Hi, I am new to this site so I don't know if I'm in the right place. I have a 95 7.3 f350, I have power to everything on the inside of the truck, but when I turn the key to the on position the dash icons and wait to start light comes on for a split sec then I loose power to everything in the truck, if I undo the positive battery cable on the passenger side and then put it back on I have power and it will start. but turn it off and try again the same thing will happen and you have to repeat the process. but it is not an every time occurance. it is getting old so any help will be appreciated.
Thanks

There is a section for the 94-97s a little bit further down.

It sounds like you have bad batteries and a possible cable problem. The batteries are wired in parallel which means + to + and - to - and if disconnecting the one of the passenger side does weird things to the lights and what not it sounds like the one on the drivers side is dead. I would pull them and put both of them on a charger for a day and then have them tested.
