Default Hard start

started it this morning cold and chugged for a bit then fired up. The start seemed a but laboured as if battery or starter pwr.

Battery 13.5ohms..drops to 9 when starter engaged then eventually works back up to 14.22

Rp100 lp. Edge tuner shows a solid 16-18psi.changed fuel filter.

Codes are;


Want to rule out the simple things before I even go down the VP44 road.

anyone see anything similar??

P1693 is a companion code, means other codes are present.
Po336 is the crankshaft position sensor
p1682 is a low voltage fault
I've heard of dirty grounds doing some weird things. I'd clean the battery terminals and posts and clean the ground connections where they ground to the pickup. Might also have both the batteries load tested. That's where I'd start anyway.
