Not the turn signal switch if the dash is out also. Check the fuse for the dash/illumination first. If good, then you have a power or ground problem to the switch. If bad and they come on, replace the turn signal switch.

Parking lights, tail lights, and dash lights dont work


i assume you have checked all lighting fuses. if you have not, start there. do you have brake lights? if you do have brake and head lights then i would suspect the dimmer/light switch.

Tail Lights will not always illuminate; seems to have a short in dimmer switch


This is not necessarily your dimmer switch. Most manufacturers tie the dash lights to the tail lights so that it warns you in a visible way if your tail-lights are not working. It sounds more like you have a power supply problem unless working the dimmer switch actually causes or resolves the problem. Chances are you either have a shorting power wire, or a mostly broken wire that is only making an intermittent connection. If it was constant I'd suggest checking fuses but with an intermittent issue, The only way to really check this is to start tracing wires and testing power along them when it's not working. Wiring diagrams help a lot.

1994 silverado illumination on instrument panel doesn't work, parking lights and tail lights do not work but headlights and brakelights work fine. All fuses are good. Is this a bad dimmer switch?


No. Dash lights being out could be a bad headlight switch, since the dash lights are routed through the headlight switch, not the dimmer switch. Park and tail lights also controlled by the headlight switch.

Dash lights went out


First check to make sure you do not have the dash light dimmer control turned all the way down.

If that is not the problem, check to see if you have any tail lights. If the tail lights are also not working, check the tail light fuse. If you find that the fuse is blown, you need to find out WHY. Something has overloaded the circuit and caused it to blow. Replacing the fuse without correcting the circuit fault that caused it to blow will only result in another fuse blowing.

If you do not have the dimmer control turned down and the tail lights are working, then you probably have a bad headlamp switch (the dimmer control is built-in to the headlamp switch and can only be fixed by replacing the whole unit.)

Tail lights dont work the brake ligts work


How are your dash lights? Usually dash lights and tail lights are on one circuit. The dimmer switch is also connected to both circuits. If there is a short in the dimmer switch, then either tail lights or dimmer switch could have problems.

Dashlights don't come on. I hit something in the road (ruined a tire) and the tail lights and dash lights went off. I found a burned out fuse that covered the taillights and they now burn but I can't find...


Fuse #34 is detailed as "TAIL", but it also operates the dash lights too. If your dash are not working and the fuse is good the most likely cause would be your dash dimmer switch. If you press on it and the lights come on. Simply replace it.

1990 Jeep Wrangler Problem:


1990 Jeep Wrangler. Driving with lights on for 10 - 15 minutes. First the dash lights go out followed by the headlight and tail lights. If you pull the dimmer switch back (like you would to flash your brights at someone) the head lights will come on and as long as you continue to pull back on the dimmer switch the head lights will stay on bright.
