Question about 2003 Ford F250 Super Duty Crew Cab
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.

I've had the same issue on my truck. I'm glad its not just me. I took it to the dealership and the they said it was just a fuse. But i wasn't there at the dealership to talk with anyone so i don't know what fuse it was. I again now am faced with the same problem because the fuse blew today on me again when i tried to put the truck into 4X4 high. I think i just overloaded the fuse or something. I'm going to go to go to ford today and see what fuse that all goes too.
I do know that whatever fuse it is stops the power from the alternator to the battery so your battery will be dead if you keep driving it. But i'll let everyone know what the problem is when i find it.
