2001 7.3 Dies when its wetq

My 01 F350 has now died TWICE when the right front gets an unusual amount of water - once when blasting through a BIG puddle, and now today at the car wash. Both times letting the truck sit for an hour or so solved the problem.

So, does anyone know what is on the right front fender well that doesn't like to get wet?

I know it is a relatively common problem with the windshield sealant failing, causing water to get into the fues pannel and/or GEM module. Might want to get it all soaked up and get under the dash and see if you have a leak... obviously any water getting inside the Fuses/GEM/PCM/IDM would be a BAD thing.


Sorry, not much help.

I appreciate the suggestion, but there was no water on the windshield at all. No fuses blew, no CEL.

The first time it happened I ran thru a good size puddle on the passenger side of the truck, and it died (almost instantly). The second time it happened (yesterday) the guy at the car wash sprayed the right front corner/wheel and the truck died.

I'm guessing there's something around the right front fender well that doesn't like getting wet, but I dont have a clue what it is.

My truck used to do this also. Usually while driving in the rain and it ended up being the cam sensor once I got the updated one it never did it again. Hope this helps

I thought about that, but this is a fresh dealer installed cam sensor via the recall.

I'm baffled.
