2002 Ford Taurus Problems

My driver side window, driver side tail light, and dash lights on my '02 Taurus SE don't work anymore. I have a feeling it is my master switch, because for a little while, if i tinkered with it, my window would work, and my dash lights would come on when they wanted, but after tinkering with it so much it did nothing... that's when my tail light when out. Are these at all connected? I know my bulb in the tail light is still good, we checked.

    Hi nichollemarz, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Not related. Window motor is probably bad. Tail light needs to be checked for voltage at the socket. Instrument lights most likely the dimmer has failed.

You have a bad connector or wire. Use a multimeter to check the wire and connectors from both lights. My bet is on the wire.

Replace the fuse. Most of the time when the tail light fuse is blown it will go un-noticed. This is why they combine the instrument cluster lighting, and tail lights on the same fuse. That way if the dash lights are out you know the tail lights must be out also.

SOURCE: 95 ford taurus tail lights, license plate light

Why don't you take a peek under the dash, around the brake pedal? Maybe it's just a loose connection. If you don't find anything obvious then you need to get a copy of the wiring diagram for the car.

If I dont mistake, the license plate lights and tailights are both on the same harness so that may be a bulb due to a surge with your issue.

Was it just your cluster lights only that went out or was it the whole dash, such as radio and HVAC control lights as well? Try using a voltmeter on the tail/brake light plugs when the brake is pressed and see if you get any readings, while the plugs are out check the bulbs just in case. a bad ground or electrical surge can casue these kind of issues, but check these things first and let us know, I will check the factory electrical manual for you on those items to be sure.

Keep us updated.

There are 2 fuse boxes on that car, one under the hood (bonnet), and one under the dash on the drivers side. Check all the fuses with a test light, while the car is running.

FUSES KEEP BLOWING FOR THE DASH AND TAIL LIGHTS


your lights are grounding out some where you will have to check for a dead short in the wiring use a volt meter in the resitance mode and track through you power side of the lights untill you find your dead short, start at the back and work your way to the fuse box pull the fuse and follow the wire. there is a short in it it will just take some time going through look for worn coating, cracks, or melted.
good luck & and happy hunting
