I am experiencing the same issue with my 2012 f250 26000 miles, I can jump start it and its fine but starter still drags, I called H&S performance and they said PCM need replaced to return the truck to stock, (which I have no time to do working 70+ hrs a week) and take it to the dealer. also who I don't get along with.

We had the same exact issue on a 2011 recently.

Replaced both batteries, and it's been fine since.

Thanks I just changed the batteries, one was leaking everywhere. glad I had that 30point maintenance from my local dealer. (lol) But its been fine ever since. I rather have a lower GI than go back to my dealer.

we were nervous too! LOL

we were hunting for an ECM and in the mean time, my buddy just wired up a push button that took voltage directly from the battery to the starter trigger wire. It worked fine, but we wanted to make it right.

talked with a few techs and one of them suggested a bad battery...

chure and chit, that was it!

Sounds like bad batteries. They do weird things when they are bad, just a thought!
