Okay, maybe I should have done this from the beginning. So let me fill you in on how I got to where I am with my truck.
So a few weeks ago my instrument cluster had stopped working. I was able to make it start working again by smacking the dashboard. About a week after that it had stopped again but this time I had to take the dash apart and as soon as I started to unplug the connection it started working again. Then it happened a third and final time. During this disassembly I checked all fuses and power and ground to the cluster but everything was fine with all of that. When this happened the only thing that continues to work in my cluster is the backlighting, turn signals and the check engine light. All gauges the shift indicator and the mileage indicator stop working.
When I took everything apart this time I started the truck turned it around for better access to my tools and proceeded to check everything out. But when I put everything back together and tried to start my truck it would only crank over, I had no spark on all 8 cylinders.
So I went about checking all of my fuses again inside the cab and the engine compartment which again all was good. So I've been at this dilemma for a few weeks now. Going thru everything that I could possibly think of and research on.
I have checked power and ground to almost every connection that there is on almost every sensor that there is on the engine (with only a test light). I have not been able to run a DMM on it not being able to successfully have someone crank the motor at times that I've needed so that I could check for pulse or anything. I have looked inside the dash panel to see if maybe there was a wire that may have been pinched or something and all of that looks ok. Now when I have checked the power and grounds at the sensors I also checked it and where it connects to it's ground point's. Since all was good I never checked in between connections and ground point's because since it was good at at the ends I figured that there would no bad spot in between.
During all of the diagnosis I hooked up a code reader and had a p0300 random misfire which I had been fighting for a couple months now. Even after I had done a wire and plug tune up I had the code again. But I also had a new code jump up this time which was a p0332 knock sensor 2. Since then I cleared the codes because I removed the battery to charge it. When I put the battery back in and tried to start it again I now keep getting a p0335 crankshaft positioning sensor. Which I had replaced because with the knowledge that I do have and the research that I've done that was what was leading to the no spark issue. But no good luck on my side.
The motor is still cranking over good but still has no spark. I have good fuel but do not know exact pressure reading without a pressure gauge. The motor is the 6.0l vortec and it's sitting inside the 2003 GMC Sierra 2500hd 4x4 extended cab. I'm pretty stumped on it now and really wondering what else to do or where else to look. Can you please help me and lead in a good direction to look so that that I can get my wheels back in the mud.
Again thank you very much in advance for your advice and information. Sorry for the long story about this situation but I thought it would be best to bring you completely up to speed with my truck so that you would have enough details to help.
