Abruptly died, won't re start

Howdy guys..have a new issue with my truck.
early 99 f250 7.3

I was driving yesterday, truck had been running approx. 3mins, when it stalls out and dies. No loud noise or dash lights flickered, just abruptly loses all power.
It tries to crank but just won't start, motor doesn't sound bad when it tries to turn over. Just out of hope the camshaft positioning sensor was replaced, but didn't help any.

The wait to start light will NOT come on, which is very unusual.

Within the last 3 months the truck has gotten a new alternator, new battery's, Air Dog, and an Adrenaline HPOP.

Any help would be appreciated!

OK, if you've got no WTS, your PCM isn't running. Most likely a fuse (especially #30-22-19, but check 'em All...) and most likely the fuse that controls your fuel heater in the Filter bowl.

Unplug that heater in the bottom if it turns-out to be the case or it will just blow again.....

Not sure if you have a chip but i had a similar issue not to long ago and remebered reading on here about how we should tape our chips into the computer because they tend to loosen with vibration. Should the chip dislodge itself with even just the key in the ignition you can destroy your computer. Well i was stuck in the parking lot at work with no wait to start, so i took the key out gave it a couple minutes for good measure, reached under dash and sure enough chip was almost completey out. Pushed it back in, put key in ignition, and all was fine. Needless to say chip is now tapped in, with alot of tape. I guess the diesel gods were smiling on me.

Same thing happened to me last night with my 99 F250 7.3. Engine cutoff and when I tried to restart it, I had no WTS light and I didn't hear the fuel pump.
Are those fuses in the engine compartment or inside the cab? Can you point me to any kind of fuse diagram? I just bought the truck a month ago and I don't have the manuals.

Seems to be a common problem. Happened to me on the top of a bridge. It was definatley fuse 30 under the dash. It's the only 30 amp fuse under there.
