Check all of your fuses to make sure they are good and have power when they are supposed to. You may have another wire damaged that you did not see. Also, make sure you have spark and fuel pressure. If one or the other is missing find out why and repair that.

check your oil there is a safety of the 4.3 that will not allow it to start if oil is too low
