2000 F250, crazy electrical issues (see thread)
okay well there are a bunch of random things happening so I sure hope somebody can help me asap. I don't want this truck going to a shop for them to charge me hundreds or even a thousand dollars
Interior Lamp Relay buzzes on and off incredibly fast. I can unplug the plug which contains the dome light wire, door lock wires, and along with a bunch of other wires and the relay stops buzzing which I'm sure it's just because the interior lights run through that plug. The plug is located just to the right of the steering assembly above the gas pedal.
If the horn switch is pressed then the horn will stay active unless by either removing the horn fuse or horn relay. Once its plugged back in it will stop until again pressed. Now occasionally the horn will just randomly go off. Must be some kind of back feed, idk that's why im here lol
The radio and power windows stay active. The black/green wire from the ignition switch has ~11 volts and the gray/yellow had ~5 volts. This is without the key in the ignition. There is a relay under the radio that stays active also. I connected my power probe and induced a ground into the bk/gn wire and the radio and power window circuits die along with the "Accessory Delay Relay" (relay 5 in under dash fuse box) and that relay under the radio shut off. Hope that has some meaning to this issue. Although the "Interior Lamp Relay" stays buzzing.
Also the lights on all the control switches in the door panels or on, don't know if they come on with the accessory/ignition circuit that is active or not but just figured i would through that in.
What could be the issue and how can I fix this? If anyone can maybe help led me in the right path that would be great.
If anyone is in the Oklahoma City area and can resolve my problem I'll definitely buy you some beer
