No Fog/Dash/Running lights?

Got a coolant flush done today and now i have no power to my fog lights, no back light in my dash, and no running lights on the back of side of the truck. I have an 05 F-350 6.0 and I don't know a thing about electrical...any ideas? I assume something shorted out somewhere?

Thanks in advance!

The first and easiest thing to check would be the fuse. Make sure you use a test light to check for power on both sides of the fuse, I have been burned by visually checking a fuse and thinking it was OK, turns out it wasn't. If it is blow you have a short some place, which could be moisture getting in someplace.

Thank you very much, I am taking it back to the shop right now. Where I live it is illegal to drive without running lights so I hope we can fix it today.
