Yeah thats your fuse for the fuel heater element. You have to unplug the fuel heater at the fuel bowl as its shorting out.

You bet. Under the plastic engine cover is the fuel filter bowl it will have a black round plastic cover. Inside that bowl is your fuel filter and a heating element at the bottom. Its a poor design and this is common. On the drivers side about 3/4 of the way down inside the bowl there is a wire with a blade connectore unplug it.

If your in a cold climate you will need to replace the element. Otherwise if you live in a warm part of the country don't worry about it

Plugging it in won't help with your fuel. If you going to be in cold temps which you will be get to ford or international and get a new element put in before you go or you might have some gelling issues or at the very least the wax in the fuel plugging your fuel filter.
