trying to get some insight ...

... into a problem before taking it to a dealer ...

Got a F250 gasser ('15) that just recently started not starting with the 1st key turn ... all the usual pre-ignition lights and warnings come on but when you turn the key ... nothing ... it actually did it once about 2 months ago but I dismissed it as something I did since it started right up on the 2nd turn ... couple of weeks ago it took 3 or 4 turns and yesterday it took probably a dozen turns to get it to crank ... is it as simple as needing a new battery or could there be a dead spot on the starter? Anyone run into something like this before? Thanks for any ideas or advise you might have ...

What is it doing on non start?
Clicking? Starter or battery or battery cables.
Or turn key and nothing at all? Maybe the key tumbler in the dash.
Dragging making the starter really work hard? Starter or battery or battery cables.

Todays starters are head and shoulders better equipment then the old school starters. I doubt it has any kind of dead spot.

Sounds like it is in your key or key tumbler.

On a 2015, I doubt it's the starter. It could be the starter solenoid, fuel pump and/or filter, etc....but need more information...probably something simple. Which power plant is it?

Thanks for your thoughts ...sgrem on non starts there is no sound coming from anywhere you would expect and the only thing following script are the normal dash lights, no buzzing whirring or other sounds ... bw it's the 6.2 v8

With the sort of electronics installed in vehicles these days I was thinking maybe if the battery was even just a little 'tired' or marginal it might cause something odd like this ... in any case it'll have to wait til Monday or later as I got some important things going on the next few days ... hope it doesn't let me down
