This weekend I had some starting problems with my '08 F-250. Saturday I pulled it out of the garage, then shut it off. A few minutes later I tried to start it, it wouldn't turn over. There was a click somewhere on the firewall, nothing more. I scratched my head
for a while, then took each battery cable off to clean the connection. Then the truck started. I left it run for a minute then shut it off so I could put my tools away ect. Go back to the driveway and the truck wouldn't start. More head scratching
, then I took the batteries out to get them tested.Tested ok, surprised the dealer didn't try to sell me a new set. Came home, put it back together, doesn't start. Later it started, I backed in the garage, and shut it off. I then started it and turned it off 4 or 5 times. Looked like problem solved, so we went on a camping trip, about 250 miles. After we got home, went to eat, started fine, stopped at a car wash on the way home. Didn't want to crank at the car wash, didn't have tools with me, but I lifted the hood, looked around and closed the hood. Got in the truck, and it started ok.
It obviously isn't a battery problem, I don't think it is a starter problem, and I hate to replace the starter for the heck of it due to the cost. Any ideas?
