1996 F350 shut down no warning

Hey yall I have a 1996 F350 and i was driving down the road awhile back and it just shut off like I turned the truck off. Well I got it back to the house and check the fuses and Max 22 was blown I replaced it and it popped right away so looked up what is in the fuse system and it says fuel heater glow plug controller well I took my fuel filter out and seen that the wire that goes to the bottom of the fuel bowl was broke so I just unplugged the fuel bowl wire on the outside of the fuel bowl well fuse has not blown again. Truck still don't start. Ok now the trust shut down on me in November and at the time I just got out the service and was starting a new job and just didn't have the time and money to deal with it so i left it parked till I could work on it. Well I just put new batteries in the truck due to one my dad took and the other had a dead cell and I replaced the CPS. I am lost on what it could be the truck turns over great and it is getting fuel (and I replaced the fuel filter because I had the old one out to look at the wire) but it has been setting in the yard for eight months and it had a quarter tank of fuel so I drain about have that out and added about eight gallons to it still nothing.

The truck has stage one injectors from Rosewood
the TW chip
and other things but it will not cause it to not start.

Thanks ahead of time for looking at this and helping me if yo can.

Mine did that going down the road when the IDM quit.
I had a shop check mine with a spare to verify but I read here a couple days ago that there is a way you can check the voltage in and out of it but I do not know how.

Thanks I was thinking it was the IDM but just wanted to see what some other people thought about it. I was hoping it wasn't that but i guess it is what can you do right.

Do you get the WTS light?
Does the tach move while cranking it?

if the fuse popped again, replace it, even if you unhooked the fuel heater wire, the truck still wont start til you replace it. Try that before you do anything else

If he gets the WTS light and the tach, the new fuse didn't blow.

This is starting to sound more like something downstream of the PCM. Not sure how to test the IDM; maybe a 110VDC test on one or more of the injector wires? The "dumb guy" test is to remove it and shake it around and listen for sloshing water (evidently it does happen...).

Without a scanner, your best bet would be if you have anyone you know with an IDM to swap them. Any year 7.3L IDM will work.
