2000 F350 No Start

2000 F350 7.3 'stroke.

went to start this morning, crank but no start. juts got back from the auto parts store and replaced CPS. Batteries were dead to where it would barely crank over. Let them charge for a bit, Cranked it and it started.

I decided to let it run to charge the batteries some, while running i went out, tapped the throttle it rose to about 1200RPM, but on the way down it died and now will not start again.

idea's? is my new CPS bad, or something else.

Could just be the batteries...

The Alt doesn't do a good job of recharging dead batteries. Get it on a Big, Good, Charger and fully recharge them. Even though it may sound like it's cranking fast enough to start, the Voltage may drop below the threshold the PCM requires.

Currently charging. I did get it restarted a 2nd time, but same results, touch the throttle, it revved up but as it was idling down it died and failed to restart again.

on a battery charger, gonna leave it on there for a few hours and see how it acts then.

started right up and seemed to run fine after being on the charger for about an hour.

now to see how long it last, whether it was because they were so dead from trying to start it this morning with a bad CPS, or the batteries are just bad themselves. not looking forward to spending $250-300 in batteries right now.

Or, maybe the Alternator is going...

Put a voltmeter on the outlet (in the cab) and monitor the voltage to know that the Alt is doing then, have the Batteries individually LOAD TESTED (at a high rate, not some dinky 100A tester you need 2-300A load) to get a better idea what's going on.
