Last Labor day my truck just would not start. It would crank good and hard but would not fire up.

Through some "internet searching" I found that this was a common failure and that it was caused by overheating to fuse #27 (fuel pump) slot itself that fried the fuse and the socket as well.

I pulled fuse #27 replaced the fuse in the same slightly melted socket and it fired up and has run flawlessly until now.
Last night I left the keys in the ignition and in the "acc" position. Battery was drained but even with a jump it cranks but will not fire again (it sounds exactly like it did when the fuse melted).

I replaced the fuse, no joy.

I seem to recall hearing that Ford made a "Fuse Re-Route Kit" to somehow "move" fuse #27 from that slot into one of the spare slots in the box.

Thing is I cannot find word one about this re-route kit. Starting to think I imagined it. Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, I think the fuse slot it over heated beyond repair which is causing the issue. You will need to bypass the wiring into your own fuse holder outside the PDC. Here is the fuel pump wiring diagrams so you can see what color wires to cut and splice. I show it as fuse #32 though?

Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what happens.

Cheers, Ken

The kit from Ford is around twenty dollars and basically adds a more robust (their words not mine) pin and fuse. You will pretty much relocate it to where the square fuses are. Ken is also correct but If you want it to look stock, and for $20.00 I would use the Ford kit. And anything for $20.00 at a dealer is amazing in itself, lol.
