fuse #22 keeps blowing

started the truck yesterday morning and was driving to work then it just dies. ended up being the fuse so I swapped it with the trailer control fuse and it got me to work and home. the truck sat all night, started it this morning, went inside to let it warm up and 5 minutes later it popped again. tried swapping it and it blew right away. so now it's something serious. is it my fuel bowl heater going bad and shorting out? please help I need this fixed before the next snow. fuse #22 keeps blowing-imageuploadedbyag-free1387455865.230414.jpg

Unplug the fuel heater first and then see if it still blows the fuse. Connector us down in the drivers side if fuel bowl

As long as your running winter fuel it's not necessary at all I know of some that are running unplugged in 20 below temps with no issue

That and after about ten minutes of running the fuel returning from the head is REALLY hot.

just pulled the wire for the heater. the upper wire that has a square rubber boot. put a new fuse and fired right up. let's hope that's the problem. fuse #22 keeps blowing-imageuploadedbyag-free1387499282.469671.jpg
