Navistar/ih 4300: i have a 2002 ih with a dt466it has been

Customer Question

i have a 2002 ih with a dt466
it has been sitting for over a year. I tried to jump start but could not-starter just clicked
I put in freshly charged batteries in and when I push the clutch in, the dash comes alive before I turn the key.
if i turn the key, the system does it's self test but when I go to start position, nothing happens
I went under truck--left key in on position and jumped from battery cable to start solenoid
the engine cranks but will not start--I sprayed a little starting fluid in air intake and then jumped it again.
the engine ran until the starting fluid was used.--a few seconds
when I jump the starter solenoid and crank it, I get white smoke out of the exhaust
last thing--I noticed that the odometer has zero miles showing
about 6 months before it was shut down, it had new injectors installed then it developed some shut down issues so a new injector harness was installed--no problems after that .
I parked the truck and now I want to reactivate it I have this start issue

Hi there ! My name is ***** ***** I would like to try and help if I can ! Can you tell me if the warn engine lamp comes on and goes out at key on ? Also please check the fuses sitting on top of the batteries . There are inline in little holders and they are for the ECM clean power feed . If the fuses are loose inside , they waill cause intermittent connection and possible no start like what you are experiencing !

Perhaps the ECM is not powering up

What is the test for ecm power
Expert:  Andy replied 2 years ago.
Load test at the CEC relay in the power distribution box located on the left front fender. Load test using a headlight on pin 30 to see if light comes on bright . This power comes from the batteries through that ECM fuse .

Where is the ecm fuse so I can check it
Expert:  Andy replied 1 year ago.
The ECM has its own clean power feed harness that goes straight to the batteries. There is an inline fuse holder and we need to make sure that use is in snug. Try reseating it.
