marcpod :

sounds like to me there may be a short behind the instrument cluster or in the steering column.

Check that wiring on the fuel pump make sure everything is good to go. Again it sounds like its in the instrument cluster.

That's a pretty broad statement. I figured that already....a short / no ground somehwere. Although a short should have blown the fuse right? A faulty ground is more likely correct? Now, what I need to know is the process to track the ground/short. Readings at the tank are good. I had seen similar posts/problems on a ford forum...are you aware of this being "oh, those trucks have a history - look at the connections at..."

That was a prior issue with the elec seat and mirrors inop. in the harness, factory just did a splice and it got corroded. found that right under passanger door jamb. but it was common knowledge of problem / solution
