help crank but no start

Help cranks good, won't start. Good fuel pressure, no blown fuses, neutral switch ok, no loose connections. Truck is a 2003 with a 6.0 diesel. Thanks for the help. Maybe a bad ficm?

Any ideas? Other than being a typical 6.0.

Not sure exactly what you mean, but if you're talking about the glowplug light, everything cycles normally. More detail, drove to greenville about an hour away. Everything normal. Parked at best buy, went to leave, no response cranks good. Good oil pressure

Have you tried disconnecting the plug for the fan. I know it sounds stupid, but I had a friend of mine with an early 04 that broke down at work. I called the diesel shop owner that my son works for. That was the first thing he had me check. he said it was a common problem with the 03/04 6.0. the fan shorts and will cause a no start.... He just had me unplug it.... Well, that wasn't his problem, it ended up being the puter... Just a thought though...

Almost forgot, the plug is on the drivers side towards the front of the motor, you will see it is pretty easy to find...

Cranking icp 1800 psi, ipr 87%, ficm power 48 volts, my only question is when you have a hpop leak will these numbers change? What about when your ficm gives out.
