check #30 fuse - fuel bowl heater could take it out - mine did, just disconnected the heater, replace fuse and no problems

might be your crank position sensor. prone to go out,. will cause no start.

Ok I replaced the no 30 fuse it was blown. Put another in and wait to start light came back on and then it blew. Which plug is the fuel bowl heater? There is one higher than the other and its got a white plug in and the other below it is black. The white one goes into the fuel bowl it seems

its attached directly to the fuel bowl. Drivers side of the fuel bowl at the bottom of it. Unplug one item. Replace fuse. If you got it right it wont blow again.

Found it unplugged it put another fuse from flashers to see if it would blow and it didn't. Wait to start light came on would not crank. Tried turning key off and back on. Wait to start light did not come back on. And no crank. I came from the straight 6 diesel and had no problems and 430000 miles when I traded it and this truck let's me sit on the side of the road quite often. Getting a little preturbed about it

hmmmmm....well, unless the pins on the connector you took loose are somehow grounding against the block or something, it looks as if you have another issue.

you did replace with a 30 amp fuse right? just checking. not trying to be smart.

I really dont know what else connects to that fuse besides PCM. its got to be something stupidly simple because it just happenned. Maybe someone else can chime in on here and let you know something.
