2000 elantra dash lights dont work. left tail light and front marker light dont work

After changing my stereo in a 2000 elantra. It worked but once it reached night time and i went to use my headlights. when i hit the switch i smelt something burn and looked down and had no dash lights. I also have a left tail light out and my front left marker light. Both my brake light and Turn signal are okay. I figure i wired something wrong. But could this be the interior dimmer switch burnt up? headlight switch?

Something between your lights and accessories (a wire) were crossed and it burnt out the wire. check your wires again, go to a website for your vehicle and see if you can find a wire diagram of your vehicle.

SOURCE: bulbs keep burning out

When you replace headlights in today's cars, DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS OF THE BULB!. Handle the bulb only with the packing material the bulb ships in, or with a clean dry cloth.The oils in your skin will cause premature failure of the bulb.

Also, check the sockets (car side) carefully to make sure they are not burned.

SOURCE: 98 elantra will not start and headlights dont work

Check that the battery connections are tight and secure. If yes, check the starter motor connectors and check current to the starter while the ignition key is turned. If there is no current, try wiring the starter directly to the battery. If it turns, then the problem is in the wiring or it could be the starter motor fuse. If the starter does not turn, remove the starter and take it to an auto parts store for testing.

SOURCE: Tail lights work, brake lights don't... sometimes

Intermit problems can be a night mare. It does sound like the brake light switch is what causing the problem. You have a good chance a voltage drop test would tell if the switch is what causing the problem. Depending on the price of the brake light switch I would take a gamble and replace it.

SOURCE: Recently had purcahsed an 02

so the guy at the parts store, who was making pizza the week before, just made your problem worse.
now you turn to an anonymous oracle? you need to have someone who knows what they are doing take a look at it before some other ******** cripples it from running.

take it to a dealer service department and pay them a hundred bucks to run a diagnostic on it and give you a list of what is wrong, and a price list of how much to fix each problem. with that list in hand, go back to the parts store and start buying and installing the correct parts. you will save the cost of the diagnostic by not replacing good parts. be prepared to find out some parts can not be had at a parts store, and some of them may require taking the dashboard out in order to fix.

SOURCE: left headlight, dash lights, and both tail lights do no illuminate. brake lights and high beams work fine. what would cause this to happen, fuses are good.

Most certainly a wiring fault, you need a wiring diagram, these items are related as in all on same circuit. Check rear of fuse box.

The only thing that both the brake lights and tail lights use is a ground connection. Keep in mind the warning light on the dash may be for any exterior lamp. You may need to check the sockets and grounds on all four corners of the car.

Brake lights work but tail lights won't work with front lights which are needed at night on 2000 Chevy Malibu! When inspected, everything was fine until inspector changed my left tail light. Now tail...


The Tail lights and Instrument lights are usually on the same circuit so both will go out if the fuse for the circuit blows. Check for a blown fuse for this circuit and replace if out. If fuse continues to fail, check the tail light or side globes for a faulty globe and replace if necessary. Also check for any chafed wires that could be shorting to the body causing the fuse to blow.

I HAVE A 1993 NISSAN PICKUP, TAIL LIGHTS WON'T WORK. AS SOON AS THE SWITCH IS TURNED ON, THE FUSE BLOWS. BRAKE LIGHTS WORK, BACKUP LIGHTS WORK AND THE MARKER LIGHTS WORK. ANY SUGGESTIONS. THANKS


Check any trailer light splices. check bulbs somtimes they can short internally.
If the truck has been in any collisions in the past, take a look at the effected area. front park lights are aleo included on that circuit

Sounds like a blown fuse....go through them and see which one is blown or check your owners manual..it will tell you what fuse is used for what and will save you on the guess work.

I have a 2003 pontic grand am i dont know why the interor lights, dash lights, and tail lights, aren t working at all! break lights work. right turn light works, left turn light clicks like 4 times faster...


The headlight switch is common to all your problems except the quick flash of the turn lights on one side the quick flash is usally a bad bulb as the tailights have two and one could be out and it'll still work just it changes the flash quicker with no load too little and it'll not blink just stay on. Theres fuses for the dash lights but the tailight fuse has to be good for it to get power. Any crash damaged lights need to be checked out as water getting into the sockets can mke a problem. The marker lights on the front do'nt work either. Fuse or headlight switch now remember that the radio has a light in it too and if someones changed the radio alot of aftermarkey readios don't use the run light as they are on withthe radio on and this wire may be touchin ground or be hooked up wrong at the lights the wire color is brown. It's highly unlikly that alot of bulbs failed at one but the car is old. Start with fuses and if the tail fuse is blown and it has an odd radio pull it disconnect it and try another fuse

Marker lights, tail lights and dash lights do not work


I had a similar nagging problem once, though I do not recall the dashlights being involved. For me, the lines from the brakes went up the steering column to the turn signal. I pulled the wheel and inspected all the connections, and just like that everything worked again. I believe I could have tugged on the wiring harness without pulling hte wheel and obtained the same results.
