I have an '01F150 5.4 Supercrew Lariat w/123K miles. Runs very well until yesterday. As I was driving, the radio started turning off and on then the ABS light popped up(the first time any light has ever come on)then the turn signals wouldn't work so I turned the headlights off then they did work.The truck bucked once then kept moving. This all happened within 3 minutes. I made it home, turned it off(knew it wouldn't turn on again)and it didn't. I turn the key and all the lights come on and almost turns over but it won't. Battery is fine. Maybe Alt., maybe starter solenoid. Need help I have no more vehicles left.

You have a much more severe problem than an alternator or solenoid, even if faulty would not produce the problems you are encountering. Five will get you fifty it's with the ECM or PCM, definitely electronic.

I was afraid of that. Thanks though.
