F250 won't start

I know this is JF but i have a problem. My F250 lost all power in the cab. Only thing that works is the brake lights and my manual glow plug relay. I know that batteries are fully charged.

Any ideas?

Id start by poking around the fuse box with a multitester. Id guess it may be melty. Theres also some sort of connector that mounts on the front side of the fuse box and passes through the firewall.
also visit:
www.fordf150.net
or
www.fullsizebronco.com (97 or older 3/4T truck would be same as bronco m/l)

When you say batteries I am assuming your working on a diesel? I remember one time with a 6.0 Powerstroke I had the same symptoms but it was some fuse that went causing the issue. If it is a diesel go to www.powerstroke.org


Edit: Glow plug relay gives it away. I would go to the the powerstroke and do a quick search see what you can come up with.

Id visit fullsizebronco then. Mechanically they will be very close.
Id bet on a toasted bulkhead connector/fuse panel.

I asked on thedieselstop.com, but there is a lot more traffic here.

Check out Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums If they can't help then you will have to just junk it. The people there are as god with Ford trucks as the folks here are with jeeps.

Ford circled the problem (ex-Ford tech) I'd say fusible link.
