Default 97 Ram No Check Engine light and wont start

I have a 97 ram 1500 2wd with the 318. It was running fine then just shut off, it now turns over but won't start. The check engine light doesnt come on with the key in the on position now. It blew the fusible link for the fuel pump in dtc and I replaced that but now still won't start. Any help ya'll could give would be greatly appreciated.

Got spark? Getting fuel(check with pressure gauge)? Try swapping ASD relay with the horn relay or similar. How was it running prior to this incident? Try this and see if any codes come up http://dodgeforum.com/forum/2nd-gen-...code-list.html

Welcome to the site

Do you have any idea why it blew the link? Maybe other electrical damage occurred also
