SOURCE: No tail, running lights.

The socket for the headlite switch is bad or burned or deterioted due to heat. What happens that there is no good contact. You will have to replace the socket. The socket may not be available from the dealer. What you can do, just like what I did, check your socket design, go to a ford dealer and they have a book with all socket designs and identify the one you have. Get the manufacturer name and part number. With this information, go to Kragen and they will be able to order the socket for you. You will then have to cut the wires and attach the new socket.

With headlights on my tail lights dim, left brake light doesn't work and left turn signal blinks fast but with headlights off everything works properly.


this indicates a problem battery (have a load test done on it) , drive belt adjustment or condition or problem alternator out put
with the head lights on there is insufficient capacity from the battery and/or alternator to keep everything running as it should

Why do I have problems with the electrical dim headlights, no tail lights. The turn signals & brake lights work but the instrument panel won't light. Have checked all fuses & ground wires. Wha


With out tracing the wiring/voltages its not possible to be sure, but the likely cause is the headlight switch ... assuming you didn't miss any fuses/circuit breakers. Turn signals and brake lights are on an entirely different circuit; so thats not really relevant. The panel, tail, and head lights are all operated thru the same switch (though likely different contacts in that switch), so to be sure you should verify power into the switch vs no power out before replacing it. Hope that helps.

Dash and tail lights not workjng brake and turn signal on passanger side not working


The dash and tail lights are on two different circuits, and the brake and turn signals are on different circuits, so at least 4 circuits total.
I would start at the headlight switch and check for power on the first two issues.

I have a 1977 Ford E-150, when I turn on the headlights I have no turn signal lights and no brake lights. With the headlights off the turn signals work fine and the brake lights are fine. My idea is brake...


Well, the headlight switch would have no connection to the brake and turn signals. But you could have a ground problem somewhere.
I would want to trace the circuit from the brake switch to the tail lamps with the headlights on to verify.
And does it matter if you are using headlights or just parking lights.

1993 chevy silverado parking lamps go of when i turn on headlights, signal lights flicker when i press on brake.


Yes I would look for a ground circuit problem. I would look at the ground wires for the headlights first. Even run a new ground wire for the tail lights to see if it helps.
Could be a ground connection for the body to frame or body to battery.

Headlight switch on makes tail light dim


there must be a short circuit which powers tail lights and brake lights. probably you have a dual filament bulbs which have both brake and tail light together. check for bulb, socket/or bulb housing and harness of that light.

Brake lights dont work, Turn Signals all goofy


First thing i would do is chg. the break light switch, and make sure to chk. all grounds around tailights, sometimes if there is a ground problem it will travel back thru the hot wire to get a ground, witch in turn makes everything go wackey.
