zombie_slayer Thank you guys very much

drinkypoo apparently they're requiring approval now. it sure would be nice if senior members could post without approval, but maybe one of them posted some porn

anyway when it gets approved see TheDieselStop.Com Photo Hosting - 1992 F-Series Warning Indicators for wiring...

zombie_slayer yeah it must be an issue with a grounded wire. ive tried everything else. by any chance do you guys happen to know what color wires and which harness they are in. I believe there are two harnesses that go thru the firewall.

on a side note... do uploaded pictures have to get approved on here. i uploaded some of my truck but dont see them in the gallery? thanks

Devdg yeah sounds like you might have a ground issue in your wiring harness.

drinkypoo the lights ground to activate. disconnect them when they light and see if they still light. if they do you have a short to ground.

zombie_slayer yes the wts light is bright and crisp before starting. afterwards it is dim but on, same with the wif light. i did check the wire on the filter right away... it is attached and tight.

i forgot to mention that about half the time when the engine is warm the lights dont come on for the first few minutes. ill look over occasionally and notice them on while driving.

Devdg double check the wire connections at the alt and the fuel filter you might have accidentily bumped it and it is making a ground and the WIF light is turning on because of that. also the little piece of plastic beween the bulbs could be missing causing a false wait to start light typically it only is lit when the glowplug controller is working, I assume that it is brightly lit when you go to start the truck.

wait to start and water in fuel stay on after start

hey guys im new to this site. ive used your forums to answer some of my problems in the past, so i was hoping you can help me out with this one.

i have a 92 f350 dually. 7.3 non-turbo, auto 2wd

i just recently installed a new alternator and ever since then when i start my truck my wif and wts lights glow at about 50% brightness and my amp/volt gauge stays high. (at the "a" or "l")

the truck starts fine as usual in warm days and really cold days (35-70 degress)

any help would be great, thanks.
