It sounds like you're describing the IRCM (integrated relay control module) that powers/switches the ECM, f/pump, cooling fan(s), and A/C compressor clutch. Does it look like THIS?

What's preventing the engine from starting/running.....lack of spark or lack of fuel (pressure or inj pulse)?  <shrug>

I found out what the part was. It was the box that holds the fuel pump, fan ect relays.  Took the part number to oreilly's and got one over night. All Good now!

That is just what it was. Replaced it earlier and she's back running (Tell the next minor issue happens)
