F-150 V6: 2013 Ford F150 won't start intermittently. Has 37,400

Customer Question

2013 Ford F150 won't start intermittently. Has 37,400 miles. Took to Ford dealership. They replaced battery, and this did not resolve the problem. Took truck back to dealership and they said they couldn't find the problem, and to "pick it up and live with it". When the truck doesn't start, the battery is dead, so it appears something is draining the battery. From a full charge battery, it will be dead within 8-48 hours.
Please help...thank you!!

Hello, when the vehicle won't start does jump starting it start the vehicle?

It sounds like the dealer needs to perform a parasitic drain test. This will allow you to pinpoint what is draining the battery. There mist be a module not going to sleep and that is what kills the battery.
