2010 F250 73K ...was...

2010 F250 73K ...was fine yesterday...started multiple times...went to use my bi-directional remote starter. acted fine...looked at the truck thru my window. beeped as normal....then started flashing green on my remote starter fob...went out after about 10 minutes...truck not running ...doors locked as normal...put the key in...tried to start...no cranking whatsoever. lights, fan on full, doesn't appear battery is low...tried jumping...no change, no cranking whatsoever.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the battery? And have you tested it with a voltmeter?

2 years

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F250 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Changed the battery in the remote fob

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

That's it

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Just the normal ....engine light, battery...and oil...but the answer is no the check engine light has not and is not on. But remember the truck is not running...so if something changed from yesterday I cant tell.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
just the normal start up lights when the ignition is turned on.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I disconnected the negative cable on the battery for about 20 minutes then reconnected thinking it might reset the computer... but it didn't do anything. ...also the inside light stays bright when i turn the ignition as if I'm trying to start.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
no dimming
Ford Mechanic: Ray M., Ford Master Tech replied 6 months ago

Do you have access to a scan tool, I suspect one of the EGT sensors has failed and this will cause a no crank condition?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

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.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

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.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
