Hey guys I’m new here. I’m having issues when starting my 08 F250 6.4l powerstroke and was curious in anyone has had this issue. I have to turn the key to “on/start” and pop the hood and jump the wire by the passenger side battery to the positive post to start it? Any ideas why? Used to be every so often now it is every time. Thanks in advance

The starter is ultimately controlled by the PCM on these model years. Once you get your truck stared are there any warning indicators that come on? THere are some faults like transmission range sensor or EGT sensor failures that can cause a no-crank condition. I would START by having the vehicle scanned for all faults in all modules to identify any potential problems before poking around and creating erroneous codes that can mislead an accurate diagnosis.
