What's the plug?

Just got done with my 6.0 Excursion and swapping the headgaskets, studs, HPOP, new ICP, IPR. Basically all the good stuff.

Now the truck won't start. I thought this wiring harness was for the filter minder since it is in the same area but it won't connect.

Any ideas? And would it being disconnected cause a no-start issue? Everything else looks good, plenty of oil pressure, etc.

Thanks!

Chris

Think that's the cam sensor plug. I remember mine having that metal clip on it.

And the cam sensor being disconnected would cause a no start issue.

That's the plug! Now it tries to start but just knocks and dies. Sometimes sputters for a few seconds before dying off. Will try again tomorrow with a fresh battery charge.

Thanks!

A bit of an update. After a battery charge I was able to get it started and running but rough.

Hooked up the scangauge and a borrowed dashboss, no DTCs and everything looked ok.

Today I hooked up my SCT programmer and it pulled up a lot of helpful DTC. Why does the SCT show error codes when the DashBoss and ScanGauge don't? Both those tools are almost worthless if they can't reliably pull up codes.

Anyway - the SCT showed both Cyl 8 injector low voltage and a Cyl 8 contribution codes. Looked a the injector harness and it wasn't plugged in. It was seated but not plugged in.

I'm going to wait until the engine cools a bit and then go plug that in. Hopefully that's it.

Thanks guys!

Chris

You could also have an air lock in the upper fuel filter housing, that will cause it to fuel knock/die/run rough. Easy enough fix, loosen the cap, air pressure sprays fuel everywhere, put cap back on lol!

The one injector being unplugged wouldn't cause it to die, just a rough run.
