Another starting problem. Nothing happens when key turns
I have been having trouble getting this truck to start. 99 F-250.
It starts great when 30 degrees or higher, but if it gets colder I have to plug it in and if it is below 5 degrees it will crank, but not start. I tested the relay and it was fine so I figured it was glow plugs. Batteries are less than 1 year old and tested fine. I drove the thing yesterday no problem and was planning to drive to shop today after work and drop it off.
It got down to 7 or so last night, but I plugged it in ALL night to make sure and I get in this am, do the wait to start, and then nothing happened on the key turn. No noise,no cranking, no clicking, no buzzing. Nothing. Lights seemed bright, radio and other lights worked so the batteries weren't toast. What else could this be? I just go the alt replaced two weeks ago. Any ideas? This truck drives me bonkers. Thanks all!
