overdrive/fuse issue

Help wanted!!!!

Several weeks ago the (Ignition switch run start feed---10AMP) fuse started blowing each time the overdrive button is pushed. It seems to be related to heat since it does not blow before transmission use each day.

The pickup is a 2004 F250 with a 5.4 liter engine with about 60,000 miles.

Any and all help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Jim Tierce

Re: overdrive/fuse issue

Did you ever figure this out?

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

Re: overdrive/fuse issue

Check the O/D cancel switch wiring on both of yours. It runs from the handle down the top of the column and then finally curves down to the connector and the main harness. The usual chaffe points is where the wire goes into the handle and any part of the wire that is excess before it clips into the top of the column. I have run into many all on the f series, look very closely it may be hard to see.

Re: overdrive/fuse issue

Thanks bud I owe you a beer!

Took the colum cover 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!

Thanks buddy! Now time to .......

Re: overdrive/fuse issue

Hi Guys,

We got a chance to look at the problem and the wires were shorted as you indicated. Many thanks for the proper suggestion.

I will also offer to buy you a beer provided you are of age and suffering no ill effects from the last beer offer.

Thanks sincerely
