    No crank no start. Happened another time a month ago truck was dead in the yard. Wouldn’t start after being parked. Had technician come out stated it was a connection issue behind the fuse box. Fast forward one month truck is broke down. Same issue no crank no start. Check connections everything appears to be correct. Truck is being towed to be serviced. Any others with same issue?

    Yeah, the whole PowerNet needs to be assessed. This includes, but not limited to: Batteries, starting cables, charging cables, starter, alternator, pin tension, parasitic draw, etc...

    How were the connections checked? Simply checking continuity IS NOT ADEQUATE troubleshooting. This is why load testing wires is imperative for issues like these and superior to any "guessing and checking."

    Poor-performing tech's will always be quick to point finger at PDM, PNDB, CLDS, etc without any substantial evidence for a failure.
