Default 2013 Cranks but won't start

2013 F150 King Ranch 4x4 off road 5.0 engine 34,000 miles. 1. first time driving down hwy at 80 mph and battery light comes on and feels like someone shut the fuel off, then a "wrench" light comes on so I coast over to the side of road and it starts right back up everything is fine! 2. Two days later the exact same thing happens again. 3. a couple of days later get into truck try to start and it cranks like it had new battery but won't start. so I remove air filter so I can get to intake pour a little gas into it and then it starts but dies, I repeat the same thing and after about 6 times it runs for about a minute then dies, I crank again it starts and runs fine! 4. My wife is goes to doctor and stops at pharmacy to drop off prescriptions and after about 10 minutes gets in and tries to start and cranks like new battery but won't start, our daughter picks her up and takes her home. two hours later they go back to pharmacy to pickup prescriptions tries the truck and it starts and runs fine. 5. again today at house (truck has sit overnight) she gets in and cranks but won't start. BTW had it towed to dealer and they said it started fine for them and on codes nothing else they could do! I bought the truck from a dealer where I lived a couple of years ago so raising hell with new dealer is not a good option, the dealer I bought it from is 300 miles away. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

This may not be the same exact issue you are having, but I had similar issues with my 5.4L 2005 Lariat. Basically wife was driving it, light came on and she coasted to the side of the road. Started it back up and drove it to the dealer. No codes, so nothing they could do. The problem happened again a few times here and there.


I did some extensive research and found others with the same issue. No one really had a resolve. Then, the same thing happened to a co-worker of mine. He took his truck to a local repair shop that did numerous tests and also found nothing. As a last ditch effort they decided to do a thorough cleaning of the throttle body and the sensors that plug into it. He has not had the problem since......


I also took my throttle body off, cleaned it extremely well, cleaned the sensor that plugs into the throttle body and same results.....I have not had the problem since.


Like I said, might not be the same issue, but if it helps, I may have saved you some frustration.

Default Update

Update:
After 36 hours of not starting Towed back to dealer again and of course it started and ran fine with no codes. But the dealer did say it could be the MAF sensor and cleaned it. So far so good, seems to be running great! dsa it's looks like you may have it nailed! Thanks for the comment.

Check Fuse #27 20amp in the fuse box under the hood, physically remove it and look at the contacts and make sure they aren't burnt.
