random (and breif) loss of all power
I have a late 99 f250. I just brought the truck home this weekend and it made the 1000 mile trip with no issue. One time sitting idling in a parking lot (engine warm) it just stalled, acted like I turned the key off, and all the dash lights came on. Since then I have driven it about 1500 miles with no issues at all. This morning on the way to work I was cruising alonge at about 30mph in 4th gear and it acted just like I turned the key off for a second, I think I saw all the dash lights come on at the exact same time the injectors stopped firing, but it came back to life so fast it was hard to tell. I ordered another CPS just to have a spare, but it seems strange that all the dash lights come on at the same time. The previous owner installed a bully dog 4 bank chip, and I am wondering if a bad connection could cause this? It happens so quickly and so rarely that its hard to really get a good look at the dash/tach.
