Icon9 Still having dash light problems..

i'm still having an annoying issue of no dash lights (gauge cluster, 4x4, hvac, headlight switch). everytime i replace the fuse in the #1 fuse slot, it pops. i know the wire that runs the dash lights is the green/orange wire coming from the headlight switch. is there anyway i could cut this wire and tap it to something else? or just wire these lights to another source. i really dont want to take it into ford to get this fixed.

well to think of it.. my headlight switch light has never been on? maybe that's irrelevant to the dash lights but idk. where would i start to check for the short?
