No wait to start light, engine turns but no start

My 97 would not start this morning. I noticed the wait to start light did not come on. The engine turns but does not start. Batteries are fine should I suspect the gp relay and/or fuel supply issue. I have not had trouble in a long time so I am hoping this will be minor. My psd is a weekend driver and fifth wheel tow vehicle.
Any ideas would be great, thanks in advance.

no WTS on your vehicle means the #22 fuse under the hood is blown. that fuse powers the computer.

Thanks for the quick reply, you nailed it. I'll get a fuse tomorrow. What could have caused this? Is that fuse related to the trailer wiring at all?

the trailer wiring is a seperate circuit. it's usual related to the fuel bowl heating element. i have a 96er myself, my #22 was goin out due to the fuel pressure sensor on the side of the fuel filter housing.

the fuel heater element in the fuel bowl has probably broke loose from its mounts, and grounding out on the side of the fuel bowl. Unhook the element from the putside of the bowl, replace fuse. Depending on how cold it gets where you are, you can replace the element in the bowl or just leave it unpluged.

Ditto. Same issue with my '95 7.3L. Checked the fuel heater element and it was broken loose and there was a popped 20A fuse in #22 where a 30A should've been.
Thanks for the spot on info guys.

What tool do you use to remove the stand pipe in the filter housing?
