    The is in an e one junker firetruck rear engine it acts to me like a relay kickin out but to find it is going to be a chore it has fuse panels all over an none are marked if i jump directly at starter an it starts that should tell me i have a bad wire or relay somewere in the 3 mile long wire harness. Correct?

    Yes it does have electronic fuel pedal. When you say ecm was disconnected with power on could a bad wire/connection give same result

    Fuel filters have ben changed as well as tank drained. It does have turbo. Voltage on guage in dash reads 12 volt untill you go above idle and this isue is there wether all the pretty lights are on or not. By the way it is an e- one an there wiring sucks to put it nicely i will check all the wire connections an see what i get. I have been told to replace throttle position sensor an that will fix it. We are a small fire co with little funds so i dont want to throw parts at it if not needed
