Water in Fuel Light

I can not get my water in fuel light to go off. I have drained the water drain a few times now and have also replaced both fuel filters. I am pretty new to the diesel engine and am not sure if I am missing something, if anyone can help it would be great. the truck is an 03 F-350 with the 6.0 liter

Have you noticed any loss of power. If not, I'm just wondering if the sensor has gone bad since you've done the above. If you're still under warranty take it in and get it checked out.

The water in fuel sensor will get gumed up and start doing that if they are not drained on a normal basis. I think there was a recall on them. Not 100% sure, but it would be worth checking into. I do know that the sensors are bad for doing that though. You will probably need to replace the sensor one way or another. Good luck with it.

Fuel Water Warning

I have a 2006 Powerstroke. The "water in fuel" warning would not go off. Ford looked at it and said the sensor was corroded. The sensor can not be replaced by itself for some reason and they are replacing the whole fuel water separator unit under warranty.
