Shame on Ford.
Replace this.
Replace that.
Warranty this.
What? Paint under the ground lug?
Can't be true but it is very true.
Removing the ground lug and finding that it is mounted on the painted surface of the vehicle.
Yes it is true.
Sand off the paint, replace.
This simple fix And getting the codes cleared. It was all I needed to not have the clanking clunky starts..... you know that bucking bronco feel...?
42mpg hwy.
It's the ground lug connection!
Found out about this after changing a dead battery for a new one.

Lots of stories about that. Sand off the paint, reconnect, then spray with some goo to keep it from rusting.
