Do you have the old timer cards or the new solid state brain? You should have heater power in manual/auto modes.

Old timer card... My memory isn't that great (failed me a few hundred beers ago...) - there's only one card as I recall, right? I don't see anything on that card that references the SSB Heater (thought it's hard to see very well tucked up with all my other wires). Or should I be looking elsewhere?

Actually looks like 2 cards put together - a little white dial on each one...

I have the v4 with the SSB. I believe you have two cards that are screwed together. Did you check the heater blanket relay on the card?

I haven't - but that's above my pay grade... How do you check to see if the relay is good - and how do you identify it (I'm assuming it's on the card)?

I was having the same problems on my 2005 6.0 and replaced two parts that fixed things permanently: my thermostat (inexpensive and easy) and my oil cooler. What's your coolant temp and your oil temp once your truck is warmed up? If the coolant temp isn't reaching 190* and/or your oil temp is 15* higher than you coolant, then your oil cooler is clogged and needs to be replaced ASAP.

On edit - the restricted coolant flow is likely the root cause of your issue.

I'll have to check those and report back, once I figure out how to get those readings on my auto-enginuity scanner.

I had a new oil cooler put in when I had studs done - maybe back in '09? I've also replaced the t-stat just over a year ago when I was losing heat in the cab during winter (along with replacing the heater core).

I do have a coolant bypass filter on there, so I'm hoping my oil cooler is okay, but you never know...
