My symptoms are:
It cranks fires once and continues to crank with no start.
The Code reads P0193 "Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor Circuit High Input"
Would complete failure of this sensor create a no start condition?
The car was running fine but I noticed that the last few starts required just a little more cranking. Also listening to the fuel pump on Key On No Crank, it seems like it is taking more than 5 seconds to go silent, but I have not actually measured the time .
I have actually waited until the pump stops running before I crank, with the same Fire and no start symptom.
I do not want to purchase an expensive FRPS without eliminating other less costly no start causes. The car has 160,000 miles on it and has been maintained by the Ford dealer since it was new. I purchased it from the original owner about 2 years ago and have not changed the fuel filter. (Assuming it was changed at least twice by the dealer during routine maintenance)
