Problem with interior lighting
Hey guys. I have a 2013 Focus SE with a 5-speed. has 14k miles on it. The other day I noticed that the lighting on the visor for the mirror would not work. Upon further inspection, I realized that the overhead dome lighting wasn't working, and I have no backlighting behind my steering wheel controls, the manual climate control dials, the light on the rear window defroster (to tell you when it's on), and the Max Air/Recirculation and A/C buttons do not work and also do not have a functioning light. The light in the glovebox does not work either. In other words,the only lighting that actually is working correctly is my gauge cluster and the infotainment screen and radio control buttons in the center console. Also, the blower position is now stuck on defrost, no matter whether i set it to blow on feet or face. The knob for blower speed and air temp both work, however. I've already turned off and on the car quite a few times, hoping maybe it would just reset something. The temperature is quite cold here in Chicago (when i left for work today it was -6F), but i've never had a problem with this in any other car. I thought maybe it was a fuse, and tried swapping the fuse that controls the glove box lighting for another fuse of same amperage, no luck. My limited knowledge of electrical stuff stopped at that. Does anybody have any suggestions? It's really friggen cold when only the defroster works.
