7.3L died at Mcdonalds

I was at the drive up window and my truck just stoped. It has always drove just fine. It says it has a 1/4 tank, and my check gauge and battery light is on. This is my work truck so I am losing money every day it sits, please help me.

When you crank it does the tach move? Possible CPS?

the tach doesnt move at all. Would a CPS make the truck just stop running like that?

I'm not 100% sure its your CPS, but it sounds like it. Its a $30 part, takes a 10mm wrench to change, and about 5 minutes to do... They have been known to fail at anytime, anywhere, and if you don't carry a spare can leave you stranded. Even if its more serious than a CPS your not out much for replacing it. Good luck!
