Asked by BigZimm Nov 13, 2016 at 07:31 PM about the 2014 Ford F-150 XLT SuperCrew 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2014 f150 will crank but won't start. The steering
wheel is impossible to turn and brake pedal doesn't want
to press down. Truly at a loss as to what the issue may
be. Any help would be appreciated. Also, the power
seems to be working fine with all electrical inside cab.

Isn't your truck under warranty? I would take it straight to your Ford Dealer and let them fix it.

Without the engine running you won't have any power assist for the steering or the brakes. And on these trucks the assist helps ALOT. If under warrenty send it to the dealer. If not have your codes pulled and we can go from there.

After getting it to the dealer, they said that it was the fuel pump driver module. The part #aa8z9d370d. They charged me $34.37 and then $165 for labor. Said that particular part isn't covered under the warranty. Blows my mind that a piece that is required for fuel pump to work is not covered under the warranty and yet the fuel pump is.

Ha!! my 2014 F150 was doing the same thing. Some times it would start and some times all it would do is crank over. I just checked #27 fuse under the hood and sure enough, it had been getting hot and melting plastic over the connection on one side of the fuse. Guess that explains why sometimes it would start and sometimes it wouldnt. Thank you Ford Technician or should i say whistle Blower. Ford would have to know the issue by now. Sad that so many people have had to pay dealers so much money to fix something that wasnt even broke to begin with. Helping Ford pay back some of those Government loans.

Just had the same thing happen with mine - fuse was pretty toasted and melted on one side. Replacing the fuse fixed it for me. I’m concerned about what is causing this fuse to do this though? Is the fuel pump going bad? Those of you who replaced the fuse, have you had any more problems with it?

I gotta follow this because it's the exact same this happening to my 2011 F150. I replaced the fuel component module and it's still doing the same thing.

I just had the exact same symptons and checked fuse #27 and sure enough-burnt. Have any of you had issues later other than it soing the same thing again? I am concerned the fuse box may need to be replaced at some point as a result.

The internet it a wonderful place. 2013 F150 with 80K. Parked it last night and it turned over this morning, but you could tell it wasn't getting either gas or spark. Google led me to this page and $5.00 later the truck starts and I have spare fuses now. Thank you Bill Gates. :)

I've done a bit more reading on this and Ford recognizes this as a TSB and not a recall. If you can do the work yourself, the overall fix seems to be to reroute the wires to a larger 20A fuse to dissipate the heat. Here is the link to the TSB. https://ford.oemdtc.com/TSB/15-0137.pdf

Thanks Nukeagge. Fuse 27 was the issue, It was 1/2 burnt and broke when taking it out. The Ford Service Adviser never heard of the Fuse 27, haha. He suggests either the upper or lower fuel pumps or relays I think he said. When I mentioned the Driver Fuel Pump Module #aa8z9d370d, he does a hmmm... maybe try that. I will educate the Ford service dept. Monday. Thank you again

Thanks guys for this thread, saved my butt today. I live in MN and I stopped in my way home to get a couple pizzas at teals in isle, came back out to the lot and the f150 stx 2013 wouldn’t go, Same problem as all you have had. It’s Amazing that the fuse didn’t blow. It just sits there and arcs to a melt. Not a common problem? Huh ! Not worth a recall? Hmmmmmm There’s obviously a bigger problem and big money to fix it I bet. Ford can’t say they do not know of this issue if I can find it on google in 10 minutes of searching. Anyhow. Thanks so much to all of you. You got me home to my family tonight. Thanks. And an FYI, I had a close by friend pick me up a assortment of mini fuses from the bait shop that was still open They didn’t fit! Prongs were too long. So I swapped with fuse 77(intake air blah blah) and put the long prong fuse in that hole and made it home. Thanks

Yup - 2013 F150 - Wouldn't start this morning. Cranked but would not spark. Found this thread and pulled fuse 27. It looked a bit corroded but seemed to ohm out ok. replaced with a test fuse and started right away. Went to the autostore and bought a small box of these for $3 bucks. Now the spares are in the glove box. Thanks all for posting as it saved much time in trouble shooting and a trip to the dealer!

F-1250 2012 Soooo.... replaced the fuse, it was blown, worked fine for a few weeks now seems to be having the same issue, checked the fuse again, it's not blown. Truck starts about 10 minutes after letting it sit, after it doesn't start. I am going to pull the fuse box and see if there's a bad connection on the back side. I'll keep y'all posted.

2013 Ford F150 5.0 V8 XLT SuperCrew here, I was having the same problem, this forum nailed it - Fuse #27 is the culprit. After some a friend sent me a video about the fuel module I am curious that it has gone bad and is causing the fuse to blow - I will be checking that out soon to see if thats is the root issue.

First off thank you in advance for the help. I have 187,006 miles on my gal, I was on the way home tonight and turned the corner 9 miles from home i accelerated to 60 mph and click the whole darn truck died on an old country road in the sticks with no cell service. After walking a mile to the top of the hill I got cell service and called roadside assistance. They towed me to my home, I did a search and found you link. After warming up I went out side tried to crank the truck it would crank but not start. I raised the hood, opened the fuse box and there half chargged was ole fuse #27. I replaced it and off she started again. Thanks again for the invaluable help.

