Have you tried to jump start it? How about the battery conections?

Most likely either bad battery or bad connection. (or both)

Re: 2002 F350 no start

Sounds like starter solenoid clicking away due to low / flat battery . As suggested , try a jump start . If starts o.k , get battery tested / charged . When started , put meter on and test alternator out put just to be safe , two min test .

i did clean and inspect battery terminals. I will jump tonight and see what happens.
Will flat battery have anything to do with the gauges going haywire? I turn the key to star the glow plugs and everything starts to blink on and off even before I turn all the way to attempt to start.
