"HELP"

Go out to start my truck, the whole insterrment cluster is dead, guages, glow plug wait light ect. No throttle response at all. The truck does is idle....Of course its Friday night and the family had planned on leaving in the AM for an overnight R&R.. At least we arent stuck 200 miles from home..

Where do I go from year to get my rig back on line?

start checking fuses... bet you find one blown... some under the dash, some under the hood... check them all, even after you find a blown one, keep checking, could be more than one.

You might not find a blown fuse. Same thing happened to me about a week ago. After about ten minutes everything came back alive fine. None of my fuses blew.

Try tapping on the relays under the dash....could be a coincidence, but mine started working right as soon as I tapped on a relay.

I don't think that was the problem though....the relay I tapped was called injector something relay.

I think you'll find Fuse #45 blown and the reason is that the OD sw wires, at the end of the Shift Selector, have chafed through under the column.

I bet that is what it is... When I had my 99 and chipped it, the chip didn't seat all the way (well ok I didn't install it correctly) and I had the same problem with my dash and the engine not wanting to go above idle.

If you are chipped, check it and see if it walked out of the computer.

The chip is making contact and working,,, I can idle down the engine with the switch in #3 position, and that works..

Going out in a bit to check fuses,, I love working outside in the winter..

No problem

You might try and just replace that fuse (and carry a few spares) for the trip home. It might last 10mi / 100mi / 1,000mi until it happens again. BUT when you do get to a place where you can repair that short you should...
