Default Fathers 2000 PSD

Been tinkering on the 7.3, getting some of the little issues wrapped up, such as the vacuum to the hubs being lost causing his climate control to be stuck at defrost. Probably over working that little vacuum pump too.


Next (last?) problem this year is the radio has gone butt whacky, I haven't seen it turn itself on in months now. In those months its probably been driven 4 times...

Anywho, the radio was last seen acting intermittently, shutting off/turning on completely randomly. I've taken it out before and looked for a problem at the connections to the radio its self, nothing offered a solution.



Is there a common issue?
How can I find out if the radio unit its self is just bad?

could be a bad internal connection or at the connector
unplug the connector and straight wire it to a 12V source and ground

Ok the radio take the radio out . and you will need to remove the face of the radio once you have removed it you will see how the faceplate gets power clean those contact points and put it back together . if that doesnt fix it then its the elec board inside the face plate . thats about 100 bucks at that point i would go after market 150 bucks will get you a nice kenwood head unit ..
hope this helps you

Klitch im very glad you mentioned that lil bit about the vacuum lines to the hubs. Mine are out and just recently the air will only blow from the defrost. Is there any other issues that loss of vacuum can cause cause I can tell you right now it doesnt seem like the turbo has been running up to par.


Have you donated to FordTruckClub.net yet? I have!

its the circuit board for the faceplate that has the issue? I've had it down to the main board under the cd/casette. I couldnt find any obvious needs for repairs there.

Unfortunately my father is a fan of keeping everything stock because the new replacement stuff has too many functions for him...

I haven't traced all of the vacuum lines, but what I seen was from the vac reservoir you have the line for the vacuum pump, then the other line comes up to a Tee, which then directly routes to the climate control while the other direction hits the 4x4 solenoid on the fender. I did not see a vacuum for anything else associated with that vac pump/res.

For the radio, you might try looking at the fuse. On my old '98 I had a very expensive aftermarket stereo that would turn on and off intermittently. I messed with it for probly 1 1/2 years before I figured out that an add-a-fuse I had used to power my satellite radio when I had the stock stereo had streched the prongs of the fuse holder apart and the fuse would make contact sometimes and wouldn't others. This may or may not be the case since he likes to keep things stock, but it's something else to check. Also, you might think about checking ebay or a junkyard for a stock replacement. I have one for an '06 but doubt it would work or you could have it...
