Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved. There is a large 175 amp fuse under hood which is probably blown. It is in a fuse holder to the right of radiator, here is a picture. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions. Thanks.

my truck cranks over but no start. i locateted that fuse would that make it not start and still crank over?
Expert:  Dan replied 2 years ago.
Yes because starter has a separate fuse. Let me know if fuse is blown, thanks.

I had replaced all the positive terminals, replaced computer, starter, 175 amp fuse. And all of my fuses are good. Replaced crank sensor coil, wires and spark plugs. I tried cranking it and nothing. I sprayed starting fluid in intake nothing still no spark. Compression test is good. Any other ideas?
