Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, I'm Chris.I will do my best to answer your question fast and accurate using the info you have provided. Thanks for visiting Just Answer.
Whats the outside air temp where your at?
Have you used a scan tool to check ICP pressure?
Have you checked the fuel pressure?
If all of this started after replacing the fuel filter then yes you need to bleed the fuel lines at the head on the lines from the filter housing.
OK if the crank no start occurred prior then there is no need to bleed anything since you had a fault prior to this repair. You need to see at least 41 PSI on the fuel.
You need to verify you have at least 500 PSi at the injector control pressure sensor and verify the engine is getting a cam signal while cranking the engine.
Clearing fault codes will not do anything for you, since its a code which means there is a issue which also means there is a repair that needs to be made.
To bleed the fuel system you crack the fuel lines to the heads and crank the engine for about 10 seconds to get the mechanical pump to push fuel out the lines, see item 16 in this Ford image download below.
Are you sure this fuse is good.
When you hook up a scan tool, what codes are stored in the PCM and IDM?
Do you know what the ICP pressure is?
Is your scan tool still not able to communicate?
Have you verified there is power and ground at the data link connector with the key on?
Have you checked the glow plug relay to see if the PCM is commanding it on when the key is turned to run, and this is just not a issue with the glow plug light bulb which will not prevent the engine from running. If there is no power to the relay then we are going to look into the PCM not having power.
Scan tool still will not communicate My scan tool powers up as soon as I plug it in to the data link connector Is there 2 glow plug relays ? If there is I'm getting 12vdc at relay # XXXXX but not relay # XXXXX
One relay is for the intake heater and one is for the glow plugs. See the wire diagram for the glow plug relay so you can verify your checking the correct one.
You need to be looking down on the top center of the engine.
The starter relay is on the fender.
To zoom in on the image, just open it and hold down control and use your mouse roller wheel to zoom in.
You just need to match the wire colors to make sure your actually checking the glow plug relay.
Lets try again.
The IDM is the injector driver module. It should not click, so that means there is possibly an issue with it now that we know where the noise is coming from .
The PCM may work if the E series is a diesel, everything most likely will not function correct but it should work for just a test.
See the image below.
The bog connector is screwed into the PCM which sticks through the firewall.
Are you referring to a power seat switch?
Yes the PCM will be in behind the parking brake but accessed first from the engine side of the firewall.
I have no clue why your seat buzzes, are you sure there is not something aftermarket there. I do not know of anything connected to a non powered drivers seat to cause a buzzing noise.
You can have both tested at your local dealership, they need the vehicle with the modules still installed.
Yes I have replaced probably a 1,000 PCMs
I have the images on my computer I'm not sure how to attach to send to you
Anyways, I still do not see a relay for the BARO sensor. Are you sure its even a relay, and you not actually holding the BARO sensor Download the Ford diagrams HERE and look at page 5.
No a faulty BARO sensor should not be able to prevent engine startup.
Now the mention of it being a cold and rainy can create a issue. Have seen windshield leaks causing water in the fuse box and causing all kinds of problems. Your initial question leads to the PCM not turning on. Also for your information and as a courtesy I would like to let you know this is a pay site and the experts on this site do not get credit if you do not accept their answers. I see you have 9 questions and only 2 accepted answers. All the experts see this and it will become difficult to get anyone to help you if this trend continues as no one is going to put their time into what would appear to be wasted. Pull your fuse box out and check for corrosion, if you find any replace thee box, Al
