    Thanks for your advice BUT it was not the fuses . I was told its the headlight switch , And that I need a trim puller and a phillips head screwdriver to fix it . Where do I get a trim puller ? And where do I stick it ? to remove the collar on the steering column so that I can replace the switch ! Thanks

The common power source for the tail lights and instrument cluster is the 20A TAIL LPS fuse(s) in the fuse block. BUT, in the case of the instrument cluster, there are actually two fuses with the same identification. Replacement of the fuse with the ORG wire connected should restore the tail lights when you set the turn/hazard/headlight switch to PARK and may restore the instrument cluster lamps. If not, replacement of the second fuse with the two YEL wires connected should solve the problem

Either there is a short from switch to relay to lights or the bulbs are shot or sockets have the short

SOURCE: brake lights

No it is not controlled by the BCM the issue is most likely caused by the turn signal switch itself, a bad internal connection, very common on GM cars and trucks.

SOURCE: my turn signal lights wont work on my 95 firebird formula

Go under the dash on the drivers side, and locate the two flasher stat units. These are small round aluminum 'cans'. They plug in, and have flat blades on the bottom. (You of course won't see these flat terminal blades until you unplug them)

One is for the turn signals. One is for the four way flashers. I can't tell you which one is which.

Past this point, check all the grounds for the turn signals. The wiring harness at the front will have one, or two leads, (Wires), coming out that bolt directly to metal. Either sheet metal for the car, or to the frame. These leads have flat, round terminal ends on them, with a hole in the middle of the terminal.

The lead's terminal end bolts can work loose causing a bad ground, and/or, there could be corrosion in-between the terminal end, and the area of metal it bolts to. If so, use sandpaper, and clean the terminal end, plus the area of metal it bolts to.

There are ground leads, (Or lead), that come out of the rear wiring harness also. Check these.

Still no?
Then your turn signal bulb sockets have corrosion in them. This causes a bad ground.

You may be able to use a rolled up piece of sandpaper, and clean the socket.
(Also touch up the lead, {LED. As in the metal lead}, contact point in the middle of the socket. This is for the Positive connection, but it doesn't hurt to clean it while you're there.

After this is the turn signal switch in the steering column.
(My money is on a bad flasher unit)

SOURCE: i have a 95 pontiac bonneville ssei and the tail

you have a dead short in the wiring harness. Easiest way to diagnose is remove tail/parking bulbs and systematically replace them one at a time. When you replace them, not buy new ones just unplug them, your problem circuit will be when the lamps go dim. That's your short.

Let me know how it goes!

P.s. is the 666 because of the 3 b's in bobbie? Carefull, one's irthday is 12,22,12 may get upset. lol

Tail lights, parking lights and dashboard lights on 2004 grand marquis are inoperative. Headlights, turn-signal lights, brake lights, hazard lights, back-up lights all work


Tail lights, parking lights and dash lights are all on the same circuit...I'd go to the fuse panel under the dash and check the fuse for those lights....usually referred to as accessory lighting in the owners manual and is usually a 10A fuse.

Hope this helps...
