Truck won't start

I have a huge problem that just occurred, my ECM somehow comes disconnected?
My wait to start light won't come on and my edge won't hook up says ECM cannot be found or something like that, truck will just crank won't start
This is super annoying, it did it once Friday and I kinda just moved the ECM around but now I can't get it to do that

First thing to check, especially as it's getting colder, is Fuse #30 (really check them All, it's Much more common to be a fuse rather than the PCM itself). If blown you'll have to unplug the Fuel Heater Element (at the bottom of the Filter Housing) or it will just blow again.

What happens is, over the Summer, that element rots & shorts and the first time the PCM activates it it blows the fuse and kills itself

Have a look, double check your fuses carefully. Also, what yr is your truck? (you should Always post that when asking) I say #30 based on you posting in the right forum...
