The relay is next to your fuel bowl but I don't think thats you problem the wts is fed from the pcm on it's own it sounds like you pcm is not getting power I would re check your fuses to start

How are you checking fuses?

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

Correct there is a big plug and a black cover on the fire wall down in the rigght corner if your standing in front of the truck looking at the brake booster you pull the 1 bolt in the center of the plug 10mm I think remove the plug and there are 2 more bolts on the cover the ecm will slide out I think you may have to loosen the inter finder but I can't rember for sure
