As suggested in an earlier posting, I ordered 16, snap-on, split, ferrite
beads (#43) from Amidon. I placed one around each, of two wires, located
above each spark plug. Unfortunately, It did not help at all. Have any of
you received confirmation from other Ford Motor owners,(same engine and
year) that this solved their RFI problems, specifically ignition noise? If
so please have them contact me.

Ground strapping everything is my next step! I'm not sure how to go about
grounding all the side panels and doors. The vehicle is leased and I can't
drill any visible holes. Can anyone reference an established procedure for
this strapping process?

I am sharing this message with all members of the Forum; as I'm interested
in hearing from any 2002 Ford owners who've had this problem and have
successfully resolved their RFI issues. Thanks in advance for your useful
comments. Please e-mail any helpful recommendations to me at: wa4aa@arrl.net
Thanks again and again....Paul
