    I have similar problem with my xj8 sport 2000. No side lights front or rear & no number plate lights. All lights on dash fine. Checked fuses / bulbs & all fine but no power going to them. Help.

    Exact same thing! No tail lights, dash lights (radio, heater, etc), brake lights are okay, headlights are okay. Need options to fix! :)

SOURCE: left blinker light stays on solid when headlights are on

I have had this happen and it is rare, but I have had a filiment burn out in a two filment buld and short to the other filiment. It does happen and I think this might be your problem, the only way to find it is a visual inspection of each bulb. I am sure many people will think this is crazy, but I have had the exact same problem, I had the schematics, tested the circuits,etc. and them by accident found a stop/blinker 1157 bulb that had done this exact thing. I hope this helps you, check the bulbs in your headlights also.

SOURCE: '91 Subaru: dash & running lights won't turn on with headlights

This is a problewm I have been researching. On the 91 Loyale there are two headlight relays. The relay for the left headlight also controls the instrument lights and the running lights. If the right relay is working and the left is not, the left headlight will be dim because of a back electrical path through the high beam indicator light on the dash, but the instrument and running lights will be out. I have been trying to find out where Subaru put these relays, but three Subaru service departments have been no help. One dealer's service department told me to remove the large bezel around the instrument panel. I did and the relays weren't there. Lots of luck.

Headlights and backlights on my 1998 Toyota Camry stopped working


The headlight switch is most likely the culprit. It operates a relay that actually turns on the headlights Look in the fuse box for a burned out fuse. If it is not burned then suspect the switch

Tail light doesnt turn on with headlights but works fine as a break light and turn signal, why?


in the rear lights you may have two bulbs one is the turn signal the other one is stop light / tail light the stop light / tail light has two filaments, one for the stop light (21 watt) & one for the tail light (5 watt) it is possible that the tail light filament is blown, try replacing the bulb to see if that fixes the problem,also check all the fuses as well.......hope this helps......cheers.

1998 Jeep Wrangler Sport tail lights don't work. Stop lamps, turn signals, reverse lamps all work. Everything seems to work except the tail lights.


if the bulbs are good, the only thing left is the headlight switch, or wires. black/yellow wires from the switch all the way back to bulbs. ck power to the bulbs first. if no power, then ck power at switch.

1996 Ford Windstar tail lights and dash lights stopped working


No. All those lights are on the same fuse and are controlled by the headlamp switch.

Make sure that the fuses were all checked on the fuse panel inside the vehicle under the dash. That is where the fuse for those lights is.

Tail lights not working


Sounds like a bad headlight switch. Pull one from a donor vehicle (junk yard) to replace yours.

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Left Tail/Stop Light Inop.


You need to check for power and ground. If you dont have a volt meter you can get a good cheap one from radio shack. If there is no power recheck with a known good ground. All the lights on that side share a common ground. Check the sockets for signs of burning or corrosion. There is a plug in the left rear quater panell. If you have no power check the corrisponding wire at that connector. The wires splice togeter just before the connector. So if the other brake/tail light is working you know the problem is after that. Hope this helps. Im sure you'll find the problem.
