Im going to switch to the question and answer section because itlooks like you are not online right now. We can communicate back and forth this way.

Hi Iam concerned about fues 45, lets recheck it to verify its ok. It should power going in and out of the fuse. Here is the fuse #45 details.


F2.45 10A Overdrive cancel switch (7G550), Accelerator pedal position sensor, Four- wheel drive control module, Instrument cluster - Excursion Clutch pedal position switch, Auxiliary Powertrain Control Module (APCM), Accelerator pedal position sensor, Overdrive cancel switch (7G550), Four- wheel drive control module, Instrument cluster - Pickup


Commonly this fuse blows due to a short in the shifter directly on top of the steering column. When the shiter (power to the o/d cancel) shorts out it blows the fuse and then supplies no power to the shifter, Accelerator pedal, 4x4 module and Instrument cluster. This would explain all your issues, if the fuse is blown I recommend checking the harnes for the shifter and repalce it as neccesary. Look closely, sometimes all it takes is alittle pinhole size short that is hard to see.
