I ended up replacing a fuse… Check your fuses again because the parking lights and dash lights often share the same fuse; that is why they both quit. Power comes off starter motor relay on the right side engine compartment. Each Relay has several terminals within it and half could be burned out while the other half of the Relay can still work. Aftermarket Ford F350 dash panels are available in a host of different colors, styles and finishes to accommodate virtually every taste. If they are good, then check for voltage from the headlight switch. I think the fuse is in the engine compartment fuse box but your owners manual would tell you for sure.
If it has gone bad, that could cause them all to stop working. Jan 10, 2011 I have seen multiple trucks with similar fuse blowing problem and have found most are caused by a shorted out overdrive switch or wiring inside the steering column. Check your power to the fuse panel. Hope this works for others. There is a brown wire coming from that module that controls the tail lights, licence plate lights, and running lights. Most people think that they have to live with this problem, but fortunately many aftermarket companies make replacement Ford F350 dash panels so that you can restore your interior to stellar condition.
My 2002 F350 keeps blowing fuse 45. At 12:45, we install our GlowShift gauge pod. The clusters feature all-new stepper motors using the latest upgraded designs and have all-new backlight bulbs. That also suggests that it will be pretty close to the main switch. Restores gauges to proper operation and ensures accurate readings.
Valid on orders shipped in the contiguous United States. If you have voltage into the dasboard circuit, you probably still have a bad switch… Answer it could be because one of your tail lights, brake lights, reverse lights, etc. Bring your vehicle to a professional as soon as possible. You need to know if that circuit has power with the key switch on. Had to remove the keft kick panel and there was a yellow wire coming from the lower harness up toward the dash.
It turned out to be the wiring harnes for the shift lever. My F250 has been blowing the instrument panel fuse. Posted on Dec 09, 2016 check your alternator if it is charging service your fuel filter drain the water with the yellow tab make sure you didnt put regular gasoline in it. If your lights come on, then for sure it is the light control… If the fuses are all good which, I bet they are , you most likely have a faulty dimmer control.

It took them two tries, but they finally figured it out.
Fixya is all internet and I would not know the other mechanic to say anything about your case. Your dash board is the centerpiece of your interior. Almost all the dash and interior trim lights are wired through this switch to allow you to dim them. Your computer brain in your truck is messing up take it to a mechanic is my advice. Turned out to be a wire getting pinched btween the emergency brake lever and the release stop. If only a portion of your instrument panel is functioning, such as your lights work while the speedometer does not, get your car to a pro. There is a light sensor on your dash that knows when it get dark.
If the brake lights are independent of the turn signals then disregard the switch problem. Treat your interior right with a brand new dash panel. Had to have it towed to another dealership, and found out it was the instrument panel fuse. Not sure I even understand what you are asking,but, If its what I think , its just a matter of turning on your lights. Please refer to the core return instructions included with the part or contact customer service for more details.
You can receive a refund by returning a suitable old core. Dashboard and running lights usually have a different input and the headlights can work if the dash doesn't.
