If the system has a switch for A/F pick up ( as opposed to a valve ) then 12v power is involved, check all your fuses; if fuses are OK then possible, A/F solenoid valve failure is the cause , trace the A/F pick up tube and you'll find it . Will be on the tank side of the 12v water pump, usually close by.

Should be two valves. Turn OFF from on board water tank, ON FROM antifreeze supply, then pump on.

Make sure that you have turned on the bypass and turned off the inputs to the water tank or you will spend all day filling it.
For a proper answer call Brad at Triple E.
I forgot how I did my 2003, but it was quite easy.
