6.0 died while driving, then its cranks with no start. No check engine light, not throwing any codes. I had my muffler and cat cut off earlier today. This happened about an hour after I picked up. We replaced the fuel filter, that's not it. The fuel pump is working. Help?

the computer does anything make a sound when you cycle the key? I am not very smart with 6.0's but just a idea

dunno, new computer? I heard of this happening before on vehicles. A friend of mine had exhaust work on a gasser and they didn't unhook the batterys and it trashed a coil pack in his truck. Alot of people don't unhook the batterys when they are welding, but I always wanted to be safe than sorry, only takes a few minutes

Planning on going to walmart to do that. It was my next step. I just find it bizarre that it just died going down the road.

when a cps goes out it usally happens going down the road. This really sounds like a cps to me, I never heard of it in a six 0 but anything can happen. Go to the auto store tommorw and get one and put it in. It's worth a try
