Exclamation ford f 150 lariat 2006

I am curious about this now. my local ford dealer told me that why the battery drains on the fords is because of the ford solenoid on the starter . now the other dealer said it was the theft system, im confused. again!

Re: ford f 150 lariat 2006

I've been driving the E series for many years now, I'm presently in an 11 that does drain the battery, but we've narrowed it down to aftermarket additions. Never had a problem with a Ford starting in the cold. Had Chevys give me grief in the cold, but never a Ford. Call me cynical, but I'd question the dealership over the truck, unless you know their reliability.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Hello David:

IF such an inherent design problem existed (I've never heard of it), it would have been the subject of a recall.

You can put your confusion to rest with a more knowledgeable dealer.
