02' F350 - NO START -

when you get into the truck and turn on the key, everything lights up, when the glow plug light goes out you continue to turn over the key and absolutely nothing, not a click, whine, pop... Complete silence.... NEED SOME HELP

Thinking its electrical related.. what would cause this to happen?? Fuse? Relay? lose wire? IDK PLEASE HELP!!

This is a 2002 F350 7.3L

I do not believe its starter related unless its the solenoid but theirs no extra external relay on the right fender???

Cell phone is 248-703-2019

So i think its my starter that is bad, I watched a youtube video of a no start and how to test if my starting is good or bad... I tried to do a quick solenoid jump to start but it sounded weak and just spun and did not engage... any ideas how to quick start the truck?

just to let everyone know this is the video that i watched - thought i would share and pass it on

First, there's actually a fuse related to this (I think it's #113). Second the relay on the fenderwell has been replaced by a small one in the fusebox.

BUT, anytime you have symptoms like yours the First thing you do is to move the Shift Selector around (both sides of P, maybe into N, anywhere really) to account for an out-of-adjustment Neutral Safety Sw.

Then look at the fusebox. Do you hear a soft "click" when you spring the key to Start? (like that relay in the cab) If not, it's probably the NSSW.

Ok so i do get a soft clicking noise when i turn over the key, i had replaced the pcm and starter relay's just in case, I am going to go and try moving the shifter around now to be on the safe side, but when i did connect a power wire to the inline wire to the starter i got nothing in return... which is making me think its the starter, brb i am going to go play with the shifter

Sometimes you can get a bad starter to work by Rapping it with a hammer a few times. This resets the contacts in the Bendix and can also make a stuck brush reseat onto the commutator.

neutral switch was in position and good.... Tomorrow I am going to removing the batteries and starter and replace all of them... hopefully this will solve the problem....

I'm having the same issue with my 2003 f350 6.0. I never had a problem starting it. Sat for 6 months try to start now and nothing. Put two new batteries in it, and everything sounds normal on startup but no crank no start. Checked all fuses and hit the starter while someone was trying to start it, tried jumping the starter manually and nothing. Tried moving shifter around, nothing. So guessing starter? And also something I noticed was when I did try to crank it over the digital kms will disappear, dont know if that normal. LIghts dont dim or anything and radio stays strong, just lose digital kms. Thinking starter but dont know.
