Question about 1997 Lexus ES 300

1 Answer

Dash lights inoperative when headlights are on.

When the headlights are turned on, or put in auto mode and come on, the dash lights wont come on. When headlights are turned off (park lights on) the dash lights come back on. Just started happening with no intermittent signs of failing.

Tail lights, parking lights and dashboard lights on 2004 grand marquis are inoperative. Headlights, turn-signal lights, brake lights, hazard lights, back-up lights all work


Tail lights, parking lights and dash lights are all on the same circuit...I'd go to the fuse panel under the dash and check the fuse for those lights....usually referred to as accessory lighting in the owners manual and is usually a 10A fuse.

Hope this helps...

Dash and tail lights stopped working on my daughters 1991 toyota celica gt. the fuse has been checked and replaced. it was ok. the headlights were recently changed. is it true the dash and tail lights run...


If the tail lights and the dash lights stopped working and the tail light and the panel lighting fuses are both o.k. and you can find no other blown fuses then the problem is most likely the headlight switch.

Have you tried turning up the dash light dimmer switch as bright as it can go? I will dim slightly but will still be alluminated

Lights flashing, then not working at all


From what you are describing it sounds as if the headlight switch has gone bad.  That switch controls not only the headlights but the tail lights and all dash lights.  Everything that IS working is connected to other switches not related to the headlight switch.  You can either buy a new one or get a used one from a junk yard or ebay.  Pay particular attention when getting a replacement as there are 3 different models which vary depending on options such as Auto mode and Foglights.   Replacement is easy.  Using a flat screwdriver carefully pry off the trim cover around the switch. The switch is held in with some screws.  Be careful disconnecting the wires so as not to break the locking tabs. The trim just pushes firmly back into place.
