Question about 2002 Ford F250 Super Duty SuperCab

2 Answers

My truck keeps blowing the instrument panel fuse.

My F250 has been blowing the instrument panel fuse. The first time my panel went out, we took it in to a dealership, and they said it was the alternator. We had both the alternator and battery replaced. Later that day, the same thing happened. Had to have it towed to another dealership, and found out it was the instrument panel fuse. Since then, it has blown several more times. Any idea where the problem may be coming from?

My 2002 F350 keeps blowing fuse 45. I lose the instrument cluster (all gauges) and there is no throttle response. Sounds like a wire for the od button is shorting out in the steering column. Remove the ignition switch and column shroud and look for a bare wire. be sure and look by where the boot sits. I am just looking for more info before I try it myself. Hope this works for others.

It sounds like it's grounding out on something. I had that problem on my car, and that is what was happening

Od light flashing and speedometer fues keeps blowing shifts very hard


The harness on the shifting arm to the OD/tow haul switch pinches and gets cut, this blows the instrument panel fuse. Don't know if this will relate to the hard shift. The shifter arm with switch and wire harness will need to be replaced.

You should check the wiring for the gear shift. Sometimes the wires rub through on the top and it causes a short.F2.45 is a 10a fuse in fuse box located in the cab. It controls all three of your concerns. Hope this helps, Good Luck.

Electrical problem


I finally broke down and took my truck to the dealer. It took them two tries, but they finally figured it out. It turned out to be the wiring harnes for the shift lever. When it exits the steering column, it was being chafed, and eventually wore through a wire and was intermittently shorting. It would blow a fuse (don't remember which one - I think it was on the bottom row, third in from the right. 20A). It stopped the alternator from charging too. They replaced the shifter harness and the problem went away. I did get a ticket while my speedo was inop however.
