Popped a fuse need some help

Wired up some amber running lights along the pinch welds of my truck today and started testing each light when there was a tiny spark. Now my cab lights, turn signals, tailights and headache rack lights will not come on. I have checked the fuses and they all seem ok I can't find anything wrong with them. Any ideas???

I'd bet you're over looking the blown one You can use a test light, on the fuse itself where the "legs" continue through the plastic on either side of the rating number, Or look carefully at the Owners Manual for the fuses associated with them.

In case you don't have yours -> https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenan...ls/default.asp

Used a test light and every fuse is working as it should. I tested all the fuses under the good and under the steering wheel. My turn signals DO work it just he parking lights and cab market lights that do not come on. Also the warning chime that tells you when you have left your lights on is also gone. I have no clue wtf it is.

Truck is 2000 lariat. My gauge cluster lights also don't come on. My dimmer switch for the inside lights also doesn't work. Could the overhead console have any play in this. It's the only thing I haven't pulled apart. I'm ready to start throwing tool at my new $6k paint job.

I found it!! Fuse #8 in the power distribution box under the hood. It's a mini 15 amp fuse that controls trailer tow electronic brake illumination, PARKING LAMPS, and trailer tow park lamp relay coil. I now for a fact I tested that fuse. I must have tested the side that was still getting power I hope this helps somebody in the future. I was ready to pull my hair out.

I'm glad you found it. That is the main reason to test both sides, as one side will continue to operate as normal. Chalk it up to a good experience that you have learned from and nothing expensive was needed.
