97' F250 DIED WHILE DRIVING

While driving truck died, like shutting the key off. I changed the fuel filter and CPS. I then found this site, after reading a few threads, I performed a few tests. There is no WTS light when the ignition is turned on. There is no CEL when ignition is turned on. There is no smoke coming out of tailpipe when cranking over. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

First of all, welcome to the site! Sorry to hear you're having trouble.

First thing to check would be fuse #22. It runs your PCM (Powertrain Control Module - aka engine computer). Unfortunately it also runs the fuel bowl heater element which is known to short out and blow the fuse, thus killing the power to pretty much everything that makes the engine run. Check that fuse carefully (with a meter if possible) and we can go from there. By the way, if it is the fuse, you might want to consider unhooking the fuel bowl heater to prevent it from happening again. Lots of us on here run all year round without the heater, so it's not really a concern.

Good luck, hope this helps.

If it isn't under warranty, I'll fix it myself.

Oh, by the way, fuse 22 is a Maxi fuse located under the hood and not in the fuse block in the cab. Sorry, should have said that before.

Fuse #22 was blown. how do I disconnect the fuel bowl heater? I see the two connections on the driver side of the fuel filter housing.

If that turns out to be the ticket, this thread has to have set some sort of record for fastest problem/solution set ever resolved. Only five minutes between the original post and first response.

That is what seperates 7.3L OBS forum from the rest!
