Fuse Panel problem - truck dies
Hello all, I need some help....
My 2000 F-350 is dieing once in a while. It did this earlier in the year, mid-summer, would have a no-start situation, no glow lights, just wouldn't fire up. Ended up messin' with the fuses, seemed you'd just touch one, and not always the same one, but it would be on the right side of the panel under the dash. Found a bolt in the back, seemed to need tightened, after that, started fine untill Friday... same old tricks... seems to be when inside the cab is warm (summer time, sittin' in the sun, no start. Friday, cold out, heater blastin', once it gets cozy in the cab, then it might die).
I'm not sure how the fuse panel is put together, didn't seem real user friendly when I tightened that bolt in the back of it last summer, but I wanna do that again, see if it helps.
I do know this fuse panel has been replaced, it has a date of sept 2002 on it. Truck build date is 12/'99. Is this common? Have any of you had to do this? Know any easy tricks, is there a way to get inside the fuse panel to tighten up something?
Thanks for any input...
