A1: Click on "Order
BB Layout CD", here or on the homepage. Print the order forms, complete,
and fax them as directed on the form (different warehouse for Canadian
orders).The first CD-ROM is free.
A2: Available by request through the Ford Body Builders Advisory
Service are 3-D CAD files on a CD-ROM of E-Series, F-150, and F-250/350/450/550
trucks in IGES format. All vehicle component
drawings or CAD requests will be handled on an individual basis. It is required to specify,
in order of priority, what parts of the vehicle are of interest. CAD Data requests for the
complete vehicle will not be processed. Use
to order the E & F-Series 3D CAD data on a CD-ROM. Include your return mailing address,
contact, and phone number.
A3: For E-Series vehicles
refer to QVM Bulletin Q-114.
For F-250/350/450/550 trucks, disconnect the PCM, ABS Module, the Instrument
Cluster and then the batteries. For the batteries, disconnect both
negative and postive cables. When finished welding, reconnect all items
in reverse order from the order they were disconnected.
A4: Refer to QVM Bulletin Q-119.
A5: The Ford Trailer Brake Controller requires a different
brake master cylinder. For this reason, aftermarket installation of
this option is not recommended.
A6: To modify the wheelbase of E-Series Cutaway and F-350/450/550
Chassis Cabs, refer to QVM Bulletin Q-14,
Q-18 R5 and
A7: The APCM is no longer useable with the 2005 E-Series and
F-250/350/450/550 6.0L diesel engines. Stationary Elevated Idle Control (SEIC)
for diesel engines is discussed in
QVM Bulletin Q-108.
A8: Yes, for 2003 and 2004 F-250/350/450/550 trucks. The older
APCM's are compatible with the 6.0L diesel
Not for 2005 F-250/350/450/550 trucks. These trucks utilize Stationary
Elevated Idle Control as described in
QVM Bulletin Q-108.
A9: The 6.0L diesel engine harness
wires are to be repopulated at a later date. This will make the PTOC
and BCPIL circuits functional.
Use of the Park SEIC signal is recommended to replace PTOC for safety
protocols, until PTOC is functional.
A10: All F-250/350/450/550 trucks produced prior to January 2005
will require a reflash to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to
make SEIC functional. The reflash will be made available to Ford
dealers during the week of December 20, 2004. Please check with
your local Ford dealer for availability.
A11: After SEIC is switched on, the PCM takes time to verify
that all enablers are met, one of which is engine coolant temperature
above 140 deg -F. There is also a learning function in the strategy to
prepare the engine for the impending PTO load and prevent engine stalling.
With a warm engine, which has also learned by the first few load applications,
response time to get elevated idle should be much quicker, typically
instantaneous in most cases. Much of this is explained in
QVM Bulletin Q-108.
A12: Refer to QVM Bulletin Q-108
for all Customer Access Circuits such as these.
A13: Yes. Remote control of Stationary Elevated Idle
Control (SEIC) is possible.
refer to QVM Bulletin Q-108
for SEIC control information.

The engine hourmeter is now a standard part of the Instrument
Cluster. Engine hourmeter description and instructions can be
found in the Owner's Manual in the Instrument Cluster section.
Refer to QVM Bulletin Q-117.
A17: Circuit 294 (W/LB) can be found by following the harness
from the diagnostic connector at the lower edge of the dash on the
driver's side. Circuit 294 (W/LB) is half way up the harness and is
blunt cut with shrink wrap on the wire.
Refer to QVM Bulletin Q-89 R1.
For all other engines, contact the Ford Truck Body Builders
A19: To maintain the LEV II certification (gasoline engines)
and maintain the integrity of the fuel system (all engines), fuel may
not be returned to the Ford fuel system from equipment connected to the
auxiliary fuel port.
Refer to QVM Bulletin Q-118.
