Year, Engine? Lots of possibilities.......... Codes? Needed information for a good diagnosis. You can search un the upper left corner based on your symptoms and you should be able to find No Start checklists and a ton of info.

IF it's a 7.3 -
Key on, engine off, does the WTS light come on?
While cranking, does oil pressure come up?
While cranking, does tach move?

Why is it not a fuel or injector problem?

I don't understand how that wouldn't be a fuel problem.
If there's no fuel to keep the ether going then that would be a fuel problem.
You could try the CPS. That is sometimes shown by no tach movement.
Is the fuel pump running with key turned on?
Does the HPOP reservoir have any oil? It should if the oil pressure gauge comes up while cranking.
You could check the UVCHs. They might've come loose.

The #30 fuse isn't it. You said it yourself.
That fuse handles the IDM, PCM, and fuel bowl heater. If it was out, or ANY fuse for the PCM, then you wouldn't have a WTS light.
Check what i said. You can't "think" it's not a fuel issue till you check all that other stuff.

I'm not sure that's exactly right, when my fuel bowl heater fuse was blown I still had the WTS light. My question is, if you know that fuse is a possibility, why have you not looked at it yet? The internet is pretty good, but we cannot go look in the truck for you...you are going to have to put forth some effort.

need to hook it to a scanner, plain and simple. You will pull your hair out otherwise. Call around and find a mechanic with a real scanner.

Nonconformist. Functionality over bling.

My three rules for 7.3l troubleshooting: 1) Replace CPS and keep a spare. 2) Replace FPR and know your fuel pressure. 3) Hook it to a scanner and check for codes.
