Need some help! Struck by lighting!

I have a 1997 CC LB 4x4 with alittle over 152,000 miles. Last month while driving down the highway i was struck by lighting. Alot of the power options still work. But the electrical on the motor took the big hit. Insurance is covering it, but now the cost is getting to the point that they are probably gonna total it. I am going to keep the truck and fix it. The motor still turns over just no fire. So far they have replaced the PCM, IDM and IPR. They say there could be quite a few of the other sensors also. Does anyone have a lead or link to a service manual. I need to find the location of the sensors and other things. I can do the work myself just need help with where everything is. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

i dont have a link for you. but i would buy or find someone with AE and the ford bundle. test all systems and buzz your injectors. lightning could have fried them as well.

Auto Enginuity. AutoEnginuity® - OBD2 Scan Tool - Professional PC and PDA Diagnostics

ford bundle is what we need for out trucks. i think riffraff or someplace has the package for about $350 its software so youll want a laptop or something.

Might have gotten lucky. A friend knows a factory ford diesel mechanic that does work at home on the side. Just got off the phone with him and he is willing to work on it. He has all the diagnostic equipment at his disposal where as I do not. Might just be the easier/better route for me to take.

you are probably correct.

find out how good he is if you can. some ford diesel mechanics dont really know what they are doing, they just read tsb's and such and follow directions rather than think and problem solve. its one of several reason we steer people away from dealers.

best thing to do honestly is do a continuity test on any wire that requires the engine to run. make sure glowplugs are working. if so, don't test those wires. and bacsically do that for any part of the engine system. check fuses, relays, things like that

Sounded like he knew his stuff. Named allot of the possibilities off the top of his head. He actually works for the same dealer where it is sittin at now just different location. He was questioning some of the things the other place was doing. He said he could not understand why they wanted to do the IPR before the ICP. The friend of mine is a mechanic by trade also, does not work on diesels, and told me he is very good. I hope it turns out for the better.
