I have a 2000 F-150 that when I start the engine it reset the radio clock to 1200. Does't happen all the time just when it has been sitting a long time, like overnight.

I have a 2000 ford f150 with 4.6 v8.I haven driven around all day making multiple stops ( turning off the engine) then restarting, one time I make a stop, then it won't start, but turns over, had it towed on a flatbed to my mechanic, when they took it off the truck it started, this has happened 3 times.Now it sits in my driveway and won't start again. My mechanic is not sure if it's the fuel pump which is a $1,000 job or the anti-theft module, which he say's is not cheap either, I don't know what to do.
Any Help.
I have a 2001 Ford F150 v6 super cab. Here lately mine has been doing the same thing. It turns over but won't start. Got the battery, alternator, and starter checked and they were fine. Then it drove great for like a week or so. Then yesterday it wouldn't start when I tried to leave work. I kept trying off and on for like 15-20 minutes then it cranked up. Weird. Did you ever find out if yours was the fuel pump? I am frustrated.

I had a problem that sounds like what you have.they replaced the fuel pump ,the problem came was in at least a dozen time,turns out there was a bad chip in computer and was giving wrong codes every time it was in for repair.

It sounds like just about everyone is having the same problems as me...

I have a 2001 F-150 5.4 V8 I bought it a little over a year ago and have had 3 issues with it not starting!

The first time the truck didnt do anything! Silence! We called a tow and then we tried hitting the FUEL RESET BUTTON and the truck started right up!

Second time: truck was running fine all day then i was waiting in the truck while in drive, foot just on the brakes, and the truck shook, the shut off and wouldnt start up again! Got a tow as soon as we got it of the truck tried it and it started right up!

Third time: I had not driven it in a few days decided to take it to the stores and on our second stop it wouldnt start again of coarse not until the tow truck guy got there in which he turned the key back and forth a few times and he said it started.

Since then i got the stuck to start but then i had not driven it in maybe 2 weeks went to start it and it did nothing but the interior lights flashed 5 times! Replaced the battery and it would try to start but not turn over to actually get the truck running...

Which of the many options you've posted do you thing i should try first? Or do you think it might be something different?

Any advice i can get will definitely help! I just want my truck back =(

2000--f150--4.6---no start--new fuel pump--filter-
crank sensor--will start briefly with starting fluid----seems like no signal to injectors. I am on an island---with limited tools---need some help.
what signals the injectors?--computer?

Could be the Crankshaft Sensor for the 2000 f150 or fuel pump over heating.

Hi everybody, i have a 2004 f150 crew cab that just started to give me that unreliable feeling. it runs great when its running, but lately it seems to not want to start from time to time! I turn the ignition key and all typical gauges light up w/noises, BUT-truck doesnt turn over. I have noticed that the odometer will read "check gauges" and i do notice the little wrench light on my left side of dash gauges. I have tried putting it in nuetral and cleaned battery conections but nothing has resolved the prob. When i am tempted to tow to mechanic, it suddenly starts as if nothing ever happened?!?!?! I have read prior posts but it doesnt seem like there is a common resolve? Help if you can-thanku!!!!

I have an 06 f150 if it sits lik over night and after work ill go and start it and it acts like its not going to start or get fuel to it at all. Fuel throttle and fuel pump has been changed just a day ago. Tonight it died on me for the thrid time. Ford won't do anything becaused it won't throw a code. I haven't had my fuel filter chang that I know of since I've bought it. Could this be the problem? Please let me know

It appears Ford has a reputation of not starting. I am having a similar problem and after reading everyone post I may look into a new solenoid. My problem is this. This just started happening to my 200 F-150 5.4 liter. After I shut my engine off and go to restart it, it wont start. The battery is less than a year old. I have power to everything in the truck except the radio. Two times I got it to start after pressing the volume knob quite a few times. One time I got it to start after banging on the dash board above the radio. Does anyone have any ideas?
Did you ever figure out what was wrong with your truck and how to fix it? I have a 2001 F-150 5.4 liter that is exhibiting the same behavior. Seems to me to be a heat issue. When the truck gets hot either though driving or sitting in the hot sun it will not crank but let it cool off an it starts up just fine.
