Question about 2001 Ford Focus

Open Question

No dash light except radio 2002 Ford Taurus

I pulled some fuses in hopes it was only a fuse. They all looked to be in one piece. Checked turn signals, headlight and breaklights all are in good working order. The turn signal indicator lights stay on all the time. Just know light on the dash board. Makes driving at night a lot harder.

Could this be a dimmer switch or something else??

SOURCE: Rear turn signals and brake lights won't work

Probably the turn signal switch assembly. This is a common problem with the older Fords. The switch is a self contained unit at a cost of about $100.00.

02Ford Taurus windows windshield wipers locks wont work


Sounds like the wire you used for power was oon the circut for all those other things, or if you pulled the fuse box down to hook radio up through the fuse box, you may have grounded out some wires, or knocked them loose. Use a test light or voltmeter and make sure you have power at the fuse box for wiper,dashlight, trunk release, door lock fuses.

2006 ford Taurus dash lights not working and alarm when headlights are left on is also not working


If you have the owner's manual, check the chart showing which fuse is for the dash lights and that alarm. Try replacing that/those fuse(s) to see if you're back in working order. (Not sure where your fuse panel would be, but try the area under the dashboard on the driver's side.)

2002 ford taurus, no power to ignition or accessories


you say power is present at fuse box....the dashboard one or engine compartment? Does sound like a fuse. Knife blade fuses are best checked with a meter or test lamp as they can appear good on inspection

Hazards stuck, dash is dark when headlights on


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.

does the instrument panel lights come on when you turn on the park lights only (no headlights)? If not it could be the switch itself.

No turn signals no power windows or brake lights


Which switches on the steering column? Hope the switches were replaced with the battery disconnected. That alone could be the problem. Who did the switch replacement? If it was a business, you need to return to them and demand they do the work properly.

The turn signals and the emergency flasher are controled by one electronic flasher unit at the far left under the dash on the driver's side. It has a three wire connector and is attached to a mounting bracket with one screw.
