problem #1

Jun 072019

F-150 XLT 5.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 49,320 miles

Cruising around 45mph rear differential suddenly and instantly locked up squealing back tires and causing vehicle to slightly nose dive. Originally thought it was brake issue but after reviewing my wife's dash cam you can see it was the rear differential locking up...it was an instant SCREECH and then vehicle continued driving with no issues. No codes, No lights etc.

Update from Jun 15, 2019: Originally truck wouldn't start. When it finally did a Keyless Entry Code appeared on screen (17171) not factory code or our personal code.

I believe someone may have tried to remotely break in/hack the truck so I deprogrammed ALL the keyless entry codes then reprogrammed our personal code. This appeared to fix everything for awhile but now we are getting engine light codes for a bad Transmission Range Sensor which naturally will prevent truck from starting up or if already moving it will prevent truck from downshifting. It may be unrelated, either way though for $50 I'll replace that sensor and see if anything else pops up.
