Re: F250 7.3 turbo deisel in limp mode?
H i every body out there!!!im new to this site . and I have a litle situation with my ford f-350 7.3 dually!... this started when, I was charging bateries every 5 to 7 days on a normal basis because they were going death ! ..brand new ones!!!.until I replaced the starter, it worked perfect !. then I was driving my truck the nex day and ,so you now I hit a bump really hard, That one of my spare bateries in the back of my truck, turned up side down.(flipped). both poles making contact with the metal bed ,, of course I did not notticed this until nex day....so the nex day my truck was death as a block .. no power at all, I replaced the power window fuse and 3 more fuses that were out ...as well as the burnt heavy smell on the side of the starter so I went underneat and noticed an ozzing black tar but dried ..(like if it was melted and dried ) but some of it was wet ..when i touched it and smell it ...man.. that was the most disgustig burnt smell i ever smell!!!!...i tought my starter burnt but cranked Ok. I tried to replace my spare bateries and I noticed it was empty and no juice I assume because of the negative positive touching the bed (metal) so I got a different batteries and replaced the bad ones .replace the solenoid ,just in case and "yes the wiring on it is correct" I also replace the ignition safety switch under the steering column. as soon as I cranked it noticed the starter was not burned cause it cranked perfect. not heavy and no check engine light. nice oil presure but knoticed it started to sound a little knocking, and it took about 7 minutes to start getting heavyer and heavyer so I stop the engine, did it again and knocking was heavyer ..the rest is what Ibeen writing to you guys Im going to start with the harnes, as some guy in another forum sugested check the(UVCH) under valve cover harnes,,any help willbe much apreciated!!!! and I will keep you guys Updated..
