Figured out that my chip went bad. It had been working, and then not working for the past few days. Took it off, and was shifting fine. About a day ago, I started blowing my 4x4 Solenoid fuse, which is also my back-up lamp fuse, brake shift interlock, DRL Relay Coil, Speed control module, trailer tow back-up lamp relay coil, vacuum pump motor fuse. It is location 28, 10A fuse under the kick plate. I unplugged my 4x4 solenoid hoping this was the cause of the blown fuse, but it keeps blowing. Usually when the back up lights come on in reverse.
I am now chugging before shifts. I started it cold this morning, about 25 outside, it was snowing a little here in Southeast Idaho. Let it warm up about a minute(not long enough, I usually let it warm up longer) it wasn't plugged in either. At about 35 mph I lost all power, and it eventually died.
I put it in neutral, and it cranked and cranked a few times, but then started. I pulled into a gas station, let it idle about 5 minutes, and put some diesel 911 in it. I thought maybe it gelled up, but didn't think it was cold enough. Got in and drove it about 5 miles and was just fine. Has been the rest of the day as well.
My battery light is also flashing randomly. Usually in park, or in reverse. I put an alternator in it a year ago, and two new batteries in shortly after.
My starter fuse also keeps blowing. I have replaced the starter itself, and the solenoid on top of the motor.
I realize this post could go under several categories. I am at a loss. I don't know what the heck is going on. To me, it sounds electrical, but I have no idea. Any input from ANYONE would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance.
