97 7.3 no crank

sorry for my first post being a pain in the *** question guys but i really need some help on this one. I just bought a 97 f350 7.3l powerstroke. It didnt have batteries and the guy i bought it from says it has been sitting for 2 or 3 years or so... I put batteries in it and did an oil change oil actually looked good, there was no fuel in it so i put a little bit of fuel in it. Now the problem when i go to turn the key over there is no wts light and the speedometer rises a/c comes on windows and lights work then when i go to crank it fully the speedometer falls back and everything turns off not 100% that thelittle wires going to the battery that look to run to the fire wall are hooked up correctly and i found a on off switch under the hood right next to the starter solenoid only hooked to one wire, but on or off it dont make any difference. I noticed today that after i i try to crank everything comes back on and i hear what sounds to be a small click noise comming from the drivers side under the hood. the truck is on 53in tires so any help to keep me from having to climp up there a milllion times would be much appreciated.

check the fuses in the box under the hood. I cant rember which one it is, but I'd guess the one for the fuel heater is popped. It also has to do with the cpu. Fuel bowl heater is in the fuel bowl... one of the soilder points may have broke loose, letting it touch the side of the bowl, causing a short.
If its the problem...you can reolace the heater element or unplug it.
