I would be more suspecting the headlight dimmer switch then a fuse.

1994 dodge dakota my headlights and tail lights and brake lights don't work my abs and parking brake lights are on my dash lights don't work either I replaced the headlight switch and still no


These are all different circuits. The brake lights are on a 10amp fuse - the headlights are on a 50amp fuse - and the parking and dash lights are on a 20amp fuse.
Do you have power going into the headlight switch and the brake light switch ?

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.

My tail lights wont shut off


usually when the headlights goes off so does the tail lights thats mean the brake light switch but the side markers are staying on too. it can't be the fuse since they still light. the only thing that breaks the currant is the switch. it sounds like there,s a problem with the headlight switch. the headlight switch operates the side markers and the tail lights along with the head lights. Hope this can helper .

No tailights on a 2000 dodge stratus all other lights work in back replaced all bulbs still have no tail lights


there is a fuse in the fuse panel for the tail lights.check this out first as the tail lights are on a separate circuit from the other lights in the back.fuse panel is under the dash on the drivers side.there is also one under the hood.if the fuse is good its possible that there is a problem with the headlight switch on the tail light circuit side of the switch.if this is okay then its possible that there is a wiring problem from the switch to the tail lights but this rarely happens.

No tail lights early morning or evening


The circuit board witch holds the tail light bulbs could be at fault,check the voltage to the tail lights when this happens,if there is none,replace the headlight switch.If there is voltage to the tail lights,replace the tail light assembelys

Dash and tail lights stopped working on my daughters 1991 toyota celica gt. the fuse has been checked and replaced. it was ok. the headlights were recently changed. is it true the dash and tail lights run...


If the tail lights and the dash lights stopped working and the tail light and the panel lighting fuses are both o.k. and you can find no other blown fuses then the problem is most likely the headlight switch.

What started this mess? tailights, fog lights, brake lights....


The relay has nothing to do with the tail lights, but replacing the switch sounds like a good idea. There's a nut holding it in place, see http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/switches/switch-headlight/1027524/ to get an idea of the construction. And the price. This is not worth fiddling about unreliable workarounds...
In addition, if fuses 15 and/or 16 burn frequently there might be a problem with the tail light cabling.

Good luck
