If the ALT FUSEand TAIL FUSE are good, the taillight relay may have failed. If the STOP FUSE is good, the stoplight switch may have failed.

Thing to check. cable broken or joint came apart, no power coming to lights, check both end of fuses with a trouble light, may look ok but be open circuit , check battery voltage at tail light and stop light switch , if none fault in cable to b+, if ok fault in cable to rear lights, check earth to rear lights.

SOURCE: tail light stop working on my 92' toyota camry

In the car trunk, there may be a electrical relay box behind the panel on the left side. It is usually no bigger than 4 inches by 4 inches and yellow in color. This is present in 1987-1991 Toyota Camrys and is generally not in most repair manuals. This yellow electrical relay box may have burnt out. Best place to pick one up at an inexpensive price is at the car wrecking or salvage yard. It is very expensive at the dealer. It is easy to replace with no special tools required. I have done this on my 1991 Camry,

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.

2003 Pontiac Vibe no tail lights, brake lights and turn signals work just fine. The dimmer switch does not dim the dash lights but does work the dome just fineand the lights for the Heat/AC are off.


The tail lights work off the headlight switch, and there is a fuse for the tail lights. Make sure the fuse is good, first, a 15 amp (blue) fuse in the instrument panel fuse block. Then, you might have a bad headlight switch.
So you DO have dash lights, they just don't dim from the dimmer switch? In the wiring diagram, there is a green wire from a "tail light relay" (in the "Junction Block-Right Instrument Panel") that carries power to all the exterior lamps, as well as having a splice to the Instrument Panel Cluster (illum. bulbs), and to the lamp dimmer, and to the radio bulb.
To do any further testing, you would need a voltmeter or a test light, so you could chase down this power loss. Good luck.

No dash lights or tail lights


Well it could always be a wiring problem, but you were right in thinking it was the headlight switch. Each circuit is different and only joins up in the headlight switch. Each circuit has a fuse sending power to the switch. So I would want to know if you have power in and out of the headlight switch on each circuit.

Test for voltage going into and out of the hi/low switch. If you have voltage at the headlights, check the ground wires.

Dashboard lights and tail lights don't work 95 toyota corolla


The circuits are on two different fuses, but both are controlled by the headlight switch. I would check for power at those fuses then at the switch.

What started this mess? tailights, fog lights, brake lights....


The relay has nothing to do with the tail lights, but replacing the switch sounds like a good idea. There's a nut holding it in place, see http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/switches/switch-headlight/1027524/ to get an idea of the construction. And the price. This is not worth fiddling about unreliable workarounds...
In addition, if fuses 15 and/or 16 burn frequently there might be a problem with the tail light cabling.

Good luck
