No Start, No Cranking?

Just went out to move my work truck so I could take my TRruck to the store and it would not Crank over. It is a 2008 F-350 with the 6.4l all thge Lights come on and I can hear the fuel pump running and when you turn the key to start there is nothing. Put the battery charger on it just thinking maybe the batteries were low and still nothing. Where should I start looking? Just got the truck back from Ford a little over a week ago they had to remove the cab and replace all the pipes on the back of the motor going to the turbo. Truck has 52000 miles on it.

thanks for the help in advance, Hope to work on it in the morning

You could have a bad EGT probe in the exhaust. If the probe goes bad you can't start the truck. There is a wire behind the passenger side battery with a round connector. Take the connector loose and use a jumper wire to touch it to the positive battery terminal with the key on and the truck should start. Don't forget to reconnect the wire when you are done. If the truck will not start with the key the next time you need to start it, you need to replace the rearmost EGT sensor in the exhaust or just delete the DPF.

Thanks greasltn, I just went out and tried what you said and the truck Started right up so I put the connector back together and let it run for Five minutes and then shut it off and then tried restatring it and nothing. So I take it the EGT probe is Bad then? I will replace that probe and go from there. Can I pick this probe up at any Auto parts store or is it a dealer item only. Thank you Very much for your Time.

Well drove the truck to work Yesterday and as soon as i hit the end of the driveway the engine light was on. Then i Notice the gear selector was not lit up. I thought for a second Just great so I went down the road farther and the Engine Fan was running and the tranny temp gauge was not moveing, then when i got out of the 35mph zone i knew something was really wrong it would not shift into drive or overdrive. I got to work and went to back into the shop and no reverse light's. Just great just what i needed on a monday morning. Waited until 8am for the dealership to open and they said bring it on down. Droped it off at at 9am and they called me at 2:30pm with the news. The ecm or pcm Which ever it is in the transmission went bad that controls everything. I said how much and it will be around 750.00 bucks for parts and labor. Just what i needed to hear when the truck is out of my hands next month. I really didn't want to put any money into it.

Has anyone else had problems with this? truck has 52000 miles on it.

From now on I will be getting a truck every 2 years to keep it in warrenty and no more three year stuff...

I had one of these sensors go bad about 250 miles from my Home and left me stranded on side of road in middle of the night. Ford towed it to a local dealership and they changed one of these sensors and everything was O.K.

To me this is valuable info. so I just went to my truck and looked is it the Black round connector? What direction do you jump it? And would have this gotten me home? Thanks for the help.
