Question 7.3 water in fuel

yesterday I posted 7.3 wont start and thanks to you guys I thought I had the problem fixed by disconecting the water sensor. Today made it just about all the way to work and the stupid light came on again and engin died. I thought to my self, how can that light come on when the stupid thing is unhooked. Thoughts any one???

The WIF sensor curcuit went to ground if that light came on. That could have taken the curcuit for the pump to ground and took amperage from the pump and caused it to die. What year is your truck?
