Headlights blink on and off


This works for a ford taurus so I thought I would put my 2 cents worth in. Sometimes the Hazard button plays havoc with the lighting system. If there is a hazard button on the steering shaft, try putting a toothpick to wedge the button one way or the other. A jiggling button will cause the same system if the connectors to the lights are tight and the grounds are good. Hope this helps

No dash lights when headlights are turned on. Everything works fine on my vehicle EXCEPT today the panel lights don't work. Turn signals, hazard blinker, oil gauge, rpm gauge, speedometer, drive shift...


there is a regulator for the display brightness, you may have it turn'd down or it has stopped working;. it controls the brightness at which the dash lights are. usually has a speedo sign on it. goes up and down. it works with the main light and is conecter to them on the same lighting board if it has gone then a new light swtch control switch will be needed.

My dash lights and gages are not working and my night driving lights are not working either... do i need a new cluster


If you mean the parking lights, they are not affected by the cluster.
The gauges are on one fuse, the dash lights are on another, and the parking lights on a third circuit.
I would check for power at the fuses then headlight switch for the lighting problems. And for voltage at the fuse and the connector on the back of the cluster for the gauges problem.

Tail lights, parking lights and dashboard lights on 2004 grand marquis are inoperative. Headlights, turn-signal lights, brake lights, hazard lights, back-up lights all work


Tail lights, parking lights and dash lights are all on the same circuit...I'd go to the fuse panel under the dash and check the fuse for those lights....usually referred to as accessory lighting in the owners manual and is usually a 10A fuse.

Hope this helps...

1996 Chevy Lumina Car. No dash gage lights. Radio works and has lights.Which fuse should I replace? There isn't one that indicates dash. Service Engine light sometimes comes on for a day or so and then...


It's probably the dimmer switch, chevy is bad for them going out or shorting. It should be on the fuse with the dome light. Try working the dimmer back and forth, see if it works then.

I have brake lights and hazard lights. i do not have turn signals. in dash indicators for hazard lights come on, not for turn signals. fuses look fine and i found 1 signal bulb in the rear that needed...


If the fuse is ok then I would look into replacing the turn signal switch. This is not a very difficult task at all. If you have the hazards then your flasher unit would be ok. If there is only one bulb out then you are probably looking at the switch.

Dash lights flicker


you most likely have a bad ground wire or a loose connection.  These are usually not easy to find and will take some hunting under the dash and the fuse box to repair.  Good luck
