2008 f350 diesel. Keeps blowing fuse 27 in the cab
JA: Do all the fuses have the correct amperage for the circuits they're in?
Customer: They did. I pulled out fuse 28, 43, 45 and under the hood relay 57 and when i turn key forward it lasts about one second
JA: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Thats about the most i have done. It first died when i was backing up went forward about 30 feet put into reverse made it about 7 feet. Before that truck sat idling for an hour and a half
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Im cold as *#~^ and far from anything

Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 20 days ago

Fuse 27 feeds several other fused circuits, if there was a problem with them the other circuits, the other fuses should have blown, since it is 27 I suspect a wiring short either from the smart junction box to the ignition switch, or the feed wire that goes out under the hood for the relay. I am suspecting the white with orange wire from the ignition switch may be grounded, the only way to find a short like this is start removing circuits one at a time until the fuse doesn't blow. Here is a diagram.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
