Icon5 2007 Under Dash Fuse box

Hey guys,

I just recently bought a 2007 Under Dash Fuse box from a Ranger Sport that was t-boned pretty bad on the driver's side and I installed it in my 2004 Ranger and not only did my truck not start but the windsheild wiper fluid started spraying out. Would it be safe to say that the fuse box was damaged? It says on the box to scrap if dropped more than 20 CM, so I don't think it can take a lot of shock. The only difference in the two boxes is that the 2007 is missing the # 7 circuitry for the Headlamp illumination indicator fuse (5 AMP) I don't think that would cause my truck not to start. Would it?

Thanks,

Brian

I got a fuse box out of a 2004 Sonic Blue Ranger Edge that was rolled like 50 times and it worked just fine. So, now I don't think the 2007 fuse box was damaged. I just think Ford made it to where it wouldn't be compatible.

Somewhere in the 2006-2009 Ranger a bit of the electrical stuff got switched around again. I believe it was 08+ but maybe 2007? The door switches and headlight ***** are different so I would assume the setup for them is different. ie) Foglight switch was put as part of the headlight **** like the 2004+ F150s instead of on the passenger side of the radio bezel where the kids can play with it.

Hey Kevin,

The headlight switches were changed in 2007 to be like the 2004 + F-150s and the power window and door lock switches were changed in 2008.

Hey Chris,

Can you tell me what IIRC and SJB stand for? Would that be enough to keep my truck from starting?

Thanks,

Brian
