Have you tried to "jumper it" to crank the engine over? Are you getting power to the yellow with light blue stripe coloured wire on the passenger side, in the engine compartment when the key is turned to the START position (in PARK or NEUTRAL of course)?

Check your ignition fuse, small square fuse with plexiglass type cover under the dash.

I had this same problem on my 04 e350 with a 6.0 powerstroke

checked fuse, checked for 12v on both ends of fuse, 12v from ignition switch = all ok

turned it over by shorting the +12 from the batt cable to solenoid = starter + solenoid ok

cranked engine by manually activating cranking relay under the hood = relay + wire to solenoid ok (pita but vehicle usable again, whew!)

scratched head for a bit, noticed oddball splices on other circuits and began to wonder about 30A fuse in 5A ign slot...

decided wire from dash fuse panel to relay must be bad (blown fusable link?) ran bypass - no improvement

eyeballed 30A fuse again, swapped for interior lights fuse, lights worked, engine cranked twice then nothing - wth ?????


long story short (too late I know) the contacts in the fuse panel were corroded / bent - fuse wasn't always making contact
