my dashlight fuse keeps blowing. I tryed changing the switch with no luck. The light blue/ red wire coming out of the switch that controls the dash lights has no power.

This truck has a Hybrid electronic cluster, a central timer module, and the GEM(generic electronic module, to self test it, do this and post the codes: Using Hybrid Electronic Cluster To enter Hybrid Electronic Cluster (HEC) self-diagnostics, press instrument cluster SELECT/RESET button before turning ignition switch to RUN position. Within 5-8 seconds, odometer will display " tESt". SELECT/RESET button must be released within 3 seconds of odometer displaying " tESt" then, repeatedly press SELECT/RESET button through odometer displays until " dtc" is displayed. When odometer displays " dtc", press SELECT/RESET button again and any continuous diagnostic trouble codes will be displayed before odometer advances to next display. Other HEC diagnostic modes can be entered when self-diagnostic function is entered. See HYBRID ELECTRONIC CLUSTER SELF- DIAGNOSTIC MODES table.

Maybe we should try it again, the codes dont go that high...These are what the cluster should show, if the test is run right...
