Mine was doing this during the winter months and cold days this spring. Emailed the sales guy that I purchased from and he responded with this:

Please call us at (626)934-8884 and ask for Tech Support, they will assist you in troubleshooting with this light.
Part number: 5084460



Worth a shot to call, I have not yet...

Fixed the marker light, added fog lights

The latest addition to my 2016 F-350 are a pair of Baja Designs fog lights. Since the truck didn't have fog lights to start with, I had to order the whole fog light set from Ford before the Baja's could be installed. Then I find out there are four little 'clips' that come on the factory fog light setup if they were on the truck, but don't come with the fog light setup if you order it from Ford. Why the parts guy didn't know that is odd. But then, I guess when you're dealing with zillions of parts for dozens of car models, this can happen. Anyway, the fog lights are in, and I ordered the needed 'clips' from an eBay store (since Ford wanted $8/each for them!). $4/ea from eBay - still a rippoff in my opinion, but oh well.

Meantime, I'm thrilled to death with the lights! I had no idea they would be this bright. They make my regular headlights look (and act) like marker lights in comparison. I had the option of two different light powers so of course I ordered the most powerful ones. Now I wonder about the wisdom of this, but it's too late now. I actually wanted lights I could use during the day out on two lane roads so oncoming traffic could see me from a distance. There's lots of "distance" out here in Nevada - ha.

Those look great! Definitely bright as hell.

I was considering swapping mine to get a broader light pattern to illuminate the side of the road better. Do this have more of a pencil beam or a wide beam?

thanks!

When it comes to mechanics, everything I know is from either breaking it or watching someone else do the same. Then I had to fix it....Is that bad?

I need to do that bad. I spilled a bit of oil in the bed when I did the "mid road trip" oil change. Need to clean that off the bedinsert and get a good interior/exterior wash going.

These have more of a wide beam (I'd call it a "swath" of the brightest light I've ever seen on the front of a pickup's fog lights) that lights up both sides of my street the one time I took them for a test drive. But they also shined all the way to the end of the block.

I very seldon drive at night anymore now that I'm retired. I fall asleep about 8 pm -

Hooked it up to the toy hauler. Went to campsite. Fun all weekend. It's now back in the barn waiting for the next adventure.

“I very seldon drive at night anymore now that I'm retired. I fall asleep about 8 pm”

That is hilarious. I am not at that stage yet...

Lights sour. Perfect though. Thanks!

Fixed my NO Crank Issue

2016 F350 Lariat CC LB 4WD DRW
Been experiencing a random no crank issue the last couple of weeks; turn the key to crank and sometimes got a click and most time nothing except dash would go blank then come back up when return key to on position. Started Friday morning of Labor Day weekend when 150 miles from the house on the beginning of what ended up being a 1300 mile Labor Day weekend excursion road trip. It did it a few more times that same morning then thankfully it cranked and started like normal the rest of the trip. After getting back home 2 nights later experienced the same no crank again twice but otherwise cranked and started normally. Then after sitting in the driveway overnight the no crank and occasional click but mostly nothing came back and this time was here to stay. Thankfully it was in the driveway and not stranded somewhere.

The start relay fuse was okay.
I checked each battery separately with a load tester and they both passed.
So next was checking the connections on the starter solenoid & starter for corrosion or anything. Power cable to solenoid and start wire connections were fine. Turned out to be the factory jumper from solenoid to starter was loose and it had started to melt the nut. Cleaned all the cables/jumpers and terminals and tightened all the nuts on the solenoid and she cranks and starts every time now
