Blown fuse 22 / No start

I started my truck to let it warm up. After 15 min. I went 200 yards and the engine died. It cranks fine but will not start. I found fuse 22 blown. I replaced it and that one blew. It was 5 degrees that morning the truck quit. The "Wait To Start" light does not come on. This is a 1997 7.3 International F350. Has anyone else had this problem and can help me out?

It is most likely the fuel heater in the fuel filter/water seperator bowl They ground out and blow that fuse which also kills the pcm. You can unplug it untill you can get a new one which you may need if it gets as cold as you say.

Is that the plug on the passenger side of the filter housing?

No it's on the drivers side. Look underneath the fuel bowl header. You will see 2 black plugs. The heater wire is the top one. This is the one you want to disconnect.

Mine went out last year and I waited to replace it this fall. I priced one last week and they went from $75 to $160 in that amout of time. Anyone know where to get one cheaper?

I don’t feel like it needs the heater, all it does is heat the fuel in the bowl. The fuel in the tank, lines, pump, heads, etc is not heated. I’m from a warm climate so maybe I don’t know what I’m talking about but I removed mine last year.
