Wait to start light question

I did a search but didnt find anything really. I have been having some issues with my wait to start light comming on while I am driving. Seems to be happening more often. It will come on normal before starting and then within a couple of min. it comes on while driving. Does it mean anything or is it just a glitch?

Yup, there was a TSB on that for the 02 and 03 trucks. It was even happening on the gas trucks lol. The fix is to replace the cluster, and on the 02's you might also have to reprogram the pcm so that they will communicate properly. 03's dont need this reprogram they just need a new cluster.

I'm sure thats not what you wanted to hear though....

That cluster is $267 from powerstrokeshop.com
Not bad, I expected it to be more than that.

But,, just because the light is ON does that mean the Glow Plug System is active or is the defect just wrongly reporting it?


(I couldn't d/l the .pdf from the TSB above)
