My first post. Been lurking for a month now. I've owned several powerstrokes over the last 15 years but last month I stumbled upon a 2013 F350 6.7 going through an auction and bought it. Its a theft recovery (previously stolen and written off by an insurance company) with no visual damage other than a cracked windshield and rear window. There was damage to the headliner as well (the thief thought there may be gps tracking so he cut a hole through the headliner to cut the wire to the satellite antenna on the roof).
All those repairs have been completed and I have the truck on the road now.
Yesterday was my first drive and I went straight to a quick oil change place I deal with regularly as the display in the dash said it was overdue for a change.
They offered to reset my oil change indicator but couldn't. The dash display doesn't respond to pushing the buttons on the steering wheel. The cruise control buttons all seam to function though.
Being this truck was written off by an insurance company, it likely won't have warranty but I will go to a local dealer to check after Christmas.
Assuming I am on my own with this, I am looking for any help I can get.
Has anyone ever had a problem with the controls?
Is there a wiring diagram available so I could check through to see if any of the wiring or connections have been damaged?
I appreciate all the info.
I was able to install cab lights and change out my damaged antenna wiring at the same time from reading threads on here. Thanks.
