This happened once 4 months ago, was out hunting, had the truck turned off for a minute, went to start it up and nothing, everything was normal except it didnt turn over.
Toggled with it for a while, disconnected batteries, nothing.
Moved my steering column up and down several times, trying to start and after 20 mins it fired back up.
Of course the dealership couldnt diagnose anything so fast forward to 2 days ago.
Hunting again, truck runs fine, parked, hiked for a few hours, wouldnt start when I went to leave, this time for an hour, did all of the above and tried my remote start which fired the truck right up.... odd.
Being a sunday today and unable to get into a shop I used it as usual and started 5 x and once it wouldnt, this time I had a friend under the hood and he said he said the "black box" on the passenger side (quite a few wires/harness coming out of all sides) about midway between the engine wall and battery was "repeatedly clicking" so he "moved" it (and whether coincidence or not) it started
So yesterday I was thinking maybe it was the ignition switch (maybe a wire lose) but clearly it had nothing to do with moving the steering up and down.
Does this sound like it is the ignition module that maybe isnt engaging/disengaging or something, then randomly does after so many attempts ?
You'd think it would either work or wouldnt but apparently something has a mind of its own but I need to eliminate this problem.
I appreciate any insight in advance, thanks.
