First check that you don't have a tail light out, they did this so that if a rear tail light was out the dash board lights would not come on. Next if both rear running lights are ok then the most common problem for this rig was the light switch, it is not to difficult ot replace. Also there was a problem with the connetors on this truck they would heat up and come loose. so pull out the light switch knob and reach under the dash and push the spring loaded button on top of the light switch to pulll out the knob, next unscrew the beuty ring with a screwdriver and pull down the swtich and the harness, I belive the number 7 pin was the one that would burn out.

It is the "GRAY" wire at the cluster plug. There is a 5 amp fuse in the fuse box that feeds the lights. The fuse is marked as "INST" in the fuse box.
Good luck.

Why can I not get power to the small wire going to the starter on my 2004 taurus


You need to know how it works before you can diagnose it. There is a starter relay in the under hood fuse/relay box .. This relay is controlled by the PCM - engine computer . Does you car have a anti-theft system ? a red light on top of the dash or a SECURITY light on instrument cluster ? Is the red light flashing fast when trying to start the car . If you find an pull the relay out an look on the bottom you will or should see four numbers . 30 & 87 , 85 & 86. You can test from the socket where the relay plugs in . PIN'S 87 & 85 should have B+ voltage . PIN 30 takes voltage from PIN 87 to start the vehicle , PIN 86 is the control from the engine computer . The PCM gives a ground on this circuit to energize the relay closing the contacts inside ,completing the circuit between B+ voltage on PIN 87 to PIN 30 to start the car.

91 chevy C2500 where is the cluster ground located?


IN cluster wiring the earth wire is incorporated in the plugs and is normally plain black. It stays in the harness until it reaches a point where it can be earthed out as most dashes are plastic and will not pass current. A wiring diagram will how where it earths out.
