Problem with Fuse #9-tail lights&instrument panel illumination

My instrument panel, parking lights and tail lights quit working. So I installed a new fuse, but they still do not work. One time they came on for a short time, but went back off. It's like there is a bad connection on that particular fuse. The other fuses work fine.

    I have exactly the same problem with my instument panel lights and Tail lights.-(fuse # 9) from the owners manual although there is nothing wrong with the fuse.

    I suspect the headlight switch to be the culprit??

There is an electrical short somewhere you have a power wire touching the car's body. Is there tail/brake lights in the trunk lid? if yes, check around the trunk hinge, the wiring sometimes follows the hinge back to the rest of the car and everytime you open the trunk, you are bending these wires unitl one of them snaps.

Where is the parking light relay located


No relay for the parking lights .
When the headlamp switch is moved to the PARK or ON position, battery voltage is supplied from the 15A Park Lamp fuse to circuit 9. Current flows through circuit 9 to the instrument panel fuse block (IPFB). Battery power passes through the IPFB to both license lamps, both front and rear tail lamps, both front park/turn lamps, and all marker lamps through circuit 9. The front marker and front park/turn lamps are grounded by circuit 150 through the forward lamp ground splice pack. The rear tail lamps and license lamps are grounded by circuit 550 at the rear ground splice pack and the right rear body ground.

2000 Lexus LS400 Instrument panel fuse


It's more likely a fuse is blown, the tail lights are on the same fuse as the dash illumination, check the tail lights if they are not working replace the fuse marked 'tail' in the fuse panel on the inside at the left side of the dash under the cover. At the same time check the 'gauge' fuse', there is a fuse location diagram on the cover.

Is there a fuseable link for parking & dash lights if so where is it located


No, not just for those. There should be a fuse for the tail lights in the instrument panel fuse box. The illumination lights for the dash and the park lights are from the headlight switch, so maybe you have a bad switch. Find the fuse for the tails, pull it out, and check the terminals for power with the park light switch on. One of the two terminals where fuse plugs in should have power-it should light up a test light or show voltage on a meter. If no power on either terminal, probably the headlight switch is bad.

1994 silverado illumination on instrument panel doesn't work, parking lights and tail lights do not work but headlights and brakelights work fine. All fuses are good. Is this a bad dimmer switch?


No. Dash lights being out could be a bad headlight switch, since the dash lights are routed through the headlight switch, not the dimmer switch. Park and tail lights also controlled by the headlight switch.

I have a 98 chevy malibu. the tail lights, running lights and instrument lights do not work but head lights do


The good news is that all of these problems stem from the same source: the 15A PARK LPS fuse in the underhood wiring harness junction block. When you set the turn/headlamp/wiper switch to PARK, the park lamp relay in the junction block closes and power is applied to the front marker lamps and the park filament of the front park/turn lamps as well as the tail filaments of the rear tail/stop lamps.

As for the instrument lights, that same PARK LPS fuse applies power to the same turn/headlamp/wiper switch that, when set to PARK or HEAD applies power to the variable panel dimmer switch which lets you set the illumination level. Switch output is applied to the lamp dimmer module and module output passes through the 10A INST LAMPS fuse in the right I/P wiring harness junction block to the instrument lamps

My 2002 ford ranger running lights and instrument panel dont work


12V power passes through 15A fuse 33 (the one that keeps blowing?) in the battery junction box and on to the main light switch. When the main light switch is set to PARK, 12 volts is routed via the BRN lead to the park filaments of the dual park/turn lamps. These lights remain on when the headlight switch is turned to HEAD.

The main light switch gets its 12V input from 7.5A fuse 11 in the central junction box and the same 15A fuse (33) identified above. When the main light switch is set to PARK, 12 volts is routed via the BRN lead to the instrument panel dimming module and module output is applied to the panel illuminating lamps.These lights remain on when the headlight switch is turned to HEAD.

The input to fuse 33 is hot all the time so should read 12V. If you read 12V at the TAN/WHT connection with the fuse out, something is definitely not right. I'm sure you have noted that the fuse is common to the non-functioning circuits you mentioned.

Tail lights do not work, blinkers work, brakes work, but tail lights do not. This happened when I hauled my boat home, so I disconnected the trailer light harrness and they still don't work, fuses are...


I bet you missed a fuse. Your tail lamps are protected by fuse #9 in the instrument panel fuse block. It is a 20 Amp fuse and is marked "PARK LPS".

Dash lights & tail lights are not working but every thing else is need help to locate fuse for it 2002 ford f150


The parking lamp circuit feeds the instrument illumination fuse

The parking lamp fuse is engine compartment Fuse # 6
After the main headlamp switch the cab fuse panel fuse # 18 is the fuse for the instrument illumination.

Don't forget to turn the main headlamp switch to at least the park position when you test the fuse with a meter.
