No start 7.3

Went to start my truck this morning and nothing. No lights, no crank. It is really weird though..

The door chime will make a repetative noise(doesnt sound normal) and get faster and faster until it stops. When I shut the door or turn the headlight switch it stops. The head lights do not work.. The relay for the door chime under the dash its cycling on-off everytime the chime makes a noise. To the point its cycling multiple times a second. I messed with it for a solid hour before work and could not locate a bad fuse. Im almost thinking its shorting out somewhere?

Could this be the CPS issue?

Really lost guys and can use the help. Its been a really bad week.

The truck is an E99 with a PHP chip. Im thinking I should pull the chip tonight to see if that is the problem?

Sounds like you may have lost a ground???? i doubt the chip has anything to do with it, check the batteries and all your battery connections, you may have lost a ground or have a really bad positive connection somewhere.

Well I had the batteries tested and they both were bad. $300 later I have new batteries and the problem is the same! I was able to get the dash, headlights and everything to work. Then as soon as I went passed the "on" position to try to start it everything went off again.

The #1 relay sounds like it is going to explode it is cycling so fast. This is only happening when the key is in the ignition or the drivers door is open.

That is a good idea. I will look into it.

Thanks for your help

Im thinking it is the connections to the battery. All of them look pretty bad. As soon as I get a break from work(working today too ) im going to change them out and see if it fixes it.

I did try searching and didnt come up with anything.

Thanks
