In the fuse box it will be called the courtesy lamp fuse, some call it the clock, cigar lighter fuse. If you use a fuse tester or a 12 volt test light to test each fuse, if the lettering is bad, you can use the test light to probe both sides of all of the fuses. Any fuse that lights the test light on only one side of the fuse when probed and does not light on both sides of the fuse, is blow. On your truck, the dome lamp, clock, radio memory and cigar lighter are all on the same fuse. Thanks
