We had a truck at work that had a dead cell in it (checked with a hydrometer) and wouldn't hardly start. Just replaced the battery and good to go.

I got a 6.0 that will drain my batteries when I would let her sit for more than 4 days at a time. Still have not figured it out. Even went as far as getting 2 new batteries from Advance Auto Parts with the same result. Starting to wonder if my FCIM is causing it.

Slow crank.



Is this on a C&C truck?..
We have had this issue out of several of our service trucks. Initially thought it was something on the service body. Finally realized some of the modules in the truck fail to go into sleep "reduced power" mode. Dealerships have messed with them some, and have had some success.
