Another stalled F350

I am out in the middle of nowhere on a job site. I got about .5 mile from location and the truck just stalled out. It did throw codes, 2 pop up when under full load. P1213 IIRC (injector pressure to low/high). I planned on addressing this when I finish up here next week.

The other it throw I unfortunately don't remember, and accidentally cleared. I pulled these codes on my Edge CTS. To my knowledge the truck is stock. I am having a CPS brought in from the nearest town (60+ miles), and hoping I am just one of many to have it crap out in the worst place.

I did notice the following while trying to quickly trouble shoot
-While cranking, tach barely moves
-Oil pressure reads normal while cranking
-CTS shows the RPM's are only spinning to 173 when cranking
-CTS shows injector duty cycle over 50% when cranking

Note: the oil/transfer case were changed 4 days ago, fuel filter changed 3 days ago.

I am going to pull the #9 fuse, incase there is a tune on it, so the computer will reset. Will also inspect the ICP for any oil around sensor.

Hoping I can get it back up and running out here, otherwise I have to tow it to the only person I trust to work on my vehicles...10 hours away.

Replaced CPS (grey one from parts store), and no change. Still cranks, and the tach barely moves. Possibly a bad CPS? Also unplugged the ICP and still nothing.

Leaving my job site Tuesday to take it down to a shop. Anything else I can check with minimal tools, and no access to parts?

Edit: Also noticed the Wait To Start light now didn't come on the last few start attempts. Was it just from them being up to temp from the previous tries? Tried cranking it 6 times in a 10 min period. The last 2 times it didn't come on.

I will do that. Been dealing with some hellacious winds on top of cold weather. Any specific ones I should target?

I'm not sure, but I want to say #19 and #22, but check all of them. If you find one blown, check what it goes to, it sounds like you may have a bad fuel bowl heater, it's the same fuse as the PCM. If you have no WTS light,t hat means the PCM is not getting power, or dead.

If the fuel bowl heater fuse is blown, unplug the heater, then replace the fuse. If the WTS light comes on, Bingo. Your RPM's seem a touch low, too. Might want to check the batteries/connections, if you can.

Checked the fuses and found #16 blown, it's a 30amp. Swapped in the other 30amp from another slot and no change. Going to search for a fuse box layout to see what they all are.

Under dash, found fuse #30 blown. PCM power relay. Might be making a little progress here.

Yup... un-plug the fuel bowl "heater plug:"



Replace the fuses, and try again.

Funny you say that. I noticed while doing the CPS that the fuel bowl heater, and the rubber hose line right next to it were undone. I reconnected both. Forgot about that until you mentioned it.
I can see about getting a fuse brought to me in the morning.
So am I wanting these unplugged then?

You want the Fuel Bowl Heater unplugged, then try to start it. Make sure you know all your fuses are in/good, and when you turn the key on check for the WTS light.

It will not start with the CPS unplugged.

What vacuum line are you referring to?
