    I have a 1998 e350 7.3 psd and the #6 fuse keeps blowing here's what I have done to it so far. I have changed the fuel pump because the neg side term was very rust and I couldnt clean it up. And it still pops the fuse. I also changed the solenoid for the glow plugs and still no go. I also try to change the urn and when I unplug it (idm) I also noticed the the check engine light is out and the wait to start
    Light is also out for the glow plugs I have no power to the fuel pump. What hand was I was at an idle in a drive way and it died and when I went to start it all this stuff happens. And the back up lights stopped working a few days before this and the bulbs are good. I would like so help please.

    remove the fuel filter and check the fuel heater element at the bottom of the housing,it is probably floating loose and shorting out.just unplug it and be on your way you dont need the heater with treated fuel.
