No power to the ignition coil? Does the truck still get power and just not start? Check the ignition switch maybe?
yes its turning over just wont start, does it from time to time, but it did it this time and wont start at all so i checked and theres no spark from the coil, its not the coil cuz it did it with the stock motorcraft coil also. where is the ignition switch and how do i check it? thanks for the quick reply i was supposed to be goin to my cuzins shop to put it on the lift to change the trans pan and it wont start..
please anyone? i think the wires that plug into the bottom of the ignition coil arent getting juice. dads gettin a voltmeter on his way home from work so ill check it when he gets here.. if thats safe? really need this fixed especially cuz its supposed to be rainy all week (=muddy) and we have cattle that i have to tend to so i need the truck.

Could be a bad ECM. Mine burn up and I wasn't getting any spark. You can unplug the ECM and crank it while someone else checks for spark/spray some starting fluid down the intake to see if it fires. If you get fire, it's the ECM.
