7.3 cutting out at random

I have a '02 f-250 that's cuts off going down the road. It feels like it cuts off and then right back on. Sometimes it will do it 7-8 times a day and other times it won't do it for weeks. replaced cam position sensor and IPR valve with no change. Also, when I crank the truck, the radio and windows won't work for a minute or two. Could these problems be related??

Nope, im sure it totally different. I still have the radio / window issue, but its very intermittent. Do you have an after market deck? (a temporary but violent fix is to hit the top of the dashboard on top of the deck... haha! it sounds bad but it works!
The throttle cut-out on mine was actually a throttle position wire thats been running against metal and eventually shorted out. Surprisingly the wire was just open, it had no protection from rubbing, so that may be the case for you. Under the front driver side fender well. It was actually good timing for me though, I just pulled up beside my local auto shop and the throttle completely died! haha.

Hope this helps.

some cps's are known to be bad right out of the box.
delphi cps or borg warner are the way to go.
although borg warner cps has wiper issues on some trucks.
delphi can be found on amazon and BW at oreilys

I have the same issue. So if you find out what is causing the problem let me know. Its getting a little dangerous.
