you dont have to purge anything, sounds electrical, check all the connections to the starter, fuses, ect.

If the starter wasn't connected then the truck wouldn't even turn over.. Unless it was the crank sensor wire..

press the button on the side of the vapourizer it has a spring on it and that will prime the mixer and make sure the valves are open on your tanks
