At this point, my radio lights started working, but none of the others. The dimmer switch works with the radio lights and the overhead ouside temp lights. What could my problem be?

Dash lights not working


check your dash light fuse. It is called an instrument cluster light fuse.
your ford parts department will tell you the location of your fuse box and what the symbol for the dash light fuse looks like.

No power to ignition or dash or anything but do have interior lights. no clicking and no reactions when key turned. same when i try to jump start it.


First check your fuse box and make sure you don't have blown fuses. If that doesn't tell you anything, you need to check if you are getting 12V to your PCM.

If the manual fails to include or mention certain items for a problem, it would be best to go to the fuse boxes. Normally a blown fuse is caused by a short after the main fuse. So this means you may will have to check the fuses individually. The fuses are normally located under the dash on the driver side. The cover would have its own labels for you to identify which fuse are found inside the box.

The dash lights keep shutting off while i am


The brake and dash lamps are often fed through the same fuse. Try reseating the fuse or swap it with another of the same rating in the fuse panel.
