Engine Died While Driving, No WTS?
97 Powerstroke was having some hesitation around 1.5-2k. Then, it sputtered and shut off (luckily close to home.)
-No WTS light.
-Tach does not move while cranking, but motor seems to be turning plenty fast.
-12v on one side of GPR, no voltage on other.
-I tried to jump both lugs on GPR together to warm glow plugs (is this correct?) truck would not start.
-Seems to crank fine and batteries are good.
Things I've tried:
-Replaced CPS (had a spare, thought this was it for sure.)
-Checked all fuses under hood and inside cab.
-Swapped relay 2&3 (read on here somewhere to do.)
-I read several posts relating to this, but I didn't see one exactly like this: motor shut down while running, no WTS, all other dash lights working, CPS changed and no voltage on one side of GPR.
-I disconnected the battery (in hopes of a miraculous computer reset) before borrowing a code reader.
I'm going to check some ground connections, but since it shut off while running could it be the PCM? I don't want to throw a bunch of expensive parts at it without a good idea of the problem.
