I have a 2004 f250 with the 6.0 my wife drove it then it wouldn't start when she came out of the store I have not had any problem with it myself at all and using the remote start has fixed the issue in the past however due to life situation I left it at my dad's temporarily and now it happened to him and the remote for the remote start died and I have the spare 2 states away. Has anyone had this problem starting and know a fix for it?

If it starts with a remote and not with a key I would think something is wrong with the ignition switch

It does start with the key for me however this issue has only came up when I'm not the one driving the truck. I up until recently daily drove it for the better part of 2 years it happened to my wife a week after we got it and it just happened to my dad but never happened to me the way I got it to start last time it did this was with remote start but I regularly start it just using the key in the ignition.

Maybe your wife and dad aren't holding their mouth just right when they use the key. :LOL:
Not much to go on for an internet diagnosis, though. With more info, a solution might come to light.

Maybe it's the way they are putting pressure on the ignition switch that is different than the way you do it? Maybe you push in/down/forward/whatever and they don't?

Don't think that would make a difference, as the key cylinder doesn't activate the switch directly, but with a pushrod down the steering column. But maybe they aren't turning it quite as far and coming up short of the actual "start" position on the switch.
