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.

No tail and dash lights on 1990 jeep Cherokee Laredo , I checked the fuse box under the dash all looks ok . however I don't see anything for tail or dash lights maked.


that is because, tail lamps is and old skool word
bad in dark ages (pun ) they had 1 RR tail lamp.
today we have PARKS< the posted 100s if times book on this calls them parks, and that is what they are,
we can call front lamps, tail, so.... its now PARK.
but no lie the first jeeps, AMC? used word TAIL on fuse
the 1990 car is very hard to get drawings. for it.
mitchells has some.
why not just test all fuses??? end the hunt for an exact fuse.
OLD JEEP XJ ,1990,
my guess, 4.0L
I collect old jeep books , I think, im only one here.
so are all parks dead, all front , tail, dash and side lamps dead?
license plate lamps dead? too., those too are PARK.
when the Head limp switch is turned one click from off.
parks. yes?
the parks work key off, so are simple that way, but lots of lamps.
first Ill do my 1988,. (owned 2)
the park wires are blue. and dark blue.
and leave the HL switch on the PARK pin
the HL switch power feed to this path is called PARK FUSE.
the park fuse is also shown as Audio/alarm power too.
there is no park relay like on modern jeeps
its just , battery>>>fuse>>switch >>> and huge array of parks wired in parallel. and then ground.
so if all parks are dead, then it not ground open but only a fuses.
google fines this, see this ase site,,,????
shows fuse 15 is clearly marked, PARK.

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 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.

Toyota Corolla 2006; Dash lights not working and tail lights not working. Checked all small fuses under the hood and under the steering wheel inside the car. I don't know which fuse engages the tail...


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.
