97, won't start, no wait to start light?

I'm trying to help someone out with their 97, it will crank over but not start. Before this it was dying while driving but able to be restarted. It didn't run rough before this and has had a recent cam sensor and has run since then. The wait to start light does not come on when the key is on or when cranking. Any help would be great, thanks.

the mainn fuse to ur computer has blown. ur fuel bowl has a fuel heater which runs off that samefuse.. its shortin out unplug it fromthe outside of ur bowl then get a newone cuz if u live in a cold winter area ull wish u had one..go right to ford for it.the plastic tube has left handed threads so it will break off taking it out like u would normally screw something out.and the fuse will be one of those giant ones in ur fuse box in the engine bay box. i think its an 80 amp? if that fusse that runs the pcm isnt blown then idk but mine did the saaaaame thing cuz of that fuel heater. u can see the element coming apart once u drained the fuel outta the bowl.

Just like Don said. Check MaxiFuse #22 under the hood. It is probably blown because the fuel bowl heater has shorted. If you don't live in a cold climate area, just cut the fuel bowl heater wire, tape it up, replace the fuse and away you go. The fuel bowl heater is on the drivers side of the fuel bowl and the first sensor as you run your hand down there.
