    I had the exact same problem. I tried pulling every fuse with no luck. Finally i noticed a wire that was feeding into the fuse panel was shorting out so i pulled it off and the lights went out. The truck ran fine for about 2 months now all of a sudden it will completely die while running for about 5 minutes. I'll be driving down the road and it will just completely die???? I tried changing the battery but no luck the truck will not hold a charge....any ideas???

    I have a 2004 Ram and I noticed the parking lights were on when I went out to get in it yesterday. I pulled fuses and relays and they still were on. I disconnected the battery for a few hours and re-connected but still on. I had to drive the truck that day so I did and within five minutes of driving the truck died. It has to have an electrical problem. If any one has fixed this problem I would like to know.

I had the same problem, also. It turned out to be the brake relay switch was burned out. I have to replace my relay switch every 6 to 8 months. Hope this helped.

Has been running perfectly fine, drove it home this afternoon, parked on the driveway. went to drive it tonight and it won't start, it won't even turn over.


Year make and model might help a bit. Things to check for are starter, alarm, spark, fuel. Does it make any noise while cranking, does it crank. The more info you supply the better the answer

Tail lights don't work and instrument panel won't light up on 2007 corolla


you blew a fuse. check fuses in both fuse boxes..
ahh yes, the IP cluster lamps are dad, but not the idiot warning lights
only the parking lights in the cluster are dead. right.?
and the park-tail, running lights and dash dim lights are all the same.
my guess three is a short on the TAIL fuse, the TAIL fuse blew
and took out: park-tail, running lights and dash dim lights are all the same.
it blew. most are marked tail even thought it runs side lamps and front parking lamps... TAIL is wrong, they are parking. lamps it truth.

Running light will not turn off


park-run -tail
the most complex lights on car, huge number of lamps in side and outside. are ALL 20 dead ,side lamps. license, park, tail, dash , dash dim lights, ALL ?
check the fuses. first. always for ever and ever, check them first.
maked TAIL , even the front parks are run of TAIL. oddly.
parking lamps is the better term.
TAIL is 1929 word back when they had just 1 lamp... EEEEKKKSSS

My tail light fuse on my92 s-10 just keeps on blowin and when it blows my tail lights and my inside dash lights doint work, howcome it would b doin that??


Check your tail light and other running light sockets for corrosion.
Pull each and every bulb to check it, also check the back side of the socket.
(Your headlights are not part of this circuit.)
Rust or water with rust will conduct enough current to blow the fuses.
Please revert back to the 20 amp fuse, as you may damage the wires leading to the bulbs in places you won't be able to find or fix.
It's unlikely that it's one of the actual light bulbs, all light bulbs tend to go open instead of shorted, but you can check them too.

I have a 1991 mercury capri. Tonight when i was driving home the tail lights and dash lights quit working and the headlights were very very dim. Is this a broken fuse problem or something else?


Check your alt.. alt voltage output should be at least 13.2, sounds like it's not charging and your possibly running off the battery, as for the dash and tail lights, there both on the same system, check the fuse.

My 1994 toyota Corolla will not switch out of park to reverse or drive and the brake lights won't come on no matter how hard I press on the brakes. I have changed the brake light switch and even...


There is a small plasic acess cover (1/2" x1/2") on the base of the shifter. Pry it open and press the button. You should immediately be able to shift. The button is needed because the sensor on your brake pedal is broken (won't activate your brake lights either). Use the button on your shifter to get your car home or to the mechanic so you can get the brake switch fixed. Remember whern you drive you have no brake lights. -Mark

All lights are supposed to turn off when a subaru key is off right? No! There is a switch on top of the steering wheel column that will turn on lights for warning when parked. You somehow have hit that switch.
