I was coming to the conclusion myself that the batteries were weak. One of the other symptoms, is the power locks don't work. You hit the button and while the solenoids all make noise, it doesn't lock or unlock. (had the same symptoms on my car just before replacing the battery, the car battery was down to 47 cca)

But, I've had the truck for just over a week, and didn't want to make any assumptions.

A pair of these will work? http://www.interstatebatteries.com/c...l_V8%2f7.3L%29

Current Truck (new to me): 2001 F-350 Off Road Crew Cab Lariat, Red / Tan Leather
100% Stock 7.3L PowerStroke turbo / 4x4 / 3.73 / Wildcat A/T / original motor & tranny with ~250k miles
Recent work: #1 injector & harness, oil pan replaced, front and rear main's replaced, new windshield, all new brakes, steering linkage and rod ends.
Future work: steering gearbox, figure out why door locks are weak.
