Engine died at 70mph wont start

I was on the interstate doing 70mph when my engine died, reved once as i was pulling it to the side of the road then nothing. engine cranks but wont fire. I checked fuel filter, replaced it anyway. pulled codes with a friends programmer, current codes were P1249, P1670, P1316, and P0340 not sure if any of the codes are the problem but there they are. (yes i know what each code is) before this it was starting hard, and would blow white smoke on cold days. seems i have a problem with my glow plug relay as well. a volt meter reads no voltage on it. would this prevent my engine from starting?

specs:
2001 f350
7.3 powerstroke
no mods that i am aware of.

Smile dead rig

I dont know your exact problem but it sure sounds like a bad cam shaft position sensor

Check all fuses. Does the wait to start light come on? Do the RPM's move while cranking?

died at 70...

Well the tach does move when i try to start it, replaced the camshaft position sensor again, checked all the connections to the IDM everything looks good. but it still wont start, turns over but will not fire. I have dealt with the P0340 code "camshaft sensor". The "P1249 wastegate fail steady state test" won't keep me from starting. and the P1316 IDM code not sure what else to do there should i replace the IDM? what is a
"P1670 EF feedback signal not detected" ? oh and yes all fuses look good

I would go and get a $20 cam sensor and change that. It is giving you a cam sensor code after all..

I too had a problem with my glow plug relay and was blowing white smoke and having a heck of a time starting (even in relatively warm weather). I replaced the relay and it starts like a champ without any smoke or stating issues at all. While that doesn't explain the engine dying while driving, I definitely think a new GPR will fix your starting issue (or at least reduce any compounding issues).
