Ford F53 2013 chassis manual and/or wiring diagrams

Due to some problems with turn signal wiring (described in another thread), I have a need to find schematics for my 2013 Ford F53 stripped chassis. I searched online, and find various sources, from ebay to "tradebit.com" to "faxonautoliterature.com" at widely varying prices ($17.95 - $229). Any opinions out there on the best legitimate source for this information? Traditional places like "helminc.com" don't have the 2013 manual, and "motorcraftservice.com" seems to only sell access by subscription (72 hour, month, year access).

Thanks, Davidjeff, for digging those up, but I do have the schematics for the turn signal problem.

What I was looking for in this post were recommendations on where to find the *whole set* of schematics and service information for my F53. I would like to have this information in case of future problems.

Where did you get the schematics you found? Do you have the complete set? Where did you find or purchase them?

I am and have been a Ford tech for 30+ years. I have access to a lot of Ford info that is not easily accessible to the public. Helm used to be Fords publisher but I'm not sure now,
Here are pics of your info

Accessing online I can pull F53 RV for schematics but we don't seem to have a dedicated wiring schematic printed book unless it is the same as the F 550-650 which could be very likely. I know for warranty purposes our warranty administrator goes by the F550-650 time studies for flagging our time as outlined in the policy manual.. Strange though the online also has F550-650 as well.
The wiring schematic book for F550-650 covers the entire vehicle including connectors, pinouts, locations etc... very intensive and complete.

I just today got my cd from rock auto for my 2000 f53 chassis. 24 bucks, over 6,000 pages in pdf format. Full wiring diagram.

I bought a 72 hour subscription and downloaded everything I could for my VIN number. I spent hours doing this, and if I remember correctly, the site was NOT user friendly, and each diagram needed to downloaded separately (like about 100 of them)

If Rock Auto sells a CD, that would be the way to go. EricV - I looked on the Rock auto site - Can you give a link to where the manuals are at?

I bought an official Ford DVD off eBay for about $40. I looked yesterday, and there are still some available, but only for model years 2005-2006. Some information will apply to a 2013. If I had a 2013, I'd keep looking.

Looks like they don't offer a CD newer than 2000, it's listed under Literature

I also purchased a Ford service manual CD for our 2013 chassis on e bay. As mentioned they usually go for between $25.00 and $50.00. I would keep looking since they "expire" every 90 days. By expiring I mean the cd is dated and will not operate unless the computer's calendar is between the specified start and end dates.

Ours expiration date is set for May 2 2013 so I have to reset the computer calendar between March 2 2013 and May 2 2013 for it to work. That's fine for a DIY situation, but it wouldn't work well in a commercial repair shop.

Also keep in mind there are several editions of the Ford service cd's. You'll need one that includes the heavy duty trucks. Make sure it says on the cd it includes the F53 chassis.

There are several available on e bay, but the prices are ridiculous. One vendor is asking nearly $300.00 for them. To top it off he doesn't mention that they are time sensitive, or offer the start and stop date.

Since they are replaced every 90 days I would expect to see them available on a regular basis.

I found a several online listings for the printed paper manual "2013 Ford F-250, F-350, F-450 & F-550 Truck Factory Wiring Diagrams" from various sources. I have ordered a copy ($79+shipping) from the site: "www.AutoRepairManuals.biz". Hopefully this covers the F53 stripped chassis as well.
