The problem is most likely in the dimmer switch. Roll the switch back and forth to "clean out" the dirt in the switch that is causing the short. Most likely the problem will reappear from time to time, just repeat until dirt gets lodged in area that does not cause problems, lol.

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 ?

I have a warning light on on the dashboard no manuel so I don't know what it is..... Can you show me the symbols??


okay let me tell you and i will try to show you them. first is the check engine light which is a yelloe symbol of a small engine, this means theres a problem with the engine operation or emmisions system. this you can go to an auto parts store and they will scan the cars computer for codes and give you a print out. i can help you further with the codes, next is the anti braking system which doesnt allow the wheels to skid in heavy braking or snow and ice, this symbol will say ABS.nextis the red brake light which will say BRAKE in red and will sometimes come on with the yellow ABS light this light if on alone means you are low on brake fluid, which means a leak or low brakes and you need to have the brake system checked asap, the rest of the light are low coolant, trac, which is in the ****** and controls the traction control, this light will come on if this cars has it when the abs or engine light is on because the computer shuts it done when theres a problem.hope this helps.heres a good site that will show you all lights and what they mean there are alot depending on the car. hope this is helpful.http://www.autoevolution.com/news/how-to-read-the-dashboard-lights-1370.html

The VCS and Abs Indicator light came on this morning while driving in traffic this morning on a wet road-what does that mean on my 2006 Rav 4 that has 30,000 miles ?


If the lights went back off it means that the systems were activated due to road conditions, did their job, and then returned to their normal standby mode. If the lights remain on you need to have the vehicle's OBD computer read for trouble codes and then determine if any repairs are necessary. You can have the codes read at your dealer, your qualified mechanic, or at many auto parts stores.

I have 4 sensor lights on ABS, brake, VCS and skid light. I have new brakes and they are fine. Also, my cruise will not set


The abs , traction control , transmission and cruise are all connected. You will need to have codes pulled to even know where to start.
