How to fix automatic radio shut off, interior light on/off etc

Recently, my automatic functions stopped working. So the light does not come on/shut off automatically when i turn the truck off. Teh radio will keep running if I do not manually shut it off. The auto lock do not work. Etc. The Info center controls do not allow me to adjust--message says sometingl ike default in system or something. Any clues? Thx

I had a place install a radio/ amp in my old 06 F150 and somehow they made it where my radio wouldn't cut off. I took it to the ford dealer and they said a fuse had blown and they replaced it, and never had the problem again. I thought it was a odd fix but thats what they said!
I am not sure which fuse it was though

I wondered if it could be a fuse. Hope so, as that is a cheap, easy fix.

...do any of the power options in the drivers do work? Check the ground in the door, see if its good. Also there is a thread about a similar problem with the wiring in the door sills. I'll look and see what I come up with for ya...

Thanks. Yes, the power controls (p/l, p/w)) work fine

Good read. Hopefully it will be a fuse--seems much simpler to address.
