After Fueling (?) 2000 Ex 7.3L won't start
Low fuel light was on for about 20 miles. Yea, I know I'm an idiot, but I'm a broke idiot as well.
I made a few stops before fueling, and it started right up as usual. The first time I stopped it after fueling, was when the "fun" began.
Put in key, turn to start, all normal dash lights come on, theft light is blinking normally (slow), and nothing... Can hear some clicking from the drivers side, engine compartment, firewall fusebox, and a brief whirring (motor sound) from in front of the drivers side battery (is that where the fuel pump is?).
Electrical is okay as far as I can tell, but fuel pump is not doing it's normal ~30 second pre start pump.
Opened fuel filter can, and it was full. I then drained it
1. Disconnected the negative cables (hoping for a reboot), and cleaned them up, to no avail...
2.Tried the fuel shutoff switch on passenger side, to no avail...
3.Tried two different, newer sets of ignition keys, to no avail...
What is my next plan of attack?
Maybe the fuel pump fuse, or pump itself ??
Thanks for any help,
