motor just stopped

I just left for work and on the way the motor just stopped running as if I turned off the key. It turns over but will not start. The only difference i notice is the Wait to Start light does not come on when I turn the key on. Any ideas would be great as I am stuck on the side of the road. Thanks

Sure your fuel heater in the bottom of the filter housing is shorted and has blown fuse #30 which also supplies the PCM.

Replace the fuse, unplug the heater, and you're good-to-go! You can then choose to either replace that heater element or just leave it unplugged as Many do. I doubt you'd miss it

edit: I just notices you're an early '99, might be #22 under the hood for you...

It might also be something as simple as your chip has come lose. Mine did the same thing a while back.

In any case the lack of a WTS light in an indication your computer isn't running...

A fuse, or a bad connection to your chip (thx Mike ), is the most likely problem.

Smile

you were 100% correct. #30 fuse blown. I did as you said and was back on the road. Saved a half days pay. Thanks so much. This is why I love this site so much. Thanks again, Chris.
