97' cranks, no start, tach doesn't move fuse 22 fine though?

Seems like whenever I read about these issues normally its from the heater element shorting out. My truck started the other day, ran for about thirty seconds and then shut off. It cranks, but the tach doesn't bounce, I'm swapping the CPS in a moment, even though the one on there now is pretty new. I disconnected the element in the fuel bowl by draining it and removing the wire. What is odd to me is that the fuel bowl is not re-filling when cranking. There is no smoke, so fuel is not flowing. Code reader will not connect.

That leaves me thinking its the IDM/PCM perhaps? What is strange is that I have no blown fuses though. Any thoughts? Truck died 10 miles from my house so its kind of awkward to run back and forth a bunch.

No fuel in bowl means your fuel pump isn't pumping!

Good time for an E-fuel swap I suppose. Should the fact the WTS light doesn't light up mean anything? It did when it started initially then didn't come back on again.

I suppose its years of BMW ownership that makes me look at electrical before mechanical sometimes =)

Turned out it wasn't the fuel. Bad ground and some other wires being exposed. Fixed those and THEN the heating element was bad. Just a bunch of niggling electrical things that took a measured approach to figure out. All is well now!
