I have the same problem. Radio does not shut off, interior light does not come on when door opens, electric seat memory will not work. When going into the data computer when I attempt to set auto door locks, or headlight delay timer it reads "data error" or some thing similar.
I see there is talk here about a 3 pin connector in a wiring harness some where
between the front and rear seats. Anyone have a more detailed description? How do I access this harness? Under lower chassis door trim? Do I have to remove any seats? Is this under the carpet? Any help appreciated.
I have the exact same problem. I see water has got into the rear sill area of my 04 Supercrew lariat. I don't see any corroded wires...i must not be looking hard enough. Any tips would be helpful. A picture of the affected wire would be awesome!!
Ok, I've been through everything with a fine tooth comb and this is very frustrating.
I have a 2004 f-150 supercrew lariat. Issues are as follows;
When the engine is running, when any door is opened the door ajar light and dome lamps do not illuminate.
When the key is turned off, but left in the ignition. The dome lamps illuminate for about 30 sec and then turn off. Opening any door will not turn them back on. The radio stays on...opening a door does not turn it off. No door chime if door is opened.
When key is removed from ignition and doors have been opened. Windows, sunroof, radio are all still operational. Dome lamps still do not turn on. No chime if headlights left on. Battery saver kicks in after 20min or so and shuts the radio, windows, etc off. Once the battery saver kicks in....radio, windows, etc are not powered until the key is turned to the 'on' position...(Which is great..cause for that moment, it works like it should)
Dash display indicates "Auto locks - Data Error" and "Autolamp Delay - Data Error"
Note: Everything else works on the truck, Power mirrors, locks, pedals, seats, third, brake light, heated seats, A/C...have not tried seat memory or keypad entry though.
I have gone through the wiring in the driverside sill wells both front and back...everything looks good, I see no corrosion to any wires or connectors in the sill. I have swaped the accessory delay relay with the headlight relay, nothing. I have sprayed door locks with cans of WD-40. I have prayed to god. Nothing.
Its like the truck dosn't realize that any of the doors have been opened. What are the chances that its the ECM or the BCM? Any thoughts?
Well I have the exact same problem .... radio data error etc etc, had it into 2 shops, the first one said it was door switches which put things on an open circut....they changed 2 door switches...no fix!!! then the next garage said it was my VSM, they are tracking a new one down, they said that it was a part that was unavailable???? they dont make replacements???? he looked about as stumped as me. They are finding a replacement and will change it...he said the thing is fried!!! I also have a remote start/alarm but it was dealer intstalled ford aftermarket. I will post if the vsm change fixes the issue.
I finally fixed the problem today. I found the bad splice in the wire, fixed it and now my radio shuts off when I open the door...and I don't have the data error anymore. Oh ya, and my power seats memory function works again.
FYI: The wire is Violet and is located on the driver's side wire bundler, right before the bundle goes into the rear pillar area. I took a picture if anyone is interested...
i Fixed the problem as well theres a violet wire and a purple wire thaqt spice into a violet wire near the back of the rear sill plate on the drivers side its just taped up with the hockey type tape????? wich is why theres a problem all the water soaks up and sits there but ya so loads of corrosion cleaned it up works like a charm!!!![/IMG]file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Josh/My%20Documents/Josh's%20camera%20pics/100_00834.JPG[/IMG]
