02 F150 water in fuse box

Friday night I was four wheeling and flipped my truck up onto it's
side. Semi roll into mud hole. Tried to put it back on wheels while
listening to stereo. But, couldn't get it back down. So, turned off
radio and lights and left it.
It layed sideways in hole for about 10hrs. By that time, fuse box was
soaked. Eventually, got it back on all four wheels and towed out by a
buddy to a place where a flat bed could pick it up and deliver it home.

Truck has barely a scratch - I am astonished. But, self praise isn't
what this is about.... it's about my wet fuse box.
Truck has no power.... but, if I try to jump start it. All lights come
on and the starter clicks real loud - like a machine gun.
So, the question to you other Four Wheelers is:


WHAT THE HELL DO I DO TO GET MY TRUCK STARTED?
Will it air dry and then just electric contact cleaner?

Re: 02 F150 water in fuse box

WD40 (WaterDrying) might help you. Don't forget the fuses/relays under the
hood, and be sure your truck didn't ingest any water through the air intake.
Pulling the plugs and turning the engine over (hitting the starter) to be
sure there's no water in the cylinders would be good insurance against a
bent rod, or worse, when it starts.

Good luck man,

Re: 02 F150 water in fuse box

Go to your local Ford Dealer and get a new main fuse block.
Cost around $97.00 takes about an hour to change. I had the
same problem. Get out your 10mm deep socket and get to work.

Re: 02 F150 water in fuse box

got new battery......... other one leaked "dry"

now I have power, but, everything is on.........even if the switches
are off

and trying to turn it over. a get a high pitched
"whhhhhheeeeeeeeeennnnnn"


thoughts other than the $100 fuse block option?

although, geting out of a roll over for under 300 bucks isnt too
bad....... but, got to pay fer the damn thing, and the house
too........

btw: been a big P.I.T.A. this weekend.......... but, gave some good
people some great stories.... so, it's all worth it.

And, because the jerkoff tow drivers wouldn't go the extra 1/10mi..
they dont have my VIN as a roll over !

Just F.O.R.D. haha!

Don't forget the little gadget that stops the fuel pump if you get into an
accident. You will need to reset it.
