Hello and thank you for your question,

The most common cause for this problem your 1999 F 350 is in most cases is due to a leaking windshield seal on the left front top Corner and not the roof light, when the windshield seal leaks it allows water to run down the left windshield post and drip on the GEM/Fuse panel and when this gets wet it shorts internally and causes all sorts of electrical issue such as the ones you are having. The fix in most cases is to have your windshield resealed and that will in most cases solve this issue once the GEM/fuse panel dries out.
