Q: I have a 2014 f150 I started it a couple days ago and when I put it in reverse it instantly died, and it would not crank back,help

asked by on

I have a 2014 f150 5.0 with 50,200 miles on it. I started it a couple days ago put it in reverse and it instantly died, so I put it in park to restart it and it wouldn't crank but it has power to the dash and everything. I also have a advancetrac warning on the dash that wasn't there before it happened, any ideas please help?

My car has 50290 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. Without being there to complete an inspection, the only things I could assume is that there is an electrical fault on a shift solenoid that is disabling the ignition system. In some cases, a pinched wire or dirty connection under the shifter can cause this problem. In other cases, it’s due to a damaged electrical relay.
