    Hi ivan olmo, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?
    Was this the reason you replaced the Hd. Light Sw. or has this happened since the replacement?

What we Know -
1: Regardless of whether the Hd. Lt. Sw. is On or Off, the Pk. Lts. stay on.
2: The only way to turn them Off is pull the fuse.

Therefore, for some reason, the Pk. Lt. fuse is alive all the time instead of only when the Hd. Lt. Sw. is on.

The most likely cause is at the fuse block. The wires going to the Pk. and Dash Lts. has been connected to the wrong fuse.
Using a meter or test light, locate the fuse that is only alive with the Pk. Lt. Sw. on. This is where the Pk. Lt. wires have to go.

The brakelights,dashlights and headlights all quit working on 1999 chevy lumina. The parking lights, turn signals snd high mount brakelight all work.


It sound like you may have a bad headlight switch. All of those other lights are wired though that switch as well. Be sure to check all fuses and headlight relay.

For 2009 Nissan Versa SL: Need to Disable Dashboard Lights


There may be a seperate fuse for that feature. The thing to try is find the fuse box. It is generally under the left hand side of the dash on thedriverside butthey have been known in some vehicles to be on the right hand side under the dash and even inside the glove compartment. There are some models that setup the fuse box under the hood as well. If you have an operating manual with your vehicle then the fuse box will be located in there.
Once you find the fuse box then try thist rick.
Locate instrument panel fuse. In this case there should be two with instrument panel listed but if not then it may be all in one fuse. What I woulddo is just turn thekey on so the lights you want off are shinning on so you can see them. Then one by one pull a fuse. If thelight stays on then replace the fuse back in the same spot you took it out of, Continue doing this one fuse at a time and replacing it back in the same spot until the dash lights go out. Then see what the fuse box says about that certain fuse and what all it operates. It may be that you can not disable the dash lights this way without disabling something else you need such as a blinker or heater or radio, but what I am hoping is it has its own seperate fuse. If you arenot sure what it operates by what it says onthe fuse box then once the fuse is out start the car and check all of your other lights including brake lights and blinkers and of course thedash lights that work when your head lights are on. Check all of yourother switch operated devices like the radio and windsheild wipers and heater. Anything that has a switch you can test. Remeber that you may have pulled the fuse that operates the dashlights but there still may be another fuse that operates the dashlights you want disabled, so if the fuse you puilled disabled stuff youneed then replace thefuse and keep pulling more until the dashlights go out again or you run out of fuses to pull. Remeber to turn the headlights back off while you arepulling more fuses. I hope this was helpful, Raz
