Wait to start light doesn't turn on-truck wont start!

Hi i'm new to this site and was hoping someone could help me out.. I own a 2001 7.3 PSD. Truck has not been started for about a week. Went to move it and wait to start would not light up.. Engine rotates but no fire.. Sarted checking fuses and found a 30 amp mini blown. If my owners guide is right this feeds Fuel Heater, Wastegate Solenoid, and Injector Driver Module Relay Coil...? Tried another fuse-no luck fuse blows as soon as Ign. is turned on..I tried to isolate problem by disconnecting relays and solenoids and try fuse again, same thing.Rented a OBD scan tool in hopes it would diagnose the system or pull up a trouble code,nothing. "Vehicle Is Not Responding" is all it would tell me... Don't know what else to do... Can anyone help? I'm runnin low on fuses...... JD

Check the fuel heater, the element has a tendency to melt and short, that could be causing the fuse to blow, and without that fuse and the IDM the truck will not run.

did you check both batteries, just because they turn the engine over they may not have enough amps to start the system. I lost a battery this weekend and scan codes were going crazy but they all had one common thing- low volts. check the basics!

Not Sure If You Need This Reply .
Fuel Heater Plate Under Fuel Filter Shorted.
But That Doesn't Account For The Mini Fuse Blowing.
Make Sure. Look At Heater Plate And Check All Maxi Fuses [large Ones]
