If you don't have tail lights either then it's a fuse. I had the same thing happen to me a while back. It should be a 10A fuse in the underhood panel. I can't remember which one off hand but I think it's the tail light fuse.

What type of work or mods have you done to the truck in the last 2 weeks? it may help us back track the issue.

Do me a favor and check Ign.1 No.2, I had radio, headlights, dash lights, windows and some other die and it was that fuse.

1: Check the ones under the hood

2: go down the line and replace each one with a new one, until the problem goes away.

How and what did you do... and why?

The stock 4-prong switch is:

1 - Fog Relay
2 - Fog Relay
3 - Dash lamps
4 - Ground

If you screwed with that, you could have burned wiring, damaged the lights switch in the turn signal stalk, or burned out the dimmer.


Edit... don't use the above as a wiring diagram... tha's just an example and not the actual pinouts.
