Figure out what's missing when it won't start.

The crank sensor, the coil & most sensors are packed in hard epoxy resin. When it is all totally cooled off, if it starts right up then poops out after warming up, then consider that anything with a hairline crack where you cant see it may spread open as it expands with heat causing it to run no more, then after it cools off & contracts again, the connections are back to where they need to be to fire off allowing it to start & run. This is really common on GM coil packs - they can bench test fine while cool, but get warm on the engine causing this exact issue. The PCM would be the last thing I would suspect. Crank sensor & ignition coil are my 2 top choices for the real issue.

I swapped both those out on mine and it still did it. I knew it had to be something with the PCM from the get go bc it wasn't throwing a code and none of my gauges were working until the truck started back up.

Hey Robert, did you ever find the problem? I am having the same problem. I was looking to change the fuel pump/crank/cam sensor but wanted to see what your problem was if it was fixed.

I had the same problem with my truck. I had to replace the alternator. It runs fine now.

Sorry, forgot about this thread. It was the TPS sensor. I started wiggling wires under the hood and when I wiggled the wires to the TPS sensor it started to die. Replaced the sensor and fixed the issue. I also posted a vid on YouTube for anyone else that may have difficulty replacing it.
