My 1998 dodge Dakotas headlights went out so I changed the switch and now the headlights work but the taillights don't work. Every other light works except the running lights. Also the light that show


The black wire with yellow tracer is voltage for tail lamps. With the headlamp switch on, any voltage on that wire? Use a test light to check. Also check fuse 14--15amp.

Taillight works when headlights are on, but does not shine brighter when braking or signaling


Change the bulb. When you press the pedal the brake switch changes the circuit to the 21w brighter circuit for the brake light.

It is a ground problem. When you turn on your headlights, they are sharing the same ground that your brake and T/S lights are using. Check all ground connections to the body from all headlight and taillight wiring are connected and tight. If it doesn't affect your taillights, it may be in your T/S switch. Check your ground connections first.

I have a 1999 saturn sl1 and my tailights and dashlights quit working. i changed the fuse and it blew. so i changed the fuse again and it lasted about three minutes before it blew again. where do i start...


Okay, these are hard to find. I assume you have no problem when you do not have the Tailights on? This would mean problem could run all the way to rear taillights.

But if the problem is not related to putting power through the wires to the taillights it is under the dash area. You would have a short from the power supply to the lightswitch. You have a Relay for the lights in the Powerbox.

Go to Autozone.com Website and register your vehicle for a free wiring diagram and Powerbox layout.

You can then see for yourself about how the dashlights are grouped with the taillights. You could have a bad Relay.

Look at how the taillights get their power and this will show you a color/coded path from the front to rear of your car. As I said earlier, it is important to know if the lights only short when they are turned on by the headlight switch.

If they short out all the time, regardless of the headlight switch being on or off, then the short is more towards the front, between the dash and Relay or the Relay itself.

Use the built-in cutoff points as a way of eliminating the shorted part. The headlight switch is a cutoff point. Power rearward is halted with the except of the Brakelights. If the Brakelights work fine, the bulb sockets are probably grounded properly.

If the fuse pops with the headlamps off, the power is not going rearward and you are okay.

I'd be willing to bet your dash lights don't work either when you turn the headlight on.change the headlight switch, it has a short, it's only about 11 dollars at advance auto, and is fairly easy to replace. my 93 chevy did same thing, changed headlight switch, problem solved

check fuses. If fuses are good use a voltmeter at the connections to see if you are getting power. If you are not then you will have to run down a short in the wire.

1991 honda accord ex headlight problems


Hello, firstly I was wondering if the lights shut off when you pull the switch off the harness?
If YES, then THAT switch or wiring could be bad
if NO, then it's most likely the body control module

1998 XJ8 Vanden Plas taillight problem


Check the electrical grounds for the taillights. In fact, get a diagram and check all the easily accessible grounds. Many of these are in the engine bay.
