Have a 2001 F350 7.3 - 3 weeks ago drove it and let set for an hour came out and was completely dead - no radio, lights, nothing. Tried jump starting ended up putting in 2 new batteries. Did the same...


Have the charging system checked. Autozone, Advance, and Oreilys will do it free. Check Diodes.

Some production years had a weird problem. Its worthy of mention but since you replaced the batteries, it should not apply. Watch your Charge, Voltmeter as sometimes the Alternator will disconnect automatically WHILE DRIVING at even 70mph. The system monitors your vehicle for PARASITIC drains and automatically disconnects the power connection as part of a Battery Saver.

So if Battery levels fall, causing the Alternator to work too hard to recharge a drained system, it will disconnect the charging circuit. Even if if you used a boost to jump the truck, it will charge for maybe 5 minutes and then disconnect.

Now for the battery to drain in 1 hour, you should have a glowing part. About the only thing which could drain that much power is a Rear window defroster or a stuck timer or power relay on the glowplug system.

The glowplugs could be remaining energized and you would not know it. A grounding starter could drain the system. Have a draw test performed.

Most anything else would break a fuse or burn a wiring connection.

Clean the Negative battery cable and if mounted to the block, check the engine to frame strap.

Please rate my info.

I have a 2001 F350 diesel 7.3L crew cab. Since the cold night, I’ve been using my plug-in heater at. In the mornings it starts fine. But after 8hours of work (where I can’t plug the heater in), I have to...


very normal with a 7.3 to be hard starting at lower temps the only thing i can recommend is getting a remote start with cold start where it starts it every 2 hours and runs it for 10 mins other than that you need to plug it in

I noticed my truck didnt want to start like it had a weak battery. I drove it anyway and first my abs light came on, then I started losing all my accessories like radio power windows, etc. I got towed home...


All of you accessories can't run from the battery. The alternator has to produce 13-14 volts to you battery to keep the battery charged fully so all the accessories will work. Soon as a power source is powered on it will drain the battery quickly if the alternator isn't putting out. I would change the alternator. Honestly, If you have a shop close by that rebuilds alternators, this is the way I would go. Here in my home town, a rebuilt is $95 as a rebuilt from auto zone is $140-170 and comes with the same warranty. I use a rebuild shop for all alternators and starters. Cheaper and have never had to take one back compared to auto stores.

My gauges don't work , no interior lights no power windows


I had the same problem with my 2003 Ford Explorer. I disconnected the battery, which give the relays a chance to reset.
Clean battery termals reconnect and all good.

The abs light came on and air conditioner started blowing hot. After work the batt was dead. Jumped it and guages were dead for about 30 sec. About 10 miles later abs light went off and air got cold again....


It sounds like the engine is running on battery power only.The engine of today`s technology needs the alternator to have enough ignition to run on,lights and computer,etc,will be affected by low voltage,and amps.The alternator is not charging,look for a charging fuse to see if it is blown.If the fuse is fine,replace the alternator,and have the battery recharged on a slow 2 amp charge so it will recover it`s loss of deep cycle amps.This will prolong battery life and alternator.If I can help let me know.Let me know the out come.

2001 F350 Charging problems


actually the only thing i can recomend is to have the alternator replace again for warranty and before starting the truck charge the batteries very well with a baterie charger make sure to charge them individually because with a low batterie the alternator has to put a lot of load and might burnt again
specially with dual batterie.
