PSD No start- PLEASE HELP

Pulled the truck in today to add some antifreeze to the mix, and now have a no-start. I started it, brought it into the garage, and cut it off. Probably ran for 45 seconds with no issues. I added the antifreeze, wouldn't start. Swapped CPS with a brand new one from ford, nothing. Hooked up the battery charger, it shows full charge. Fuel bowl was about an inch below the top, so I filled it to the brim. Oil in the HPOP was about half an inch from the top, so I added some. When cranking, I have a check engine light, as well as all the warning lights (water in fuel...etc). It shows a battery light, but that's pretty standard. I don't see much tach movement, but it's so cold that I wouldn't expect much. The #22 fuse is good and the glow plugs are working. I don't see any smoke when cranking.

Thanks,
Cole

I don't believe I get a bat light on mine. Have you actually verified that it has a full charge? What about your alternator and starter?

It's cranking good and quick. I've got a DB electrical starter on it, so it cranks nice. I was having an intermittent no-start on it right after I put the starter on, and I was suspecting low voltage when cranking. I put in new 1000 CA interstate batteries and haven't had a problem since. The alternator has been doing fine. The CPS I installed was a Ford, then onethat was in it was from advance, and had been working for about a year and a half. I wish I had a voltmeter to test when cranking, but I wonder if letting it run such a short time earlier didn't let the alternator bump the batteries back up.

They did on the battery charger. I tried cranking with the charger connected, and with jumper cables hooked to another truck while running. same result. Pulled the ICP sensor and tried it, same thing. Engine is on the block heater now.

Hooked the batteries up to the charger independently. Passenger side showed full charge, driver side only shows 25%. Not sure if I have a bad cable or what. Either way, it's charging now. Hopefully when it's full here in an hour or so I can get it running.

I'd reckon its a bad starter connection somewhere, or your batteries aren't able to charge enough because of a bad connection. You can have 10k cca but if your connections aren't good they won;t do you any good. Clean and check battery and starter connections and replace anything suspicious.

Charged the low battery and it cranked right up. Begs the question; why do I have a battery not charging. I'll look into it tomorrow.

Thanks,
