After some research I guess I figured out it is prob the CPS. No smoke and gauges aren't moving while cranking. But how the hell am I suposed to get my arm in there to get the thing pulled out.

It is possible. The last one I changed was in there so tight, I had to take a small pry-bar to pop it loose (after it was unplugged and unbolted, of course).

Got it replaced and didn't fix the problem. I was about to loose my mine and decided to look at the fueses. I found fuse #22 was blown. I replaced it and she started just fine. I'm woundering if there is a bigger issue that made the fuse blow.

Good job! Carry a spare fuse or two, if it continues then diagnose.

Grey CPS or black? I carry a spare CPS too.

Other guys with that fuse blown have had electrical in numerous places off main wireing harness. Look for frade or melted wires.

Congrats on finding the blown fuse. And now you have a spare CPS. Two reasons to celebrate.

Might be fuel heater short too, as I understand it.

It was a grey cps. I've got to put some miles on the truck today, the snow is adding up. Hope it stays running.

Well I was feeling good this morning until I went out to start the truck. Found the same fuse #22 was blown. Where do I start now?
