sounds like wire harness problem or central juntion code is dealing with throttle actuator system and the other is a alternator circuit problem that probaly goes with the guages not working.

Need more info to try and help you. What engine size? (Gas or Diesel). Do you know what # fuse and amp size. You say no throttle power....does this this mean the engine will start and run but you have no power to accellerate RPMs?

Sorry I missed the info about the 7.3Diesel

These have a common problem with shorted wiring in steering column. Have found the wiring to the overdrive cancel switch shorting out in the column. These wires are Red/Yellow (from the fuse), Tan/White and White/Light Green on the harness side of the connector. It is quite common for a short to occur in these wires due to repeated movement of the shift lever.

Make sure you removed covers of steering column to inspect the wires if you have not already. The Central Junction Box could also be the problem.
Below is the way to detrmine if its bad.

1. Access the C270a connector of the CJB and check for power out of the CJB at terminal 8 of the connector which is the RD/YE wire feeding the APP sensor and cluster with the key in the run position.
C270a is a 24-terminal black connector of the cluster.

2. If there is no power on this circuit with power present at fuse 45, inspect the terminal of the connector to determine if there is a contact problem with the male pin of the CJB or if the wire is potentially broken in its contact to the terminal in the connector.

3. If the connector and terminal look to be OK, replace the CJB.

4. If power is found to be present on the RD/YE wire at the C270a connector, install a jumper between the circuit at this connection and run a patch wire to the RD/YE wire of the APP sensor to bypass the open in the circuit. If necessary, a patch circuit may also need to be run to the cluster connection.

the problem is the shift lever. it has the wires running through it for the overdrive switch. they chaffe at the tube where they come out. replace shift lever and fuse. should take care of it.
