Does the engine crank over and not start? How long was the drive to the store and how long was it sitting before trying to start the engine?
My apologies. I went back to store to get my truck that evening (10/22/09), turned the key, heard the fuel pump pressurize the system, and it started up. Today (10/23/09) I got in the truck at home, turned the key but did not hear the whirr of the fuel pump and the truck did not start
It could be any part of the starting/charging system. The place to start is the battery and go from there.
