2003 F250 Instrument cluster dead

I pushed the Tow/Haul button on the gear shift and my instrument cluster went DEAD. Have checked the 3 fuses labeled instrument panel (F4,F35,F41) and they look OK.

Any help would be appreciated......

Welcome to FTE.

There is an instrument cluster test that might be helpful, however the procedure is too long to post. If you will send me a Private Message with your E-mail address I would be happy to send it to you.

I had the same problem in my 2003 cc. As the previous post said gages are fused by a fuse not listed in the owners manual. Cause is often a short in the wire that runs through the shift arm attached to the tow haul button. There are a bunch of posts here about how to repair it.
