Andy,

similar thing happened to me: right turn indicated resulted in fast
blinking. After checking the usual suspects I noticed the operation to be
normal as long as did not touch the steering wheel tilt mechanism and would
leave the wheel in the 'up' position. The 'down' position would cause the
fast blinking.

The dealer checked it out and confirmed a pinched wire. It's fixed now.

Pete,

When you mentioned a K&N, did you mean just the replacement cartridge or the
whole FIPK? Thanks for the clarification.

Just the filter. We were a bit surprised that we actually saw that much
from it.

Subject: 2000 Model PSD chip programmer by Hypertech

Did some research online and came across the Hypertech ProgramIII module
that reprograms the existing computer in the 2000 model PSD's.
Supposedly adds 50hp and 108 ft/lbs of torque, but no information on
fuel mileage improvement. Does anyone out there have any experience
with the Hypertech programmer? It's less expensive than the Superchip
alternative, and plugs into the data port underneath the dash to
reprogram the factory chip. It also retains the factory default
settings in the event you opt to return to the factory settings. Costs
about $325. Anyone have any experience with it?

TIA

Don

PS I'm mostly interested in getting a few more mpg's, the added hp and
torque is of lesser importance to me, though it would be nice to be able
to pass someone in 6th gear without having to downshift.

If you look under the back of your truck or follow the wires from the 4-flat back you will find the rest of the bundle that Ford left for you. The bundle should have all the wires you need to hook up a 7-pin.
If you take off the cover for the fuse panel under your dash there will be another bundle there for hooking up a brake controller. Is there a package in the glove box with a wire bundle and some instructions? If not a trip to the Ford dealer to get this will help.
Everything I needed was included in my truck (F350 SD CC 4x4), all I had to do was connect wires.

Forget what I wrote previously, I posted before reading the part about a 97 F350, directions apply to 99 and up.
sorry, Lloyd

Don,

If your looking 4 strictly mpg improvement , at best its 1 to 2 mpg
improvement at worst no improvement. But the feel of the improved throttle
responce is great.

Also if your truck has a trip computer it will throw the average mpg out of
wack to the tune of about 8 mpg to the good
