no wait to start light.

today i was driving my truck and it just dies on me. So i pull over and try to crank it over and the first thing a see is that my wait to start light is not coming on so i just thought that my chip came out like it has before so i look its in the tight. So far iv checked the full heater glow plug relay all fuses pretty sure everything. is there any ideas you guy have to help me fixs it? im thinking its my cam sensor cuz my rpm gauge does not move when cranking. someone told me thats when you no its gone? but i dont know.

Don't hate me because I DRIVE A POWERSTROKE hate me because I'm banging your wife

No WTS light indicates your PCM is not working correctly. I would double-check your fuses. Wouldn't hurt to remove the chip, too to rule that out. I would definitely replace the CPS too, if for no other reason than to rule it out. (Use a Ford or International CPS)

Check the fuses, especially underhood fuses #22 and #9. Use a meter to test them (plenty of folks have used the eyeball method and missed it). Cheers!

Myself included. My mechanic missed it, too. I found it while it was at the mechanics (After he replaced the fuel bowl heater....don't bother with an aftermarket one, BTW) the second time I checked it. We both felt stupid as hell.

^^^^ +1; bad CPS will NOT affect the WTS light (think about it; the engine isn't even turning yet).

Check everything with a test light and swapped the relays. I'm thinking my PCM took a. Crap on me. I mean what else could it be??? Iv built this hole truck so I pretty much no all the ends and outs of this truck. And it's making me really mad that something like this is keeping me from smokin all the cummins

Where can I get a PCM? I call around and all the auto parts guys tell me that I will need to take it to ford and have it programed?

If you know anyone with a 94-97 PSD you can try swapping theirs in and see if it works. you can try junk yards, car-part.com, and I believe Swamps and Beans will sell them, too. If it's fried, they can't re-program it.

Did you actually remove the fuses and check them?
