My instrument panel quit working as I went to put it into gear(column shifter), and at the same time my gas pedal no longer works. The truck does start and idle. I checked the fuses and they seem to be fine. Are the instrument panel and gas pedal related some how electrically? I moved the relays around and that didn't help either.
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.

If you haven't replaced the transmission fluid recently then now is the time. If the fluid is burnt, the transmission tends to fail specially on hot temp. Please do check the transmission fluid first as a first course of action.
It's on the side of the transmission. drivers side. Once you get under the truck you will see the shift cable going to the transmission. the range sensor is mounted on the transmission under the cable arm. easy to replace.
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.
I had the same problem in my 96 f-350. The transmission has slipped recording a slip code in the transmission. You can pull the codes and get it. I shifts into a safe mode that increases the pressure inside your transmission as part od a fail safe. Plain and simple, you have to have the tranny rebuilt.
Ok ready to stand on your head under the dash?
It's doable... there is a flange connected to the gearshift lever under the steering column. If you remove the lower dash cover where the fuses are, you should be able to see it when you move the gear shift lever... look around on the floor of the truck to see if you dropped a star-headed bolt or two... these bolts worked loose on my superduty and made shifting very difficult..it was an easy fix... let me know how you do on it.
