A Different Starting Problem
Hello Powerstroke gurus! First I want to thank you for taking the time to read my post and assist if possible. I am military, stationed in Alaska, and If I dont get this fixed soon, Ill be SOL as my truck is too big to fit in most garages.
My truck has a wierd electrical problem I believe. First, and mainly it wont start. Not even the common starter solenoid click. When I turn the key on, I get all normal indications, guages, ding ding, etc. But then when I turn the key forward to start it, I get nothing. No click under the hood, no click at the starter. (Almost seems like it doesnt realize that its in park) For some reason though, the doors lock everytime I turn the key forward. I dont remember it doing that before.
Second, there are two relays, between the airbox and the pwr. dist. block that choose to randomly click back and forth, back and forth. It doesnt matter if the key is on, off, or out of it. Does anyone know what these relays are for?
Third, there is some sort of electrical switch/motor on the transfer case that tries to randomly engage/disengage, usually after I try to start it, then turn the key off, it trys quite a few times.
Again I want to thank you for your time. I have been reasearching all day, but everything I found pertains to no start with the relay/solenoid click.
