This is probably a blown fuse. Consult your owners manual for fuse locations. On todays cars, there is often an under the hood fuse location for engine controls and another location inside the passenger compartment for things like dashboards and tail lights. The light that comes on when you put it in drive is probably the brake light. It goes on when you step on the brake and shift into drive.

All light work except tail light and dash lights. turn works, brake works, head ok. All are on the turn signal switch could that be the problem


First check fuse that is for tail lights, Check Owners Manuel under fuses, sometimes fuses control more than one circuit . Is there a dimmer switch for the dash light? Again check owners Manuel. Check the tail light bulbs themselves, make sure there is no corrosion at the bottom of the bulb and contact.

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.

No tail lights or dash lights


If you have checked the fuses for those two circuits and they have power, the next step would be testing the headlight switch.

When i push the brakes the dash lights up and when i put the right or left blinkers the dash lights ups. what do i do?


Hi, is it possible you have the wrong lamps in the brake light sockets? It seems like the brake/turn lamps are shorting across to the tail lamps, which will the power the dash lights. The stop/turn lamps are supposed to be dual filament bulbs. If you put a single filament bulb in the socket, it may short across the stop and tail circuits.

you have a dead short in the wiring harness. Easiest way to diagnose is remove tail/parking bulbs and systematically replace them one at a time. When you replace them, not buy new ones just unplug them, your problem circuit will be when the lamps go dim. That's your short.

Let me know how it goes!
