Customer Question

I have a 99 international dt466e that won't crank over. I was driving around unloaded and it was hiccuping here and there. Then all of a sudden it died. Has power, but won't crank over now. So warn lights turn on so I'm assuming the ecm has no power. Going to check all the relative wires and fuses now. Any other suggestions?

Check the fuses at the battery box first. Then check that harness that holds them. If it feels sticky, replace it. It melted internally.

Then check to see if you have power to the small single wire. If no power, check the starter relay and see which pin is losing power. This will help determine if the ECM is not sending power or the ignition switch.

On a note for you, if the engine warn lamp comes on when you turn the key on, the ECM is getting power. If no lamp, the ECM is not getting power.

Sorry, meant to type "no" warn lights come on. Last night I pulled the plug to the icp which was covered in oil and cleaned it. Started right up and died after about ten seconds. No warn lights again?

I meant IPR not ICP
Expert:  Jeremy replied 4 months ago.

If there is oil all over the IPR, it is bad. There shouldn't be oil on it of the plug. Replace it and try again. It is grounding out and causing the shut down.
