    If it’s the ecm there is a place in Florida that rebuilds them also listen for the lift pump to come on after bumping the starter it should run 15-30 seconds

    If the wait to start light is not doing correctly it’s possible the ecm is the issue or loosing communication

    Check lift pump flow at the filter does it have pump on the block or has it been updated you can swap relays several are the same in engine compartment fuse panel sounds. Like the board on the pump but might try unplugging the injection pump plug in and clean and use dielectric grease on the connection the pumps have a bad wrap but it’s usually due to low fuel pressure causing the pump to go bad Find a local kid with a smarty tuner it can check codes in the pump that won’t show on check engine light
