Default help , I need to get out of town.

I just picked up my truck from getting two engine check valves replaced that were causing the wvo to get pumped into the diesel fuel tank. Now even after driving the truck for an hr the system would not turn on. even on manual. Then when I turned off the truck and it was on manual the light comes on and stays on. I start the truck and the light goes out. I try it on auto and nothing. Light never comes on. I checked all of the fuses and they are fine. It worked while I was driving it to the shop. I did notice some time ago that it was taking longer than normal to switch on. Even when I switched it while it was hot. Anyone have any ideas? I need to get out of town like now.
I appreciate any help

The light comes on in manual, but does the system switch to veg?

Is this a 6.0 or a 7.3?

I am in AZ. No it doesn't switch on just the light comes on. Light stays on when the ignition switch is off and will stay on till it startes then shuts off. Strange huh? When I was checking the fuses I noticed after putting one of them back in the there wasn't a wire coming out on the top left fuse. there was a wire coming out of the one below it so I switched the fuse to that one. I looked in the manual and that is how it is supposed to be. So I think that when i checked the fuse I might have put it back in the wrong spot ( the top left) I hope I'm making sense here. I Never heard the click sound that you get when it reaches temp and Pressure and the light comes on. 2002 7.3

Jerry...If when you turn the switch to manual and the green light does not go on (key off and engine not running)..check the main power supply for power. At the Vegistroke fuse panel check for voltage. If there is no power you may have a blown main fuse for the system at the battery. Dave

It was a bad ground at the main black wire under the dash. Was between metal dash and plastic dash panel...looked like it was held by the screw but when wiggled it just fell out...Found it by checking pump by wiring direct to battery..It ran..but when I bypassed the fuel pump relay the pump got power but would not run..So I checked the V3 pump ground wire and no ground. Looked at the wiring diagram and started checking connections..wouldn't you know..it was at the end of the line....

Oh well one more to remember..Dave

Default Thanks to AZ Dave

Thank you AZdave. It ran perfectly all the way home. Now I can get to Co to take pictures before the fire gets to my house. Sorry I forgot to call you on the way home. It was not related to anything you did or I did.
If you were a chocolate you would be an M & M crunchy on the outside soft on the inside. not sure if there would be a nut in there We are alot alike that way. Thanks again for helping me out on your Saturday afternoon.
Jerry

Dave is for sure one of the most valuable resources in the community. I only wish he was in FL....

Dave - much respect my friend. Once again you've helped out someone in need with a problem that probably would have taken a week to troubleshoot on the forums.
