Throttle surge and blowin fuses

00 EX with 92k miles, stock except intake. The EX is surging while on the throttle, and some times falls off while on the throttle. Have recently changed the fuel filter thinking our WONDERFUL fuel here in Montana was overworking the filter. New filter did not help at all. While on a fishing trip pulling the boat, the vehicle blew the 10 amp fuse 3 times that controls the Cruise, OD button, Gauges, and throttle pedal. I know that there are three relays in the pedal configuration, but were should I start. The wife is tired of whip lash! Please Help. Thanks

Take the plastic off the column. There will be some wires going up to the OD button on the shifter. Check for chaffing/exposed wires.

I checked the column, and the wires are fine. That made me wonder if the wires were chaffed, it still should not affect the surging of the gas pedal. Oh ya, by the way the Excursion, is a diesel. Still in need of help. I am trying to avoid going to the dealership as a new baby will be here shortly! MONEY is tight!

pm me the VIN. There is a TSB on this.

Could be a bad peddle, but still sounds like a wiring issue.

Blowing fuses give it away in my book. Chaffed wires will cause this problem..
