I have a stock 2005 F250 6.0 powerstroke super duty diesel FX4. Started it up this afternoon (nice day, about 80F out) and noticed some static/crackling noise from the radio. Thought it was just bad reception but it persisted on every channel I tried. Within a few minutes the sound from the radio cut out entirely but the radio display was still on and I could change radio channels, just no sound at all. Driving and doing about 25 MPH now (also, not towing anything in case that is pertinent) and thinking I've probably got an electrical problem.
Within seconds of the radio shenanigans the dash ABS
light came on, then suddenly the electronic throttle control light comes on the dash and the truck starts alternating between having power and losing power (I think this might be the "limp-home" operation).
I plugged in my Scanguage II XGauge and here are some of the readings:
Fluctuating between 600-1100 (operating range should be between 0-4,045, so getting a within parameters reading)
FLP 9.0 (operating range should be between 10.5-15.5, so I'm getting low reading here)
FMP 47.5 (operating range should be between 40-52, so getting a within parameters reading)
Fluctuating between 20.4 to 22.4
After being home about an hour I wanted to fire the truck back up and get some other readings (like ECT and EOT
) but the truck now won't turn over. It just clicks repetitively.
Any ideas where to start troubleshooting this?
