Started by dying while driving but would restart did this for about an hour then died and will not start again. Check fuel pressure turn key on and get about 60lbs. Did notice that when the key is on the volt guage in the dash does not show anything. Must be electrical but where to start?

Hello !

Start checking all the fuses, on the dashboard and the mains under the hood, if checked good then check for spark on the sparkplugs after that comeback with the results and we start the troubleshooting.

Good Luck!

All fuses good. No fuel pressure. Checked voltage to fuses, All acc. Fuses had 12 volts, engine ign fuses only had.01 volts. I put a hot wire to one of the ign fuses putting power to the engine it started fine! Is it in the ignitigtion switch? That is my best guess!
Gotta get it runnig this is my boat puller and the crappie ars hitting!

Hello !

Fisherman also?

Thats good!

Well, turn "on" the ignition switch and check for voltage on the fuses, also be sure to check the main fuses under the hood! Sometimes looks good but they are not! "Jiggle" the ignition key a little bit and see if that change the reading.

If possible remove the cover on the steering column and identified the ignition wire (should be a (+) all the time an a accesories wire (+ when "on") and starter signal. You "nail" the problem pretty good (that s why you re a fisherman!)

let me Know and if you want I can pull out a wiring schematic for your truck!

Good luck!
