It is electrically driven and prone to failure - Ford even has TSB on it where the dealer will replace it free under warranty. Problem is the dealer I'd wind up going to is terrible. Bought the part from Tasca parts online and did the repairs myself. Ford extended the warranty on the pumps for up to 10 years or 150k miles. Was worth the $400+ to keep my truck out of harms way (dealer screw ups). Truck is fine now.

Diagnosed that the A/C blower motor resistor had failed (likely caused by low battery voltage on the drive home). This was evidenced by the blower only working in off or full speed. Ordered a Ford replacement part on amazon for $64 and it took 5 minutes to replace. Took the truck to my mechanic to check the charging system, which is working normally. Was pleased that the truck got me home and blame the cheap battery, not the truck for this problem. Battery shorted out at less than 2 years old. Got a jump start and was able to drive home. Got a free replacement battery and installed it.
