Yep good advice could be the fuse for the fuel heater element I think #22. If its burnt then more than likely you will have to unplug your element so it won't continue to blow the fuse.

i had that exact problem just a few days ago. would crank and not fire, tach wouldn't move, and wait to start light wouldn't come on. ended up being the fuse for the computer had gone out.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

I admit I don’t know a thing about the OBS trucks but on my truck the wait to start light has nothing what so ever to do with the GPR or the glow plugs. It is fired by the computer and usually means the computer has lost power (blown fuse) or is fried. I hear that the OBS trucks are bad a bout blowing #22 when the fuel heater shorts out and all you have to do is unplug the heater and replace the fuse and forget it.

Don't forget to disconnect the fuel heater wire or the fuse will blow again.
