I would like to clarify, there is only one problem. The engine will not start when the engine is at normal air temperature. The truck is in a heated shop. When I put a battery charger on, it will start. The truck ran and started fine without the mass air flow sensor connected. I purchased the truck without knowing it was disconnected. I only discovered it a few days ago.
All of the stuff I put on was put on new in an attempt to solve the problem. It still has the exact same problem, even with the new parts.
Ignition sensor. Sorry, I meant ignition control module.
Heat Sensing Unit. Yes, the coolant temperature sensor.
When the battery charger is connected it will start almost immediately. The battery checks out at 13v. So, the battery is good.
There was two wires laying on the fender wheel well. I assumed they were originally hooked up to the battery as they were close to the battery. So, I hooked one wire up to the battery and it got hot. I disconnected it quickly. I have since pulled out the entire air breather and discovered that there was no wires connected to the mass air flow sensor. Those two wires probably was originally hooked up to the mass air flow sensor as there are no other wires close enough to hook it up. The wires being incorrectly hooked up may have or may not of caused my current problem of the engine not starting without a battery charger.
Would hooking a battery charger up cause the fuel pressure to correct itself?
Would it be possible for the incorrect voltage to go through if the ignition switch was bad? I assume you mean the thing that the key goes into by ignition switch because that is only a tumbler that connects to wires that engage the starter or to have the engine run.
I will look into those suggestions, but it would be nice to know how they affect my problem.
