03 6.0 Battery issue????????

My truck has 127000 and I went to work this morning the truck seemed fine.. when I went to start it at lunch the truck sounds like the batterys are dead.. but I tested them as they sat at 11.9 volts cold.. which I thought was pretty good.. anything will help I just need to get it running by the time I am off of work.. Thanks!!!

With your batteries reading that low you are probably drawing down below 10v at which point the FICM and PCM will not work below 10v.


Lord I shall lead them to the water but I will not try to make them drink

Test each battery separately. And load test also.

Agreed with load test. Free at napa. Test batteries individually and alternator. Replace with 850cca's or better. I was surprised at how fast mine turns over with new batteries.
