    My 2000 F-350 has no parking or dash lights. I checked all fuses in the cab and under the hood. I also installed a new headlight switch, still no lights. I could really use some help.

    There are several underhood fuses that power the lighting circuts. Trailer and truck running lights are fused seperatly. Also there may be a relay depending on outfitting for your F350 that controls the power to the headlight switch.

    We see most of these occur when the trailer plug gets shorted out and blows the under hood fuse.

    Thank you for your reply Jerre. The plug is probably a mess from spreading salt. My headlights,turnsignals and brakelights all work. I checked the small fuses in the power distribution box under the hood. They were all ok. I will dig a little deeper and see if any of the larger fuses are bad. I will let you know. thankyou.

    The same thing happened in my Dodge. It turned out it was a blown fuse, most likely caused by my old 4 pin trailer plug that I never use.
