Headlights won't work on my 04 Aztek, checked fuses, relays and bulbs. All are good, only the fog lights and daytime running lights will come on.

as you checked already fuses, relays and bulbs there must be something wrong with the light switch in the dashboard.
- either a loose connector or worn out contacts. first remove the switch and spray some WD-40 or similar contact spray into the connector from behind - if that does not help you have to replace the light switch with a new one...

FORD 2001 CV - Headlights and running lights off, instrument cluster lights off, dome light off, rear window defogger off, turn signals not working. Check all mini fuses under dash OK, maxi and mini fuses...

Your owners manual will show you the location of the relay, for the lights, swap the lights relay with another on. Also, if the light switch is working, and the fuse is good, you will be able to hear the relay click. Have a helper run the light switch while you listen for it to click.

Running headlights not working need solution or is there a switch for lights

Head light have two for daytime and one for normal night. the daytime switching the light to serial circuit and if one bulb is out down both Leigh quit working. Inspect your light high and low beam for normal operation . Inspect your fuses . Swap the daytime relay with identical one.and under the dash is module for daytime running light. inspect the red/black wire for ground from light switch and light blue/ yellow for power from 15A ECU-B fuse
good luck

Tail lights and dash lights is no working

did you check them in the dark to see if , not just dim?
what sub model, EX, or LX? the LX is very different.
the car has 2 fuse boxes. did you know that, most cars do.
the fuse is called fuse #10 (fuse 10 runs hazards too, are haz dead?)
box one in cab, and 2 in engine bay.
the HAZ fuse is marked, HAZ

park/dash dim all dead, this is the largest path in car, over 20 lamps on most cars. (lots of places to mess up)
all are dead, all parks, front , rear, side and cab (dim) dead??????
even the license plate lamp>>>> details?,,,,, help, im blind..
here ill login to for you, so can you at anytime.

ok this car can have a tail light relay. the LX dont have one.
the combo switch (1st click ) turns on park(tails)
and the relay energizes and runs all the park lamps.
but not on the LX, the LX is switch direct drive to all parks.

found this with google. NON LX !!!

Fuse #10 (15A) Audio unit, pocket light, clock, climate control, cruise switch light, gauge assembly, hazard switch light, heater control panel, interior lights switch light, driver's multiplex control unit, power sliding doors switch light, rear A/C switch light, taillight relay TCS swtich light.

My subaru legacy 96 running tail lights don't work. The brake lights turn on, as well as the reverse lights, but the running lights are gone. The fuses are all good, and I think it might be the relay, but...

If 20A FUSE 23 in the main fuse box and 20A FUSE 5 in the fuse & relay box are OK, the tail & illumination relay in the fuse & relay box or the combination switch may be at fault.

My headlight , running lights and dash lights don't work , my dome light , warning lights , signal,and hazard lights all work. all fuses are good ,checked them twice..


Once you have checked the fuses and they all seem to be intact, then you need to check the relay switch of the car. Most of the times it develops faults hereby resulting in those lights not run a check on the relay switch because the lights cannot all stop working at the same time without it being a fault from a component that controls them.

Hope this helps.
Take care and good luck
