Fuse problem - parking lights, air ride

Fuse #3 doesn't even show as related to the parking lights, but the guy at the parts store installed a new fuse there to run diagnostics which led to parking lights that would not turn off.

Loaned it out that day and it ended up being left until the battery died. Removed the fuse and jumped the battery, however that ended up leading to other problems. At least I think it did because the timing was immediate.

My rear air ride went haywire right after that. Had to bring it home from the shop because I think they'll test and blame the compressor when I still think it's not just a coincidence that the air ride problem came up immediately when someone was messing with the fuses and they were near the battery recharging it. Seems logical that it's an electrical mess.... I just hope I don't have to go through a huge ordeal to figure it out. Any advice on where to start considering the connections between the problems?

I would say the light switch has a direct short, thats why the fuse blew in first place. they prob put biggeg fuse in to keep it from blowing. all good untill that shorted energy starts finding new places to ground or short out. always go back to original issue to find prob. good luck.

Where is fuse located for tail lights on 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee

the operators guide tells you were all fuses are
did you lose that?
no engine size stated, only 2002, and no country stated..
these cars run different engines in all countries, so...???
and have wiring to match them. gas and diesel.
so tail. not brakes, no reverse but park lamps are out in the REAR Left and right and park is NOT dead
on the sides, nor on the front, park is the 1st click of the head lamps switch and park lamps even feed many interiour lamps.
even the speedo cluster back lamps are park.(with dim)
Ive answered vast park fails here, even showed you the free manual. and now repeat that once again..

answsing for USA car
and is a WJ jeep, the book is WJ.
answering for, only REAL parks dead, x4. (2 license plate lamp glow to, do they fail too?)
fuse 6 runs the park relay,
when you turn the switch the switch (digital it is) tells the BCM bain, (body puter) to turn on the park relay, the relay closes
and passes, fuse 6 power to the rear of the car
so we check fuse 6 first. then scan car make sure the car
fuse 6 is located in the JB, (means cab box)

it also runs the front lamps and all side makers.
so just how many parks are dead, seems your post is not clear at all, there are like 20 total lamps + on this feed.
now my wild and useless blind answer.
fuse blown F6 and all parks dead front rear side.
then relay park is bad.
then scan PCM, it tells you related errors now.
post them.

Why won't the dash lights come on

A number of reasons that dash lights will not come on. Let us start with the first. Do the parking lights come on on the outside of the vehicle when turning the switch on? If so, then I would suspect that you most likely have a bad dimmer switch. That is the switch that dims the dash lights. They commonly go out.

If the parking lights are not on then I would suspect a parking light fuse. If parking light fuse is good then I would suspect a headlight switch.

Most likely, based on experience with Neons, it is usually the dimmer switch. You can buy a dimmer switch on the internet or at your local auto parts store for a relatively decent price.

Hope this helps.

Air suspension does not work

The best way to fix Air ride issues is to get a conversion kit. We paid $200 online for ours and my husband installed the new parts. We were told fixing the air ride could cost upwards of $3000. Experience from several people told us that parts on the air ride go out quickly once it starts having problems. Ours rides just as well as before and we will never have another air ride problem again. Our Navigator is AWD 4x4.

if the car does not shift out of park, check all your fuses first, try checking the brake fuse first, when you step on the brake pedal it releases the shifter, if it doesnt shift into the gears you most likely blew a fuse

Does this car have any electrical power? Check the 'Main' fuse in the box under the hood. It could also be listed at 'BATT' or 'ALT' fuse. If the car has no electrical power and you know the battery is good, make sure the cables aren't hooked up backwards. Try these things and let us know if it works.

When you say you checked the fuse, was this just a visual check....or did you try replacing the fuse the a new one? Sometimes a visual check doesn't show minute breaks in the fuse wire, which gives a false appearance that the fuse is fine.

When the fuse is ok, this problem normally relates to the brake switch (mounted to the brake pedal). When this switch is replaced, you should always use a multimeter and check the switch is operating correctly when touching the brake pedal.

If the switch is ok, then suspect a faulty relay (if applicable to the Dakota).

I can not find the neutral safety switch on a 2000 buick park ave

Any chance your vehicles have a security/alarm system. Disconnecting battery on some, will arm it sometimes & not allow it to run. Using key to unlock door, on driver & passenger side have been known to work on some vehicles, but if not, a call to dealer should help.
