Having a couple issues ..... !!!

Well my first issue is having my first 6.0 PSD im a little lost on some things and could use the help from the experts.. the temps are dropping in IL and the other night i went to plug in my truck and when i plugged it in i dont hear anything turning on and i dont even no if i am supposed to and my truck took a little longer than usual to start the next morning i figured that it would start a little quicker becuase it was plugged in. Is there something i should be hearing or a way to make sure it is even working ? and my next question im sure i will get a hard time for but how do i make a Sig? So i can list mods and ETC...... thanks so much

When you plug in your heater it won't ever make any noise. If it does, unplug it IMMEDIATLY! You can check to see if it's working by plugging it in then unplugging it really fast and it should spark inside the outlet. You may have to try it a few time to get it to do it. If it doesn't spark it's no good.

If you go into your user control panel theres a place where you can edit your sig.

Oh yeah, you really shouldn't have to plug it in anyway. Even when it gets real cold.Unless it gets below 0F it should still start, might take a little longer but should start. If you do plug it in you have good heat a little faster though.

It is gonna be easier on the HPOP, injectors and stuff cause thick oil is hard to push. Thin oil isn't.
You can always get the reflash from Ford. It has an inductive heating strategy that uses the injectors to heat the oil.
