Step on accelerator and nothing happens, no engine codes

2006 King Ranch, Powerstroke, CC, 4x4, dually, all stock. 110k miles, normal maintenance done.

Driving down the road and stopped at a stop light, light turned green and stepped on the pedal ... idle ... just idle, no attempt to accelerate. pulled off the road, towed home. Not a good day.

I'm not a mechanic, but I have a family member who is, and I'm posting here in case anybody has experienced with this problem.

Thanks.

What are you using to pull engine codes? Some code readers are not really very thorough.

Actron Elite Scanner Pro. (CP9190)
I've used this for my cars.
I don't know if it is good or not for the Truck.

Not sure about that scan tool either.

Without codes or engine data, it is almost impossible to properly troubleshoot.

Can that scan tool pull engine data when cranking and idling?

I would start w/ getting the data below:
FICM sync
cranking rpm
FICM VPower
FICM MPower
ICP pressure in psig
ICP volts
IPR % duty cycle

No, mine is a very basic tool. My mechanic has an AutoEnginuity diagnostic tool, he can read those values when he starts looking at the truck.
Thanks.

These things can be expensive to fix if you just guess at problems, so let us know what your friend comes up with!

Hopefully he doesn't jump at an accelerator pedal issue. The 6.0L accelerator pedal has triple redundancy and will throw a code if there is an issue.

Have you had any long or slow cranks recently? Any exhaust smoke? Any recent work done to it? Checked the fuel filter water drain? How long since a fuel filter change?

Also, I would have your mechanic friend throw a fuel pressure gauge on it.

Torque Pro or Forscan will read the codes without much expense, also read live data on the accelerator pedal

For sure eliminate the codes before firing the parts cannon

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.
