My 2000 Mountaineer has a delayed headlight shut off switch located on the bottom of the rear view mirror. It slides right or left. To the left is off and as you slide it to the right the delay feature gets longer. Farthest to the right could very well be around ten minutes.

It depends on the model radio you have, you can Google 1999 owners manuals for your truck and download a free pdf. But 97-2000 had numerous probs w/ radio.
