New to Me f250

I took delivery of my first Powerstroke Thursday and I am already in debt to this site.

I had two real issues that were resolved through searching the forums.

2000 F-250 extended cab 2WD 202Kmiles.

There were no turn signals nor brake lights. Easy fix with the illustration I found of the multifunction switch coming unplugged in the column.

Blower only blowing through the defrost. Easy fix with loose connection at the vacuum pump.

Thanks everyone
