SOURCE: No tail lights, tag light, dash board lights in 97 Nissan Maxima

If you don't have a manual, just get a test light, and ground it to your door hinge. At the back of every fuse, you will see part of the metal filament showing through. Touch your test light to each side of the fuse. You should have power to both sides of every fuse (when your key is on). If no voltage on one side, the fuse is burnt.

SOURCE: 97 Olds Aurora, headlights go on, tail and dash goes off

You have a bad ground. The frame of your Jeep, (As in most vehicles), is the main ground source.
All ground connections go to it, via some sheet metal, or directly. The ground wire from your battery will be connected to your frame.

Your headlights will pull at least 30 Amps. So will your taillights when the brake, and main lights are on.
Since you have a bad ground, (Or Grounds), your ground source cannot support both headlights, and taillights. Your dash lights? They should be on the same circuit as your taillights.

How to solve this problem?

1.Start with the the two ground straps, that are supposed to be connected somewhere on the back of your engine, and lead up to the firewall. If you have had any mechanical repair, and it involved removing the engine, or a cylinder head, (Or two if you have a V6), the mechanic may have failed to connect Both flat ground straps back up. Or one, or more, of the ground straps are loose, and/or corroded at the connection to firewall/engine.

2.Checked okay? Go to the front wiring harness. Out of this harness will be wires going to the headlamps, and turn signals. There will also be one, or two wires that are a ground. They should have a round metal terminal end on them. They will connect to the front sheet metal somewhere.
They may be loose, and/or, have corrosion under the metal terminal to the sheet metal connection.
Remove the terminal end, and check for corrosion. Use sandpaper, or steel wool to clean the contact surface of the sheet metal, and the terminal end. Lightly coat the terminal end with a corrosion inhibitor you can buy from your local auto parts store. It's in a spray can.
No problem so far?

Check each headlamp socket for corrosion. Means removing the headlamps. (Yes I know. Pain!)
If your Jeep uses Krypton bulbs, don't touch the bulb with your fingers. Use rubber gloves, or a Very clean rag. The oil off of your fingers will greatly diminish the life of the bulb!
Okay so far?

Go to the rear of the vehicle. Check the rear lighting harness, and it's ground connections. Check the lamp sockets.

Why won't my dash lights and tail lights come on on my 97 Aurora they would come on when I slam the door now they won't at all


It sounds like a bad connection that's not connecting anymore is the fuse panel by the drivers door? If it is it's most likely in the fuse panel you could check the multi switch witch is the switch that controls your head lights on & and off your directional's your high beam/low beam I dout it's that it's in the fuse box good luck

Tail lights,parking lights and dash lights not working


If signal lights are working, probably a failing headlight switch. Even though fuses seem OK, you can try replacing the appropriate fuse.
