So my turn signals quit working right. After a quick diagnosis, it looked like the column TS switch was bad. Ordered a new one and went to install it today...

Turned out the connector at the switch was bad! It wasn't holding the wires into the switch, and the wires backed out.

Someone had been in there prior to me and had broken the tabs off the connector. Idiots.

Fixed for now, but I'll now have to replace the connector.

This is the THIRD freaking time in twenty years, I've had to work on this truck!!!

What a pile. ๐Ÿ˜

Just make sure yore emergency flashers work. That's the most common thing needed with a Ford ;)

If you had got the gas version rather than the 7.3 the turn signal would still be working correctly. ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ‘

I still kinda regret selling my very slightly rotted out 2001 7.3 to my buddies kid 3 yrs ago with 244K miles for $5K. My maintenace was not unlike yours. Bulletproof truck that I could have traded for a small condo today, lol. Or driven to 500K+

I thought all you Cali folks get a new truck every year or at least when your neighbor gets one.

Obviously you never drove a 6.2 or a 6.9.๐Ÿ˜‚

I have. But I donโ€™t see people humping their legs


I have a class A and anything made by international is basically huge chunk of shit.

Lol true but my 2020 LT doesnโ€™t even want to have a international under the hood. Thank god the tractor has a x15 Cumming so least when it breaks itโ€™s not the Cummins fault lol

About as ridiculous as putting jet bote and fast in the same sentence.
Iโ€™m still kicking myself for selling my 7.3, should have kept it and put a truck camper on it.

Oh don't worry...

He will be along any minute to tell us about his wicked fast jet bote! That is if he ever gets it running. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Wait how is my jet botรซ getting dragged into that a 7.3 is an over rated turd.
