Likely a failed lighting module...That's where all that stuff is tied together. It's only my opinion, but all this stuff belongs in spaceships...just too unreliable to use in cars (especially when it replaces stuff that used to work 99% of the time!!!)

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 ?

Yes, transient current. Typically happens with damaged taillight bulbs, or poor ground. SO, when you step on the brake, rather than the current going to ground after the stop element, it goes into (and powers up) the running lights, of which dash lights are part of....
Look for ground issues, run external ground if needed, for testing purposes..

Cant get my 1993 nissan altima out of park


is your battery dead? turn your headlights on. do they work? if not,then the battery is dead. your car will not come out of park unless the brake lights come on. if the batterys dead,the brake lights will not come on. try a boost from another car. another solution,brake light fuse is blown.look under the dash or on driverside dash panel for fuse panel. look for a brake kight fuse that's blown. have you tryed applying the brake pedal with car off to see if the brake lights come on?hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

I have seen this before and found the Dash insert is defective, Go to address 17 and carry out a final control segment test for the dash when the fault occurs also make sure there are no battery management fault codes.

Restriction of functions
The following are deactivated in the event of
active load intervention by the battery and
energy management system:
- Interior lighting
- Sunroof
- Light/humidity sensor
- Interior mirror

Check you ambient in car lighting settings in the mmi user functions for current settings

Park brake uses 58d terminal and the rest use 58s terminal from memory

When brakes are applied parking and dash board lights come on.when headlights are on,brake lights and tail lights do not work.very first symptom was an intermittent tail or brake light out indicator...


you might have an open ground wire on your brake/tail lights .. when you apply the brakes then power would flow thru the brake light (not see ground) so would then provide power backwards thru the parking light (common ground open) to all the other things connected to the parking lights .. like the other parking lights and dash ... when you turn power on to those things (headlights on) then there is 12 volts on both sides of the light .. thats why the lights quit working ... if the missing ground is the problem then most of the lights that are improperly turning on should be at a lowered brightness level.. interesting problem .. its also possible to have a brake light bulb that has the common ground open inside or not making connection with its socket .. i would start by removing the brake lamps and see if the problem goes away .. if it does look for a broken ground or damaged lamp ..
