also, there were no trouble codes when we tried to find one, and the computer was tried on another truck and worked. we thought it might have been the computer, but it worked fine....waiting to see if the relays fixed it. the dang thing ran just fine three days ago, but the weather was really hot and maybe something got cooked? *sigh*

Did you take a meter and trace the primary ignition from the coil backwards?
