Wont start after turning off

My 99 7.3 does not start after I turn it off. I figure a battery went bad, but lights and everything else works. Charged the batteries up, drove for a while...shut off for about 45 min, came out...started it, acted like it didnt want to for a second and started right up. drove it for a couple minutes, turned it off, came back about an hour later and it wont start. Any info? Thanks a lot.

check the basics , oil level, pull the fuel filter cap off and see if you have fuel in the bowl, cycle the key and see if it fills the bowl, and if all good there would get codes pulled

Is it cranking. If not your starter maybe going bad. When you turn the key, is the starter sounding like it is trying to engage but can't. If so most likely the problem is the starter. When the starter is hot from the engine temp. The abendix swells not allowing it to engage. After it cools down the abendix is not swollen and is able to engage and crank the engine. Replace the starter and you will be fine. That is if it is an electrical issue. You state it acts like you have dead batteries so I am thinking starter.

It cranks.

Like I said, after I charge the batteries I'm fine. Drove 45 min home last night. Let sit, cranks, but doesn't start. Also get a very loud clicking noise while waiting before start.

Thanks for the input.

The clicking should be your glow plug relay, But mine isn't that loud. And it only clicks on then off about 2 minutes later(when cold).

As Big C said, the starter can cause this, mine did at the beggining of the summer, I thought batteries too. $200 later, I went and had my starter tested. It was bad.
These engines have to crank fast, or they won't run.

LOL

If its not the starter, or batteries, could it be anything else?

Alright I'm going to test it out. Will report back. Thanks

Yes , lots of things.

With the clicking, I would check glow plugs, relay ect...

Also, when you crank it, do you get any white smoke?

No white smoke.
