I have a 2002 7.3 that blows the fuse that controls the dash cluster and shuts off the turbo. I experience this problem when I shift from drive to revers every 2-3 weeks.

I have checked all external bulbs, etc for bad wiring. I even upped the fuse from 15 amp to 30, which I know is not the best solution, and it keeps blowing.

Please help!

First off how does this shut off the turbo. The turbo is operated by exhaust gas flow. So unless your whole truck is shutting down when this fuse blows your turbo is still working.

Being this is happening when you shift gears I would look for a short in the steering column, or in the transmission wiring harness. Check and see what other circuits are on that fuse. You can find this out by looking in the owners manual under roadside repair section.
