Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

No dash lights when headlights are turned on. Everything works fine on my vehicle EXCEPT today the panel lights don't work. Turn signals, hazard blinker, oil gauge, rpm gauge, speedometer, drive shift gear lights, headlights, clock display, radio, CD/Cassette, A/C & all else are fine. Car runs fine. It's just the panel lights stopped working suddenly & won't come back on. Everything works I just can NOT see the speedometer or gauges or anything on the dash at night. (except the led odometer, gear shift position indicator, and the clock on the radio are on and dim and brighten as normal) . HELP!

    "I know ab out the dimmer for the dash lights and it is not off and does control the led Odometer, gear shift position indicator, and clock on the radio just fine. It will turn on and off the overhead lights as well. All dash back lighting does not work."

There is a regulator for the display brightness, you may have it turn'd down or it has stopped working;. it controls the brightness at which the dash lights are. usually has a speedo sign on it. goes up and down. it works with the main light and is conecter to them on the same lighting board if it has gone then a new light swtch control switch will be needed.

Check the fuse for those items that don't work.

Right front side turn signal does not work replaced all bulbs and checked fuses headlight flashers work when hazards are on front to back except driverside turn signal ,in dash right stays solid left


I don't believe it would be a bad ground for just one light. It could be a wire, a socket connector, or the bulb socket itself. See if the wire has power at the socket when signaling left, with key on. If there is power, probably a bad socket or connector. If no power, check for power coming from flasher-the wire going to front left, or driver's side. If you have power from the flasher, but nothing at the socket, the wire has probably broken.
Good luck.

1994 Pontiac Grand am Tailights all work normaly except when the headlights are on and then they don't work at all?


Could be the headlight switch.
The switch has two sets of contacts for the parking lights, the park position and headlight position.
You may need to check the circuit at the switch to see if you are loosing power when the switch is moved from park to head.

Rear brakelights and turn signals do not work


The turn signal and brake lights are controlled by the turn signal switch.
You did not mention parking lights so I will assume they work.

Could be a faulty turn signal switch or a wiring problem between the dash and the rear of the van.
Do the hazard flashers work on all four corners ?

Turn signals were working...but blinking fast. now they don't work at all...replaced fuse in side panel near door and still nothing. Everything else works..headlights, wipers, hazards..what gives?


you have a separate flasher for the turn signals.this is what your problem sounds like.if all your lights are working including the signal indicator on the dash then it will be the signal flasher.if you turn on the hazard flashers and locate it under the dash, this will show you what the turn signal flasher will look like.then you will have to look for the flasher unit on the fuse panel that looks like the hazard flasher.replace the turn signal flasher and you will have your signal flashers again

No Dash lights, or tail lights. All fuses and bulbs are good. Headlights and turn signals fine. Very confused....please help.


Sounds as if you may have a short did you check the bulbs? I would check the bulbs and make sure they are good. when you lift the rear hatch lid search around the wires and see if you have a exposed wire or perhaps a loose wire connection. Allot of times wires in a vehicle that year start getting frayed and worn from putting different items in the rear of the vehicle.

My blinkers stopped working. At first I had to manually "blink" them, today they wont turn on. The hazards work fine. Its a 1992 roadmaster estate wagon.


Your fuse is blown or the flasher relay is defective or both. Check the fuse first and replace as nexessary. Note that this vehicle has 2 flasher relays, one for the turn signals and one for the hazard lights. The turn signal flasher relay is located on the driver's side, under the dash above the kick panel, mounted in the top of the fuse panel. The hazard relay is located same place on the bottom of the fuse panel so do not get them mixed up.

1996 Ford Windstar tail lights and dash lights stopped working


No. All those lights are on the same fuse and are controlled by the headlamp switch.

Make sure that the fuses were all checked on the fuse panel inside the vehicle under the dash. That is where the fuse for those lights is.

Hazards stuck, dash is dark when headlights on


I had a similar problem with my 2002 Taurus. I removed the dash and pulled out the display behind the steering wheel. I reseated all the light bulbs behind the display. Everything has worked fine since. You will find more info on how to do this if you search the internet.
