Symptom: Intermittent will not start. Cranks but no fuel (No gas smell out of the pipe). As far as PATS goes the theft light goes out after the initial turn on sequence. Never blinks with the ignition in the "on" position even after a failed start. Theft light will blink when the the key is in the off position though but very dimly about once every sec. Theft light will stop after I lock the truck with the remote. Theft light will resume blinking after unlocking with the remote. Sometimes starts sometimes not.
The dimly blinking might be key here. I have pulled the PCM diode and fuse and have seen what a theft light should look like. This is not my blinking condition. Half as bright blinking is occurring, kind of like passing a hot wire over a light bulb lead for a sec thing. Just enough to light it...
Check to see if your emergency gas shut off needs resetting, lower right passenger side fuse panel, check your manual for proper location, then do a reset. Hope this helped?
