Customer Question
If my truck sits...

If my truck sits for a day it won't start..there is 12 volts in the battery...2013 2500 diesel. Last week, I started it twice with the auto button on the key fob, the third time last Saturday, it was dead.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

No...but when I try to start the truck manually it doesn't turn over..

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 2500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No..., I take it to the dealer.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

How do I change the battery in the key fob?

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Is this issue occuring when auto starting as well as starting with the key?

When this occurs do you have plenty of electrical power and components operating properly but the starter is not engaging to crank over the engine?

Let me know,thanks Pete

O.k.,do you hear any noises like a tick noise inside the vehicle or under hood when trying to start it at all?

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT.

I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
