Huh, I think you're saying this should be added, yes? I'm having difficulty hearing you over your sarcasm because it's so loud!

Us moderators don't read every single thread ya know. In fact, that's why I have that above quoted statement in the tech folder!

Next time, just drop a PM...sans sarcasm!

bflora is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Bumping due to it happening to me!

Dang it, if I only saw this sooner! This very issue just occurred to me today (while filing up with fuel), and while I was stranded / sitting there with-out a clue what was going on (truck would run / start with no issue but no dashboard action or accelerator response).

Tow truck picked me up, and by the time we got to the dealer, I found the issue on this forum via my cell. I then was able to give a much better explanation to the tech regarding what to look for - unfortunately, they still have my truck since I'm relying on them to fix

My OD light came on several days ago, found this



Was only one wire but was almost all the way thru
Cut that one and soldered back together and wrapped in elect tape

Fuse #19

Do this fix before it happens....

Wife called me from town this weekend and said the Ex was dead. Cranked but no start and all the panel lights where out except the battery light. The computer read 0 miles to empty even though it had 1/2 tank.

Apparently the overdrive had shorted out and blew a 10 Amp fuse #19 under the steering column.

Amazing that a simple little fuse can bring the beast to its knees!

Hopes this helps and thanks for the write-up.

Hey guys,
I was replacing fuses for my gauges and odometer dying and figured it was probably the short in the overdrive wire. However recently, the gauges all died and I went to change the fuse and it wasn't blown leading me to believe the short in the OD wires was completely through the wire. So then I changed he shift lever out and my gauges still aren't coming on, any ideas as to what I blew when my fuse didn't blow???
Any help is much appreciated!
Thank you!
