Headed to the airport this morning and my 2011 F350 Ranch

Customer Question

Headed to the airport this morning and my 2011 F350 King Ranch will not start. Cranks about 2 or 3 time and then nothing. Just had it tuned up at our Ford Dealer about a week or so ago,

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

What engine does it have?

And what do you mean by cranks 2 or 3 times then nothing?

Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.

If possible if you cant think of a better explanation if you could take a video that would work.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Engine is the 6.7 powerstroke. I described the attempted start incorrectly --- it continues to try and crank.. Beginning to think it is the battery.
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.

Does it seem to be cranking slower than usual? If so that probably is it. Do you have a volt meter?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Jumped it and truck now running. Not sure why it would have drained down overnight.
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.

The battery is old enough that it could have gone bad. Something could have been left on. It could have something causing a drain. I would drive it to your nearest auto parts store and have the battery load tested to see if its got a bad cell or something.
