Question about 1986 Ford Thunderbird
No stereo or dash lights. Already changed fuses
There are 2 fuses boxes in cab and 1 in engine bay
we test the fuses, we dont change them out willy nilly.
even better, is to measure the voltage at at the radio.
the power pin is 12vdc, keyon
if not the fuse is blown or the wire is cut.
my guess is car wiring was hacked long ago with stereo upgrades
or other hacks, (alarms,etc)
old cars are like that, hacked.

If you pull out your gauge cluster,behind it you will find the bulbs for the dash lights.
might be the problem...7mm socket and extension required..

SOURCE: I HAVE CHANGED THE ALTERNATOR,
You may have a faulty ground wire from the battery to the grounding source (usually fender wall or engine block)corrosion on the wire will cause a bad ground source, other probable cause are a week battery or a broken connection in the wire from the alternator to the ecu
