Towed to shop this morning. Driver checked it and said it was the torque converter that locked up. Said that’s why truck dies when put in gear. Hoping I can still have a few required things done as well.

May be trading mine in come fall.
Talked myself into, with OK, from
my folks, on the new Ford Maverick truck.
Nice truck, from what I’ve read and watched about it.

Truck decided to act up again today, stalling in traffic.
Thankfully, maybe 4-5 miles from shop/home! However, this time, the OD light was flashing, and the CEL light was on. After cycling ignition several times, to keep AC going as needed in the extreme heat, the OD light went out, and truck would idle normally, when in gear. Didn’t chance it, had it towed to shop, no charge. If warranty work.
Not sure if I’ll hear anything tonight, or sometime tomorrow as to what went wrong.
I know the AC quit after a while, so I’m wondering if belt broke by some chance. Never looked under hood so I don’t know. And AC was repaired a while back. Pipe was welded back together then. Worked fine until truck died today! New truck can’t get here fast enough now!!

Did a front end alignment and front brake job to get it back into daily driver shape for a new job after 3 years of taking a company rig home.

Arrow Re: What did you do to your ranger today thread IV

Decided to upgrade my Pioneer Avic D3 in my Ford ranger to something slightly newer...lol.

Pioneer DMH 1500 NEX. It's the same one in the Solara and I'm going to put another one in my STi. I primarily only use the Spotify or Pandora app. And apparently from what I've gathered the newer Pioneer head units do not have these two apps which is a shame because I really like them.

Also has the standard apple carplay in Android Auto.

It's comical to me that my 20-year-old Ford ranger has a newer infotainment system than my 2020 RCF... smh.
