Default Stranded - engine will not start

So it keeps getting better. Stopped for fuel on my way back to NC and now the engine will not start. It cranks from the cockpit and using the remote start but it will not fire. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Air I. The fuel lines. Can you pour
Automatic transmission fluid into the racor filter all the way to the top. And then try to start it again

Can you or a helper hear the fuel solenoid "click" as the ignition switch is turned on?

Thank you to everybody for posting some of the tips here. RANDY, I reserved the option of calling you if I needed the special forces involved to get this fixed. What came to be was the Jake break was shorted on. Although I check the switch, I started to start thinking of other things and by good luck I check the wiring and found the short. where it is shorted I have no idea yet but I will do that once I get back home. Again, I do appreciate everybody responding to this thread. Makes returns is like this so much easier to deal with such an amazing group.

It was on a truck,so i have never seen it on a bird.
Good find,how did you figure it out so fast?

Pretty much dumb luck in having a memory cloud pop out of my head. I had this happen one time on my Peterbilt with a Series 60. So after rules out the common so specs, I’ve decided check this system and then bingo. I found a short.
