    2002 ST:How to wire in a light bar

    The kind that goes on the tailgate and has sequential turn; stop; running & backup. The only way I cn figure to do it is with two relays, but I would prefer not to use relays. The other two issues I am having I must put on hold until I get some $. The A/C with a mind of its own (it works fine...

    Back to square zero. Thanks for the info.

    My A/C has a mind of its own.

    My A/C works in the morning when I start the vehicle, and seems to continue to work. Then I turn off the vehicle, and it may or may not still work, or stop. Then eventually it will start working again usually. and so forth. I do not see any pattern to the failures. Does the ST throw a code when...

    Right. I saw a video on the shims either on this site or Googling. Great news!

    So you reduced the gap by 40 thousandths? what was the gap before and what is the gap now? Was the vehicle on a lift to get access to dismantle the clutch? Thanks for the update. I hope that was the problem.

    Wow. Same mystery as with mine. My shop initially charged me the usual price for the compressor/service, and since then it has been back twice. First time they didn't charge me, but it still didn't work. Second time they didn't charge me either, but it was still intermittent. Every trip to the...

    Waiting for a hot day! Thank God now I'm in FL I don't have to wait long. I leave the settings alone and the A/C engages then stops, then engages, etc. There seems to be some confusion as to which relay it is. I'll figure it out (🤯). I's worth a try. Thanks

    2002 ST Driver door says "DOOR AJAR"

    Yes indeed. my body mounts are totally worn out, and they need to be replaced. Not sure when I will do the work since I use the vehicle every day, and I can imagine encountering issues especially with corroded hardware. I will post when work is complete. Thanks

    I am assuming the whole compressor was replaced already. When the AC stops blowing cold, it still keeps blowing. I saw there is a damper control under the dash that seems to me might be the culprit? Thanks for the feedback.

    My A/C has a mind of its own.

    Thanks for the feedback. I think they are testing it without driving it. I'll look up the compressor clutch idea. When I first got the car back from the A/C repair, I tried several switch positions, and it seemed to me it only worked on the one where both the upper and lower were on. After...

    My A/C has a mind of its own.

    From when I bought the ST (a long time ago but used) the A/C worked fine. Then recently it quit. I took it to the shop and they say they repaired it. I thought it was fixed, but it will suddenly stop blowing cold air. I took it back and they said the A/C worked OK. They had the car running...

    Any helpful videos on replacing body mounts on a 2002 ST. I've seen a couple but maybe there are others. Thanks

    2002 ST Driver door says "DOOR AJAR"

    I asked my repair shop (yes, I use a repair shop occassionally) about this repair and they said they would use Ford parts.

    2002 ST Driver door says "DOOR AJAR"

    The safety issue hadn't occurred to me regarding the damaged body mounts. I don't use cinder blocks with the voids, but solid concrete ones. For working under the truck for the body mounts, I have a floor jack and jack stands. Thanks for the valuable feedback.

    2002 ST Driver door says "DOOR AJAR"

    I looked at a front bushing and it was dried out looking and cracked. The two behind that one were gone (rotted away to nothing). I didn't check out the back one or any others. Pretty much what I was expecting. The truck has 270,000 on the engine, and probably 70,000 on the transmission, so have...

    2002 ST Driver door says "DOOR AJAR"

    Thanks again for the follow-ups. I will inspect the mounts when I change the oil later today. Any suggestions about getting the complete mechanical hardware for the Prothane Mount Kit? Once I start taking the old mounts off, I want to be prepared with all necessary bolts and disks and nuts...

    2002 ST Driver door says "DOOR AJAR"

    I was told that the body mount bushings might become an issue by a mechanic a few years ago. Only one door is malfunctioning. I will replace the door lock striker first and see if that helps. Of course the striker location needs to be recalibrated which seems critical. Thanks so much for the...
