2003 7.3 ltr. the radio,dome and windows stop working. There is no apparent "outside" factors such terrain or precipitation that instigates this fault. sometimes power returns with in a few minutes, sometimes an hour. any suggestions.

check your GEM module, do a search, somewhere I have the info regarding a small leak that gets the back of this unit wet, causing all kinds of weird electrical problems.. on fords, escorts, lincoln navigators, etc..if I find it, will post the info.. ah.. right after typing this, went to the previous page, and wa-la.. there it is.. all about the GEM module..

I know that it has been a while since this was posted, but I am going through the same problem with my 94 f150. It has a 4.9 with an A4OD and has approx 135000 miles. I am into my third PCM. The shop just says, yep there must be something else wrong, but offers no suggestions. How did you fix yours. Any ideas anyone?

Was there any underlying faults to the vehicle prior to any of the PCM's going out, stalling, not starting, anything like that? you weren't unplugging it and plugging it back in, with the ignition on, were you?

By the way, how long did the PCM's last?

Anyone had this issue? My check engine light came on, so I took it to the dealership. They hooked it up and the code picked up indicated that someone installed a performance chip or tried to modify the programming. I've NEVER hooked up any chip or tried to modify the PCM in any way. When I told the service advisor this, he basically called me a liar and said I would have to pay for a new PCM at about $1000! Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
#121 of 131 starving for fuel and speedo going crazy
Jan 25, 2011 (5:29 pm)
My 200 F350 with 7.3 is giving me issues. The truck was losing power and wanting to die at any rpm above 2000, so i checked and replaced the fuel filter. ran fine for about 1 month started again figured i had some trash in fuel replaced filter. problem is this time white smoke like it starving for fuel and then it will clear up and can go down road then check engine light will come on and truck starts sputtring and white smoke again and speedo starts jumping up and down about 10 to 15 mph, just dont have any other ideas need help.
