I am not aware of anything connected to the air filter box that would keep the engine from starting. If you unplugged a sensor it should still start, just run rough and the check engine light would stay on. Its possible a wiring harness got unplugged or something got shorted and you blew a fuse but thats not likely. If you don't see anything obvious around the air filter, and all of the fuses are good, you may have to start from zero and find out if you are missing spark to the plugs or fuel pressure.
It sounds to me that if your battery is good and you are not getting any power to flow thru out the truck, I would check my negitive battery cable to be absoulutely sure it is ggrounded. Power will not flow if the truck is not properly grounded.
Make sure that you are receiving a 12volt signal to the coil from the ignition system for the primary. If there is no power, follow it back and make sure that there is no corrosion in between connectors to it or broken wires, while testing for power.If no power after following it all the way back, the ignition in the steering column may be the culprit. If you do have power going to the coil it requires a new coil. Hope this helps
i have a 201 ford excursion for about 2 weeks i could not get it to start in the mornings it was hesitant and would take about 4 tries before it would start. i took it to the dealer and they said the battery was fine i ended up changing all the spark plugs and ignition coils and now the car wont start at all.. please help if anyone knows what it could possibly be.
