2004 F350 - Wont take a jump and dash and everything is dead
Hi All, I am new to this I am great at looking up info but I am currently stumped and would love any help I can get, I am a car enthusiast I build hot rods in my shop however Diesel stuff is newer to me.
I have a 2004 F350 with the 6.0L in it today I was turning it around on the road in front of my house and the dash died on me so I shut the truck off and went to start it up and just clicking like the batteries were dead so i checked with multi meter and sure enough they are just under 12 volts, so I had my Dad jump me off his denali and it took a bit but got it started unhooked the cables not even 2 min later it just dies, so again I jump it this time took much longer however when you put the key into the on position for the glow plug the dash lights freak out flashing in and out like they are shorting out. Any how got it started again and was hustling to try and get it back into the drive way, again all lights went dead, windows, gauges everything, and then 20 seconds later truck dies again. What I dont understand is why is it dieing, and also when a battery is low usually the lights are dim they dont go crazy flickering. (they dont even flicker all at once some go and then others go, and the gauges go all weird fuel reads full then empty)
Im lost and would love any help.
