I’ve looked all over the dashboard for a up/down switch. All I see under the steering wheel is a button?
And dumb ol country boy can’t find the fuse panel. HELP

I'm lost, Can you provide some context for what your looking for. These vehicles are really basic but still come with lots of switches and buttons.

Yo Rennie,
I assume, and I've assumed incorrectly at times, the "up/down switch" you're seeking is for the tailgate glass.

It's on HVAC Control Panel, labeled "Rear Glass".

Fuse Panel is located inside the passenger compartment, on firewall, left of the steering column. Basically behind the e-brake..

I've been in hospitals, wheel chairs and rehab centers so I know how it is to wait to ger better and do things to our Bronco!
Be well SOON Rennie!
