You have a bad ground or bulb, check wiring and connectors. look for green wires. This means they are corroded. Make sure to check ground connections.

Have a 97 honda. Just purchased. It has a toggle switch installed that works with original key ignition. That said... toggle controls whole electrical..everything works..except tail lights,and the dash...


So If I understand, you turn on toggle and then use key to engage starter? Do brake lights and turn lights work, just not the running lights? Or are all tail lights dead. If none work, juice is not getting to the headlamp switch. Best fix would be to replace the probably bad ignition switch and repair wiring back to original, but quick fix would be to run a second wire from toggle switched side to the headlamp switch +

Why my lights go off while i am drivin


YOUR MOST LIKELY CAUSE FOR THIS PROBLEM ARE ONE OF TWO THINGS, FIRST LET'S DO SOME DIAGNOSING TURN YOUR HEADLAMPS ON AND TAP ON STEERING WHEEL TO SEE IF LIGHTS GO OFF. IF THEY DO THEN YOU HAVE A PROBLEM IN THE HEADLAMP HIGH BEAM SWITCH, LOCATED ON THE BACK SIDE OF TURN SIGNAL SWITCH. HEADLAMP HIGH BEAM DIMMER SWITCH IS USUALLY LOCATED ON SIDE OF STEERING COLUMN, UNDER DASH, ACCESS IT FROM UNDER DASH PANELS, YOU MAY NEED TO TAKE OUT FOUR STEERING COLUMN MOUNTING NUTS AND LOWER STEERING COLUMN TO GET TO THIS SWITCH, THE ONLY OTHER SWITCH CAUSING THIS IS YOUR HEADLAMP SWITCH, ALSO CALLED A "MULTI-FUNCTION" SWITCH. THIS SWITCH IS VERY HARD TO REPLACE, WITHOUT SPECIAL TOOLS FOR THE JOB I WOULD ADVISE YOU NOT TO TRY OR IF NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE SAFETY HAZARDOUS INVOLVED. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED ON OUTCOME. THX.

1996 Dodge ram 2500. Both dashboard lights and headlights went out at the same time. All other electrics work. All fuses seem to be good. What would cause this and how do I fix it?


Both the dash lights and headlamps, including the tail lights are fed through a fuse link under the bonnet, then the tail, dash lights are run through fuses as are the headlamps. Firstly, check the fuses electrically not visually. Use a test probe (available from your local auto parts shop, not expensive) and clip one end to a good ground on the vehicle chassis and use the pointy end to check both ends of each fuse, the test lamp should light up on BOTH ends. If it lights up on one end only, then that fuse has failed and should be replaced. If it does not light up at either end of the fuse, that circuit is without power so turn on the ignition and lights but DO NOT start the motor. Then check the fuses again. If all looks good, locate the light relays which could be under the hood in their own enclosure or plugged in under the dash and check each one for inputs and outputs. If the relay pins are numbered, you should have power to pins 85 OR 86 but not both and 30. Pins 85 and 86 are the coil connections and a power supply and ground connection to these pins should turn the relay on (you should hear a click) pin 30 is the main load supply and pin 87 is the output supply. This means that pin 87 should be active whenever the relay is turned on. power missing from pin 30, check fuses and fuse links. Power at pin 30 but not at pin 87 when the relay is on, replace the relay. Essentially, the light switch turns on the relay and the relay switches the power to the lights, one relay for dash and tail and two relays for the headlamps (high and low beam). You may find that the vehicle has two headlamp relays for each side headlamps, a high and low beam for the right side lights and the same for the left. If you have no power to one of the switching connections (85 and 86) then again check fuses and check the light switch itself.

Dash and running lights not working and i have checked all fuses.head lights and break lights and turn signals all work.


The dash and insrument illumination lights are both controlled off the same circuit within the headlamp switch. You can try finding a happy spot for the lights by very slowly pulling out the switch after the running light position and turning the knob back and forth, but, this is purely temporary. You need a new switch and it's very easy to change. If you disconnect the battery positive cable. Pull the switch all the way out to the headlamp position. After doing this reach around the back of the switch on each side and you'll find a small button that you can push in. This button allows You to remove the knob/shaft combination. Then just take out the 6-8 screws that hold the cluster face plate(or it may just pry off) and unscrew the collar that secures the headlamp switch to the dashframe.. The harness comes of in one piece and that's it. Good Luck Dana
