If your relay is out or blowing, need to check wires and harnesses connections, also ground wires, could be a short there.

94 achieva dash and tail lights quit Workn fuses seem fine wat am I missing brake lights work fine

Some older article mentioned a relay for the lights, see if you can find a relay for the parking lights in the owners guide for a location, you can swap it with another relay with the same numbers in the panel to quickly test if its bad

Why dosnt my brake lights are signal lights work on my 2000 gmc jimmy ive checkt all fuses and bulbs thay are good

Most likely a Relay is out. Remove one from another say the horn's relay or the A/C's relay and switch it with your lights relay and if the lights are working, go buy a new relay to replace the A/C or horn relay.

My instrument pannel back light and parking lights have stopped working and can't find any bad fuses. Help!!!

Have you tried checking relays? if you find a relay related to parking lights, try swapping it with a relay of the same number if there is one in the panel. also have you check your DRL (daytime running lights) fuse relay? there are generally multiple locations for fuse/relay panels.

My enterior lighs do not come on I checked the fuses under the hood the fuse box everthing look good so why i don't have lights

does your lights come on manually if you turn your dashlights up all the way your interior lights should come on. if they do then it might be a problem with the switch inside the door. also have you checked the bulb? there should be one on each side under the dash also.

I have a 2005 envoy denali and the head lights go off while we are driving it and the high beams and fog lights still work. Eventually they come back on. This has happened several times . Can you help me...

In the fuse box, switch relay #46 with relay #45. If you have lights again, get a new relay. Being your lights aren't out all the time, try cleaning the relay contacts, and the fuse box contacts for this relay. This worked for me.

Have a 2000 ford windstar, the parking lights stay on when car is off along with the light switch. What could be wrong?

park relay may be shorted. find relay in engine compartment relay box. Pull relay out--lights should go out. Put back in, does relay click? If no and lights come on again, replace relay.
If relay clicks, suspect your headlight switch is shorted. let me know if you have questions.

98 explorer fog light always on

reference your owners manual for relay location, if you do not have one you can download it at , the relay for the fog lights should be under hood in power distribution box, ford relay are notorious for hanging up in closed and open positions, pull the relay and see if the lights go out? if so replace relay, try the same for interior lights, that relay should be inside in the fuse box. hope this helps, let me know

Dodge dakota selector switch and relay switch

A selector switch is what you use to turn on or off a circuit such as the lights or wipers. A relay switch is used by a circuit that has a large current draw and a relay uses a small source of current to control a large usage of current. Most fog lights use a relay to control the fog lights. You turn the fog light switch on (that is a selector switch) and the current from that circuit then activates a relay switch to let the larger current draw that the fog lights use go to the fog lights and you have light. A relay also controls if the fog lights are on when the bright lights are on. (on most cars if you turn the bright headlights on the fog lights will go out until you go back to the regular lights)

Hope that helps.
Good Luck

99 dodge caravan parking lights stay on after engine is off.

I had the same problem on my Chrysler Sebring but it was with the headlights staying on. The lights are on a relay called a "delay relay" of which will allow the lights to stay on for a minute after shutting off the ignition (after using your lights let's say when its dark). This of course helps provide light for you to see to walk to your house, keys, etc. But sometimes these relays stick on and just need to be replaced.
