We were just having the same problem with our 1995 Ford F350 powerstroke. We spent alot of money replacing alot of parts and what we came down to is an altenator. We had a brand new altenator in the truck and it still did the same thing, so that is when we tried other possibilities but nothing worked. We took the new altenator out and brought it back for an exchange and put it in the truck and it is working so far. We believe we just had a faulty new altenator the first time. Good luck with this.

We have a 1995 F350 PSD and ours clicks when you turn it on but when the light goes off it stops clicking. There should be no clicking when the light goes off. Most auto stores will test your batteries, you just have to take them out and bring them down and ask them to test it.
What is it exactly doing when you try to start the truck??
Is it turning over, turning over slow, only clicking??

Thanks for a great tip.
Everyone needs to note that in the note section of their owners manual.
With the super cold snap we just had, I had a vehicle which started and ran perfectly.
I parked at the site I was working and the wind chill was 41 degrees below zero.
Got in to start it, cranked over nicely, but NO GO.
Got ride home, and waited for less deadly weather.
Tried to start the dead vehicle one more time (now +14 degrees).
I was sure that when the vehicle failed to start that I was not hearing the fuel pump. I turn on the ignition and listen carefully, especially in cold weather. Real good idea to know the sounds of the system when all is well, that way when things get strange, your ears just might point you in the right direction. Fuse was good, relay seemed good. I could hear the relay click.
The severe cold caused the wiring harness to shrink and that partially opened the connector in the harness which ran to the fuel pump.
Repositioned the harness, checked to see that none of the contacts in the connector had pulled back.
One was, corrected that. Problem seems to be solved.
Ain't that a pip.
