May be your ASD relay. Auto Shut Down relay. Try swapping the ASD with the ABS relay. See if it fires up then. Post back with results....


No it was not the auto shutdown. I was watching this video on YouTube this guy had one that did the same thing mine was doing. There's three red wires that run into one wire. And his came apart. And I knew it had something to do at the electrical. So I took my wiring harness apart the casing off of it underneath the fuse box that runs into the cab there was a three red wires with the onecoming out of it. There were three blue wires that ran in the two wires. Those wires it came apart. They have something to do with the fuel pump in your spark. I took the corrosion off the wires put them back together. It fired right up!!

That's the wiring harness that runs out of the fuse box underneath the hood


Nice! Glad you got it!
