running poorly. fuse problem
first off, my first diesel and i love it. its a 92 cc f350 idi non turbo.
i noticed right before i parked earlier the battery gauge dropped to 0V. when i restarted, which it had no problems with at all, it stayed at 0 and did not move or make any clicks with the ignition ON. normally itll click and bounce which im assuming is WTS? since i dont have a WTS light?
when driving and idling, the rpm gauge also stays at 0. while on the road 1st gear is kinda ok but slower to accelerate, 2nd gear and on its very jumpy like its surging in power kinda like if you pressed the gas over and over to make it jump. and while it does that it POURS black smoke(cant say im not getting fuel) and it VERY slow to accelerate but can still go 50mph.
i just added fuel injector cleaner to a full tank, batteries and alternator both check out fine, and ill go check some fuses in a bit.
edit: figured it out. im almost sure its a fuse, it blew again before i started the truck, but the battery gauge worked again for 3 seconds until it went boom.
fuse #17: warning buzzer/chime module, warning indicators, gauges, tachometer, electronic transmission.
battery gauge doesnt work, tach doesnt work, the lights to the right of the dash(warning indicaters im guessing?) dont do anything, seems to shift ok..
i finally found the WTS light, sun was on it and i could read it, but its never lit up before
