This answer was rated:

2006 E350 stalled out driving home yesterday. tried to hook up odb2 scanner but it says no link. Cant hear the fuel pump engage. checked the fuel cut off switch, relays and fuses for the fuel pump. Sprayed starter fluid into the throttle body. still nothing. cranks over fine.
JA: How many miles are on the car? Has the car been starting normally?
Customer: 140,000 its been running fine. Stalled out with no reason
JA: Are you fixing your E350 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no


Check the left side of the engine for a wire rubbed through right next to the EGR tube. We see the engine harness rub through right there fairly often. It usually shorts out the PCM voltage feed or cuts the crank sensor signal.

If that's not the case then I would start pulling the connectors at the PCM and checking for signs of corrosion. Then plug them back in and see if anything changes on whether it will start or communicate with the scan tool.

Where is the pcm located, also do you know which fuses to check?

It could be any of these fuses:

The PCM is on the driver's side firewall- kind of next to the brake booster.

It was the 20amp fuse f1.23. Any idea what would cause it to go?

Either a just bad fuse, or the red wire running from the fuse box to the PCM rubbed through somewhere. That harness by the EGR valve is the most likely place.

Let me know if you need additional info.
