this morning the wife left the house and noticed that the 4x4 low light was flashing and was engaged. The truck has never been in 4wheel drive and the slector switch has never been turned. I limped the truck over to the dealership at 20mph,because it wouldn't go any faster than that. While i was sitting in the service drive the light started flashing 4wheel high. The truck only has 500 miles on it and all on the Hwy.:dunno: What would make the computer engage the 4wheel drive???

Well just got off the phone from ford. They told me it is a faulty transfer case motor..I say what the f&*& 500 miles and the transfer case motor goes out:confused: they say the new motor will be in tomorrow morn. and the truck will be ready in the afternoon. The SOB'S wouldn't even give my wife a rental. I say that is a bunch of BS:banghead: I hope this does't happen to anyone while taking a road trip....

I ALWAYS get a loaner for the amount of time my truck is at the dealer. I dont get a truck b/c all they have are Freestyles and 500s. They know I need my truck to make a living so they expedite it for just that reason. I guess it works out ok. :)

If you call Ford and fuss you will get a free rental...I do it every time...I'm not paying for rentals..Now my Dealer knows to just go ahead and give me one because he knows I will call and complain...
That is exatly what I did and they gave me a loner:thumb:

I don't know where your dealer is but my Ford dealer has been most helpful with the availability of rental cars and trucks when needed. My truck spent a total of six weeks in the shop before the FSR agreed to change the ecm due to a cruise control runnaway issue. I had a rental car the whole time. Three weeks ago a radiator leak showed up on a Saturday- since the rental agency was closed they loaned me a shop truck which was fine cause I was hauling stuff to the dump anyway and had my truck fixed by Monday. The rest of these dealers ought to know that the people that take care of us right will get return business and referals. By the way I won't name dealer's names but I live in Redding California.
