SOURCE: tail lights and dash lights not working

there are a few fuses under the hood be sure to check fuses again at dash they could look good but not be and if one was blown it could have blown as soon as you turned them on again that would indicate a short. it could be the switch also if it is the pull type try pulling it slowly to see if they come on and turning it like to dim the dash lights. if that makes them come on you need a new switch sometimes it will work sometimes not

SOURCE: brake lights stay on all the time. tail light 95 mercury villager

Just had the same thing happen to our minivan.......went to the Nissan dealer, since the Villager and the Nissan are the same van, and they actually had the parts in stock. Tell them what is wrong and have them pull up the schematic. You need 2 plastic buttons that push in the holes by the brake pedal. It cost about $10 for the 2 of them.

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: no dash or tail lights. they share a common fuse.

My recollection from owning a Lincoln Continental is you need to change a switch in the steering column most of those wiring are tied into it.

2003 Pontiac Vibe no tail lights, brake lights and turn signals work just fine. The dimmer switch does not dim the dash lights but does work the dome just fineand the lights for the Heat/AC are off.


The tail lights work off the headlight switch, and there is a fuse for the tail lights. Make sure the fuse is good, first, a 15 amp (blue) fuse in the instrument panel fuse block. Then, you might have a bad headlight switch.
So you DO have dash lights, they just don't dim from the dimmer switch? In the wiring diagram, there is a green wire from a "tail light relay" (in the "Junction Block-Right Instrument Panel") that carries power to all the exterior lamps, as well as having a splice to the Instrument Panel Cluster (illum. bulbs), and to the lamp dimmer, and to the radio bulb.
To do any further testing, you would need a voltmeter or a test light, so you could chase down this power loss. Good luck.

1994 silverado illumination on instrument panel doesn't work, parking lights and tail lights do not work but headlights and brakelights work fine. All fuses are good. Is this a bad dimmer switch?


No. Dash lights being out could be a bad headlight switch, since the dash lights are routed through the headlight switch, not the dimmer switch. Park and tail lights also controlled by the headlight switch.

I have no dash lights or rear running lights on my 01 monte carlo


Did you make sure that the dash light dimmer didnt get turned down.----------The other possibility is light switch on your dash.Pull it to the second position, this just turns on your dash lights along with your tail lights etc....try to pull it out manually if you dont and see if your tail lights come on......it maybe a bad light switch?Remove the switch and inspect, test the voltage to the switch..------------

2001 Monte Carlo SS 3.8 v6 Rear park lights are out as well as the dash lights, brake lights work headlights work front running and park lights work, all turn signal lights work. replaced headlight switch...


Park, Tail, Marker Lamps, and License
The park, tail and marker lamps, including the license lamps, turn on when the headlamp switch is placed in either the PARK or the HEAD position, or anytime the headlamps are requested. The RT I/P #1 fuse in the RH I/P fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to both the park lamp relay switch contacts and to the park lamp relay coil circuit. The park lamp relay coil is controlled by the body control module (BCM). When the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK position, the BCM energizes the park lamp relay coil control circuit.
Current flows from the park lamp relay switch to both front and rear park lamp fuses and to their respective park/tail lamps. The front park lamps are grounded at G101. The rear park lamps are grounded at G302. The license plate lamps are a part of the rear park lamp circuit and are grounded at G302. The inadvertent power control feature prevents the park lamps from remaining on more than 10 minutes if left on. If the park lamps are turned on after the ignition switch has been turned OFF, or is in the ACCY position, they will remain on until turned off or until the battery runs dead.

Did you the REAR PARK LP fuse 15 amp in the right insturment panel fuse box.

My 95 isuzu redeo has problems when I turn on the lights my dash lights go out and my tail lights don't work when lights off the tail lights work


bnagaki: Your dash, side marker and tail lights are all on the same circuit. When you say, that the tail lights work when you turn the light switch of, essentially what you have is the operation of your brake lights which are on a different circuit and the turn signals which are also on a different circuit. If you are loosing the lights that you are describing when you turn the light switch on, do they come on briefly? OR, they don't come on at all? If they don't come on at all, check the fuse for that circuit, it is a 10 amp fuse.
You may also have a problem with the head lamp switch it self.
That vehicle also had a tail light relay. It is located on the drivers side kick panel, second relay from the top. The dash lights have a dimmer switch that may be turned all the way down.
Good hunting.

1988 toyota pick up has no tail lights or dash lights


The tail light relay is under the plastic panel near the fuse box on the DRIVERS side. Yes I have had this problem. So in desperation I connected a wire from the battery to the lights, my wife continually ripped the wire out so I ran a hot wire to a switch and on to the running lights, turn the switch on and I have tail lights, then I noticed that with the switch off I could turn them on at the light switch. Possibly fumbling around reconnected something. I have tested every relay, fuse, wire for voltage and continuity and had zero results. Then the switch, who knew?
