No Start/Tach shows 800 when cranking
I went to start my truck this morning and had a no start issue that I haven't encountered before. The truck has always started great even in the cold, I do plug it in just to make it easier but today when I went out and tried to start it the truck just cranked and cranked. After the third time trying the truck finally did start but I shut it back off and tried again so that I didnt get stranded at work with it acting up and sure enough it would not start again. The odd part is while cranking the tach is bouncing around 800-1k mark. I did just replace my gray cps with a black one last week because I kept getting a #3 and #8 CCT failure (still failed but truck runs fine). The only other odd thing that has been happening the last couple days is that my edge cts will not power up until the truck is actually running.
I am trying to figure where all I should start looking at when I get home. I figured I would check the battery cables first since the positive side terminal has a crack on the passenger side battery. What are the other places I should be looking at? This morning it did seem like some relays under the dash kept cycling as I was trying to start it.
