Lighting Help

Hey everybody, my dad just had one of our trucks (2000 F350 CCLB dually) worked on. The shop rebuilt the whole front end and replaced/fixed various other things. The truck is not used much (only has 75,000 miles on it) and we just noticed that the lighting is all jacked up.

The headlights and courtesy lights work. The trailer lights, tail/brake lights, dash lights and interior lights don't work. We have tried a new dimmer switch, checked bulbs, and checked fuses, but that didn't make a difference.

Does anybody know what it could be or does anybody have a wiring diagram for the lights in the truck?

Thanks in advanced, Pete.

You might want to try to follow the harness coming off of the headlights to see if there's a break, or if the harness is unplugged at some point.

Another thing you could try is to grab a test light, turn the lights on and keep testing the wire from the headlights back to see if you can find out at what point you loose power. Hope this helps you out. Tony
