Fords have an electric quirk .. that all 6 cells of the battery have to be
hot and running ... so test with a hydrometer thingy the specific gravity of
the battery cells and see if one is dead. 5 hot cells will not do it and
you get game on like you are seeing.
Ford Diesel is the same way dispite the use of two 65 amp battery and 12
cells to test ... one is out .. bad news bears .. .need all 130 amps of
cranking power to turn over the diesel engine with glow plugs up and the oil
Check this stuff out is my first suggestion ... if cell is burned out and
dead, fix is to replace the battery so you have a fully hot charge going on
per factory specs ... then it will start up licky split is that is the
sumbuddie wear blind sea
