thanks, going to try to replace most of the fusible links. I see one brown one that is 22ga.

The one thicker one looks red.

thanks again. I really appreciate any help.

Easiest way to test the fusible links is to use a test light and stick the probe end at the firewall end of the colored part. The fusible part is near the middle.

Just wanted to let you guys know I'm up and running again...

Somehow my parking brake almost cut the main power wire into the light switch. I found that and the fusible link that blew because of it I'm guessing. I fixed the wire near the firewall on the inside of the truck and crammed a new fusible link into the "y" harness. Everything is back to normal.

I couldn't have done it without this forum and oldram's posts. Thank you so much. Beer is on me when you come up to Alaska.
