Hi njaqua. The fuse box containing the fuse is under the engine hoodjust behind the battery. If i remember correctly 10amp should be the size. Seperate fuses for left and right tail lights. Sure hope this helps!

Parking lights plate lights taillights and shift indicator light went out on my 95 mercury grand marquis LS. Not a spot for fuse, and changed lcm please help


But there would be a fuse for those lights, somewhere. The park/taillights and the license plate light would for sure be on the same fuse. Not sure about the shift indicator light, that might be on a separate fuse like for dash lights and/or instrument panel lights. But yes, you need to look at all your fuse panel sites again, there might be more than one under the dash, too, maybe behind the glove box or under the dash on the passenger side.

Check to see if your brake lights and rear turn signal lights work. Do they still work right? If they don't work either, there may be a ground problem with the rear lights. If still no help with the lights, one would need a voltmeter and a wiring diagram of the lights to track down the problem. Things like looking for power along the electrical path from the switch to the fuse panel to the lcm to the bulbs. First find the fuse. good luck.

Taillights, back-up lights, runninglights & instrament lights


You need and electrical mechanic. There must be a broken wire or bad connection. You have to check everywhere under and in the back of your taillights. Good Luck!

No tail lights


Hi, without knowing any further degtails of the failure, I will suggest the following, First, the most common cause of a cars taillights failing to come on is a failed fuse. Take note that a fuse can go bad on its own or it can be blown by a short circuit or an overload. In either case, the cause would have to be located and repaired.

In your 1988 Acura Legend, the fuse is located inside the passenger compartment and on the fuse panel. The panel is located behind either the driver side or passenger side kickpanel.

If the fuse is bad, replace it. If this solves the problem and the replacement fuse holds, then you're all set.

If the fuse for the taillights is good, you must trace the wiring from the fuse block to the headlamp switch located on the steering coluum. If you have current up to that point, you need to track the current from the switch through the wiring and back to the taillights themselves. If you loose current somewhere enroute , then check for broken wiring or a loose or corroded connector.

If you track current all the way to the actual taillight socket, then check the relationship between the socket and the bulbs themselves.
Is the wiring pulled loose from the socket or not connected well? Use a 12 volt test lamp to check for current at the connections inside the sockets and of course insure the bulbs are the correct type and are in good working order.

Now during you do not have any taillights, I suspect either a bad light switch or bad tailight fuse. Good Luck.

How to change a tail light bulb in a honda element


Open the hatch and the tailgate.

Remove the two mounting screws with a Phillips-head screwdriver, and remove the taillight assembly from the body by pulling it back.

Determine which of the three bulbs is burned out: brake/taillight, turn signal light or backup light. (I assume you’ve already determined this)

Remove the socket by turning it one-quarter turn counterclockwise.

Pull the bulb straight out of its socket.

Push the new bulb straight into the socket until it bottoms.

Reinstall the socket into the light assembly by turning it clockwise until it locks.

Test the lights to make sure the new bulb is working.

When reinstalling the taillight assembly, first place the two pins in the holes in place. Tighten the two mounting bolts.

Hope this is helpful to you.

Brake lights gone, hazards and blinkers work. fuses are good


Replace the turn signal switch. The 2 lower brake lights run through this swith but the upper one does not. Let me know if you have any questions. Its not a hard oub if you are fairly mechanical. I expensive to have a dealer do. The part new is about $65.00.

1991 honda accord tails and dash lights went out cant get them to come back on


Start with your fuses: Fuses are in two areas. In the interior fuse box (left kick panel, below the dash--fuse chart on the cover) and in the engine compartment fuse box (far upper left as you face the car: fuse chart on the cover). Tail/Brake lights are combined with the Horn fuse in the engine compartment box. The fact that both taillights are out as well as the dash does not suggest the bulbs, but anything is possible. Tail light bulbs are accessed from inside the trunk compartment.
Hope this is of some help

Cant locate fuse boxes in 1997 toyota camry


There are several fuse blocks. (Oh joy, huh?)

1.One is a rectangular black plastic box, with one corner cut off. It's next to the battery. You depress tabs on the cover sides, to remove the cover. Underneath the plastic lid is the fuse and relay information. (What they are, where they're located)

2.On the passenger side, down by the right foot, is a kick panel, (In front of the door) This panel is removed to access another fuse block. The information is on the inside of the panel cover.

3.There may be one behind the left side kick panel.

4.1994-1996 models, have a fuse panel on the left side of the dash. To the left of the steering wheel, behind a coin box. I brought this up just in case.
The backside of the coin holder has the fuse locations. I see Stoplamp listed, and it's 15 Amp. Tail is listed too, and it's a 15 Amp blade fuse also.

Passenger Taillight always burning out


I own a 97 LS as well and I was going through passenger taillight bulbs too. I found that the water that drained in the channel around the trunk was deteriorating the connectors on the taillight. I replaced the circuit board (black plastic piece you plug the lights into) and also used a can of Electical Connector Cleaner on both the plug to the circuit board and the socket the lights plug into. Lights have lasted now 5 months without burning out.
