Truck died and wont start

Hey guys i have a 95 psd and it wont start. I went outside to start my truck this morning, it started up fine i waited for the glow plugs to shut off and put the high idle on. Not 15 seconds later it just died, no sputter or any thing. I went to start it back up and all it did was crank. I noticed the wait to start light was not working afterwards either. Any help is greatly appreciated seeing as its my main vehicle. Thanks !

the number 22 fuse is for the fuel bowl heater, you might have a short in the wire somewhere!

Just unplug the fuel bowl heater and put the correct size fuse back in there. Drive it and fix it when you get a chance. No harm done.

I saw a picture of the fuel bowl on another thread. Is it one of the connectors towards the bottom of the bowl and if so which one

It should be on the driver's side of the bowl. You will see two wires going to two different sensors. The one on the bottom is the water in fuel sensor and the one above it is the fuel bowl heater. As it was said earlier, just unplug it, tape it up, replace the fuse and off you go.

Yea i already run powerservice but i disconnected the plug and that worked. I think the main issue is the fuel filter sensor i believe, directly above leaks. So im assuming the wire got wet and shorted out
