    OBS wont start and I'm totally stumped

    The truck has been dead for a few weeks because I have not had a lot of time to look at it.

    WTS light comes on, tach moves, and a new GPR.

    I am not getting any signs of the injectors firing. Nothing coming from the tailpipe like unburned fuel or smoke. A buzz test was ran and all 8 injectors are buzzing and sound great, but the App states IDM failure. I dont get that at all....

    IPR duty cycle at start up hits 70% but I only show .25V ICP. I unplugged the ICP sensor and I get the same readings. Fuel bowl is full of fuel.

    Could the IDM be bad if the injectors buzz? I'm totally stumped.

    In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the anti-American sentiment and negativity, we should remember England 's Prime Minister Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America , he said:
    "A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in... And how many want out." Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

    2. The American G. I.
    One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    Here is a photo of a wire I found that was not connected. I could not see where it was meant to go. Any ideas?

    No. I haven't had time to look into the issue for over 2 weeks.
