2002 F-350 No start

I drove my truck home today from class and tried to start it three hours later and nothing... no cranking or anything. i tried battery terminals, starter connections, etc... nothing made a difference. Any ideas here guys i have an 8 am class tomorrow and two exams and don't have a back up vehicle. Please any tips are appreciated! When i turn it over lately it starts slow then speeds up and then starts if that helps at all

Is it an Automatic?

Lift up on the Shift Selector, past Park, or maybe Neutral, and try. This could be your Neutral Safety sw.

If it's a Stick, you have a similar sw on the clutch pedal that might have failed (they don't really go out of adjustment like the NSSW does)

Does anything else work, like lights, elec. door locks/windows.... sounds like dead batteries.... or alternator... maybe take those things off and have them tested at an auto parts store....?

Re: 2002 F-350 No start

Take the cables loose at the starter and try cleaning them up and reinstalling . Also check the ground where it attaches to the block. Sounds more like a loose connection if it tried once after messing with the cables at the starter.

Check the fuse box, you have a fuse (113?) for the starter. Also you have a relay in there that is your starter relay (regular 30A Bosch type). Look in the Owners Manual..

Bang on the Starter with a Hammer to reseat the Bendix or brushes. You might just have a bad Starter.

Could still be the batteries..... instead of jumping the batteries, take the jumper cables directly to the starter.... put the negative lead to the starter case and the positive lead to the same terminal that the battery cable goes to. If it tries to crank, it could be the wiring between the battery and starter....maybe. Also, check the negative terminal on the battery. On it there will be a ground wire that goes from the neg terminal to the body, make sure that is still connected.... remember tho, if your batteries are not that strong they won't turn our engines over..... do you know how old the batteries are?

Turn the headlights ON then turn the Key to Start. Do the lights Dim way down? If not it's not the batteries.
