SOURCE: dash lights, dome lights and stereo quit workign when installing

YOU HOOKED THE GROUND FOR THE RADIO TO THE WIRE FOR RADIO LIGHT FROM THE FACTORY UNIT. THAT WIRE IS DRAK BROWN AND WILL SHOW AS A GROUND UNTIL YOU TURN ON THE LIGHTS. YOUR FUSE FOR PARKING LIGHTS WILL ALSO BE BLOWN. I DID THIS AND FIXED IT ALSO.

SOURCE: Dash lights and tail lights don't work

Lights and electrical circuits are sometimes in pairs so that you notice something is wrong (tail lights and dash). On a '90 merc grand marq., that would be fuse #4,the 15 amp blue one, in the panel next to your left foot. If you are lucky,it
just failed from age. If you are not lucky, there is a short in the system containing
the dash, tail,parking,side marker, license lamps and trailer tow relay if equiped.I had to replace the push/pull main light switch which was shorted. If you are lucky, just replacing the fuse in the panel will do it. Referance Grand Marquis Owners Manual for fuses and function.

Dash lights and Radio Not working


All three circuits are on different fuses. Do you have power on the fuses for dash lights and the radio ? The radio should be using two different fuses, one for regular power and one for memory.

Tail lights & dash lights won't turn on


15A FUSE 10 in the battery junction box is common to both circuits but the real problem may be due to some misconnection made during installation of the radio or a poorly made connection shorting to ground.

the tail light issue could be just bad bulbs, check them with a meter ,, also, check the sockets for power to each contact point,, normally if the brake lights and flashers are working, the tail lights should too,, as far as the dash lights have you installed an after market stereo? If so a common problem is a wrong wire got grounded,The harness from the car to the factory radio has a wire for the dash lights that shows up as ground with the light off. When the lights are on the wire is 12V+. Check to see if you connected the ground from the new stereo to this wire. The radio will work perfect but everytime you turn thr park light on the fuse will blow...and the radio will continue to work. There should be a ground wire in the harness as well, ensure you connect the ground from the new stereo to this wire. there is a 15 amp fuse that blows, check them with a meter rather than by sight

Not to bash on you or anything, but alot of people try to save money and not buy the pigtail for the stereo that will plug into the cars harness and the radio. they start cutting wires and start haveing other problems. The stores should push more to purchase these pigtails. now days everything in your car is a computer. even your instrument panel is a computer. cut the wrong wire and let it short and you have problems. you may have to replace the instrument panel to fix your problem. you can have it checked at a shop

New radio installed - now dash lights don't work


Most factory stereos are wired to the dash dimmer switch. Usually if the dash lights go out after an after market stereo installation, it is because the wire that originally went to the factory stereo is not used for after market stereos. Double check the fuses and ensure the wire that controlled the lights on the factory stereo is not grounding out on something.
