2002 F-350 SD 7.3 Dually Cluster completely dead...but....
The other day, my truck completely died, instrument cluster stopped
working, has all accessories and turns over, just doesn't fire. Had it at a
repair shop, and they told me that it keeps blowing a 30 amp fuse, and will
run, but the cluster is still dead. Said in order to get the issue resolved,
truck will need to be down about a week, and that the cluster needs to be
replaced and re-programmed to my truck with mileage and other crap, and
would cost around $1,000 all said and done.
My question is two fold...1) Can I drive the truck as it is, with a non
operational cluster, or will that 30 amp fuse still blow, 2) Has anyone ever
hear of that sort of diagnosis?
I have absolutely no idea if thats true, so any help would be great.
Do you know what number fuse kept blowing? Also alot of inputs run through the cluster on these trucks. I know they don't run if you take it out. It depends on how it's broken but it sounds like it will do the same thing again unless fixed.
