Cruise control stopped working. No dash lite, fuse is good. Do not recognize anything else wrong. Worked yesterday.

Have someone you know hook it to a pretty good scanner, it will bring up and test the dash cluster.

My 98 Ford Taurus my tail,brake and dash lights along with my speedometer quit working. What could the problem be?

There are 2 fuse boxes on that car, one under the hood (bonnet), and one under the dash on the drivers side. Check all the fuses with a test light, while the car is running.

Headlights went out.Everything else works dose not look like a bulb or fuse. what can it be?

If it's not a fuse or the bulbs (and if both went out at the same time, that would seldom be bulbs, anyway), I would suspect it to be a fault in the headlight switch, itself. That's where I would look first, anyway.
Good luck!

1995 ford taurs dash lights will not come on why not?

The dash lights have their own 5 amp fuse. The power for this fuse comes through the fuse for the tail lamps. This is done so that if the fuse for the tail lamps blows, the driver will know because the dash lamps go out and when he checks the dash lamp fuse, it will be good, but there will be no power going to it. Most common issue though, is that someone accidentally turned the dimmer switch for the dash lamps completely down. Check that first.

Why do turn signals not work?

Check the flasher unit, then the column switch. A good DIYer with a meter should soon be able to trace power circuit. I take it you've checked the fuse? Try changing it anyway, don't fit a bigger one.

2000 VW golf horn won't work, fuse is good , relay 53 is good but changed it anyway. No voltage reading at horns. Tested horn off car and it is fine

Did you check the power to the relay? and then the signal wire (ground) at the relay to see if it's being signaled? Otherwise you may have a clockspring or module problem not allowing the signal to pass through to the relay.
