If this is a 1997 2 door XK8 then it is your main switch thats bad, if it is a 4 door sedan and your light and signals don't work then you need to start with the fuses.
Goto the engine bay and on the passenger side there is a long black box, inside there is your fuse identification chart.
Fuse boxes are in engine bay, trunk next to battery and under the rear seats, where your heals go, do not have to remove seats (2 inspection panels)

Make sure all bulbs are working. All blinkers, tail lights, brake lights etc. I know you mentioned most of these lights work, however it only takes one light to throw off several others. Trace wiring from each as far as possible to locate a possible break in the wiring (shorts). Also, check the headlights and make sure they are plugged in all the way (even tho they work). Also check all relays. One dirty connection can cause all sorts of problems. Jeeps also are known for their poor wiring and common electrical issues.

I'd be willing to bet your dash lights don't work either when you turn the headlight on.change the headlight switch, it has a short, it's only about 11 dollars at advance auto, and is fairly easy to replace. my 93 chevy did same thing, changed headlight switch, problem solved

There's a running light controller under the dash next to the steering collum that cost a little over $100. It fails and it's the only way to fix it right and it might happen again too.

Dash and running lights does not work, everything


The fuse to the taillights/running lights?
It can't be a grounding problem if both taillights and dash don't work.
If only taillights don't work, it would be suspicious grounding.

1997 GMC Sierra p/u. Brake light & blinker out. Taillights ok.


I have notice that this is a common problem. The socket most of the time goes bad, I don't know why but they just do. You can pick them up at any parts store for around 5.00 each. If you don't have a volt meter and ground straps to test it right, then I would try changing the sockets out. Quick and easy. Let us know how it goes.

Left blinker problems


That's an issue with wiring somewhere alont the line. There has to be a short somewhere. Hopefully for you the short is from the new taillight assembly being installed and it would be relatively easy to get to. Hope it helps!
