Tail lights and dashlights have gone out

All fuses have been checked they worked fine until my uncle was messing with some wires under the center console. There was a spark from a wire and now there is no more power to the dash and tail lights

This is a Long shot at this Point But, Look in the Fuse Relay box under the Hood. There are Relays for these in there that could have Shorted out. If not the Problem could be inside the Computer.

WHAT CAUSES THE TAIL LIGHTS AND DASHLIGHTS TO GO OUT ON 1983 TOYOTA TRUCK?


GOOD ADVISE--I ALSO LEARNED THAT THERE MAY BE FUSES IN UNDER THE HOOD ALSO. FOUND OUT TODAY THAT IF THE DOME LIGHT DON'T WORK THEN IT'S FUSE COULD BE BLOWN AND HINDER THE CIRCUIT TOO. I'M NOT GOOD ON VOLTAGE READING , BUT DO HAVE A TEST LIGHT. IF NO FIRE AT THE COMMON TAIL LIGT-DASH LIGHT FUSE , THEN THAT MIGHT NARROW IT DOWN. I HAD THE SAME TROUBLE IN MY 1990 FORD XLT LARIAT AND WAS BLOWING THE TAILLIGHT FUSE. IT WAS A SHORT IN THE EXTERNAL TRAILER KIT HARNESS WHICH CAUSED FUSES TO BLOW REGUARLY. WHERE IS RELAY FOR TAILIGHTS AND OTHER FUSES UNDER THE HOOD??

1999 sentra gxe dont have tail lights or dash lights. Was blowing 10 amp fuses until someone put in a 15 amp fuse. now even with new fuses got no rears or dashlights


That was my first thought, too. But it would not "fry" the whole circuit, so don't give up yet, using the higher fuse may have just cost you one more step of finding the problem.
So is it still blowing a 10 amp fuse? Either way what you really need is someone with a voltmeter or multi-meter to track down where the power has been lost. Most cars have the tail (or park lights) and the dash illumination lights on the same circuit, therefore using the same fuse, so an electrician could start by checking if the fuse has power with tail light switch on, then checking the wire going up to the dash, and how the tail lights wire is spliced with that or separately from the fuse and then routed to the rear.
It always helps to have a wiring diagram, sometimes absolutely necessary with involved circuits. Your problem should be simpler, not so much to look after, although the colors of the tail light wires may be needed. The person with the voltmeter can follow the wires that way, sometimes you have to pull a harness apart to find the wires you need. It may take a little time, but anyone who knows how to use a voltmeter should be able to find the problem. It does take time, sometimes, alas.

My dash lights are not coming on and my tail lights are not coming on, but my blinkers, hazard lights, dome light, and break lights are working fine. all the fuses inside the car are fine, but there is one...


you have a short circuit somewhere that is causing the fuse to blow,it is most likely the headlights unless you have been messing with the dashlights,you will need to check all the headlight wiring to see if you can find the fault.......hope this helps......cheers

Brake lights work but not tail lights


Check your fuses. I'm betting if you have no tail lights, you have no dashlights either and that's a fuse. Also if you have trailer hitch & wiring, make sure trailer wiring isn't shorted or corroded

DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS WORK. AT NIGHT THE DASHLIGHTS AND TAILLIGHTS DONT WORK


First, check to make sure the light switch is in the "auto" position.
Second, check the under hood fuse center. There are 2 fuses in that fuse box, one for the right and one for the left tail lights.
Remove the fuses and make sure they are not blown.
Let me know what you find.
Regards,
