficult time getting the spark plug itself out of the hole. apparently the plug had come loose in the short threaded aluminum head, then the coil pack melted around the plug sealing it in place , and the engine burnt a hole the size of a pencil right through the aluminum head next to the spark plug hole. the coil pack was still putting out spark, but not to the plug, as the boot that held it on the plug was gone, it was just sparking against the sides of the recess in the head. the mechanic said it was lucky not to have either caught fire or blown up, i guess that is lucky, but at the same time not so nice for me with the repairs starting at $2600 to replace the heads on the same engine, or put in a used engine if we can find one for $3900, or put in a remanufactured engine for $5200, that has supposedly has addressed the issue with these ford engines blowing out spark plugs. ford says there isn't an issue, but they've created a fix for the problem that doesn't exist?? what to do now with my worthless pile of metal sitting in my driveway , i can't afford to fix? built ford tough ?? after doing some research on the internet, simply google "ford triton spark plug blowout" , and you'll find there are thousands and thousands of folks like me dealing with this issue , and ford continues to deny it's a problem, why? *tr.Mileage was 190276 miles.

FORD F-150 2003 car safety problem was reported on Oct 20, 2011.FORD F-150 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE . my 2003 ford f-150 was subject to recall to replace the gas tank mounting straps which are known to corrode and fail. the fuel tank on the truck had significant rust under one of the straps, resulting in a leak in the area under the strap. when i brought the truck in for the recall work i notified the service department that the tank was leaking under the strap. i was told as long as the tank was leaking as a result of the strap failure and not leaking at a seam or elsewhere on the tank, ford would replace the tank. i was later notified that ford denied the tank replacement due to the fact that it was already leaking. i was told that if the result occurred as a result of the repair then ford would replace the tank at no cost to me but since it was already leaking, they wouldn't take responsibility for the tank repair, only the replacement of the straps. as a result, i replaced the tank at my own expense. the fuel tank that was removed from this truck was in very good condition with the exception of the rust under the fuel tank strap. there was no leakage at any of the seams or anywhere else on the tank. the failure of the tank, in my opinion, is a direct result of the corrosion of the straps. ford has acknowledged this as a problem but will only repair tanks (at their expense) that begin leaking during the course of the repair. i feel that this is a severe safety issue that ford is aware of and therefore the current recall for fuel tank straps should immediately be expanded to include the inspection of tanks and the free replacement of any tank showing corrosion in the vicinity of the failed straps. *tr.Mileage was 130000 miles.
