INSTRUMENT CLUSTER GONE WONKY TRUCK DONT START

hey everyone im looking for anyone who might have heard of this this morning i was driving and my truck lost power like it was going into limp mode but kinda came back but not fully ,but at the same time my gages all started to go up and down and my milage and trip numbers were replaced by lines and it keeps changing the symbol from a gas pump to wrench to a traction symbol and than to a temp sign and my tepm gage goes up and down when that one apears . i left it for a bit and it didnt start or even turn over than all ov a sudden it did and it was fine than a few min later it started to do it again . i pulled the edge system out thinking this was the cause and now the truck would turn over and the security light is going of and on really fast and the dash has started to do all the things i listed again , hey any help would be awsome.( and the batterys are fully charged ) thanks everyone

I have seen some strange happenings in the electrical sys due to a loose ground. Check around the fuse block under the hood. Also I don't know where the ground is for the dash but it will affect communication with the rest of the system. let us know what you find out and good luck

i ended up having to take mine into ford , they said it had a missing fuse from new , was just never put in but what they said was happining was there is 7 powers from the pcm and it was back feeding from them and for some reason it just stoped feeding off there source so it put everything into shut down , i though this sounded really strange but the shop diesel tech said this can happen , now unless they were blowing smoke up my butt and were just saying this and hidding a bigger problem i dont know but this was the excuse i got . and the truck works perfect except it still suck on fuel lolol

Who is to know if it was b.s. or not. At least you are back up and running. I am still waiting for the pcm. Then we will see if that even fixes the problem. It would be sad to know that a fuse could have fixed my problem as well.
