Wait to start light stays on, Won't start

I'm helping a friend with his 02 F-250 Superduty 7.3L

The truck sat for 6 months and rats chewed the wiring. I repaired the wiring and the truck started up but the accelerator pedal would not work. I got a used pedal and the truck won't start anymore and the "Wait to start" light will not go off. Plugged old pedal back in and same thing.

Replaced the Glow plug relay, btw

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Hodges87

First realize that the WTS light has Nothing to do with the GlowPlug system, it's just a dumb timer.

What it IS telling you about is the functioning of the PCM. If it doesn't go out in 10-15secs it's an indication you have a problem there. Do you have any Tuning or a Chip in the computer? If so, start there and remove it.

I'd think something's going-on with the PCM then....

It's either confused (maybe reboot it by removing the 4 battery cables and holding the + & - together on one of them for 20 secs) or you still have a wiring problem some where.

Keeping the WTS on all the time? I don't think so (no matter if you're talking about the IDM, ICP, or Anything other than the PCM as far as devices go...)
