Question about 2003 Ford F350 Super Duty DRW SuperCab
I have a 2003 f - 350, with 32.,000 miles.Had truck out today.Was on my way out again one hour later. I get in , turn ignition, and all i heard was a clicking noise. Truck would not start. HELP Joe
OK...I took my starter to the auto parts store and they tested it, all good. I have concluded that the rust that grew on the solenoid blocked the current from the solenoid to the starter (or from the ignition switch to the solenoid). Anyway - no replacement solenoid is available for the Powerstroke starters, but the guy at the auto parts store noticed they are the same as other Ford solenoids. We tried one of the other Ford truck starter solenoids and it works great! I also cleaned the mounting area and battery power lug and lug to the starter itself. It all works great - maybe try it if you're having problems with your truck.

Hey jdo18015 check your batteries (load test) and all the connections including at the starter also check your alternator if all test good check the cps (cam positioning sensor) they were notorious for failure. they are cheap and easily fixed in 10 minutes some people I have talked with have had to change these 1/2 dozen times in 2 years. keep a spare! if it turns out to be the cps (good possibility) it is a ford recall for trucks 1996-2003-4 not certain on that but it will fixed without charge. hope this helps you,good luck
