02 7.3SP Starting issue 217K

My buddy just drove to NC from FL and his first morning in NC his 7.3 would not start. He replaced the eight GP and the GP relay and the truck still would not start. He ended up plugging the truck in for 12 hours and got the truck started. The outside temp only went down to 40F and night and warmed to 70F during the day. One thing is that the wait light usually comes on for about 5 sec then goes out. It now comes stays for about 30 sec before going out. He can't seem to figuare this out.
I'm actually driving my 97PS down to NC tomorrow to do some riding with him and said I would try to find some answers. I will bring my superchip tuner to read his DTC's
If anybody has any ideas let me know
