2002 EX died
2002 Ex w/7.3 died
Ex has been out in parking lot in rain all day. Drove it 20 min to dinner, sat about 2hrs then went out to start and would crank but no start. No CEL, wait-to-start works as normal, 1/2 tank of fuel. I noticed aftermarket alarm LED (installed by previous owner) was giving a double blink. Used FOB to lock/unlock several times, used key to lock unlock, tried ignition several times; no change. Then tried door buttons to lock and unlock, alarm LED stopped blinking. Truck magically started. Everything was back to normal. No CEL ect.
While driving home, I exited the freeway, and approaching stoplight, the engine died. Alarm LED giving double blink. Tried all lock unlock stuff again, no start. Tried unplugging both batteries, alarm LED went out, truck still will not start. Had a friend tow me to his friends house.
The alarm is aftermarket and i have nothing from previous owner for it. 118k miles, bought used 8 months ago, changed fuel filter 2 months ago.
Any ideas?? Truck is stuck at friends house.
