Foxguard jp2 immblsr on triumph stag will not de activate or go into service mode.Ignition switch operates as normal but dash lights stay off wipers and washers dont work .


Your half way there. All you need is a wiring diagram to trace the wire from the ignition to that fuse. Most likely it is one wire from the ignition, then it splices to the different fuses. In my experience the splice fails(corrosion), Some times you loose one area, some times all. Depends on which side of the splice is corroded the most. Splices are hard to find. Even harness diagrams can be as much as 2 feet off. I usually find the color code of the wire and run a new wire. In your case, it would be from the ignition switch to the fuse panel.

Headlights won't come on. Getting 12v at both the left and right fuse box slots under the dash. Continuity good on both fuses


check switch connections under the dash
disconnect that connection and check for continuity of circuits through the head light switch operations
if the tail /park lights come on but not the head lights , check the head light circuit for relays
it is a ford product , check the operation of the light control module,

Interior of car is dark at night.


There should be a button inside the door arch, on the hinged side, that activates the interior lights when the door is opened, this button also turns the light off when the door is closed.
Find this button and push / activate it manually with your hand.
If the light is not turning on and off, check that the switch on the interior dome light is in the "DOOR" position, not the OFF or ON position. this is usually the middle position.
Check all the Auto door light buttons on all doors, you may find one that is loose (not springing back into position) this will need replacing as it could be the cause of the interiour light on working automaticly.
I hope some of this helps

How do i dim all my interior lights with the headlights off in my 2011 dodge charger


There should be an adjustment knob just to the left of the steering column that will adjust the brightness of the dash lights. The problem you will have is the Dash lights only activate when the parking lights or headlights are on with the switch unless you have automatic running lights which will activate the dash lights when the running lights activate.

The headlights do not activate automatically, in the auto mode, at night or with minimal daylight. However the running lights will activate in the auto mode. A new dash light switch was installed without...


The light sensor to control the automatic headlamps is located on the dashboard. This sensor is suppose to activate running and headlamps. I would suspect the problem is a relay to operate the headlamps if the car uses a seperate relay in the automatic mode. I'm assuming the headlamps work in manual on/off. FYI... The auto mode does not control the fog lamps.

Lights flashing, then not working at all


From what you are describing it sounds as if the headlight switch has gone bad.  That switch controls not only the headlights but the tail lights and all dash lights.  Everything that IS working is connected to other switches not related to the headlight switch.  You can either buy a new one or get a used one from a junk yard or ebay.  Pay particular attention when getting a replacement as there are 3 different models which vary depending on options such as Auto mode and Foglights.   Replacement is easy.  Using a flat screwdriver carefully pry off the trim cover around the switch. The switch is held in with some screws.  Be careful disconnecting the wires so as not to break the locking tabs. The trim just pushes firmly back into place.
