Hazards stuck, dash is dark when headlights on

I have a 2000 ford taurus. When i turn on the headlights, the hazards light up on the dash and stay lit, but the rest of the dash is dark. When i use my turn signal, the lights on the radio flash. Can you help me?

I had a similar problem with my 2002 Taurus. I removed the dash and pulled out the display behind the steering wheel. I reseated all the light bulbs behind the display. Everything has worked fine since. You will find more info on how to do this if you search the internet.

    I have the exact same problem with my 2002. It works fine when the temperature outside is warm, or after the car warms up, which makes no sense to me. I'm not going to rip my dash out if I don't even understand what could be causing such a strange problem. How can temperature be affecting my electrical system and how can it be fixed?

Hazard lights won't turn off, all other lights work fine.


The lights are blinking or stay lit on the dash. Blinking is a bad switch, just coming on is a bad ground at the front.

Turn signals not working, Toyota Tundra 2000


Hazards work only when lights are off. Left signal light stays lit on the dash and does not blink and is stuck on (lit up) when lights are lit. If I place hazards on while lights are on only right side flashes and whole dash lights flash too... I replaced the flasher relay and it still does not work. Suggestions anyone? Thanks!

Your car probably uses a CAN-bus system where almost every function is subject to computer decisions.

A low battery can cause strange things to happen.

1998 Taurus turn, hazard lights and power mirrors don't work


no the power mirrors are not.
you have a flasher for the signals and the hazards,in fact you have two they can be in several places under the dash on the fuse box or they can be on the right side behind the glove box or on top of the steering column to the right side under the dash

Hazard and blinkers went out at same time fuse is good


There'll be a unit under your dash near the steering column called the electronic flasher module that controls your blinkers and hazards. Sounds like the module broke

Headlights and turn signals stopped working


First off, do you have a knob on the dash for the headlights, or do you have a lever on the column that turns them on? If you have the lever on the column, and you can turn on the highbeams by pulling back on the turn signal stalk, and hitting the hazard button turns the flashers on, then chances are the stalk is bad (it's called the combination switch and it's a common failure on the B5 chassis cars (the Passat and Audi A4)).

Try that out - hit the hazard button and see if the hazards work. Pull back on the stalk and see if the high beams come on (they should - toggling like that uses a circuit that is separate from the usual headlight circuits).

Post back up with the results of these checks:

Headlight switch on column or dash?
Highbeams turn on when turn signal stalk is pulled back?
Hazard button activates hazard lights?

Let me know what you find out and I'll be able to tell you more definitely.
