another long crank issue: starts on the 2nd or 3rd attempt, only after sitting 1 day
I've been reading and searching again and have not found anything to help out with my latest issue. It seems that recently, starting my truck up after it's been sitting for say 2 days, it will not start on the first crank. I turn the key, and it will crank for 5-8 seconds and not start, go a second time, and maybe a third before it will start. No visible smoke, FICM voltage steady at 48-49.5 (recent Ficmrepair.com fixed), and batteries are new. Seems to start fine after that first time. The lowest I've seen the FICM logic voltage is 10.5 right at/after startup for a few seconds, then it starts rising to over 12
No codes, no check engine light. I have a scangaugeII and ICP shows over 800 right around start-up.
It's a 2003, btw. Any ideas where to start? I've read maybe glow plugs, but I do not have any codes.
