The 04+ trucks need to have another wire ran up from the headlight switch. Info in here:

I think 06 the wire colors are different once again though, might have to search for that info.

yep. if you only had a dome light, and no maps lights, you'll have to add another wire.

oooooooooook thanks Trent that helped a lot.

the mustang domes are similar to the expos, and since I have an 04+ then ill have to run some wire.

would 16 or 14 gauge work fine?
