The tail light relay is under the plastic panel near the fuse box on the DRIVERS side. Yes I have had this problem. So in desperation I connected a wire from the battery to the lights, my wife continually ripped the wire out so I ran a hot wire to a switch and on to the running lights, turn the switch on and I have tail lights, then I noticed that with the switch off I could turn them on at the light switch. Possibly fumbling around reconnected something. I have tested every relay, fuse, wire for voltage and continuity and had zero results. Then the switch, who knew?

SOURCE: how do I remove the drive shaft from my 1988

There should be four bolts holding the drive shaft agt the output end of the transmission. Remove those bolts. There will also be four bolts holding the shaft at the third member of the axle. remove those bolts as well. For safeties sake. block your wheels before you do this.

SOURCE: Chevy Cheyenne pick-up dash lights and tail lights out.

A blowen fuse will cause that, most all dash lights and taillights on cars and trucks run off the same fuse.

Dashboard lights are out, switch was not turned off - could it be as simple as a fuse?


Yes it could be a fuse. If you have not noticed, I bet your tail lights are not working either. On most vehicles as a safety device, the tail lights and dash lights are on the same circuit. So it could be a simple problem with the tail lights, such as both bulbs are out. The 1988 is getting a little old but still a good car. They started putting tail lights on the dash circuit way back before the 1950's. Good luck. Let me know if that does not help.

I just bought a 2006 Toyota Corolla S, and my dash lights and tail lights wont come on. All the other lights work, such as the headlights, break lights, turn signals, four ways, front fog lights and...


the tail light issue could be just bad bulbs, check them with a meter ,, also, check the sockets for power to each contact point,, normally if the brake lights and flashers are working, the tail lights should too,, as far as the dash lights have you installed an after market stereo? If so a common problem is a wrong wire got grounded,The harness from the car to the factory radio has a wire for the dash lights that shows up as ground with the light off. When the lights are on the wire is 12V+. Check to see if you connected the ground from the new stereo to this wire. The radio will work perfect but everytime you turn thr park light on the fuse will blow...and the radio will continue to work. There should be a ground wire in the harness as well, ensure you connect the ground from the new stereo to this wire. there is a 15 amp fuse that blows, check them with a meter rather than by sight

I have a 1987 toyota 4runner and no running lights or dash lights . The tail light fuse is ok but still no dash lights or running tail lights break lights light up fine.


THE DASH LIGHTS ARE USUALLY CONTROLLED BY A SMALL THUMB WHEEL NEAR THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH ON THE DASH. THAT IS A RHEOSTAT, THAT MAKES THE DASH LIGHTS BRIGHT & DIM. REPLACE OR BYPASS IT.

I had the same issues. Dash dead, tail lights dead. Fuses were fine, Dimmer relay was fine...So I got to the Tail Light Relay.

Removed the glove box, one screw on the right. Reach up (above the space where the glove box 'area' would be and there are 3 or 4 relays all sitting on top of a junction box. All of them were loose. I pushed them in...and voila! I was getting scared after the obvious.

DASH LIGHTS WON'T COME UNTIL---! 1988 PLY VOYGER 3.0


either the harness on the cluster is loose somehow... or a bulb ( hooked up in series?) is blown.
Dash lights and tail lights are usually on the same fuse... so check and see if you have tail lights when next this happens.

No tail lights


you most likely have a short somewhere. some vehicles were designed with radio controls on the back of the steering wheel im not sure when they started doing it but thats all i can think of for the radio
