the dimmer is on the headlight switch it is a turn style type variable resistor with the final click turning on the courtesy light in the cab as well as the cargo light for the bed. you will have to take off the instrument cluster cover held in by clips and a couple of screws then with a little effort to get your hand in behind thee cluster assembly you can reach the top of the headlight switch and there you will find a little spring loaded button push down on it and this will allow you to pull the switch knob and shaft out of the switch then with a spanner wrench or a pair of needle nose pliers stick them into the 2 little holes on the nut that you pulled the shaft and knob out of. unscrew the nut and then pull the switch out to where you can disconnect the plug that attaches it to the wiring harness replacement is the reversal of removal but you can just push the shaft back in without pushing the button again and if it really was the dimmer on the switch causing your problem the you should be good to go. good luck and let there be light!!!

No engine given and wrong transmission all motors are 4.9/5.0/5.8 and they all use the E40D Whether 4wd or rwd and try to read the codes refer to reading obd code reading for process and after they ard read try disconnecting the battery cables to clear codes and see if they come back and if the problem persists was the fluid very dirty and are you sure you put it back together the right way and check the modulator vacuum line for breaks in it and possibly changing it out for a new one about $21.00 at local stores $8-$15+@rockauto +shipping

Doesn't have one , your vehicle has drive by wire . ETC - electronic throttle control . Is the check engine light on or a yellow wrench symbol lit on the instrument cluster ? What's the problem your having ? Won't idle ,revs are too high etc...

Ok there's a few things here ###1 check fluid level ###2 check the shifter cable to see if it broke by getting under the truck have an assistant use the shifter with there foot on the brake wheels blocked engine off and observe if the cable is moving on the transmission bracket and the shifting pawl coming out of the inside is also moving if not grab the cable from the other side and pull on it if it starts to come through its broken if this is not the case and you see the cable and pawl moving on the side of the transmission then we have an internal problem here this could be a blown pressure solenoid / cracked circuit board if you were bouncing around and caught a big rock or something denting the pan this is very possible or a complete shift pack failure or your torque convertor clutch switch or convertor itself has failed so if there was no dents in the pan fluid is good and cable is good moving take off the cable from the linkage arm and try to manually shift it into gear if the pawl is loose with no clicks and resistance when you move it the spring inside has broken that holds it in place watch this video of curt from monster transmissions on you tube okay I tried to tell you as much as I could type in 4r70w shifter pawl and you will see monster transmission come up as well as others but watch curts video first he is very into detail and will guide you through and by the way he likes to call the toothed shifter pawl a rooster tail we are talking about the same thing ok and if your wondering where your info is coming from I'm a taxi mechanic in nyc.with 50 years experience in all phases of the automobile ok good luck stephen

Transmissions usually last in the 250,000+ area depending on how you drive and maintenance intervals and if you are constantly pulling/weighing it down with heavy loads that being said now answer those questions okay next/// is it just overdrive and no other problems exist ? // there are shift pack switches inside the transmission and there's a switch on/off on your gear shift lever (button) I'm assuming you know this put try pressing the button in when driving it's possible that the overdrive bulb blew out and you don't know that your switch was deactivated or that switch went bad inside the gear shift lever so please check this and there's a fuse for it also next if all check out its possible that the overdrive switch in that pack inside the transmission has failed and the whole pack needs to be replaced but I don't think so because that switch has 2 sides/// 1-2 gear - 3-4 gear and your making it to 3rd so it's working but it could be ? But I think the problem is in that lever switch either it's deactivated or it just went or the wire from it that plugs into the connection under or on the column has broken but please check everything first before you start $$$$$$$ chasing the wrong thing like I said the bulb could be burned out and you don't know it's flashing OD OFF and understand that I don't know how much you actually know about these things and I have to tell you all of it because obviously I'm not there to check myself and also ask you questions ok if you don't have the manual go to ford owners.Com and download the full version of the manual for free then go to roadside emergencies and your fuse box diagrams and values are there and the relays locations ok there are also pressure solenoids to but I'm sure that there working also go to rockauto.Com and look up your vehicle and then go to automatic transmission and you will see all good luck stephen

