Customer Question
The truck started fine this...
The truck started fine this morning. The engine brake wasn't working so we pulled a few fuses to see if that was the problem and now it won't start after we put the fuses back in. Any suggestions?

Does the yellow check engine light come on when the key is turned to the on position?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
no
Technician: Cat Man, Cat Engine Expert replied 11 months ago
Thanks for the information.
It should come on every time the key is turned on. When it does not. There are only two reasons why.
First is no power to the ecm.
Second is the ecm has failed.
Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.
