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

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.

Testimonial: "GAVE ME GOOD OPTIONS TO CHECK. NEEDED FUSE PANEL LAYOUT. THANK!"
I had the same problem and the flasher is not located in the fuse box because it is not a normal flasher. the cougar has an electronic flasher unit that is located on the left side of the center console. the best and cheapest place to order a new one is amazon.com. they run about $30-$40

It could either be the switch in the control panel, or the relay switch, and I don't have my manual at the moment to tell you which relay it is.

SOURCE: No dash or tail lights
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!

THE PROBLEM IS THE DASH LIGHT DIMMER CONTROL IS EITHER TURNED OFF OR THE DIMMER IS DEFECTIVE, HAVE SEEN BOTH. THE DIMMER IS NEXT TO THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH
