Without having more info on car i'll kind of generalize, it sounds to me like it's either the switch or a multiplex issue where is your switch located on the dash or on a multifunction switch coming off the steering column?

SOURCE: 1986 Toyota Pickup Instrument lights and tail lights out

Even though the relay is activated,I assumed you checked the out put?Also,You checked the voltage at the light sockets?With a meter,or test light ,check the fuse for the cluster lps,adjust them to dim,and to bright,the meter should act accordingly on the fuse.If it does not,replace the dimmer control,or head light switch,witch ever controls them.This may allow continuity to the tail lights as well.If the fuse is dead for the cluster lights,replacing the dimmer control,or head light switch will solve the problem,or,from another fuse ,supply voltage to the cluster lp fuse,one that is only hot with the key on,cause if you do this the dash lights will come on,every time you run the vehicle,day,or night.

I have no headlights, taillights, cluster lights and speedometer has stop working?


Have you checked applicable fuses for everything except head lamps? The headlamps themselves don't use a fuse. Check the battery junction block under the hood, one of your positive battery cables should go to junction block. If several fusible links check them. My info shows red wire carries battery voltage to head lamp switch for headlamps. The headlamp switch has two voltage circuits, mainly, one for the head lamps, for the other lamps that the switch controls, those smaller lamps are fuse protected.

Is the ECM/PCM the computer for 2001 Dodge Durango? If so, will it make my headlights and taillights work?


Head lights and tail lights usually work on a separate system to your cars computer. Reason being is the amount of amps. Far too much for a computer to handle. I would be checking fuses and relays. If they test as OK, then you will need to install a new headlight switch

I got a 2000 cavalier 2.2 and my headlights stopped working i still have running lights taillights and breaklights .havent had blinkers for awhile .checked fuses all good bought a multiarm and that did...


Relay switches are sometimes located in the fuse panel box or under the hood of the vehicle, look for a 12 to 14 inch long black box, you will have to take the top off and the relays and fuses should be there. Make sure the wiring connections to the lights and other components having problems with have good tight connections. Hope this Helps.

High Beam headlights don't work, Taillights don't work, Brake lights don't work, Cruise control doesn't work.


Hi Harlan.

I see that you mentioned a 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan in your other question. I assume this question is about the same vehicle.

The checkup will start from the fuse and relay in the power distribution center. A way to test the relays is swapping two relays of the same kind to check if that makes any difference.
If relay and fuse are OK check the wiring to power distribution center, check the dimmer switch and the connection to BCM (the module under the dash).

I have uploaded relay map and wiring diagram at this link. Please click on the link. If necessary click on the picture again to enlarge.

Regards.

check your fuses under the steering columb area, and also check fuses and relays, that is located in a power distribution black box under the hood, on the drivers side.

Taillights only turn on with the headlights, but don't turn on for braking or signals. I've checked all the fuse and relays and they are fine. Any Suggestions?


Those lights are called running lights. Have you tried new bulbs or test the wires coming into the socket for power.

Some fords have fuses for taillights, check there too.

No light in the dasboard and taillights , But headlights do work


take out the 2 phillips screws that hold in the cluster.there are some bulbs in the back of it,look and see that they are all ok.
the tail lights operate on a separate circuit,but the headlight switch could be bad, as it operates both of those sets of lights in the park and lights on settings.check all the fuses and relays in the fuse box under the hood and lower left kick panel

Dash lights and taillights out fuses all ok


In battery junction box or the under hood fuse panel check fuse no 11(15amp),it will be at the center of the fuse box where there is 4 fuse slots but looks like only 3 fuses, if this fuse in good then you will see a relay that is shaped kinda like a cross.This is the parklamp relay which also powers the dash lights.

Chevy k10 headlight/taillight problem


the fuses are located on the left side of the drivers foot well. these trucks have problems with rot and when they start to fall apart the beds move around and short out the taillights and youll usually lose the dash lights with the tails but the headlights are separate.
