OBS quit while running, turns over, no start, CPS good, no wait to start light

Hmmmm.....

Started the BIG truck yesterday. I decide to let her warm up so I jump down, start walking away and she shut down. No hesitation, no sputtering just off, like a light switch.

This really raised an eyebrow bc I replaced the cps about a month ago. But this is where it gets interesting. I hop back in. Let me rephrase that, I climb back up into the cab, lol turn the key, wait to start does not come on and there is no glow plug relay "click". Try it several times, and same thing. The truck sits a lot so she is somewhat temperamental if not started in awhile. Quick spray of ether... Nope.

To make it even more interesting, I plugged my code reader in to see if I threw and error and it won't connect! It says to check connection. Hmmmm.

I'm sure ill figure it out, but hey, why not hear what the stroke family has to say. It got dark, so ill be checking fuses tomorrow. Any takers?

Sounds like no power to PCM.
Check relay 1 and fuse 9on the chart below. Good luck.

Might as well check all the fuses while your there.

Probably the fuel bowl heater shorted our, causing the fuse to the pcm to blow...its a 30 amp fuse. The fuel bowl heater is the wire connector on the back of the fuel bowl, drivers side. Basically the only connector on it. Unplug that connector, and replace the fuse that's blown and crank it up.

You can replace the heater or not. I haven't had mine plugged in because it shorted out 4 years ago.

All OBSes did for sure. There are actually three connectors on the fuel bowl (heater, WIF sensor, filter sensor); the heater is the single red/green wire.

Hmm. Didn't know that. I figured cause it didn't have a solenoid like 99-03 it didn't have it.

The "solenoid" on the SDs is a RELAY for the AIR heater. Not related to the fuel filter heater in any way.

Here is another piece of information I left out that may be important.

I recently installed a Superchips 1705 in the truck. Check this out this post I've found. EXACT SAME SYMPTOMS, except he ran into an error while installing the program. My program loaded fine, and ran fine, until the sudden quit. That's where the same symptoms are similar.
