7.3 diesel showing codes 0683,603,670,1000 the problem could be. ?

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I'm an independent contractor here at Just Answer.

Are there any vehicle symptoms as well?

Will it start and run?

What year?

What model vehicle?

Any aftermarket electronics used on the vehicle?

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

You should see a rating screen if I have posted an answer, not for an info request.

Your rating is my feedback. If I don't get feedback from customers, I will not be able to continue helping customers here.

Rating me good, bad, or not rating at all does not effect the fee you have paid nor does it close the post.

Follow up/Reply as many times as needed.

It starts and runs well
2000 excursion 240k miles
lots of aftermarkets

Thanks, ***** ***** tell me about the aftermarket electronic things on the vehicle? Anything that alters the way it runs?

No nothing


0683 most often means the glow plug control module is faulty.

0603 means the keep alive memory circuit to the PCM is faulty or the PCM is bad.

0670 same concern as code 0683

1000 means codes were recently cleared or the batteries were disconnected.

I am sending an offer that allows me to upload Ford diagnostic tests if you prefer to look at them.

Do you still need help on this concern?

I like to stay in contact with my customers that appear not pleased, still working on the concern, or have not rated yet. I assume you were not pleased with my help. I hate that you have spent money to get an answer but left not happy. Can you tell me why, or can I help more. If its more help you need just reply and we can pick up where we left off.

Thanks Chris
