    1st off to the site,You have mention 3 Items.I'm guessing here the whining could be the Transmision??,Truck Sputtering could be a number of items,Injector's,Fuel Filter or Fuel pump.and with the Service brake light coming on it could be the brake fluid is low,your pads need to be Replaced.I was going to mention going Auto Zone,and check what code's are coming up.I'm Sorry I'm not much help.Hopefully another member will pipe in.

    what are the chances of all thoses thing at the same time. brake pads are good and so is the fluid. the abs light is on as well. just had the injectors checked their great. you think the whining behind the cab could be the fuel pump? the low fuel light had just come on before all this happened.

    because it wont turn over you think is could be electrical, ECU, fuses, battery, ...

    If the fuel pump is the Problem Ya,Your truck is not going to Start.I would try to find someone who can pull the codes from your truck.That is really the only way to find out what the problems are,Again I'm sorry I could not help you.I've got to call it a Night.Went you find the Problem let me know, Later Be Safe,Mike
