1. You can never test a fuse by looking at it, you must physically test it with a circuit tester.
2. Your problem is either in your headlight dimmer switch or your headlight relay.
For location of relay, go to your local Autozone and ask to be shown its location.

1994 dodge dakota my headlights and tail lights and brake lights don't work my abs and parking brake lights are on my dash lights don't work either I replaced the headlight switch and still no


These are all different circuits. The brake lights are on a 10amp fuse - the headlights are on a 50amp fuse - and the parking and dash lights are on a 20amp fuse.
Do you have power going into the headlight switch and the brake light switch ?

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.

Dashboard lights and tail lights don't work 95 toyota corolla


The circuits are on two different fuses, but both are controlled by the headlight switch. I would check for power at those fuses then at the switch.

Tail lights don't work on 83 cutlass supreme


I assume you checked the bulbs and they were good? It's possible that the sockets have gone bad and need replacing. The tail lights are fused through the instrument panel lights. that fuse should be in the middle of your fuse box, marked "instr". If the fuse is good check to see if the dash lights come on when you turn the headlight switch on. If they don't then change the headlight switch. hope this helps.

My headlights have quit working on my 1994 Chevy 1500 pickup. I replaced the headlight switch but they still don't work. The parking lights come on but not the headlights


Try checking both a; your fuses, and b; check your bulbs. You should have two fuse boxes, one under hood and one in or under the dash. Check those for bad, blown or weak fuses. And check your headlights bulbs for them being good and their connection. If this doesn't fix your problem, you may check out your highbeam switch.

1997 dodge caravan. headlights won't work. the lights are good, the fuses are good, replaced the switch... still they don't work


Well...if lights are good, fuses are good, and the peplaced switch is good...maybe there is a relay for the headlights in a distrobution panel under the hood.
I'd check that next.

Hope this helps...

My ranning lights on rear end dosnt work. My brake lights work turn singnals work but my running lights don,t work and dash lights


GET A GOOD FUSE TESTER, TEST ALL THE FUSES. THERE IS A FUSE BOX UNDER THE DASH, CHECK EACH FUSE TURN ON HEADLIGHT SWITCH, THE FUSES CAN BE TESTED WHILE STILL IN THE FUSEBOX. POWER ON ONE SIDE, FUSE IS BAD. POWER ON BOTH SIDES, FUSE IS GOOD. POWER ON NEITHER SIDE, SPARE FUSE. IF THERE IS NO POWER AT THE TAIL LIGHT FUSE, THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH MAY BE BAD. IF THE FUSES ARE THE OLDER GLASS BARREL TYPE THEY MAY HAVE BECOME CORRODED OR RUSTY. IF SO YOU WILL NEED TO CLEAN THE FUSE BOX CONTACTS WITH FINE GRIT SANDPAPER & PUT IN A NEW FUSE.
