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!

you can get it done at the stealership for free. But they "NEED THE TRUCK ALL DAY" so take everything that can play with out. It dhould only take a few minutes. They foudn $3K worth of stuff "that HAS to be replaced" I hate those a$$h0l3s.
