Question about 2000 Ford F350 Super Duty Super Cab
Burnes fuse 30amp location 30 fuse panel left of steering wheel. glow wait light not on . I changed the fuse but they burn out .???? thanks Ralph I took my 7.3 to coffee this morning (5 degrees) 2000 model year, it starts right up as long as the engine heater is plugged in overnite or even for an hour. Some have told me they have to use glow plugs even after the block heater, not this one. Let it idle during coffee, got in drove it 1.5 miles to my shop, went to get out to see if I was aligned with the plow and just as I got out, it died!! After some searching the 30 amp fuse was blown, simple, I had a replacement, did that it started, my foreman was lining me up with the plow and poof, did it again. SO, I did not use glow plugs or need to this morning, what the heck made it decide to burn the fuse with no current draw (apparent) or switch turning or anything else. I am quite certain the fuel pump does run on that circuit however. Thanks to anyone that has an idea on this one!!
I think the fuel heater as I have seen this many times.. It is under the fuel filter and special tool to remove. By the way the wait to start light is just a computer contolled light on this vehicle and has no bearing as to what the glow plugs are doing. I think they cycle on a cold engine like 80 secs no matter how long you wait to start. ALso on 7.3 make sure have REALLY good batteries, It does make a difference

hi.check the start selenoid on the pass side of the engine in the engine valley it has 2 battery connections and a little wire it turns on the glow plugs the wire might be comprimised look for the wire chaffing or insulation rubbed off. does it blow out immediatly or over time?
