No Taillights, No Dash light Problem? 2006 ford focus

When the headlamp switch is placed in the PARKING LAMPS ON position, voltage is supplied to the front parking lamps, the side marker lamps, the rear lamps and license plate lamps.Dash light's also come on with headlamp switch on .
Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical

  • Central junction box (CJB) fuse 30 (10A) (headlamp switch)
  • Bulb(s)
  • Circuitry
  • Generic electronic module (GEM)

Pinpoint Test N: One or More Parking, Rear or License Plate Lamp Is Inoperative
Normal Operation The central junction box (CJB) provides voltage to the headlamp switch through circuit 29-LE29 (OG/BK). When the headlamp switch is placed in the PARKING LAMPS ON position, voltage is routed to the front parking and side marker lamps through circuits 29S-LF3 (OG/YE), 29S-LF7 (OG/BU), 29S-LF8 (OG), 29S-LF16 (OG/GN) and 29S-LF17 (OG/WH). Voltage is also routed to the rear parking and license plate lamps through circuits 29S-LF11 (OG/WH), 29S-LF20 (OG), 29S-LF21 (OG/WH) and 29S-LF22 (OG/BK). Ground for the front side markers is provided by utilizing the turn lamp circuitry and filaments. Ground is provided through circuits 31-LG11 (BK) and 31-LG18 (BK) to the LH and RH front parking lamps, respectively. Ground is provided through circuits 31-LF23 (BK) and 31-LF24 (BK) to the LH and RH rear parking lamps, respectively. Ground is provided through circuits 31-LF21 (BK) and 31-LF22 (BK) to the LH and RH license plate lamps, respectively.

2003 ford focus no taillights, license plate light. If it is a G.E.M.will it throw a trouble code? And if I have to replace it does any one know where the cheapest place to get one?

The G.E.M module isn't involved in turning on the license plate light's or the tail lights either ! Have you check the fuse's ? Do you know where the central junction box is ? F2.62 7.5 amp , F2.58 7.5 amp an F2.57 7.5 amp .
Parking, reversing and side lamps
  • The voltage for these lamps is supplied through the lamp switch.
  • The left and right-hand circuits are fused separately in the CJB.
  • The lamps will work when the lamp switch is set to "side lamps" or "headlamps".
  • Central Junction Box (CJB) (14A068) C270A

Parking lights plate lights taillights and shift indicator light went out on my 95 mercury grand marquis LS. Not a spot for fuse, and changed lcm please help

But there would be a fuse for those lights, somewhere. The park/taillights and the license plate light would for sure be on the same fuse. Not sure about the shift indicator light, that might be on a separate fuse like for dash lights and/or instrument panel lights. But yes, you need to look at all your fuse panel sites again, there might be more than one under the dash, too, maybe behind the glove box or under the dash on the passenger side.

Check to see if your brake lights and rear turn signal lights work. Do they still work right? If they don't work either, there may be a ground problem with the rear lights. If still no help with the lights, one would need a voltmeter and a wiring diagram of the lights to track down the problem. Things like looking for power along the electrical path from the switch to the fuse panel to the lcm to the bulbs. First find the fuse. good luck.

Why do my taillights not work when I turn my light switch on all the way

the car has tail lights
the correct name is PARK because there are many park lights not just 2 i there rear.(like days of old) Tail word is obsolete today.
no problem but is key fact to diagnosis, (20 odd lights and complex)

check all park lights, even the front.
are all dead, and side mark lights (if opted)
and license plate light
and all dash parking lamps called , Dimable Illumination.

check fuses yet, (test them)

you need to check the brown wire at the rear of the truck on the drivers side.this wire is the taillight wire that also powers the license light.check with a test light for the area of lose of power and repair the wiring.there is a splice that feeds to the taillights and license could be a corroded wire or broken wire.
