Question about 1994 Jeep Cherokee Country

Tail lights & dash lights not working on 1994 jeep cherokee

I checked all fuses and all are fine. I then fiddled with the headlight switch and noticed that I can get the tail lights and dash lights to work - but only when I pull the headlight switch out part way and even then it is very sensitive - so they only stay on if you are very careful to get the switch in just the right position. When I pull out the switch all the way for the head lights then the tail lights and dash lights turn off. I then replaced the headlight switch and the problem still exists!! Now I have no clue what to check for next. I have searched the net and found others with this same problem - but I have not yet found anyone with a solution.

Check with a dealer and see if your vehicle uses a body or lighting control module...These usless items are being used more and more, and causing all anticipated problems excessive electronics can cause, when used for "updating" time-proven working systems by "engineers". Otherwise, check plug on harness to make sure that connectors are clean and not melted or burned.

1994 dodge dakota my headlights and tail lights and brake lights don't work my abs and parking brake lights are on my dash lights don't work either I replaced the headlight switch and still no


These are all different circuits. The brake lights are on a 10amp fuse - the headlights are on a 50amp fuse - and the parking and dash lights are on a 20amp fuse.
Do you have power going into the headlight switch and the brake light switch ?

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 a 1989 cherokee the headlights, tail lights don't work


sounds like either a relay problem or a short. the only thing i can recommend is getting an electrical diagram for you vehical and following it and seeing if you can find any cuts in the wires or a broken fuse. It should be fairly simple to figure out a broken wire from a wire thats fine. good luck!

No dash lights or tail lights 94 jeep cherokee


this is a fuse I honestly believe check them with ohm meter. Lots of cars if you have a tail light out the dash light will not function also. I hope this helps

1994 Buick centry tail light and dash lights not working


By the info that you gave, I would have to say (guess) that it would be your wifes headlight switch. Because it is possible for the headlights to still work when the switch goes. The headlights, taillights, dash lights, dome light, and dimmer all work off the headlight switch and only part of the switch can go and the other part still be good and functioning. Hope this helps or at least, head you in the right direction to solve the issue. Best wishes.

there is a circuit breaker in your headlight switch so if your tail lights get shorted it wont burn out the wiring. and when these get older they get weak and shut down. just replace your headlight switch and all should be fine if you dont have a short.

Headlights and dash light dont work


You would have to check and see if you are getting any power out of the light switch. There is a seperate wire for the headlights and the dash lights.
