Changing the interior map light


The bulbs is replaced from the back of the overhead console with 1/4 turn bulb holders.

the overhead console ( non rail version ) is held up with spring clips.

Open the rear compartment, and grab the rear corners and pull down 1 at a time. They are very hard to pull the 1st few times. Once you have the read released, there is another set of spring clips in the front, so be careful how far down you pull the rear, until the front is released.

Once you can see the back of the overhead console, you will see the 1/4 turn bulb holders for the map and interior lights.

Replacing the front dome light


The front dome lamp & map lamps are replaced from the back, they are 1/4 turn bulb holders.

The overhead console ( non rail ) is held on with spring clips. Open the rear compartment, and in each corner grab the console with your thumb and index finger and pull down. The 1st time you remove it, it is very hard to pull down, the springs are very stiff.

The rail system, the service manual says to pull the overhead bins 1st, then pull the consoles out ( also spring clips )

Have a 03 F150 w/moonroof and the compass/temp display has gone out. OEM is not cheap. Any replacement suggestions


It is actually 1 or 2 resistors that have come unsoldered.

If you have a fine point soldering iron, you can repair it. Might want to stop by Radio Shack or the likes and pick up 2 or 3 58 ohm resistors.

Remove the screw from the bottom of the overhead console, and pull down to release the spring clips.

Unscrew the PC Board from the housing, and look at the surface mounted resistors ( they should be marked 580 on them ).

This is what I am talking about on a SuperDuty over head console ( this has 62 ohm resistors / marked 620 )

Pat on F150online.com did a nice write up on this for a F-150 overhead console ( I never got around to taking pictures of a F-150, only the SuperDuty Console ).
Check the Technical Articles / How To forum for a thread titled overhead console repair ( think that is it ).

2004 f150 dome light with center roof rails, how do you replace the light bulb on the drivers side. This is the type that you push on and push off.


Double check, the rail system roof console should be held on with just spring clips ( check for a screw facing down, or to the side, pull out the rail accessory boxes to be sure ).

If so, start on one side with a hook plastic trim tool and pull down to release the spring clip, and work your way around.

On the back of the roof console the bulbs are installed in 1/4 turn bulb holders, remove form the back to replace the bulb.

How do I remove the overhead console in my Ford 1-50 to change a light bulb. I ordered the bulb from the Ford house, but they want a small fortune to replace the bulb


With the overhead console ( non rail system ), open the sun glass bin, and grab each corner in the back, and pull down.

The overhead is held on with 4 or 6 spring clips, and pulls straight down.

The bulbs are 1/4 twist sockets installed from the back of the overhead console.

2002 F-150 supercrew My coumpas-outside tem.quti working.Were is the fuse?


The overhead display is powered by the same circuit for the overhead console, so if the vanity mirrors still work, chances are the fuse is fine.

Just in case, push the button a few times, to make sure the display is not turned off.
The overhead displays have a chance of the surface mounted resistors becoming unsoldered over time.
You can get one at a junk yard, or if you are good with a soldering iron, you can reattach the surface mounted resistors. Pull the overhead console down, and remove the display ( T10 screws holding the display to the console ). There are 2 plastic tabs holding the display together, release these.
On the back of the circuit board, you are looking for a resistor that looks like this :

How to remove map light cover


The map light cover is part of the over head console.

For the non overhead rail system, open the rear compartment, and grab in the rear corners, pulling down. 4 or 6 spring clips hold it up.
1st time is the hardest to get it down, part spring tension, part worried about breaking something. It is a hard pull, but will come down.

Once you have the overhead console down, you will see the gray 1/4 turn bulb holders installed from the back. These are 2 element bulbs, take one with to the parts sore.

How do I change out the dome lite on my 2005 150 king ranch


For a 2005 MY F-150 :
The rear ( if SCab or SuperCrew ) there is a little notch in the lens that is used to push in a tab and lower that side, slide out from the back.

The front, non rail system is open the rear sunlgasses compartment, and grab each corner. Pull down, there is 4 or 6 spring clips that hold the overhead console to the roof. Once down, you will see the gray bulb holders. Twist out the bulb holder, and the bulb plugs into the holder. They are 2 element over sized 194 type bulbs ( think it is a 39 or 67 ??? not sure on that ).
Rail system is slightly different

HOW DO YOU REMOVE FRONT DOME-MAP LIGHT HOUSING


For the non rail system overhead console :

There are spring clips holding the console to the roof.

Open the compartment, and grasp each corner, and pull down. This will take a moderate amount of pull to release the spring clips.

There are 4 or 6 spring clips holding the console to the ceiling, at the least the center spring clips will release when you pull down on the rear.
remove the front held in place by the spring clips. There are 2 connectors for the overhead console, these have ~ 6" if slack in them.

From this point, you can remove the connectors, or you will see the gray bulb holders for the map / interior lamps. These are 1/4 twist bulb holders.
