99 250 Cranks wont fire

I have a 99 250 123k miles. Evolution CTS programmer . Started truck up yesterday went in the house to let it warm up And when I came back out it wasn't running. When you turn the key off and back on the wait yo start does not cone on and the overdrive light on the shifter stays in the off position. The evolution says it can not communicate with the pcm. I have s call into evolution but was hoping someone here might have an idea what has went wrong..

OK First, you're posting in the "911 Body" Forum and Really gonna limit the number of people who are going to read your post (Go to the 7.3 General or Motor Problems Forum)

BUT, here's what's most likely happened (as it does this time of year).

Your Fuel Heater was activated and it has rotted-thru over the Summer. This blew Fuse #30 which also feeds the PCM. When you have no WTS Light it's a good indication the PCM isn't running and you're Never gonna start until you get it back.

So, what you want to do is to UnPlug the Fuel Heater at the bottom of the Fuel Bowl (you actually don't need this thing at all, so no rush in replacing it). Then replace the fuse and chances are your light comes back on...
