How do you remove and replace the battery on a 2001 Ford F150?

On the 6 cylinder it's on the lower part of the passenger side (US) of motor. Most rear drive vehicles have the starter on the right or left side of the motor, just follow the battery cables down.

To change the battery in a Ford (2005) F150 pickup truck - one needs to open the hood and identify where the battery is. It should be on the passenger side, right next to the chassi. You need to disconnect the positive and negative leads and unscrew the bolts holding the battery. You then can replace the battery using the same setup.

Disconnect and remove the battery. Cut off the spoiled terminal and replace. Replace battery. Reconnect.

Just follow the cables to your strater and take off the nuts holding them in place. You will have a negative ground going to the firewall. Take that bolt off then follwo the smaller lead off from your positive to the firewall and remove that. Reach through your fenderwell and you will see where the cables are clamped to to a bracket that is bolted to the frame. Unbolt that one and your done. Takes about 30 minutes.

Cables clean and tight on the battery? If so probably the starter solenoid. (Older F150s located just behind the battery on the passenger inner fender).

Assuming both battery cables are fastened securely at both ends, look for a burnt-out fusible link.

Remove - battery cable Remove + battery cable from battery and starter solenoid Route new cable following original routing Connect to starter solenoid Connect to + battery terminal Connect - battery cable

I had this problem in my 1990 Ford F150. The battery cables were bad and weren't carrying the charge from the alternator to the battery

Is the 1997 F150 Transmission is the same as the 1999 Expedition

Defective battery or something is pulling power from the battery. Check the glove box light, interior lights, trunk light, hood light, brake lights, etc.

I am having trouble finding the fuel pressure relief valve on my 1997 F150 pickup.

In the engine compartment , on the drivers side , by the brake fluid reservoir ( Ford recommends disconnecting your battery cables before servicing anything in the PD BOX , although some people have problems BESIDES resetting the preset radio stations and relearning the idle after disconnecting the battery cables )

Check the starter and the cable from the starter to the starter relay. Also, the relay itself. Could be any of these.

I need to change out the alternator on my 2001 f150 supercrew. how do I do it?

User Avatar

I had this problem. The alternator was fine, it was the battery that was bad. The alternator was "pegging" out the indicator bc it was trying to charge the battery, but it wasnt taking charge. Take the battery out and have it checked.
