2005 F250 No Crank (Urgent)
I woke up this morning and it was 17 Degrees, Tried to start my truck with no luck. All the bells and whistles come on, batteries should have plenty of juice (Dropped to 11 when glow plugs were warming), but I had no crank.I do not plug the truck in, but from everything I know that should not cause a no crank situation. I should have tried these simple things but I was in a hurry.
History: 90k Miles, Truck has new alternator, Rebuilt FICM, EGR Valve, Fuel Filters / Oil Filters, New Coolant, thermostat - All within the last 2k Miles (Bought it used and tried to go thru it as best as I can without breaking the bank.) The truck has run great once I got the new FICM and Thermostat
I replaced the alternator because Autozone tested my starter, batteries and Alt. a couple of weeks ago (I was trying to avoid this situation, stupid me) and said everything was good but that.
I am going to try these things when I get home, but would like to know what esle to look for.
Things I know to try:
Read the codes
Shift into Neautral / Move Shifter
Tap on the Starter (See if it is locked up)
Try jumping it??? Can I jump it with a car? That shouldnt hurt it at all?
Look for Wires that may be cut
Things I am currious about and dont know how to check:
Please help! I would like to fix this without going to the shop because I hate admitting defeat!
