2000 F250 7.3L No start/start/dies

OK Here is a commonly asked problem/question.
Problem: Driving on Super Bowl Sunday morning 1 mile down the road to get newspaper and truck died just like shuttin off ignition switch ( I didn't). Crank, Crank, Crank....no start. Wait 2 minutes crank and it starts for 3-5 seconds. Crank and no start.Left in middle of rural dirt road to get tow vehicle.30 minutes later came back. Crank, started, drove 1/2 mile down road, died again, no restart. Towed home.

Hooked up scan tool...no codes. No check engine light.

Tried starting again 2 hours later. It started up and ran for 3-5 minutes at idle and 1500-2000 rpm then died. No restart.

Scanned again for codes. No codes.

Checked fuel filter bowl...full of fuel.Drained it twice. Heard fuel pump running the stop after 10-15 seconds to fill bowl again.
Still no start.
ANY BODY HAVE ANY IDEAS??? I DONT CARE ABOUT SUPERBOWL NOW!

does your tach move when cranking?? if not, your CPS may be dead or you have a dead fuse (fuse #22 is the most common)

if the wait to start light doesn't come on and your tach doesn't move, mostly likely the fuse i just mention.

have you installed any chips?? if so, check the connection of whatever chips you have.

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

CPS failure

From what I have read on this site, it sounds like a CPS failure. Ford has a recall and will replace for free.

Here is more info. NO tach movement upon cranking. Also if it sits for 2 hours it will start and run for 5 minutes/warm up, then dies.
I think that fuse is OK...the "wait to start light ' comes on. I'm leaning towards cam sensor...even with no trouble codes.
