Help please, no starter when I turn the key, any ideas?
Hi everyone, I want to thank and welcome and idea's anyone can provide.
I have a 2002 f250 7.3, I was driving around sat morning and made a couple of stops. When I stopped at Walmart I came back up and turned my key and nothing. I did notice that the gauges would tach out and return to 0, never noticed this before. Shifted ino gear and back to park. tried the remote start, unlocked and locked the doors. Made several attempts and nothing. Popped the bottom off the dash and started checking fuses, nothing. I unplugged the remote start and still nothing. I thought at this point it was the starter. I called a budy and we jumped the startred, it turned over and was working. Even though I am running two brand new optima red tops we hooked up jumpers cables and nothing. I tried jumping the starter again and then all of the sudden it would turn over with the key, but it didn't last long and didn't fire. I noticed that the coil indicator for the glow plugs was not turning off and along with it the check engine light was staying lit. I am having my budy tow it back to his garage so we can work on it in out of the cold. Anyone think of where to start?
