It sounds like it could be a battery or a alternator issue or both. I'd start by getting a load test done on the charging system do make sure everything's charging good.

2004 f250 diesel with dual alternaters & batteries. Alternaters & batteries have both been changed & have had 3 ford dealers try to fix it but will quit charging ti the point the engine dies.


Just a thought.......... If the alternator is not grounded properly to the chasis , it will not charge , and the charge light probably will not come on either. Check for loose , or corroded ground wire or strap.

2004 ford f250 diesel wouldn't start; put new battery in it too.


disconnect negatives on batteries. then put a test lite from negative wire to negative post on battery. must have hood lite bulb out and doors closed. if test lite is on you have a draw. pull one fuse at a time to till lite goes out to narrow it down. good luck mrm

Hard Starting in morning


Do mean you have hard time communicating with a scanner at the OBDII connector, if so make sure you power at pin16 at diagnostic connector, also we have seen issue with glowplugs not working properly causing hard start when cold and starts fine after warm-up
You can check for glowplugs operation at initial key-of before cranking by checking for voltage at each glowplug connector with a multimeter.

1999 F250 SD 7.3L cold starting problem


Yes, my 2003 did the same with about 75k miles on it, stranded me on days it stayed under 40F unless I plugged in the block heater the night before, then it started like a champ. Dealer replaced the relay and a control unit under ESP warranty. There's no way to fix this one without throwing parts at it.
