Question about 1994 Ford F150 Styleside Supercab

1 Answer

Clearence lights do not light, headlights work.

I have purchased a new switch, but am not sure how much of the dash has to be removed to get the job done. It appears this can not be done from the bottom. ( I have tried that aproach). Any help would be great.

The dash around the insturment cluster has to be pulled back far enough to remove the 2 screws that mount the switch. The problem with this is the knob can not be removed until a button on top of the switch is depressed. Once the screws are out there is enough room to get at the button and remove the knob. When installing the new switch leave the knob off, this allows more room for the installation of the 2 screws. After installing the dash panel then install the knob assembly. Word of caution: inspect the wires behind the switch for integrity as when the switch burns out it may result in some melted insulation just behind the connector. Good luck.

ALL LIGHTS WORK EXCEPT THE HEADLIGHTS


Probably a bad headlight switch. To replace, take the negative battery cable off. On the light switch, behind the dash, there is a plunger button on the switch body. Hold the button in and pull out the switch stalk, all the way out of the switch. If there is a retainer ring on the dash, unscrew it from the switch. Then the switch can be removed from the dash-it will hang down where you can unplug the electrical connector from the switch. To install a new switch, reverse the procedure. Check the electrical connector for damage, being burned or melted type damage.
If it turns out not the headlight switch, it could be the dimmer switch. If you have a voltmeter, you can test wires for power before condemning the light switch, but it is probably the switch.

1983 chevy caprice classic my dashboard lights dont work and also the clock stops working when i turn the lights on


Probably bad ground in the dash circuitry. You'll have to pull it out and check all the connections. Big job.

Dash and tail lights stopped working on my daughters 1991 toyota celica gt. the fuse has been checked and replaced. it was ok. the headlights were recently changed. is it true the dash and tail lights run...


If the tail lights and the dash lights stopped working and the tail light and the panel lighting fuses are both o.k. and you can find no other blown fuses then the problem is most likely the headlight switch.

Headlights don't work.


There is a circuit breaker inside the headlight switch body. It gets weak over time and use. The breaker is actually mentioned in the owners manual. A new switch is about $75.00 at the local parts store. You must remove the front of the dash to change the switch. Mine would go off and then in about 30 seconds reset and the lights would come back on. I would be driving down the road with my headlights flashing as the circuit breaker opened and closed. New switch = problem fixed.

Lights flashing, then not working at all


From what you are describing it sounds as if the headlight switch has gone bad.  That switch controls not only the headlights but the tail lights and all dash lights.  Everything that IS working is connected to other switches not related to the headlight switch.  You can either buy a new one or get a used one from a junk yard or ebay.  Pay particular attention when getting a replacement as there are 3 different models which vary depending on options such as Auto mode and Foglights.   Replacement is easy.  Using a flat screwdriver carefully pry off the trim cover around the switch. The switch is held in with some screws.  Be careful disconnecting the wires so as not to break the locking tabs. The trim just pushes firmly back into place.

If you already check the dimmer definetly you will have to remove the dashboard area where the indicator is and replace those light bulbs they are tiny so careful and first check your auto parts store for correct number.luck!

Dash lights and tail light not working


The dash lights and tailights are on the same fuse link. everything else will work like brake lights and turn signals but this one fuse causues alot of problems. Sometimes this fuses isnt marked on your cover so you might have to look in the maual to find the right fuse . some will be under the hood some will be under the dash .

Good luck to you all on finding this little fuse hope you find it before the cops pulls out behind you when its dark :)
