Hello, does the check engine light come on when the key is turned to on and go out when cranking? Have you checked the fuel pump inertia switch in the truck for being popped? Do you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail and spark? Have you checked all fuses in the underhood fuse panel and interior fuse panel? This problem just started, you went out and crank no start?

Yeah it just started I had a heater core put in and thermostat replaced after the radiator was flushed and when I turn over everything comes on but my seats And windows don't work

Ok so since it started after replacing the heater core I would suspect the issue to be in the area the recent work was completed if this is the case of it not running after it was replaced. Loose or missing ground/connection.

The whole dash is out for this type of repair, so a number of electrical connectors are disconnected on both sides of the dash for this type of repair

You don't think it could be a blown fuse or relay since the windows or seats don't work?
Expert:  HDGene replied 1 year ago.

All the wiring that controls the windows and seats run from the instrument panel, if a ground was left loose or connector left disconnected would be what I would think to check first since it wont start either. A blown fuse is possible which is easy to check the under hood fuse panel and interior fuse panel. But id double check the work that was just done as well
