Truck won't start/ wts light does not come on

Any help would be greatly appreciated! '00 7.3 PSD, stock except for cold air intake.

Truck cranks strong but does not start. WTS light not lighting. I saw some other threads concerning this same kind of symptom that was caused by the fuel bowl heater short. Checked maxi fuses and they are ok. Any idea's where to check next? Thank you in advance!

I'd look to see if the check engine light is not coming on as well. If not then your PCM is shut down (also controls WTS light). If the PCM is shut down check the mini fuses. Issues I've seen along with shorted fuel heaters are wiring to the IPR shorted together or to ground. Also one of the engine sensors could be shorting the reference voltage internally.
