You say it "just clicks". As in no turnover or anything??? I get a "click" when my battery is dead. Even though it has a new battery doesn't mean it can't die(especially in the cold). I'd hook up some jumper cables just to see.

I'd say its the battery or the starter. Not that this is the cause but have you replaced the fuel pump driver module?

and for future thought running the fuel that low can cause premature failure of your fuel pump

I have a mustang at home that sits and has battery issues. Usually I start it once a week and drive it around the block to make sure all the fluids are moving etc. I let it sit almost all winter this time and didnt pull the battery . Just threw it on the charger overnight and started her right up.

check the connections at the starter for corrosion and for the positive cable braking off the solenoid on the starter.

Since your truck is an '04 and up north like mine, drop your spare and check your fuel module on the crossmember under the bed, snow or ice may have gotten into it if its cracked open like mine was. Mine would not start in rain because of that.

I just had to have my truck towed for the Fuel Pump Driver Module as well. The truck died and seemed to be out of gas even though the low fuel light had jsut turned on. So I walked down the street and got a couple gallons of gas and dumped it in. It would then start but idle really rough. Any time I put it in gear or touched the gas pedal it would die.

Had it towed to a dealership and left it there until morning. Called them up and they got it in right away for me. At first they said that it could possibly be the fuel pump. If it was it was going to be upwards of $800-1000 to fix. The FPDM installed was $499.26.

Just had my fuel pump driver module replaced 2 weeks ago. The module was $128.73 and the labor was $131.64 total was $260.37 but my truck was under warranty so I didnt have to pay squat!!!!! $499.26 seems a little much!!!!

I don't know, I didn't get a chance to see it. The truck died at about 130AM after I had jsut finished work and was giving my supervisor a ride home. It took me 5 hours to finally get it to the dealer after trying a few other things first. I just left it there and dropped my keys in the over night box and went home. Stayed up for another 30 mins after I got home to call the service department. After having a chat with them they went out and pulled it inside right away. They called back around noon and told me it was the FPDM. I told them replace it and see if they could have the truck done by 3 so I could get it back in time before heading to work. Just as I was about to give up on it and drive my F250 to work they called and told me it was finished. I rushed over and grabbed it and headed to work so I never even thought to ask to see the old one.

I don't know if mine cost more because I was out of warranty or what, but they had $210.00 for labor. Also had $79.99 for diagnosis along with the $128.73 for the FPDM. I didn't know what the problem was when I dropped it off so that's why they had to diagnose it. I was cold and tired and didn't want to crawl under the truck when it was parked in the snow.
