Ford: I have a 1999 Ford F250 5.4 liter compressed natural

Customer Question

I have a 1999 Ford F250 5.4 liter compressed natural gas pickup that just quit while driving down the road. I quickly ascertained with a can of starter fluid that the vehicle would start when feed fuel. Therefore I knew the fuel from the half full tanks (2 in the bed and one underneath) had gotten shut off someway. I suspected a fuse, but when checking them there were none listed in the owners manual that showed one for the fuel tank shut off solenoids. There was a fuse shown for a "fuel pump" (which the truck does not have) and its position in the fuse panel was filled! i pulled it and it was BLOWN. I replaced it and started the truck. It ran a few seconds and shut off again. I rechecked the fuse and it was BLOWN AGAIN. Obviously there is a short in that circuit somewhere. My problem is that I can't find a wiring diagram or schematic anywhere that shows this circuit. If I had one, I think I could find the short. Most likely in one of the three fuel tank shut off solenoids, since I have not bothered any of the wiring. The truck has worked perfectly for the 6 years I've owned it.
Can you help?
