    Check the wiring connectors for corrosion. It's common on these models. Spraying it with penetrating oil usually helps

You may have a short somewhere in your wiring. Check to see if you did not blow a fuse. If the fuses are good it may have blown your bulbs. Make sure that your fuses are the proper amperage for the needs of the system.

2003 Pontiac Vibe no tail lights, brake lights and turn signals work just fine. The dimmer switch does not dim the dash lights but does work the dome just fineand the lights for the Heat/AC are off.


The tail lights work off the headlight switch, and there is a fuse for the tail lights. Make sure the fuse is good, first, a 15 amp (blue) fuse in the instrument panel fuse block. Then, you might have a bad headlight switch.
So you DO have dash lights, they just don't dim from the dimmer switch? In the wiring diagram, there is a green wire from a "tail light relay" (in the "Junction Block-Right Instrument Panel") that carries power to all the exterior lamps, as well as having a splice to the Instrument Panel Cluster (illum. bulbs), and to the lamp dimmer, and to the radio bulb.
To do any further testing, you would need a voltmeter or a test light, so you could chase down this power loss. Good luck.

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.

What started this mess? tailights, fog lights, brake lights....


The relay has nothing to do with the tail lights, but replacing the switch sounds like a good idea. There's a nut holding it in place, see http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/switches/switch-headlight/1027524/ to get an idea of the construction. And the price. This is not worth fiddling about unreliable workarounds...
In addition, if fuses 15 and/or 16 burn frequently there might be a problem with the tail light cabling.

Good luck

The dome lights and headlights blink off and on. I can't drive car at night because of this. There seems to be a buzzing noise coming from the headlight area.


If both the headlights and dome light are affected i would suspect the haedlight switch. That is the part that would be linked to both issue. Door jam switchs would affect the dome light but not the headlights.

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.
