Question about Ford F-150
The gages are in-op due to a failed instrument cluster voltage regulator most likely, the radio is not connected to that circuit, so u will need to use a 12 volt test light (avil from Kragen or autozone for $5) and recheck all the fuses that are less than 20 amps, u may have a fuse that looks good but is actually blown at the edge, a visual is not good enough, as far as the voltage regulator goes it is attached to the printed circuit board on the back of the instrument cluster, the part looks like a very short 9 volt battery and is connected to a connector that is a 9 volt battery connector, this is a very common failure in early fords.
