    Hi everyone I’m new to this forum and have a concerning issue with my Raptor.

    Recently I replaced the battery with a genuine Motorcraft battery, which has started to leak. I live in a hot and humid climate (currently 38-43 degrees) so put the leak down to gas expansion inside the battery which is being vented.

    Since the battery leak my Raptor has started getting stuck in 5th and 1st gear. This has happened 3 times now in the last 2 weeks.

    I would be really grateful for your advice and opinions.

    Thanks

    Rob

    Lots of different places
    Definitely sounds like the lead frame issue, search for "6R80 Transmission Lead Frame" and you'll find many reports of the same issue. Ford but they recently issued this:
    https://www.fordraptorforum.com/threads/recall-19s07-2011-2013-powertrain-control-module.66142/
    In that 19S07 letter it does say that Ford will replace it if it has under 150,000 miles (what like 241,000 km?), and you have until November 30th of this year to get it done. I would try that route first, good luck!!!
