My husband owns a Ford (1982 F250 I think) Diesel truck. It was running,
then one day it won't start and no lights. It has battery power, he hot wired it
and it runs fine and everything works for a couple minutes, then all the lights
go out, but the truck is still running.
An old diesel doesn't need a lot of power to operate. After the lights go out, I guess it won't crank right? Should check the alternator and the battery voltage.
