Mystery cut wires 2004 Ford 6.0 Help.....

Hi Folks,

I just bought a 2004 F250 6.0 as a fixer upper and completed the Heads / bolts / HPOP / EGR Delete.

Everything went pretty smooth, but now i can't get it started...

Mystery cut wires 2004 Ford 6.0 Help.....-mystery-wire.jpg

Can the picture of these mystery cut wires indicate that the PO cut out the fuse box?

could that be why i cant get it started?

Sorry, just not that familiar with these Fords.....


Thank you

Those haven't been cut. Our trucks come with those wires like that.

thats the under fuse box behind the wires.

the wires themselves are customer access wires (for tow trucks and stuff to run lights etc) there is also another set of customer access wires under the dash.

as for the no start, might take a bit of cranking to get oil to your HPOP and rails, as everything is dry.

Just crank it in 15-20 second intervals and let it sit for 3 minutes or so in between.

Come to think of it,

I think didn't add any oil to the HPOP after reinstalling it......

how much cranking would you think it would take to fill it up with oil?

Definately keep a charger on the batteries. You don't want to cause any damage to the FICM (Fuel Injection Control Module).
