Question about 1999 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

2005 F350 6.o liter no start

Scanner gives code no cam position output signal to the FICM and sometimes no crank signal code. I have replaced both cam and crank position sensors I can see on the snap on vantage occiloscope that the PCM is receiving both crank and cam signal and is sending the signal too the FICM . I have replaced both PCM and FICM with known good ones and the same codes remain. I can crank motor over and after a very long time the snap on scanner will read SYNC yes and then no , after charging batterys and cranking motor over long enough that I figured the starter was going to melt down it did start and set a cylinder distribution #4 fault. after turning ignition off the only way too restart is crank for another 30 to 40 seconds. when running seems to run ok. when cranking the scanner shows controll preasure above 600 fairly quickly. I also did replace the control preasure regulator. when I began working on this truck it would not do the injector buzz test because the controll preasure was reading 900 KOEO. after unplugging and replugging conroll presure sensor it went to zero then it did the buzz test and set no codes. I have cleared the codes many times and it resets the cam position output sensor code every time , I know without a doubt the signal is there. there is not a security issue that I am aware of I have been working on this truck for about five weeks , and dont want too give up but I have done every thing I can think of , If I was rich I would pay someone 1000 000 000 dollars to fix this but I am not.I have tryed our local Ford dealerships and they have no clue what the problem is any help would be greatly appreciated thanks

Forget any Ford Dealers, you need to find a shop that Specializes in diesels. You should be able to find one in you area. Any shop that does a lot of light diesel truck work should have someone with the knowledge to get you going. Call around to a few shops and see who they refer their "Problem Child" diesels to.

Crank no start


run fault codes and check the crank/cam position sensor. Check that the timing belt is driving the cam shaft.

Check powertrain in Chevrolet Lumina s (V6) 2005 model


The check power train light will come on when the computer sees a problem with performance, the code you got was cam sensor,

You may have a bad cam sensor but testing will need to be done to make sure, there may be another problem causing cam code.

i would start with checking wiring to cam sensor and see what the noise is, may have bad crank pulley,

Have a 04 excursion 6.0L diesel. have been driving it with no problems then after a rain storm it will not start. Batteries are fine, no fuses blown, but won't crank. Ideas?


When say wont crank..Do you mean it will turn over but not start,,or do you mean it wont even turn over..I work on 6.0 liters all the time,,and you really need a scanner to see if your FICM has gone bad or other electronics...Plus your high pressure oil pump could have went out..They dont really give you much warning on them engines when something goes out..

03 F350 6.0 diesel. Won't start. Sometimes starts when extremely cold. Was told needs oil pump. I assume it is the fuel oil pump. Quoted a $2000 price to change it. I am a mechanic but not a diesel...


its not the pump if it runs at all...try giving the batteries a good charge seperately out of the truck. if the voltage goes under 9volts when cranking the pcm will not boot up and send the cam signal to the ficm. also plugging in the block heater may help.

2005 F250 won`t start


You can get the wiring diagram at www.alldatadiy.com and it will have all the codes and will have the information to test before you order the parts, also have you replaced the fuel pump? fuel sock? it also has two pumps a primary and the secondary check for fuel rail pressure, to test injector remove injector wire and test with digital ohm meter test the power post of the injector to ground. if it read 5 ohms or less it is ok. Have you checked the glow pulgs and glow plug timer is it stuck on removing power from injectors, need more information to give you a better answer.

Replace your camshaft sensor and check for a vacuum leak in your intake manifold, mostly towards the back. If you have a leak it will give false readings on your code reader. My truck was doing the same thing and we found the endcap on the maifold had blown off after a back-fire. We reglued the endcap and replaced crank and camshaft sensor and the truck runs better than it ever has!!! GOOD LUCK!!!!
