Good afternoon

Customer: replied 6 months ago.

Thanks for your response. The driver was at the whare house where he was going to deleiver. Had the truck on idleing and turn it off for avout 20 min and did not want to start no more. From there it had had to get towed to a shop and the shop there said it was the ecm and replaced it with a new one. And also replaced the crank and cam timing sensors. And truck did not turn on. The shop said they didnt know what was the problem no more so i towed it back to my yard.

What i notice when i try to turn it on is, when i tir the key to crank it takes about 4 seconds to respond and start cranking and that happens only when im going to crank it to start the engine. Im not to sure if thats supposed to happen.
