Truck runs but in cab electronics dead???

Just happened. Nothing in the cab works. Instrument panel, overhead panel, lights, radio, seats, windows and locks all not working. Truck starts and runs. Head lights, tail lights and turn signal all work. I don't have an owners manual and think its a fuse but don't know which one or where. Please help. Thanks.

I had something similar happen to me while i was on vacation it was the ignition switch fuse. I cannot remember the fuse number, but i do remember that it wasn't a fuse that i thought it should be labeled. Same symptoms would start but no throttle engine response.

Hey don't what it's worth, however, I'm having issues similar in some form. My dash light's go haywire and the radio and windows won't work. Well, then I take the key out and try it again and then sometimes they'll work, and sometimes not... I'm about to go amp on my dealer where I bought it cause it's only a week old. Here's what I heard somewhere and don't remember where. These EX's are known for a FUSE BOX or PANEL shorting issue. I don't know if it's a RECALL issue or not... Like I said, I don't remember where I read it at, but that's what I seem to recall. I hope someone chimes in with an answer....

Ya'll be safe and let me know if you figure something out...

Shorts under the seat. Fuse box had blown fuses. Etc etc. replaced all the fuses and found the short. Works fine now excet the rear passenger side window doesn't work from driver door rocker. Only works from passenger seat rocker.

Hmmmmm, I'm still diggin around. I lost my alternator Friday night late. Spent all day Sat. taking it out, putting one in and recharging the batts ALL NIGHT long. I'm still having the shorting trouble. I'm headed to the steering column cover next. I do notice a funny feeling when turning the ignition key on. I hope I don't have to buy a new ignition switch. I don't even know where to start on replacing that dang thing.