Confusing post but here goes first of all are the shoes (a) facing the right way that the longer lining is in the front? And (b) did you install the retaining springs in the right place (holes in the brake shoe)and the right direction) next you say new lines were put in so ,did you use a tubing bender to shape them along the way you routed them and at each wheel cylinder are you sure you didn't make any sharp bends like 90* and that all fittings are not leaking next when you adjust the shoes extended to just barely get the drums on then further adjust them so when you turn the wheels there's a drag on them /a little effort to spin the drum with the tires on/// are you sure you have the adjuster levers facing the correct way and last of all are you following the bleeding sequence that is needed to get air out of the lines and also did not press on the brake pedal with no fluid in the master cylinder or with the bleeder valves open suckling back in air ? The bleeding sequence for all motor vehicles cars/ trucks is (and I don't know if your in the U.S.A. if you are then follow this ) the first wheel is the farthest from the master cylinder / RIGHT REAR/ LEFT REAR /RIGHT FRONT /LEFT FRONT YOU MUST BLEED UP ONE WHEEL AT A TIME UNTIL IT SHOWS NO AIR AND ALL FLUID COMING OUT AND WITH NEW LINES INSTALLED YOUR GOING TO GO THROUGH A LOT OF FLUID 2 BIG BOTTLES NEEDED USING 1 1/2- 13/4 OF IT IF NOT ALL OF IT AND MORE POSSIBLY // YOU MUST CHECK EACH LINE FOR LEAKS ESPECIALLY THE T BLOCK ON THE REAR END AND THE RUBBER HOSE ATTACHED TO IT AND EACH LINE AND RUBBER HOSE ON THE FRONT CALIPERS TO FRAME LINE BLOCKS ON THE SUBFRAME AND THAT YOUR HELPER IS KEEPING THE PEDAL DOWN AFTER PUMPING THE BRAKES WITH THE VALVES CLOSED AND HOLDS IT TO THE FLOOR UNTIL THE BLEEDER VALVES ARE CLOSED AGAIN AFTER OPENING THEM TO LET FLUID AND AIR OUT IF ALL THAT I MENTIONED HERE WAS DONE CORRECTLY THERE SHOULD BE NO PROBLEMS BUT IF THE REARS ARE LETTING FLUID OUT OR THE VALVES THE PROPORTIONAL VALVE IS WORKING FOR THEM BECAUSE ONLY 1 LINE COMES DOWN THE FRAME USUALLY TO FEED THE REAR T BLOCK FITTING THEN LINES COME OUT TO EACH WHEEL ///IF FOR SOME REASON YOU DON'T HAVE ONE //NO ENGINE SIZE GIVEN 4.2V 6 ? 4.6V8 ROMEO/WINDSOR 5.4V8 /NO DRIVE TYPE GIVEN (2WD OR 4WD) AND YOU JUST HAVE LINES RUNNING FROM THE MASTER CYLINDER TO FITTINGS FOR FRONT AND REAR THERE'S EITHER A LEAKING FITTING AN OVER BENT LINE (TO SHARP CREASING THE LINE) OR SHOES IN WRONG DIRECTION LONGER LINING IN THE BACK INSTEAD OF THE FRONT ( LOCKING UP WHEEL)HARDWARE NOT INSTALLED CORRECTLY OR OR YOU HAVE BLOWN THE MASTER CYLINDER SECONDARY SEALS FOR THE REAR BRAKES THE FRONT BRAKES STOP THE VEHICLE THE REAR BRAKES ASSIST THEM BY KEEP THE VEHICLE STRAIGHT IN LINE OTHERWISE THE TAIL WOULD TRY TO SWING AROUND OK THAT'S ALL I CAN TELL YOU GOOD LUCK STEPHEN

There are a lot of possibilities here first clean out the fuel injection and change the filter as a rule out cause next and this is where I think the problem is your distributor cap and rotor are severely worn and your plugs are out of gap and possibly your wires are leaking through the insulation ///// you stated that it runs ok until you drive it down the road well this is increased load and rpm's and if the plug gap is out or rotor and cap contact gap is out (to much wear on the rotor tip and the cap contacts for each plug) there is an electrical contact loss from to much air gap and this will cause your problem for sure as the rotor spins faster it can not maintain the demand so it misses and starts bucking because it's making and loosing contact as the rpm's go up and down give the Ole girl a full tune up here plugs wires cap rotor fuel filter and some quality fuel and injector cleaner and think about it the trucks needs maintenance and is 28-29 years old now by door sticker build date so you have to keep up on these things otherwise she's gonna leave you on the side of the road waiting for the hook and this increases your cost for the same remedy
