Need some help won't start.

I went out today to start my truck before work. Turned the key on and waited to the wait to start lite to go out. It started and ran for about a minute then started running rough and died. First time this has ever happened. SO I cycled the key and no wait to start lite came on. I did this a couple of times before I tried to start it and still no lite. So I tried to start it and it just cranks and cranks. Hoping maybe you guys could help me out. It's cold out and it won't fit in my garage. I am thinking GPR but don't want to just start throwing parts at it.

If the fuel heater shorts out it pops the number 30 fuse which is also the computer. It wont start. Most likely if no wts light

the way you described it is it ran ruff then died. Now it just cranks? If its that fuse, it wont run at all. MAybe it was shorting out causing eratic current before, the fuse popped?
If it is the relay, just jump the two large terminals together for about 30 seconds. then try to start it.
The cps also can cause similar issues. Along with lots of others but these have been common lately

No WTS light means that fuse blew. Unplug your fuel bowl heater (white plug with 2 wires going to it on the back of the fuel bowl), replace the fuse, and fire it up.

I hope so. I will check it out. It is sitting in about a 3 foot drift now. I have a feild behind my house (west side) and it gets burried over night.
