Hi,

You might have a short to ground, make sure none of the hot wires are able to touch anything, including the body/floor/pannels, etc. If you put any screws into the car back there, check to see if you hit a wiring harness.

Most likely, you have the sub sitting on the harness and have damaged it. Take the sub back out and look underneath for a wiring harness. Repair it and attempt to reroute it, or place a board on each side of the harness to place the sub on.

If you continue to install oversized fuses, you will be able to find the problem easily: Smoke will be coming out. You need to find it and repair it before it causes more damage to the wiring harness, or worse, starts a fire!

It is also possible that the sub has slid into the back of the light sockets and caused damage. I am an ASE Certified Master Technician with over 30 years in the field.
Thank You

I have a 2003 suzuki xl7 what causes the tail lights not to work when ive checked the bulbs and fuses and they are good


it can only be 3 things, blown fuse, (test them not gander)
open circuit or short circuit.
are you saying park running lights are dead, aka, TAIL.
are the park lights working up front, ? and on dash?
1st click of head light switch is park. that is dead,at all lamp inside and outside of car?
02 xl7 (usa car answers, we do, here, as it is a USA forum)

this car has a BCM, body brain.
and it runs most things, we scan it first to see if IT has issues.
called DTCs.
when you select TAIL, at switch this is a digital input to BCM
true (0v = true) signal tells BCM you want tail/ parks on.

it (BCM) then closes relay 23 (seen below) park/tail relay
if the fuse is not blown, then this relay glows the dash
Illumination lights (park dim) are yours glowing now.
yes the all that is good fuse to dash.
now out side car, lots of tail/park lamps, which dont glow, just rear?

I have a 97 nissan pickup and the head lights will not turn on, an the tail lights will not shut off. had to take fuse out to turn off tail lights. turn signal switch??


Yes it sounds like the switch is stuck in the park position.
You could pull the harness plug for the switch and check the circuits with a meter, or replace the switch.

What make all the lights go out on 1987 nissan zx


My guess would be one of the main fuses for the headlight switch, or the headlight switch itself.

The dash lights and tail lights are not working but everything else lights properly. All the fuses are good. What next?


dash lights, tail lights, park lights and plate lights do share the same source of power for pickups.
try to replace your dash light and tail light bulbs, it would probably solve your problem.

Where is the fuse for dash lights?


Right side of engine compartment is a fuse box. It is a 15 amp mini fuse that is marked tail lights. I cant for the life of me figure out why they put the dash board, head light on alarm, and tail lights on the same fuse

Parking light fuse


It should be fuse #36 (10 amp) in the box under dash. Its marked illum. lights. If it was blown and it blows again after you replace it you have a short somewhere in the circuit. P.S. your owners manual should give you fuse locations.
