My 2008 Ford F-250 won't start. Battery's are good. Starter
is good. Starter relay is good. It's like it is not reading the key, but all I did was shut it off, Then when I turned back on. Nothing. Can key or GEM module be bad?
JA: Can you turn the steering wheel at all? And what about the key? Is it worn or damaged?
Customer: Keys good. Plus I have spare key that I tried. Steering wheel won't turn unless running.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I will take to Ford dealer if I have to, I'm a pretty good shade tree mech, and electrician by trade, so understand basics. Just hate to call tow truck.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: I jumpered pins 87 and 30 on starter relay. Engine
cranks, but no start, as the diesel fuel system apparently works off the anti thief system also.
