Unhappy Cranks but wont start

Went out to start my truck one morning it started right up idled for a bout 3 seconds and shut off like someone had turn the key off. Now it wont start at all itll try but wont turn over. my glow plug relay was broken so i thought that might be it i replaced it and it still does the same thing. Almost seems like its not getting any fuel but ive opened up the fuel bowl and theres fuel in there so could it not be moving fuel from the fuel bowl to the engine im completely lost.

Does the Wait-To-Start light come on? Is the CEL illuminated? White smoke out the exhaust when cranking? Check the main oil level. Check the oil level in the High Pressure Oil Pump (HPOP) reservoir. Check the fuel pressure when cranking. Happen o have a spare Cam Position Sensor (CPS) to try? Cheers!

We are having the same problem. It will start with starting fluid but will not run and won't start with the key. Fuel in the fuel bowl.

Yes the wait to start light comes on. I don't know what the cel light is, and it does not white smoke when trying to crank. I tried unplugging the icp sensor someone said it could work but nothing and the plug looks fine.
