I have a 97 F250 diesel with the 7.3 engine. about 120,00 miles, runs grait. just recently i replaced the fuel tank selector, bothbattery's, and the starter. it started just fine and ran normal. i drove it about 80 miles with no problems. it sat for about 2 weeks and now every time i turn the key it blows the fuel pump/glow plug fuse.

Fuse 17 10amp protects the following 1)transmission control switch and lamp. 2)brake fluid level switch 3)warning chime 4)diesel warning lamps display 5)fuel water switch 6) low vacuum warning switch 7)instrument cluster 8) switch lamps,,,,,,,,,,,,,, i think your problem on transmission control switch, check also brake light and brake switch
i have that same issue and mine is a 97. I think its either injection related or the high pressure oil pump my buddy's just went out and its doing the same thing our trucks are doing. the best bet is to get rid of your truck or pay 2600 bucks unless your a skilled mechanic or know someone who can do it for cheap because the parts only like 20- 100 bucks
You should start with the glow plug relay/timer.Check it to see if may be shorted.Remove the smaller wires going to it and turn the key back on,if the fuse does'nt blow then replace it,if it does then you need to unplug the fuel preheater in the filter housing and try the key on thing again,pretty sure it's one or the other.
try loosening the injector lines a little then crank it.it probably has air in the lines and wont blow through the injectors,once fuel comes out while cranking,tighten them,if this is the problem it should start but run rough untill the lines are tight,it shouldnt hurt much to get a little fuel on the engine
well you can extend the pick-up tube by fabricating a hose with perfaration to lay flat on tank so its always submerrg'd. Shouldnt be to bad to do...just reqiures droping tanks....Other than that try your best to keep 1/4 tank minimum....but obviously the pick up tube on the bottom of the fuel pumps sending unit is up to high., and when you take the turn the pump, pumps like normal but gets air/fuel mixture and causes the stall due to enriched o2 levels...No way around it either...
no it wont but a cloged fuel filter will increase the pressure from tank to filter and overload the amperage in fuel pump and posibly burnt fuse also check for bad engine mounts if engine moves while is under load it might contact some wires and burnt fuse
