Default I need some Chevy help again. My trailer hauler is broke

After my last epic fail with the computer on the 4.3 I got a newer pickup until I figure it out, 2006 Chevy with 6.0. All was fine until Wed when I brought a trailer home, I left it idling until I unhooked and it died while I was back there. Odd, never happened before, worse yet, it will not start, will crank and everything else seems to work but no starting? Went through the fuses and grounds and nothing, went in, next morning it fired up fine and I drove it all Thursday. Friday morning I see a friend so I pull into his driveway and roll down the window, it dies and its the same thing. Have someone come over to load up and bring it home. Checked the fuel pressure and it was fine, no spark and the noid light doesn't fire. I had an extra Crank position sensor so I changed that. Nothing. I did find a mouse next under the under hod fuse box and a couple wires they had chewed on, fixed them but still nothing. Code reader only shows one code for the exhaust sensor. I pulled the intake hose off and throttle pos works fine as the butterfly moves. So why isn't my ignition working or my injectors popping? I have went through all the connections and grounds I can find, might pull the cam sensor next? Thanks, I am lost.

Did you try a different key? May be the chip or the chip reader.

Very well could be a key. Father-in-laws key left him stranded a few times but mother-in-law never had that problem. It took us a few years to discover what was going on.

I had two factory keys, neither did any different and don't appear to have a chip in them, this was a bare bones rubber floor matted work truck so not many frills. Thanks for the idea though

Plug in a Code reader and see what codes you have. Sounds like possibly a Crank Position sensor. Don't you Just Love this New Computerised JUNK

I switched the crank pos with one in another engine that was known to be good so I don't think its that? Thanks

There is a ground wire on back of the motor behind the intake that often gets chewed and causes no start concerns

When you turn the key to run (not crank), is the "check engine" light lit?
If not, you don't have power or ground for the ecm.

Could be a relay, I believe it's the "run-crank" relay that powers part of the ECM, swap it with another that's not critical to running. I've had a few with the mentioned ground behing the head loose. If not, have it scanned by someone that knows what he's looking at, don't start throwing parts at it.

Was the mouse nest in the fuse box? They may have shorted out the fuse box the fuse box does not like moisture. I agree with Jim on the check engine light / relay.
