Do you have extra fuses or places left over for fuses to go once you removed and re installed the fuses?

Would you be willing to speak on the phone?

I'm in Ft lauderdale and I have a hurricane coming I need to get this truck started if possible. I don't have extra fuses but I can borrow a fuse from another device.

Can u tell me which fuse or relay could cause the truck not to fire?
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 1 month ago.

Just about any of them.

That's not true at all. Are u a real mechanic?
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 1 month ago.

There are a few ways we can pinpoint the problem.

First, I would recommend to start by checking all of the fuses to ensure they are inserted properly into place.

Next, I can send over a fuse lay out or chart that will identify each fuse and its location.

Or would could start from scratch and diagnose this condition by checking for spark and fuel while cranking
