If you mean the lights on the radio, chances are they are not burned out but the circuit that provides power to all of them is dead. Does everything else on the radio work OK? If so, you could get it repaired but you can probably buy a better aftermarket unit for less money. The lamps are replaceable. As I remember there are 11 of them. All are soldered to the front printed circuit board. You will need a 1/8 inch nut driver (try a hobby shop) to get the board out. The exact lamp is available from Jameco Electronics part number 210032 or a slightly smaller one that will work from Radio Shack, part number 272-1154 at $1.49 each!

To replace the dashboard lights on the 1997 F-150, you will first need to remove the dash bezel and dash cover in order to access the lights. Then, remove the instrument panel cover below the bezel and remove the burned out lights. Replace the lights and add the cover, dash cover, and bezel back to the dashboard.

It depends what lights you are talking about, most dash lights are just bulbs. However in the cluster for digital lights and the fog light acessories they are done by LED lights in which you can replace if you know the right voltage. There are a lot of dash lights, so IRepairing Dashboard LightsTake apart the dash (or area where the lights are burned out) and replace the bad bulbs with good ones.

Replace the light bulbs that are burned out, usually from the back side of the instrument cluster.

I own a 1997 Isuzu Rodeo and had the same problem. I went to a local Isuzu new-car dealer and was quoted a price in excess of $100 to replace the burned-out dashboard lights. I was told that the cost is high because the top of the dashboard has to be removed in order to obtain access to the lights. I did not have the lights replaced. carlpers

Your dashboard lights suddenly not working is almost always your indication that your taillights are out. If the fuse for your taillights is blown and you replace it, your dash lights should be fine.
