Question about 1999 Mercury Cougar

1 Answer

Parking lights are out.

The parking lights and the plate lights are out too. I have looked over the owners manuel and can not find the right fuse to replace. Can you tell me what fuse I need to look at without pulling all of them?
Thanks
Chris

Fuse 33 and 34 are the ones (inside box), make sure that power is present on both sides of the fuse, even if it looks ok, the fuse boxes in these cars are notorius for poor connectors, so the fuse is good but there is no connection to the protected circuit.

    I answered the question you asked correctly and you give me a ZERO rating, a HELPFUL would be appropriate, we are not paid to provide help, just want to try and share my 30 years as a tech.

Ford transit van 2007 right hand parking lights not working


The left and right are typically fused separately with one side providing dash illumination and the other number plate lights, though there might be minor territorial variations, which is why the first point of reference should be the vehicle handbook.

There might be an override where when the ignition is off and the key removed the indicator stalk can select left or right hand parking lights.
Your van will not have an entirely conventional electrical system with most systems being switched by computer so there is a limit to how much an owner could or should attempt.

Sounds like either your wiring from the Light switch is bad or the Light switch itself is bad. Check with your Owners manual to see if the "Parking lights" have a separate fuse.

Your tail and License plate lights would light with either the Headlights or the "Parking" light selected at the switch as would the front parking lights. If all lights except the headlights are out, your problem is closer to the light switch than at the mounting points of each Parking light or License plate light.

This is one case where you will not know if a dead wire off of the switch is dead because of a bad switch or a bad wire. You would have to detach the harness at the switch, test the wire bundle or jump the switch with power to see how it distributes power through the Harness. It will take a lot of time to rule out the switch. It may be cheaper to replace the switch and then work from there.

It would then be a bad ground. Start at the bulb fixtures cleaning and refastening; look for cracked broken wires as you go. A little multimeter will help.

Parking lights and license plate lights won't go off


Lacking an owner's manual, we weren't aware that there was a parking light switch on top of the steering wheel when this happened to our car. We had inadvertently switched that on. Did you check that?

1996 ford escort has no dash or parking lights.


tracing short circuits can be tricky you need a good electrical knowledge and a bit of luck.what items are not working when the fuse has blown? concentrate on these items first follow the wiring back from these loads looking for chafed wires . if you cant see anything put in a fuse and switch the affected loads on one at a time until the fuse blows when this happens youll know which circuit to concentrate on.
