Engine Cranks but will Not Start - Diesel on Ford F-350 Super Duty

If the engine cranks but will not start, this may be caused by damaged wiring to the high pressure fuel pump. Wiring to the pump can be chafed, which causes the pump to stop working. The chafed wires will need to be accessed and repaired.

The truck just stopped and it will crank but wont start we were thinking it could be the high pressure fuel pump but not sure how to test this ourselves
just died in the parking lot, to find out wires were chaffed from factory and needless to say this factory problem cost me $2500, go figure, way to go ford.
Was driving and low fuel pressure came across the screen and decrease engine. Then it died. Tried to crank the engine over but would not fire.
