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.

My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?


fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

Tail, side and dash board lights not working


Not totally positive but I believe on your Toyota there are two places that fuses are located. You stated that all fuses under the bonnet are fine and I assume that means under the hood. The other place to check for a blown fuse would be under the dash instrument panel usually located directly above where your left knee would be while sitting in the drivers seat. Hope this is of some help. Good. Luck.

My brake lights work but my tail lights and reverse lights don't work. Also my dash lights quit when I changed the switch for my headlights.


Check your fuses. I had the same problem with a 90 Honda civic. Dash lights went out, tail lights also went out. Replaced 1 fuse and all came back on.

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.

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.

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.
