Customer Question

None of my gauges of dash controls work. The stereo is on, but can't be adjusted or shut off, even if I shut the truck off.
JA: Have you checked the fuse?
Customer: I'm not sure which fuse to check. My manual is at home and I am 2 hours away. No turn signal, etc. make me nervous. The nearest Ford dealership is another hour away through heavy traffic
JA: What is the model/year of your Ford?
Customer: 2015 Ford F 150 XL
JA: Are you fixing your E150 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I've tried finding a mechanic to look at it and they all say take it to the dealer.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I just want to know if there is a fuse or reset I can try, and where to find it

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.

This looks to be a BCM body control module failure without testing having been done yet. You can check fuses if you want though. #13 under the dash would be the one to check for no gauge operation. You can try a reset which means you disconnect both battery vables and hold them together for one minute then reconnect and try it out.
