Odd electrical problem

I have a 99 f350 with an odd electrical issue. My gauges don't work, odometer doesn't work, and the dinger goes off and the automatic door locks continue to lock and unlock. If I press the accelerator all stops but the gauges remain dead. As soon as I let off the gas the dinger and door locks continue. I have disconnected and cleaned all the electrical plugs that tie into the firewall as well as the electrical connections under the master cylinder. I'm at a loss, if you can point me in any direction it would greatly be appreciated. Thanks Jeff

Try posting in the section relevant to your year of truck. Electrical systems between the two generations are vastly different. Our trucks are much more old-school wrt. electricals/electronics. I hear tell about a gizmo you guys have called the GEM - General Electrical Module - known for collecting rain water and causing all manner of ghostly electrical phenomena, like you're experiencing. But the guys here: Ford Powerstroke 99-03 7.3L Forums - Ford Powerstroke Diesel Forum would know much better.
