Thumbs down Instrumets and Sensors

Hi guys i have a project in my university, the assignment is that i have to build the diagram where it shows all the instruments and sensors that the Ford F-350 has. So the problem is that in the user's manual i can not find what does the F-350 has, it only brings what it shows in the panel but i need to know all the information about all the sensors that it goes to the ECU and that are show in the panel and all the variables that it goes to the ecu and are not showed!

If you guys help me out with all this information i will appreciate it!

You might want to pick a yr/mdl to be told where they are.

But here's what you Should know about the factory gauges, the information they show is NOT connected to any sensor. It is instead "interpreted" information sent by the trucks computer. The PCM brings the needles right into the center of the gauge (except fuel of course) and leaves it there despite a wide range of input from the sensor.

Basically they have 3 positions - Off - WIDE Range - WAY Too much. They are no more than Idiot Lights with a pointer In the case of the Trans Temp Gauge the needle doesn't react one bit to a 150 degree change!

It's all about limiting customers concerns Not feedback about your truck

What year/model F-350? Diesel or gas?
If you want the 6.0, that is REAL easy.
Click on the following link, download "the book" on the 6.0, model year 2003. It starts on page 90 (as the document is numbered).

EDIT: Your homework is already done in that book. You owe me a case of beer.

I'm downloading it! actually it doesn't matter the year or the model the only thing is that is has to be diesel and i have to build a diagram with all the sensors and indicators that any diesel truck has! so the first step is to know which sensors does the truck has?, the second step is to see if they go to the ECU and the ECU control them or if they are only informative (like speed, RPM, Gas level) things like that!...

I don't know if you guys can understand me cause i've been like 4 years without speaking any english hahaha!

Thank you, for all your help!

I am having trouble with a 2002 F250 powerstroke. This happens 99% of the time when it is raining but messed up on me today without it raining. The problem is my truck will lose power and start running very rough. I can shut it off and back on and sometimes it will be fine and not do it again other times it will just continue to lose power and run rough. I have taken it to two diffrent for shops. One changed out the harness that goes into the valve cover the module under the valve cover that regulates the oil presssure AND changed out injector drive module $2500 later and it still not fixed. they wanted to change out the gem module but decided to take it to another dealership. They found nothing. I will not leave a code so unless it dose it while they have the truck I AM SCREWED. ANY ideas
