Will it stay running if you feather the gas pedal? Was it doing the same thing before you replaced the parts? How many miles is on it? And has it sat un driven for a while?

No it would not crank at all before replacing parts. No it will not stay running if I feather the gas pedal. It has sat for about sixty days saving up money foe parts. Does it sound like an (BCM)? Owner also informs me the gas gauge doesnt work, fan stopped working and horn doesn't blow. I'm womdering about the BCM?

Check your crank sensor .they don't necessarily go out all at once ,but can take a few days to fully be inoperable.It can also be a fuel filter getting clogged up
