Default 5.9 Won't Start

OK, so this morning I went out to start up the truck and it cranks over but won't fire.

If I leave the key on for a bit the odometer starts flashing then reads "no bus". Also non of the gauges seem to be working.

I've checked all the fuses and swapped relays and still nothing. I went ahead and replaced the crank position sensor and nothing.

I'm at a total loss here, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Could just be a bad connection at the engine bay bulkhead or computer connector. Worst case, dead computer.

no bus is no communication between sensors and computer. check your connectors for the pcm under the hood. probably all corroded. or unplugged... i found mine half unplugged before, crazy things happen...

Turn the key to ignition, pull the neg battery cable, turn the key off, reconnect the battery and see what happens, sometimes stray voltage screws around and ends up in the wrong places, presenting weird problems...
