Hello,

So--there is no back-light on the heat panel and roof mounted display?
Similarly to a gauge cluster--there are bulbs that produce the back-light. I have a 90's vehicle and I had to replace the bulbs in the heat panel and on the gauge cluster. On some vehicles however you have to take the whole car apart just to access these bulbs. So--just take your time, consult a book, and check the bulbs to see if this is the culprit.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Tail lights don't work on 1998 Chevy Silverado.

check the wiring from the tailights back to the fuse panel, it sounds like an open connection. if i recall correctly check under the dash on the drivers side near the fuse panel for a bunch of wires in a bundle and look carefully for a wire or two that are cut/shorted/or seperated, you can also check under the drivers side kick panel by the hood release.

If you open other doors besides the driver door do the lights work? If so the door ajar switch is defective in the driver door. Also can you turn on the interior lights from the headlight switch control?

Only the headlights work no exterior or interior. the lights come on when you open the door.


More than likely a bad headlight switch. check the fuses first, spray some WD40 into the switch second, and third; replace the headlight switch.

Hi, try disconnecting the connector from the headlight switch. If this doesn't turn the lights off, the problem is the body control module. If disconnecting the headlight switch DOES turn the lights orff, replace the headlight switch. You can probably get a used body control module from a salvage yard. They may also have the headlight switch, but you can get those at your local parts chain. To access the switch, pull the bezel straight out as shown below. The BCM is behind the fuse panel as shown below. Please let me know if you have any questions, anmd thanks for using FixYa.

1996 ford probe passenger electric window no longer works.


you blew the fuse for your radio.you cannot put a hot wire to a ground that is why the fuse blew.you could have broken a wire connector for the door,windows etc.the headlight switch wire harness is probably melted this happens a lot on Ford products,the head light draw so much heat they melt the wire harness plug that goes on the back of the headlight switch.
