Truck Died Need HELP!!!

Ok, here it goes to start with I have installed a switch in the dash to run the glow plug relay because the computer won't turn them on. Today after work about 5 degrees outside I get in and hit the glowplug switch for about 20 seconds or so and start the truck, it starts up fine all seems to be ok. So I cycle the glowplug switch a couple times to help it keep running smooth about the third time of hittng the switch when I let of the switch at that very second the motor kills and won't restart. So to make a long story short I get a buddy to pull it to my house and we put it in the garage. I normally can hear the fuel pump on the frame rail run when I turn the key on but I can't hear that so I checked the fuses and they are fine so I checked power at the pump and there wasn't any so I am not sure where to go from here any ideas??

unplug the fuel heater and see if that helps.....recheck your fuses...the under dash ones too if you have them....

Fuel Heater is on the filter housing right. Not sure which plug it is.

Well I checked for power at the fuel pump again and there isn't any, I checked all the fuses and they all ohm out good but the fuse block under the hood mini fuse 1 and 3 have no power on them even when the key is on. Is this normal also could there be a relay that is bad. I can't find my owners manual so I don't know which ones to check, can any tell me which number fuses and relays are for the fuel system. Thanks

I found my Chiltons manual finally and I was reading in there and it refers to a fuel pressure regulator on the filter housing. Is it possible that this sensor has gone bad and simply shut the fuel pump off??

I was talking to my local dealer when it first happened and the parts dept told me that there is 2 fuel pumps on the 01's one in the tank and one on the frame rail. Is there any truth to that cause I can't find any reference to it in the Chiltons manual.
