Have you tried bleeding the fuel system and verified you have good fuel supply? I would start there and also let me know if there is signs of smoke while cranking indicating it is getting fuel.

Test for power to the starter signal wire to engage the starter and if there is power there but not response from the starter it will be a starter issue but if there is not power there it is an ignition circuit or controller problem

Would you not be able to get a test light or volt meter from a Wal mart or auto parts store?

It is a company truck under warranty.I was trying to avoid a trip to a dealer.Thought maybe a quick reset would do it.Guess not.
Technician: Daniel Wilson,
 replied 8 months ago

Okay, Thanks for the update. Yes, this would be a warranty claim.
