Hi All,
My truck is a 2001 F250, 7.3, Automatic, 4x4

My truck symptoms are as follows;
I will be driving down the road the radio goes dead, the whole dash goes dead, then mysteriously the radio comes back on then the speedometer and tachometer peg out, go back to zero, then starts working normal again, except the charge light stays on. After I turn the truck off and restart the charge light is off again.

I have had it into my mechanic several times but we get no hard codes to follow a diagnosis. this has been going on for over a year. once we did have a code to check the glow plug modules and have replaced one of them.

the intermittent problem still exists, Has anybody else seen this and found the culprit?

There was an electrical revision during the '01 mdl/yr and, if your truck has a Trans Temp gauge in the cluster, you might have this problematic connector ->

POTENTIAL ELECTRICAL CORROSION if your truck is like mine......
