2002 F-350 Ignition run/start feed fuse blowing

I have a 2002 F-350 that is having the same problem, It looks like its a short in the steering colum somewhere but unable to find it.

Did you figure it out, if so please let me know, when the fuse blows #45
Ignition run/start feed 10a, it kills the gas pedal and the intrument cluster.
but still runs.


HELP!
thx DELRUS

Took the colum covers off and that o/d wire coming out of the gear shift(auto)
had been rubbing after years of Park to Drive and sure enough 1 wire out of three had no insulation on it at the 90 degree bend.

That wire was a direct short and causing the fuse to blow, and that explains why it was so intermittent. The wire had to be in the right place to short, thank god it was in the right place to get me home from the coast last weekend!
