No Throttle.. or Gauges/odometer????

I have an 02 7.3 4x4, shut it off went in the store, came out and started it put in drive pushed the gas and no acceleration and all of the gauges were not working. I replaced the cam sensor about a month ago. A friend thought it could be the throttle position sensor but wanted to see if anyone here has had a similar problem. Truck only has 50k mi on it. Would appreciate any comments.

It is the fuse for the dash, Also runs your fuel pedal. Also runs OD off switch. I would almost gareentee that your od off switch has worn a spot through it and is grounding out against your steering wheel. I have seen this several times and it has been the culprut. Then when you tilt your wheel or put it in gear every once in a while it will touch and zap the fuse.

There is two little wires that come from the OD off switch. To access them you have to pop your dash out then twist out the tilt lever. there is two or three screws on the bottom of the steering wheel for the plastic cover. Then you have to turn your key to the on position and use a pointed object and push on the little release button of the tumbuler. pull out the tumbuler and then you can remove the rest of the plastic. Then you should be able to see the wires coming out of the shifter. look for a spot rubbed through the wires. If you see one unplugg them and then if needed pound out the pin for the shifter so you can tape up the wires easier. I hope this helps, like I said I have seen this on several 7.3's.

Yep, Put a 30 amp fuse in mine to get it home. Cost me 800$ to replace the fuse panel The worst part is I know better! You think ford could have wrapped those 2 wires in some tape! ha ha ha Good Luck

Holly Chit, It fried the whole panel. $800 That sucks. It would be worth the hour it takes to take it apart and tape the wires for protection
