2001 F-150 5.0L Lariat Intermittant Start

5

Asked by Jul 17, 2017 at 07:35 PM about the 2001 Ford F-150 Lariat Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The truck starts quickly most of the time. Occasionally when I turn the key to start nothing happens. No clicks, thunks or sparks. After a short period (the shortest being 5 minutes & the longest an hour) The truck starts quickly as normal. Any ideas?

The battery checks fine. There is no corrosion around the terminals. The cables are in good shape, and fastened tightly at both ends. There is no grinding, sparking or even flickering a flickering gauge. After what appears to a random period of time it starts. If you need information that I didn't include just ask.
Thanks.
