Exclamation 97 7.3L Powerstroke Wont start?

Im stuck I was backing into my drive a few days ago and My truck just shut off as if it was turned off, now my WTS light Wont come on and it just cranks and cranks with no Smoke coming out or anything really, checked all the Fuses... think it might not be Getting Fuel how do i check the High Pressure oil, someone told me that if i un-plugged the IPR valve and cranked it it would automaticly set at 750 and start cause the injectors activate at 500 is this something i can do?

Did you swap out fuse #22 with a known good one?


BTW you posted this in the wrong section.


EDIT: One thread is enough.

Maybe the IDM crapped out. Try to get it scanned and see what is going on.

Either replace it or check it with a meter. Don't just look at it to try and tell that it is good. If it is blown unplug the fuel heater on the drivers side of the filter housing and then try and start the truck.

No WTS is a BIG clue.

DO NOT just replace the fuse if it's blown. UNPLUG the fuel bowl heater first, since it's probably what blew the fuse, and if it's left plugged in, it'll just blow another fuse.
