Customer Question
Hello! I have a...

Hello! I have a 2012 ford f350. 6.7 powerstroke. It shut off on the highway, and no it won't crank. When I turn the key, I hear the starter engage, then all the lights go out and the engine does crank over. Once I let off the key lights come back on. I have checked all the fuses and relays associated with the pcm/tcm. Any ideas?

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the car in "Park" or "Neutral?" Do you know if your car has a "wheel lock" feature?

I've tried on

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've tried in park and neutral. No go. Yes I've been the one working on it.

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

I've tried all the fuses and relays. Looked at all the connectors nothing looks bad so far. Replaced batteries, starter, and alternator.

I can not tell from your response" and no it won't crank. When I turn the key, I hear the starter engage, then all the lights go out and the engine does crank over."

Will the engine crank but not start or will it not event crank?

Their are no engine codes stored. Engine will not crank, and will not start. As soon as I turn the key, I hear the starter engage, but then nothing. The lights go out, then the come back on once the starter disengages
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 11 months ago

At the starter when trying to start what is the voltage reading on both wires?

Headlights on what is the voltage reading at both batteries at the posts and at the cable connections?

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
