Hard to start diesel
This is something I picked up from From working at a General motors dealership. When you are dealing with a diesel engine, Starting fluid is not the best solution.Get a can of silicone spray. A small amount sprayed into the intake system will usually get them fired up and there is not reason to worry about internal damage which is possible using combustible starting fluid.I highly stand by this.

I want to know what
A fuse shows the watt and amp rateing on
top most of the time.You would have 32 amp
witch is odd so it maybe 32 watts
the same with the 46.
But my gut say amp on both maybe this will
get you started.

2001 f350 7.3 overdrive light
The overdrive light flashing is either the detection of a shorted EPC
(Electronic Pressure Controller) or a defective sensor. Bad shifts are
a sign of the EPC, while good perfrormance would suggest a bad sensor.
Also a quick check is the wiring conections being dirty/comtaninated.
Cleaning and di-electric grease could fix your connections.
Hope this initial info helps.

My Ford ikon drained the battery and now it won't start . No crank, no start , mechanic says its the ECU (Computer)
The mechanic might be correct or he might not.
If he is confident the PATS is disarmed and the ECU is receiving the correct supplies and grounds and yet there is no activity to display...
I have a feeling the engine management ECU doesn't control the starter and if the engine doesn't crank it is more likely a dud starter or the PATS (passive anti-theft system) hasn't disarmed properly.
The starter is simple to test as the solenoid can be energised manually and if the engine cranks it is ok.
Do you have any idea why the battery drained?
Do you know the car's history? The engine management ECU is fairly durable and long-lived and expensive to replace though companies exist that can test and repair some of the popular types.
Things such as jump starting, boost battery charging, electric welding or a bad alternator regulator (overcharging) can cause an ECU to fail though often these things merely weaken them so failure could be a year or more in the future.
