Question No wait to start light

I recently bought a 97 f250 heavy duty. I moved into my garage to do work on it, started up fine and everything. Just before moving it into my garage I replaced the fuel filter. I parked it in the garage for about 6 hours then when i tried to start it the wait to start light never came on, and would not start. I unplugged the fuel heater and and replaced fuse #22 and #9. Still wont start. I've read the other threads on this but could figure it out. Did i do something wrong when replacing fuses? I put a meter on the GPR red/green wire, I don't get a lot of current. how much should i be getting? My battery light also came on a few days ago.

Check fuse #22 again and make sure that it was the fuel heater that was disconnected (many folks disconnect the fuel restriction sensor instead). Since your truck is a 97, do you know if it is a California model (look for the pulse dampener, aka the Starship Enterprise, on the back end of the fuel pump under the turbo pedestal). Cheers!

You won't get any current on that wire, since there's no resistor upstream of the connection at the relay. What is the VOLTAGE on that wire?

I checked the fuses they are all fine, I checked the old ones i took out o they were also fine. And I disconnected the fuel bowl heater by taking the fuel filter out and and the pedestal and unhooking it from there.

Before I moved the truck into the garage It was cold and i did have a rough start. I think that might of caused something.
My truck Does not have the pulse dampener under the turbo.

Update: I have found the problem. Blown fuse #13.
