Good morning,

To clarify, you had the A/F fuse out to perform some repairs and forgot to put it back in before trying to start it right?

Does it crank but not start or does it do nothing at all?

the A/F fuse and EFI were out I tried to start it had for got they were out. I put back in now it only turns over the 4hi and 4 low lights flash on dash

Have you tried a hard reset of the PCM? Sometimes incomplete voltage signals can throw the PCM in a loop and make it not want to run.

You might try a reboot:

With they key off and out of the vehicle and all windows rolled up pull both battery cables.

Touch the battery cables together for about 1 minute.

Hook the battery cables up like normal.

Try to start the truck.

I just seen windows were down should I do it again?
Toyota Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

No, but sometimes the windows will need to be reset if you do the reboot with them down.

So at this point you need to determine if you are getting spark and fuel injector pulse.

What was being repaired when you pulled the fuses?

Well I found a 30 amp fuse blown and it starts
Toyota Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

Well alright! I'm glad you got it running again. Which fuse blew? Any idea what caused it?
