Welcome to FTE. Since you've found the generic Super Duty section which covers many different years and many different motors, we'll see if we can't get this thread moved down to the 6.0 diesel section so you can get more help from the ones familiar with your engine.

In the mean time, tell us more about your situation, and please don't leave out anything.

You filled up, are you sure it was diesel and not gas? Engine oil full? Any blown fuses? Any issues on the way home last night? Tank still full? How much have you cranked the engine? (If the voltage falls to low the injectors won't fire). When was the last time you changed the fuel filters? Truck parked level or on an incline?

Charge both batteries separately. Then load test them. Then try starting. Do not crank so long that it completely discharges the batteries - it is very hard on them.

Check for codes if you can.

How old are your fuel filters (miles)?

A "no-start" condition could be from quite a few things. Here are some discussed (some you say you have already done):

• Shift lever not in park or neutral. Try restarting while slightly moving the gearshift lever.
• Bad fuel - drain the HFCM water separator and inspect fuel.
• Clogged air filter – Inspect the filter minder, then inspect and/or replace filter.
• Air in the fuel - most frequently caused by a bad seal on the HFCM cap (or bad o-ring). Replace o-ring, lube w/ oil and re-install carefully.
• No fuel flow (clogged fuel filter, bad HFCM, clogged pump suction line, etc). First, remove secondary fuel filter, empty fuel from bowl, and then turn the key (don't start) to see if HFCM is filling the upper fuel bowl, Then, change filters or, if possible, check fuel pressure if you don't mind a little work to install a gauge (install one on the secondary fuel bowl sample port). You can also blow air through fuel lines if you think they may be plugged.
• Oil problems (foaming, loss of viscosity: too thick or fuel diluted). Check oil level for fuel dilution, inspect oil condition, maybe even change oil and filter. Definitely make sure you filled w/ the proper oil.
• Bad batteries (coupled w/ bad alternator) or bad starter (needs 500 rpm to start IIRC) - load test each batteries and test alternator.
• Bad ground or corroded terminals/wires. Check battery and charging system wires and cables.
• Bad anti-theft system or remote-start system - disconnect system and see if it starts.
• Bad ICP sensor. The ICP sensor harness can be removed and the PCM will establish a default control scheme that would allow the truck to start if the problem were the ICP sensor.
• Bad glow plugs or module. You can make a cursory check on this system if you have an inductive (clamp on) amp meter (200 A at first dropping quickly to 35-37 A is OK. Both modules should read apprx. the same.
• If possible, you can pull the ICP and install a pressure gauge to check the pressure in the “high pressure oil system”. Crank the engine and watch the pressure. You need 500 psig to start.

More things that could cause a "no-start" condition:

• Injector oil latching (or stiction). New flash from the dealership can often times help.
• A stuck or bad injection pressure regulator (IPR).
• Injector o-ring failure (or other type of injector failure).
• Bad Fuel Injection Control Module (FICM).
• Low base oil pressure (failed oil pressure regulator).
• Low base oil pressure (bad low pressure oil pump - LPOP).
• High pressure oil rail o-ring failure.
• High pressure oil stand pipe o-ring failure or the pipe itself.
• The high pressure oil pump (HPOP) stc fitting (if so equipped - 05's particularly prone to this).
• The high pressure oil branch tube.
• A weak HPOP pump.
• A bad PCM (computer).
• Bad Camshaft or Crankshaft sensor.

I'm no 6.0 expert, but I'd agree you have to start here. Just because the starter will spin the engine does not mean the IDM is seeing enough voltage to fire the injectors. You have to have voltage for the computer type stuff to work.

Here is a troubleshooting guide I have begun (work in progress). Maybe folks can comment on it and we can turn it into a Tech Folder thread!

Troubleshooting a NO-START:
Pull diagnostic trouble codes (DTC's) if you can (you can have codes without a Check Engine Light).
Automatic transmission fully in PARK or NEUTRAL?
If manual, clutch pedal fully pressed?
Battery connections (including ground) - all good?
Starter relay connections - all good?
Glow plug connectors making good connection?
Is the starter engaging? Verify starter and ignition switch are working properly.
Load test BOTH batteries and check the charging system (alternator)
Fusible links and fuses OK?
Could an anti-theft device be causing the problem?
Check PCM and FICM connections
Verify that the oil level is correct and the proper oil and filter have been installed
Verify that the air filter is not plugged.
Inspect the ICP sensor and harness. Is it oil soaked. Disconnect the ICP and try again.
Change both fuel filters, inspect appearance of the fuel when draining the water separator, makes sure the air is purged.
Check for leaks in the fuel system and verify that the upper fuel filter is being filled
If you can, verify the fuel pressure. Must be over 45 psig.
If possible, verify high pressure oil pressure (ICP sensor) - must be over 500 psig to fire the injectors
Pull the EGR valve and inspect. Clean if dirty. Check the strength of the spring. Consider replacing it - just because.
Also clean the MAP sensor hose and the EBP tube.
Troubleshoot the glow plug system (you need a clamp on inductive ammeter). Test each module wire bundle separately, then test each glow plug.
Carry out the KOEO Injector Electrical Self-Test (Click Test)
Check for wire chaffing:

You need to watch draining the batteries because it can cause you to fry your FICM and its about 1150.00 installed.
