Stupid truck!!! Crazy no start issue!
Here we go... Bought a 05 F250 with 150k miles not running. It used to have a plow on it at some point and the only remnants are the large wires going from the front to the back, weird headlight wiring, and lots of rust.
Anyways, I tested it before purchase with my AE. FICM was 48v constantly, would crank over and IPR increased like it should, ICP did not build pressure. So, Brought it home.
Did the air test. Closed the IPR with AE, massive leak at hpop behind the gear. Bought and installed a replacement hpop and ipr. Still no start. Changed the starter because it was starting to drag. Still no start. Gave up on it for the evening.
Next morning, went to try a start with nothing hooked up to the truck and it would do nothing. No cranking, only a battery and airbag light would show on the dash, no noises when the key is turned on. Puzzled, I go grab the laptop and as soon as I plug in the AE dongle, everything lights up and it will turn over. Unplug the AE from the DLC and it is dead again. Plug it back in and it appears normal. Ran some tests and 2358 injectors failed. There were even codes for amismatched vin. Puzzled... I am assuming it is some sort of electrical short, wire unplugged, chafing issue. But, where to start??
