Check your battery and all electrical components first to see if you can get it started to take to your local mechanic. If not, then you'll have to call for a tow. It can be many issues causing this and not something easily fixed.

Did the check engine light come on before the truck quit? If so there's a code stored in your computer (PCM). Using a scan tool pull the code & go from there. Having the DTC (digital trouble code) will point you, or your mechanic, in the right direction. HTH. -Jim

Since it is a 2002 there is an on board reader to get the code. Turn the ignition key to on with out starting 3 times leaving it on on potition and the code will appear where the odometer is. Then go to this site to see what the code means: http://www.wjjeeps.com/faultcodes.htm
