My starter will not turn when I go to start my truck after driving it unless I reset my pcm. Also my fuel and volt gauge will not work either. Do I have a ground issue or a faulty pcm

If a pro h asn;'t scanned this then the scanner you are using will not pick these codes up. Most auto parts scanners will only pick up engine and transmission codes. Some others at auto parts will pick up abs as well but none of the the other many modules that are installed on a vehicle. Your starter circuit goes through the integrated power module and if it won't send a signal to pcm like the anti theft circuit the truck will not start. Regardless if you didn't supposedly pay for anti theft on your vehicle it has it on it. So try to reset if no manual look online. This needs a pro to scan it to see what is wrong

Then check the asd relay under hood it may be doing this have you even tried to reset security system even though you say you dont' have it? And It should be scanned by a pro anyhow to see if the power module is effecting this. I can't get into my manual to check the wiring out and will give a reply as soon as I can on this.

Your manual may be wrong or there was a change to it and ours is correct or someone who has had the problem puts it in our tips page

Ok I was wrong looking at the wrong relay. Swapped it out no difference. Did I mention my first time all this happened. The night before my headlights would dim and the radio would flicker along with other warning lights on the dash
