Hi David,
Yes the truck turns over. All the fuses are working. Checked the relays. No fuel getting to the engine. Do activity going to that dash.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
This is my landlords truck, I was suppose to replace the transmissions. But after sitting for 10 months, there where broken wire on the right front next to the wheel well. I fixed the wire and was hoping that was the only issue why the truck was not starting.
Now that I have the wire fixed and the spark is back still not starting.ThanksPatrick

can you here the fuel pump run for a few seconds when the key is in the run position?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Fuel pump is not turning on. There is power going to the pump. Normally I would assume its a bad fuel pump but because the dash is completely out, I'm thinking there might be another problem.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
it seem like the computer is not talking to the dash anymore.

the dash not working will not inhibit the fuel pump from working on your truck. you have multiple issues. i wil pull up a print to confirm this.

ok thanks! .... so its safe to say that the fuel pump is toast! Now about the dash not registering nothing.

so when you turn the key on you get no light? no check engine, no abs, nothing? no instruments lighting?

no lights, no abs, no instruments. nothing except the the 'P' lights up for park.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Cool! Thank you!

just for shits and gins, disconnect both battery terminals touch them together for about 15 seconds. reconnect. see if that helps with the lights.

No

check all the wiring in the engine bay again. inspect it thoroughly. there has to being a chewed through wire or 2. has to be. dont just look at the wiring. feel it all the around the wiring. pay particular attention to were any wiring goes under the plenum or down the side.

Hi Dave I need ur help again... Truck still doesn't start but now all wires are fixed and replaced, I can talk to the computer now.. No power going to the fuel pump. The wires that goes to the fuel pump come from the fuel pump control. I have power going to the fuel pump control (only 1 wire hot when key on ON) but nothing coming out of it. Is there something I need to look out for? I'm pretty sure the part is bad but I wasn't sure there need to be more then 1 wire hot....Thanks *****

ok. give me a moment.
