Found short. It was under dash; driver's side. I went to justanswer.com, and selected FORD and was assisted by Ron. I highly recommend Ron who was able to help me with a diagram that is not in Haynes book and was able to lead me while trying to find problem. A lot of communication back and forth for $18.00
This is what he told me to do: "Looking at the diagram ,the starter is the only thing on this circuit. If unplugging the Range sensor dosnt stop it from blowing the problem is in between the fuse and the range sensor, go one step further and locate the clutch pedal jumper under the dash and try disconnecting it and see if it still blows."
This confused me as my truck has an A/T. Ron clarified by saying: "Yes and that why it has the clutch over ride jumper . It would have a switch if it was a standard trans. Take a look at the diagram. It should be near the steering column, the best way to find it is with the white/pink wire where it connects to the pink wire to the range sensor."
So what Ron was referring to is under dash, tucked up high. I tried to take a couple of pictures, but I could not get a good one off.
On this picture you can see the bare section on the wht/pnk wire; far left. I am holding the "dead end" connector, as I call it. (it is capped)
On second picture you can see the whole connector; on the back side it has one of those plastic-push-in-screws; what happened was that it got loose and it was rubbing against parking cable. ( I think factory failed to secure it) I guess over the years it rubbed the insulation off the wht/pnk wire.
