First, what are you using to pull codes? It takes a professional scanner for our trucks as they are Not strictly OBD-II (despite the connector).

Next, here's a good No Start check;

WTS Light? - do you get it when you first roll-on the key?

Tach Movement? - does the tach needle move up slightly when cranking?

Fuel - pump runs? Fuel refilling filter housing? Tank below 1/4?

Is it cranking fast enough? - it won't even TRY to start if cranking really slowly.
