6.0L 2005 intermittent no crank!?
My F350's been in the shop quite a bit and I keep hoping it will be reliable sometime SOON.
When the truck runs, it runs great. Starting it has always been the problem.
I've been having an intermittent problem with starting over the last year. Glow plugs light up, fuel pump engages, all gauges come up, then I turn the key to crank and nothing. No crank, no starter click, nothing. All the gauges and stereo goes blank like usual when you crank and start the engine. But nothing happens.
Sometimes if I leave the key in the cranking position it will crank and start about 2 seconds later.
No CEL's or other codes.
Truck has 108K miles.
Here's what I've done so far.
New HPOP valve
New Cam position sensor
New injector HPO seals
New fuel pressure regulator spring.
New HPO rail plugs
Truck has 2 matched Interstate batteries that have been tested by Interstate recently and they are in great shape.
When it cranks it always starts now, so I'm pretty sure it's not the starter?
I'm thinking possibly the ignition switch maybe?
Other than that I'm really at a loss, and seeing how it's an intermittent problem, it's difficult to trouble shoot.
Anyone have suggestions on where to look next or what to try?
