truck only idles and no guages work??

2000 7.3 2WD 120K mi.

engine cranks and runs smoothly but does not respond to throttle whatsoever. At the same time this happened all of the guages on the dash quit working. Even the overdrive on/off switch is dead. I tried unhooking both batties but it didn't change anything. Any ideas????

you have a blown fuse, your wires for your overdrive cancel switch rubbed through where the cross over the top of the steering column. a little tape and a new fuse and you'll be good to go.

Did you find the rubbed through wire and fix it? If not it will do it again.

I've seen this issue more than a few times. On multiple models. Basically if the blown fuse has the overdrive cancel switch on it that's where you start looking.
