Just installed a dbl din dvd player in my 05 250. I pulled the dash off and unplugged all the plugs with it, installed the dvd player and put it all back..

I also connected a wire to upfitter switch #2 to see if it would work as a bypass for the dvd player, it didnt- so far..

Now my dash cluster lights or my fogs do not light up?? Ive checked all plugs and fuses inside the truck. Is there a relay or fuse outside that control these things, or something im missing?.. So far this is all that has been affected.

Thanks

You may have blown a fuse connecting the upfitter switch for the bypass. For a bypass switch you normally need a momentary switch so it interuptes ground and then reconnects and stays grounded. Some instructions will say that in some cases you have to release the parking brake then reengage it. Sames thing for the switch. Also, check make sure your dimmer switch is all the way on and not dimmed.
