Question Fuse 22 in Power Distribution Box

I have a 97 Powerstroke. Yesterday the rig started ran for about 4 seconds then died. I found fuse 22 was blown. Replaced the fuse twice and the fuse has blown both times. Any suggestions.

fuel heater short? unplug it and try fuse again. My memory is not great, but i think 22 is the fuel heater and some other junk.

Unplug the fuel heater wire that attachés to the fuel filter housing. It is a spade type connector on the side of the filter housing. The heater itself is on the bottom of the filter housing and will warm the fuel to help prevent gelling. If you are in a warm climate you really do not need it.

Still won't start

I unplugged the fuel heater wire and that fixed the fuse blowing issue, but it will not start. It is currently 35 degrees Fahrenheit. It isn't too cold is it? Should I plug it in? Any more suggestions, I appreciate the help.

It should be ok at 35. How are your batteries after you tried to start when you were blowing the fuse, also are you getting the wait to start light? Where the batteries are concerned these trucks need a lot of power to fire up so you might need to put them on a charger.

The wait to start light is coming on. I will check the batteries, but they sound like they have plenty of juice. In fact the fuse was blowing prior to me trying to turn the engine over. It would blow the fuse when I turned the ingnition to the position that engages the wait to start light.

Before the fuse blew...were you having cold start problems? If you have been trying to start it for a while with no luck...check your oil levels...both the engine oil and HPOP oil level. Make sure they are both full. If you plug it in for 2-3 hours and it starts normal then you most likely have something wrong in the GP system...either the plugs, relay, batteries or starter motor.

I was unable to get the engine to start, so I ended up taking it to a diesel mech.

Thanks for all the help.......