Yep, my 2013 Platinum had the same problem (blown fuse 27, keeping it from turning over). NAPA had a 5-pack of 20A, low-profile ATM fuses (yellow), that worked perfect, for $5. Put extras in glove box. Wondering when I'm going to need to move that fuse to an empty location due to additional heating and melting , but it works for now. I removed the toasted fuse with needle nosed pliers and tweezers, had to yank a bit. Was toasted on engine side.

#27 was the issue for my 2012 F150 Harley Edition as well. I ordered the relocation kit from Amazon. Side note: I did find that disconnecting and reconnecting the battery would reboot the system and allow the vehicle to start up.

Same thing 2013 F 150. Replaced the 27 fuse and back in business. Advanced Auto - 5 fuses $3.99. I almost called a tow truck this morning. I feel very fortunate to have found this discussion.

Worked for my 2014. Just changed the Battery, yep the original lasted 5 years. Not bad, thanks Ford! A week later Fuse 27. "Borrowed" a 20 from my Mass Air Flow, got me to Walmart. $3.48 later im back in business and have spares. Now I just have to clear the check engine light that I created.

Thanks everyone for the fuse #27 answer when I checked i sure enough was half burned and when pulled one prong stuck in the box.

Damn wish I would have found this earlier, spent over 2k in parts and labor just to drive it home and the truck not start, but it did today thanks to you guys.

Truck ran out of gas because of an error in Miles To Empty reading on dash. The truck wouldn't start after putting in 4 gallons of gas. That's when I found this thread. Pulled #27 and it looked perfect. Put the fuse back in and guess what?! It did not start. So I switched #27 with another 20 amp fuse and it fired right up. Never would have been able to diagnose that with out this thread. Thanks!

I had the same problem that my truck would not start... I checked my battery and I even opened up my fuse box up but wasn't sure which fuse to check even though I could have looked in manual and it would have told me what fuse was for the fuel pump. I went online and found this thread and it solved my problem... my fuse was not burned but I cleaned it off and as soon as I put it back in it worked.... I plan today to replacing the fuse with a new one, but I saw that I got something in the mail from Ford and it talks about this kits to reroute the power for this fuse and they extend the warranty for this up to 150,000 miles or 10 years... my truck is at 141,000 so I will get them to fix it at their expense... I feel sorry for individuals that have had the same problem and paid to have the fuel pump replaced when in fact all Ford had to do was change the fuse and or put in that fuse kit.... thanks to all that have responded here... you have save a lot of people a bunch of money....

Had same problem - truck cranked but would not start. Check Brakes came on. Next day started. Then next time wouldn't start again. Drove me nuts and about ready to tow it to Ford dealer when came across this post. Brought a new 27 fuse and worked like a charm! The old fuse was melted on the plastic casing, not burnt out completely, so made contact part of the time. It's working now! Thanks all!

Sweet! found this thread this morning and boom! fuse 27 was melted big time. Hopped in my truck yesterday to run to the store at work and nothing. Turned over fine but no start. Did it the Friday before and finally cranked 10 mins later so I thought it was a one time deal. Got me again yesterday after I had called a tow truck and rented a car. Tow truck driver shows up, it cranks first try. Decided to Google random start and it led me to this page. Thankful i found this. Sounds like its a common problem and the 3 techs at Ford I talked to didn't know anything about it.

Had truck into Fords x2. Both times I had it towed, it started for them. They had it for a week, each time, never experienced a non-start. First time, they suggested a new ignition cyclnder as "it seems a bit sloppy". Done. $900. That was in Jun 2019 Second time at Ford's, they had few ideas except perhaps crank sensor (estimate=$600). They tested obvious components (fuel pump, for instance). Rather than spend $600 on something I can get for much less at a non-dealer, I took it to my non-Ford mechanic and had crank sensor changed. $300. July 2019 Now, truck not starting again (Aug 2019). Towed back to my non-Ford mechanic. The vehicle didn't start when it got there, but they couldn't work on it right then - except to check codes ("fuel level low"). I had just put 15 gals in the tank about 70 miles earlier. When they checked the truck again an hour later, it started fine. Fuses checked; No issues. They are checking the wiring now. No codes (fuel level low code not showing up now). Hard to track the issue down if it starts, obviously.

Finally, it was a cut wire going to fuel pump

Ok you amazing peps! I need HELP! 2011 f150 3.7 2x4. Went to work this morning no problems after work my truck just turns over but won’t fire. It’s not the fuse or the fuel pump I know over the last 2 months my check eng light will come on the go off the next day. Says oxygen sensor 1 on bank 2 and bank 2 But like I said the check engine light goes off. So the sensors are telling the eng not to start! I’m pretty sure it’s not the oxygen sensors that are bad or the check eng light would come on and stay on! What could cause the truck to run rich and make the oxygen sensors to think their the problem????

Mine is doing the same thing code bank 1 and 2 I pulled the fuel line off from engine no fuel when I turn it over I was thinking fuel pump but idk maybe some 1 had the same problem they can help

It was #27! Melted on one side. Not blown. Took it out scraped off the black crud, flipped it, and put it back in.

Fuses all ok. I took off the fuel relay box and started the engine - it started up really rough. Turned it off, replaced the fuel relay and it started like an angel. No problems since.

Yep same thing here. 2013 f-150 STX 20amp fuse #27 melted on one side. swapped it with another 20a until i get to the auto parts store. Thanks!!! this saved me a lot of trouble and time. literally 20 minutes after I found it not starting.
