Asked by Nov 25, 2013 at 12:08 AM about the 2002 Ford F-250 Super Duty Lariat 4WD Crew Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When trying to restart I have to hold the key for about 10-15 seconds to get it to start
back up. Once in a while the truck will die again and I have to repeat the process, but
when the truck is at operating temp. I have no issues. Only 105000 miles on the truck.
