2005 F 350 6.0 diesel won't start. Cranks OK- I just replaced the starter b/c it was not engaging flwheel. I don't hear the injectors making noise with ignition on before cranking like I used to. Suspect IDM. Where is it located? How to test? Is it intergal to PCM? If so where is that located? Thanks!

Thank author of this post/comment"Ford F350; 2005 f-350 6L, Won't start automobile"

If your low preasure fuel pump is working it could be the EGR vavle or the FICM (fuel injection control module)
