2005 f150 4x4 power windows ,interior lights a/c ,radio gauges are not working fuses are ok and already check for voltage and it has but still not working . It has something else in betwen..?......


Checked voltage where ?
The instrument control module (ICM) controls power to the power window system by activating or deactivating the delayed accessory relay.
Symptom Chart Condition Possible Sources Action
  • All power windows are inoperative
  • Fuse(s).
  • Circuitry.
  • Instrument cluster module (ICM).
  • Accessory delay relay.
  • Driver window control switch.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test A .
Vehicles equipped with remote keyless entry (RKE) have an illuminated entry feature, which enables the instrument cluster module (ICM) to illuminate the interior lamps (and if equipped, the puddle lamps in the exterior mirrors) when an unlock signal is received from the vehicle security module through the UBP network, or when any of the doors are opened. The ICM controls the interior lamps illuminated entry feature by activating the battery saver relay. When active, the illuminated entry feature will be canceled when any of the following conditions are met:

I have an 06 ford explorer the instrument cluster lights and radio lights don't work


Are these the lights you are talking about ?
Instrument Cluster and Panel Illumination The instrument cluster and panel illumination is used to provide backlighting to the instrument panel, switches, and control components when the headlamp switch is in either the PARKING LAMPS ON or HEADLAMPS ON position. The level of intensity is adjustable by rotating the instrument panel dimmer switch either up to increase intensity or down to decrease intensity.
Fixed Backlighting When the accessory delay relay is energized, switched voltage is supplied to the non-dimmable components and switches.
Dimmable Backlighting When the parking lamps or the headlamps are in the ON position the smart junction box (SJB) monitors the input from the instrument panel dimmer switch. The SJB sends a pulse-width modulated (PWM) voltage to the dimmable components and switches based on input received from the instrument panel dimmer switch. The SJB also sends a message over the controller area network (CAN) to the audio unit, and the instrument cluster to indicate the backlighting intensity level.
If you don't know about PWM an smart junction box your better off taking your vehicle to a quailified repair shop ! You don't the diagnostic tools or technical information . May have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the SJB (computer ). Do you know where SJB is located ?
Visual Inspection Chart Electrical
  • Smart junction box (SJB) fuse 23 (15A)
  • Bulb(s)
  • Circuitry
  • Connectors
  • Illumination source(s)
  • Auxiliary climate control switches (if equipped)
  • Door lock control switches
  • Window control switches
  • Headlamp switch
  • Dual electronic automatic temperature control (DEATC) module
  • Audio unit
  • SJB
  • Instrument cluster

  1. If an obvious cause for an observed or reported concern is found, correct the cause (if possible) before proceeding to the next step.
  1. If the cause is not visually evident, connect the diagnostic tool to the data link connector (DLC) and select the vehicle to be tested from the diagnostic tool menu. If the diagnostic tool does not communicate with the vehicle:
  • check that the program card is correctly installed.
  • check the connections to the vehicle.
  • check the ignition switch position.
  1. If the diagnostic tool still does not communicate with the vehicle, refer to the diagnostic tool operating manual.
  1. Carry out the diagnostic tool data link test. If the diagnostic tool responds with:
  • CAN circuits fault; all electronic control units no response/not equipped, refer to Section 418-00 .
  • No response/not equipped for SJB, refer to Section 419-10 .
  • System passed, retrieve and record the continuous diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), erase the continuous DTCs, and carry out the self-test diagnostics for the SJB.
  1. If the DTCs retrieved are related to the concern, go to the Smart Junction Box (SJB) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index.
  1. If no DTCs related to the concern are retrieved, GO to Symptom Chart .
    • The control illumination is inoperative

    • Smart junction box (SJB)
    • Go To Pinpoint Test A .
    • The instrument cluster illumination is inoperative
    • Instrument cluster
    • CHECK the audio unit illumination for correct operation.
      • If the audio unit illumination operates correctly, INSTALL a new instrument cluster. REFER to Section 413-01 . TEST the system for normal operation.
      • If the audio unit illumination does not operate correctly, REFER to Section 418-00 to continue diagnosis of the communications network.
    • The audio unit illumination is inoperative
    • Audio unit
    • CHECK the instrument cluster illumination for correct operation.
      • If the instrument cluster illumination operates correctly, REMOVE the audio unit. REFER to Section 415-01 . SEND it to an authorized repair facility. TEST the system for normal operation after the repair.
      • If the instrument cluster illumination does not operate correctly, REFER to Section 418-00 to continue diagnosis of the communications network.

Where is the instrument panel relay located?


There is no relay for the instrument panel. The dash lights and interior lights have fuses. The instrument panel itself is illuminated by the Central Power Module.

Will not shift into gear from park with motor running, also cab lights and electric windows not working. Will start from neutral and then shift into gears.


Might want to start with checking your stop lamps & the fuse for the stop lamps.

The shift interlock is part of the stop lamp circuit on the 97-03 MY trucks, and without working stop lamps, the truck does not come out of park,

Not too sure what you mean by cab lights, is this the interior dome lamps or the instrumentation illumination ?

I have a 2004 sebring that i bought new. the instrument cluster lights dont work, i checked interior fuses number 7 and 11 that relate to the instrument cluster illumination. they seem to be fine.


If the fuses are good there should be a dial that adjusts the brightness of the dash panel.If this dial doesn't work then the bulbs for the dash panel might be blown out.

Dash lights & tail lights are not working but every thing else is need help to locate fuse for it 2002 ford f150


The parking lamp circuit feeds the instrument illumination fuse

The parking lamp fuse is engine compartment Fuse # 6
After the main headlamp switch the cab fuse panel fuse # 18 is the fuse for the instrument illumination.

Don't forget to turn the main headlamp switch to at least the park position when you test the fuse with a meter.

Digital odometer barely illuminates and is about


First thing to check is the interior light / dome light control. It is usually located to the left of your instrument panel (where your odometer is located). It you move this dial up or down it will control the intensity of interior lighting.

However, if that does not cure the issue, it is possible that you have a short somewhere, or a bad bulb for the instrument panel. At that point, I'd take it to your local repair facility and have them check it out. Changing interior lighting or testing for electrical failures can be a difficult task.

No illuminate lights in the instrument cluster


There are 2 diodes in the underhood fuse box (diodes look like black fuses) one of those diodes is blown, there is a spare diode in the interior fuse panel. Remove that spare and swap it with both of the ones under the hood.

Map light fuse on 2008 f 350????


The interior map lamps are powered buy the battery saver relay ( non serviceable relay ) Which is powered by Fuse #25 ( cab fuse panel ).
This is for the engine compartment and illuminated vanity lamps, as well as the map lights.

The FET ( Field-Effect Transistor ) shows the fuse #9 also on it. ( marked interior lighting ), which power the interior lamps ( door / switch ).

Could be a few things if both those fuses are OK.

1. The map / interior lamp combos are usually dual element bulbs, which means if the interior lamps ( door or dimer switch on headlamp panel ) are OK, it could still be a burn out bulb.

2. The FET is having an issue from a dead short ( blown bulb or dead short to ground ). Until the short is correct, the FET will not turn back on.

Start with checking Fuse #9 ( marked as Fuse #8 in the diagram, but that shows headlamp ), which is to the interior lamps, and drives 1 side of the FET.
