Throttle not responsive and gauges don't sweep

So last night I pulled into a gas station, filled up the truck (ouch) and then fired her up (smooth start and idling great). Hit the gas and NOTHING! Additionally, my gauges do not sweep, odometer is black and my lights don't turn on (when on auto).

I think I have figured out the throttle. I pulled codes and I got a P0221. So I after some research I have to replace the assembly.

Question # 1: I have the adjustable pedals and the replacement part is about $500! Can I install the NON-adjustable assembly? I would save about $400!

Question #2: Why don't my gauges sweep? I checked all the fuses and they are good?

I am leaving on a trip in 3 days and I don't know what to do. Please advise.

I have a 2003 F250 7.3 with 270k miles, Intake, exhaust and the Edge Evolution CTS (no tunes).

Pick up a throttle at the Parts Yard. Check your Battery cables and Alternator wiring.

well I picked up the NON adjustable pedals and they fit (sigh of relief) but that did not fixmy problem. I towed the truck to the local diesel shop and they said that the shifter column (on the steering wheel) shorted out and that was the source of my problem. $800 later the truck was fixed.

However, an important lesson I learned is that you can replace the adjustable pedals (approx $500-$800) with the NON adjustable pedals ($100) with no mods.

That's good to know since I have them and I don't even use them so if mine ever decides to go out I will put the non adjustable
