Son of a #&$%

Well, tonight, the family and I went to head to the local high school football game and I hop into the F250 and go to crank her up and all she would do is crank and finally drained the batteries!

I suspect batteries or starter - but will check out everything else - I just had to vent! :blowup:

First the front pump seal - now this! Thank you for listening

I haven't checked yet on all those things - I was in a hurry and its been hard starting for a while now. Guess after sitting for a few days that the batts drained a little low or the starter decided not to start -- I'll be checking on everything tomorrow - I want my baby running again!

The first thing to do is get good batteries in it!! it wont start without 10.5 volts to the IDM during cranking...

If you have high drain stuff, amp or lotsa accessories, I'd spring for the Optimas if the budget allowed... I could not do that when mine died- it was at Wal-Mart, which I show the car at alot, so I grabbed a set of theirs- that yellow Maxx series... about 176 a pair... not what I had in mind, but since it died there, and i took the cores in, i saved the tax on the core.. lol
I would look at where you are the most and what would be around you to exchange if they failed under the time period... mine was a matter of they were right there, and i was not at home, but 3 hours from there on the road with no choice at 9pm in the winter... lol

yep, same boat my passenger side was weak and wouldn't hold a charge if it sat over the wkend so had to buy some, couple people around here said Energizer makes a really good truck batt. didn't even know they made big batteries, but I went for it anyway , not cheap either, so we'll see hopefully they last awhile

Hey Brant, sorry to hear that about your truck. It could possibly be your CPS too. Mine went out on my 7.3 and all it did was turn over. If your rpms aren't moving while your cranking, the CPS is probably toast. Keep us informed.
