2000 7.3 F250 will not start new cam sensor
Ok here is the deal, last week the starter went out on my F250, the starter had been weak since I bought the truck last year, I took it to the shop (pull started, its a manual transmission), had the starter changed and also the recall work was done on the cam position sensor. Picked it up and everything was fine until Saturday morning, it would crank, but not start, or even try to start, for 2 hours I tried everything I could think of (replaced 2 burned out unimportant fuses, even tried starting fluid as it was cool out, etc). Finally I unplugged and replugged the power lead clip on the Cam position sensor, and it started and ran fine all day Saturday (5 or 6 ignition cycles), then this morning, its back to the same problem, no start, but cranks. Unplugging the Cam Position Sensor did not fix the problem, hoping it was a faulty sensor replaced it with one from the local autoparts store, still no luck. I am now suspecting it break in the wiring for the sensor plug, can anyone tell me where the other end of the wire leads so I can do a continuity check? Also any other things I should check in case the sensor replugging was just random luck.
p.s. is there anything on the ignition relay that would cause crank and no start?
