    problem is intermediate, fuse#11 in engine compartment cluster 15 amp will blow when head light switch is turned on, sometimes it will last 1 minute, sometimes it will last 3 days.

It sounds like you solved this one your self . It does sound like the switch has went bad, but also look for any lose or bad wires around the tail lights and the wire harness going to them.

Why did my parking lights and all dash lights quit 95 mustang


Most likely reason is that the tail light fuse blew out. The dash lights have a seperate fuse, but it is wired in series with the tail lights, so that if the tail light fuse blows, the instrument cluster lights also go out. The dash lights going out is sort of a warning to let you know to check your tail lights

2009 ford escape turn signals and brake lights work but no taillights checked bulbs look good no where in owners mannual does it list tailight fuse or location


I think your problem locating the fuse may be because Ford refers to the lights you are describing as "PARK" lamps, instead of "TAIL" lamps. The PARK fuse is Fuse #22 (15 Amp) located in the Smart Junction Box (SJB) in the center of the dash.

HINT: This same fuse also protects the circuits your front park lamps, if they are working, the fuse is not blown.

Tail lights wont come on keeps blowing fuse blows 10 amp 15 amp and even 5 amp fuses


put a 12 volt light bulb in place of the fuse. It will stay lit until you find the short circuit. Check tail and park light & side marker bulbs first.

How about if you just turn parking lights on, not headligths

All the lights work except the dash lights. The 5 amp fuses keep blowing and if I put a 15 amp it doesnt blow but no dash lights


DASH HAS A SHORT CIRCUIT.DASH NEED REPLACING BUT CHECK FOR SHORTS IN THE WIRES TO DASH.DONT PUT A LARGER AMP FUSE IN A CIRCUIT TO KEEP FROM BLOWING FUSE BECAUSE IF FUSE DONT BLOW WIRES GET HOT IN THE CIRCUIT THAT HAS A SHORT IN IT AND CAUSE A CAR FIRE.

you have another circuit piggybackin on the dash lights, my guess is a bad ground to the parking or tail lights, try unplugging the tail lights and front marker lights. if the fuse satys good you have it

No dash & tail lights


if your tail light's don't work it would be a stop switch it's right under the brake pedal.

1989 Ford Mustang no dash lights fuse blows when you go to high


I believe when you go to full brightness the dome light also turns on. If so check the dome light and door switches.
