Yeah, it just won't turn on. I got it to a couple times by tapping it
But it won't come on on its own

I have a 99 F350 and it had the same problem. The chips on the circuit card come loose. Here is a link on how to fix them, it was easy but you will need a soldering iron.

If the chips aren't loose, then it's likely the pins for the connector. The solder joint on the card is weak, and a quick solder job repairs it. If it is the chips, be careful of how long you keep the soldering iron touched, as some chips are more susceptible to heat damage than others. The proper way is with a heat sink on the back side of the chip.

I found a guy on eBay that repairs them. For around 30 bucks mine works again.

Yep, but it's a trade secret.
