It is not engaging the AF motor at all. It is very strange, I was taking photos of the shoreline as the ship was heading south out of port. All working fine and then poof the camera would not focus.

To amoringello, I have the grip on and have 6 batteries. Have swapped batteries, charged batteries, grip on grip off and still the same. Thanks for the suggestion though.
Well, no suggestion, sorry. I had small AF mirror stuck on one of my cameras. It would hunt from infinity to the min. focusing distance, but would not focus. Looks like yours is different. From my experience Pentax USA would charge between $250 and $300 for fixing AF.
