Question about 2008 Ford F-350

1 Answer

2008 F-350 diesel 6.4 no power to starter. Dealer says code reads' stuck on start' Then said too many accesories(I have none) then said pins corroded, checked and they weren't. Now it starts fine but this happens randomly. My old fashioned idea was a starter relay but the ford shop says no.Any ideas out there about what this might be? Ford can't seem to find the solution, maybe some good old fashioned experience might help. Thanks. Graham.

89 Ford E350 Diesel - two problems 1) no power to instrument cluster, 2) diesel will not fire off without starter fluid...but the glow plug solenoid does click and wait light goes off

You should never use starter fluid when the glow plugs are hooked up. It can cause severe engine damage. You probably need to replace all the glow plugs and the glow plug controller.

Why wont heat blow out of car with the automatic starter

Heater and radio are supply power by the "Accesories position"
If you know about electronic and wiring.
Q: Does the automatic starter has 12 volts power source Only after the car start...?
A:Yes. You can hook up a wire from it to the accesories. You should be good to go.
Or you can hook up straight from the alternater out put to accesorie position.

Good luck.

I have a 2002 Trailblazer. This has happened 3 times in about 6 months. Usually it works fine, but sometimes I turn the ignition key and all accesories come on, but nothing on the engine. Eventually...

you could have a dead spot in your starter. The next time this happens, have someone turn the key and tap on the starter with a stick or a wrench -- this can sometimes jolt the starter out of the dead spot and get you started. If this works, get your starter replaced and you should not have any more problems. If you can, take it to a mechanic before it happens again and see if they come up with the same diagnosis. If the mechanic finds it is the starter, get it replaced ASAP so you don't get stuck somewhere.

Trouble with starter motor struggles to start in

Check battery cables and all cables on starter for loose connections. Look for corroded cables and don't forget to inspect the ground connection. Check voltage at starter with key off and while cranking if possible. Voltage shouldn't drop below 10V if all is well. Diesel vehicles usually have a higher torque starter, maybe gear reduction. Depending on age of vehicle, could be worn out. If you're a DIY guy, remove it and take it to your auto parts store for testing.

No power when turning the key jump start it while running the starter will engage all on its own

Sounds like either the ignition switch is stuck in the on position, remove the switch and WD40 it.

If not then the starter could be arking out on something maybe a corroded wire or again the starter could be stuck.

Hope this helps

Chevy tahoe won't turnover, power to everything, no clicking in starter to indicate that it is the starter, nothing happens when you turn the key? any sugg

have to make sure the starter is getting power. make sure the engine will turn over by putting a socket and ratchet on the crank bolt and turn it to the right. the two wires to the starter is battery the big one and the little one is for the ignition. ground test light check big wire, then have a friend key it up to check the little wire.
