Can you be more specific?
Is there a component that is wired through the steering column that has a problem? Turn signals--horn--cruise control--whatever, I need more info?
I don't believe I have an over-all wiring diagram for steering column, itself?
this system was used before there was a move to power steering and collapsible steering columns
the ram type power steering is not power steering in the true sense of the word but power assisted steering
so to get what you want you will have to go back to workshop manual archives or car clubs with veteran or vintage vehicles
many steering systems were made by generic companies (eaton, dayton etc) and the set up was the same across a variety of makes including dodge , international, GM so don't solely focus on ford but more on the steering system manufacturer
it is inside the steering column you need to remove the steering wheel (need steering wheel puller. remove lock plate (need lock plate removal tool) under the lock plate is the switch it kind of looks like a horse shoe with many wires going to it.
Ford F-250 has used several different steering columns over the last 50 years of production....which one would you like a diagrm for?
With that said, the best place to get GOOD service information for your steering column would be at alldatadiy.com. For a small anual fee, you can access all of the same information I would use if you were to bring your truck to me for repair. They will have step-by-step instructions with diagrams for disassembling and reassembling your steering column.
horn button and cruise control have button contacts on a circular ring surroundingthe steering shaft, that ring may not be fully square to wheel, or the contact buttons are worn, or the dividiing plastic strips are damaged- with the smoke being the moemntary shorted condition heating everything up..
There are no wiring diagrams for the "steering column". Wiring diagrams show the wiring for circuits, not the parts of the car that the circuits just happen to be fastened to. For instance, if you are having trouble with your horn, or if you are having problems with your turn signals, you would look up the wiring diagram for the horn, or the diagram for the turn signals, not the wiring diagram for the steering column.
