Turns Over But Doesn't Start

There should really be a sticky for this subject...

My truck has been running fine, I drove it to and from work on Wednesday.

I went to run some errands this morning but it wouldn't start. I turned it over four times. The check engine light is not on. The first thing I'm going to check is the GPR since it's easy to check. The CPS is less than six months old. What other things should I check and how do I check them?

Thanks

Ok, I lied. I checked the GPR and it was drawing plenty of current so I turned the truck over. Wouldn't you know that it started right up. I guess I'm happy that it's running but I wonder what the issue was. I don't want to be stranded away from home one day when it comes back.

Any thoughts?

No, I didn't check fuses. Do you think one isn't seated properly?

Right, but would a blown fuse cause an intermittent problem?
