OK, first - what are you scanning the truck with? Your IDM isn't bad if you have no codes BUT, you need the right scanner. It takes a special scanner to retrieve those codes and the Genreric OBD-II scanners like the Auto Parts stores use don't do us much good.

Next the IPR regulates the HP-oil that drives the injectors, you should see oil there. Lets start with some No Start basics;

WTS Light? - do you get it when you first roll-on the key?

Tach Movement? - does the tach needle move up slightly when cranking?*

Fuel - pump runs? Fuel refilling filter housing? Tank below 1/4?

Is it cranking fast enough? - it won't even TRY to start if cranking too slowly.

Is your truck "chipped"? If so, remove it as a Test.

*(because your truck is an '01, this may or may not apply to you. Here's how you'll know, IF your Instrument Cluster contains a Trans Temp Gauge the cluster no longer shows cranking rpm on the Tach. IF you DO NOT have that gauge, you SHOULD see the tach needle move up slightly as it turns on the starter. This is a test of the CPS)

Also, you could try disconnecting the plug on the ICP sensor to set a default value for the IPR to run with. Did you check the plug and sheet metal nut going to the IPR? That nut can vibrate off and allow the solenoid going over the valve to slide around. The wires going to the IPR can get brittle, crack, and short together. Make sure the plug & wires look in good shape.

Hopefully, that Snap-On should give you some answers. What's usually called for, when you suspect an IDM, is what's called a "Buzz Test" and will force the IDM you resolve further codes from the result. Half the time it's the UVCH connections (that go through the Valve Cover Gasket to the Injectors and Glow Plugs) are the reason for a failed Buzz Test too...

Already posted this in the thread you put in the wrong place.

From the number of no or hard start threads that have been posted lately there is a lot of this going around. How does buzz test sound? Have you scanned it with AE or similar scan tool? I am having such a problem and I am leaning towards at least a couple of weak injectors. You need more information. I have scanned mine with a snap on scanner but I also have a AE program on the way to help with my trucks woes. Do a search, you can get a good idea of some things to look at or check. Good luck.
