Sounds like your due for UVCH harnesses and replacement connectors. Outer pins are for the glow plugs. Middle pin is a common to the two injectors the connector feeds. The other two go to the individual injectors.

From more research I've done its due to a bad glow plug or glow relay that grounded out. Time to change

How hard are those harnesses to change? How many are there? Where do I get them? Anything else I should be looking at? I have a 95 F-350 CC 4x4.

they arent hard at all just pop the valve covers off and you have 2 harness on the inside and 2 on the outside each connecting to the valve cover gasket the 2 on the inside snap on the two on the outside you will have to cut and splice wires. i dont know how much ford or internation will charge or how long it takes to get em. but autozone oreily should have the dorman part for about $64 a set that gets you one valve cover gasket and all the harnesses that connect to it. hope this helps
