Question about 1994 Mercury Grand Marquis

1 Answer

My auto lamp works but the rear lights and dash illumination does not. All fuses are good.

I pulled out the head lamp knob and turned it so the interior lights would come on. Did this several times then the dash lights came on. Now that doesn't solve the problem. Brake lights and turning signals are fine.

It's the terminals for the tail and dash lights on your headlight switch. It is a common problem though Mercury never seems to have addressed it. I've had to change my switch out 5 times in 2.5 years.

SOURCE: 1998 Mystique brake lights don't work while the window brake light does work.

Try a continuity test, not sure where to find the electrical scheme but if you obtain it, use a tester or borrow one to test the continuity of the wires of both taillights, could be simple as a cut wire.

SOURCE: turn signal does not work

HI. Click here to view a troubleshooting page, that will help isolate the issue. The likely culprit will be the Flasher.

The flasher unit can be found under the dash panel attached to a bracket on the right side steering column opening reinforcement. On some models, the flasher plugs into the fuse panel.

The flasher can be removed by pressing the plastic retaining clip and pulling straight rearward. Align the new flasher housing with bracket and push forward until it snaps into the bracket

Click Here to view the fuse box layout picture.

The mounting of the fuse panel is either on the left side of the passenger compartment, under the dash, on the side kick panel or on the firewall to the left of the steering column. Certain models will have the fuse panel exposed while other models will have it covered with a removable trim cover.

SOURCE: No dash or tail lights

Hello.
The same thing happened to my BMW. All my fuses were fine too, what the problem was, was that the fuse that belonged to the dash lights and the brake lights, taillights etc. was wrong. If the fuse is not the correct amperage not everything on that circuit will work. So even though that the fuse is not burnt, the fuse could still be incorrect. Thats your best bet to check.
Your second solution can be the ground on that circuit. Check the grounds that come from the taillights, and find where it connects to the body or the frame with a small screw of small bolt. If the ground is dirty or rusty, it wont make a good connection and you will have loss of lights.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: The right rear turn signal blinks quickly in a

I believe this car has a rear bulb that has two fillaments, one for side lights the other shared for braking and flash. sounds like a blown bulb or a bad ground connection. Check the bulb and the bulb holder and ground connection.
Turn signal blinking quickly generally indicates a blown bulb front or rear or bad connection.

there are many things that glow in dashes.
like
  1. warning lamps.
  2. map lights
  3. radio lamps.
  4. speedo and tacho, back lighting (part of the PARKing lamps)
  5. the dash dimmer knob if turned down kills #4 in cluster.
  6. foot well lamps. glove box lamps. shifter lamps. etc. endless.



If you don't have the operators guide or FSM book,
then you cant know what fuse it is, can you,
nor where it is.
you can login to mitchells DIY and read it.

ill pretend you said, USA>

Put in new radio dashboard lights dont work. all fuses are good


name one lamp dead.! oif the many.
lots of lamps.
and you did blow a fuse. or cut a wire.
for sure.
if only the speed o illumination is dead.
then the park fuse is blown
or you turned the illum dial down on dash knob. (a feature)
some cars(vast) have 2 fuse boxes some 3.
so find all of them yet.
if usa car,
then alldata.com has these facts, ever read books or online real FSM on your car, its all there, no need to ask, or wonder.
RTM
but do name just one lamp.... we cant guess that.

Dash lights stay off


Check for power to the light switch. If no power, trace wiring from fuse panel to switch. If there is power, then it could be your switch that is bad.

Dash and running lights not working and i have checked all fuses.head lights and break lights and turn signals all work.


The dash and insrument illumination lights are both controlled off the same circuit within the headlamp switch. You can try finding a happy spot for the lights by very slowly pulling out the switch after the running light position and turning the knob back and forth, but, this is purely temporary. You need a new switch and it's very easy to change. If you disconnect the battery positive cable. Pull the switch all the way out to the headlamp position. After doing this reach around the back of the switch on each side and you'll find a small button that you can push in. This button allows You to remove the knob/shaft combination. Then just take out the 6-8 screws that hold the cluster face plate(or it may just pry off) and unscrew the collar that secures the headlamp switch to the dashframe.. The harness comes of in one piece and that's it. Good Luck Dana

Dash illumination and rear lights went out at the same time.


first get a auto repair manual for you car at the local auto parts store or Ebay, then check the manual for dash light location and rear light locations , next with a continuity checker check for gound and power in the sockets , may be a bulb got over heated and shorted a wire causing dash and rear lights not to work
