I have a 2002 Saturn SC2 that had a similar problem. The solution was replacing a burnt out fuse.

2000 saturn sl1 dash and tail lights out i have no onwers manual so i don't know what fuse it is can someone tell me what fuse to change


There's another fuse location (on my 99 SL1 anyway) under the right front panel of the center console in the passenger compartment. Check fuses with a test light (cheap and easy to use).

Tail lights, parking lights and dashboard lights on 2004 grand marquis are inoperative. Headlights, turn-signal lights, brake lights, hazard lights, back-up lights all work


Tail lights, parking lights and dash lights are all on the same circuit...I'd go to the fuse panel under the dash and check the fuse for those lights....usually referred to as accessory lighting in the owners manual and is usually a 10A fuse.

Hope this helps...

I am having the exact same problem on my 2001 Saturn SL1. I went to Murray's Auto Parts Store in MI and it was 140.00!! for the switch. I'm interested in finding out what you did and if there is any cheap way to fix this.

1996 saturn sl1 3rd brake light goes on when headlights or parking lights are turned on what could cause this also when u step on brake pedal with car off chime rings


Have you recently replaced any bulbs? Did you use dual element bulbs. It sounds like the wrong bulbs were used and the brakes lights are backfeeding the tail light circuit.

On my 1996 Mustang GT, when I turn on my headlights, my dashboard lights go out. Is that a fuse, ground or some other issue?


The proposed problem sounds like the problem I had with a 95 Mustang. Check the tail lights as well as the dash lights. If both are out when the headlights are switched on, the problem more than likely is with the headlight switch. The 95 had a poorly designed wire and plug configuration going into the switch. The wiring was too small and the plug would literally melt. The headlight switch and plug has to be replaced in this case. The problem was supposed to have been cleared with the 96 Mustang; however, a persistent problem may suggest checking the plug/switch combination.
