If it's doing this while the vehicle is running, it would be because the daytime running light system of the Grand Am included the instrument panel lights. Prior to the daylight sensor becoming standard, on some GM products, only the headlights were part of the daytime running lights system, while on others, it included all the lights.

How do you get to the lights in the dashboard of a 1998 Ford F150?

It is risky fooling with the dash lights as the circuits can be damaged with static electricity. I suggest taking to a garage. How ever, you can get a static electricity band to prevent that from happening. Most parts stores, such as Autozone, Advanced Auto Parts and O'Reillys all have the bulbs for you dash indicator lights and a good book like a Chiltons will tell you how to remove the dash.
