help!, loss of power completly

Yesterday i left my truck on an incline with half a tank of fuel, i start it up in the morning and everything is fine but the truck keeps saying "low fuel" off and on, so about 1 mile away from my house waiting to jump on the freeway (truck still cold) i shut it down at a redlight and restart it.

Well the light turns green i am on my way about 1/2 mile down the road the truck loses all power (it was just idling away), i pull over and then the truck starts working again all on its own but i do get a "service engine soon". I decide to take it home and take another vehicle instead.

Well when i got home i i took the truck to the store and it ran perfectly for the 10 miles or so, i then went ahead and pulled codes and all it had was "glow plug circuit failure" 3 times, cleared it and all was well.


Well this morning, i go start my truck and it starts right up, but none of the gauges work (all at zero)... gas/water temp/ oil pressure/ rpm i mean none!.

I go move the truck, and it moves back but just at idle, if i hit the gas it would not move.

I once again shut it down and restart it, this time everything works, no check engine light and i drive to work 30 miles without any problems.

what can this be? help!!

if i had to guess what the problem is i would say the wires in the steering column for the overdrive lght are chaffed and rubing the side of the column , pull steering column cover off and inspect the small wires coming from the shifter , i bet that what your problem is, the instrument cluster and accelerator pedal are al on that circuit
