Engine model is a 8DDXH14.0EL OR BDDXH14.0EL Serial number is *****

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

Yes im fixing it for my customer i run a semi repair shop. it got towed in, was mixing coolant. tried to start it to check engine function would not start before i pulled it apart. pulled head and found 3 liners dropped. did an inframe overhual. tried to start, still didnt. my check engine light on the dash comes on for a split second and then goes away. im thinking its a power issue on the ecm.

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

Hi there! My name is Andy! Have you started by checking the fuses or breakers in the battery box ? There is a small power feed harness that leaves the batteries to feed the ECM that has inline fuses or breakers that may be blown or perhaps you have dirty connections along that power feed harness . I would start by following that harness disconnecting each connector along the way and checking for damaged , dirty or discolored terminals along the way that would indicate a bad connection .

there are no small harnesses coming from the battery box. this has 2 wires coming off the batteries, one goes directly to the starter positive post and the other goes to a strip with 4 mega fuses on it 2 125 mega fuses, and 2 175 mega fuses. they all have proper power and the ecm has power on the fuse under the hood. but nothing at the 120 pin connector
