Electrical Problems ... HELP Please!!!
I have a 2001 Excursion with a 7.3 Powerstroke in it and it has 167000 miles on it and it started to have some weird electrical problems.
Fuse 28 is blowing at different times and I can't figure it out. Sometimes it blows as soon as I turn on the key and other times it waits a little while and then blows. It blew this morning when I hit the right turn signal, and again later when I put it in drive. So, I don't know where to start.
It is a 15A fuse (per the book) and it controls the flashers, turn signals, vacuum pump for the 4X4 shift on the fly, instrument cluster trouble lights, and the overhead console.
I called Ford and they said to replace the vacuum pump because as the get old the start to draw too much current which will blow the fuse. I have since replaced the pump and the problem still exists.
My truck is stock with the exception of a Gear Vendors under/overdrive unit.
I am at my wit's end.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
