My 1997 ford f150's dash lights and tail lights don't work. All other lights work, and there aren't any blown fuses. Could this be a fuseable link problem?

There is a relay for those as well in the fuse box test the fuses for those tail lights and if they dont have power then its the relay.

No relay for those lamps.

Back of the headlamp switch has a brown wire, this is for the parking lamps, and feeds the dimmer panel switch.
IF the fuse for this is good, try jumpering + DC to the brown wire on the back of the switch, to see if the lights work ( this assumes the front parking lamps are also not working ).

The switch is held in with 3 spring clips. One top center, one on the left, and one on the bottom. Best to use a plastic trim tool, so you do not scratch your dash, but the screw driver method works ( and leaves marks 80% of the time ).

My dash and tail lights don't work why?


Check for a blown fuse in the vehicle's fusebox. It should have a listing of each fuse size and what it powers on the backside of the cover or in the vehicle manual. if fuse is blown just replace it with same type.

Were are the dashbord feses on a nissan 1997 pickup


IN the dash board on the drivers side under a little door the opens to put change in just to the left of the drivers steering collum this door can be removed and the fuse names are on the bnack of this little door. If the dash lights aren;t working your tail fuse might be blown as the rear running lights and the dash lights share the same circuit on purpose. If your tailights are'nt working your dash does light up to let you know.

There is a short somewhere in that power supply circuit. It is not going to be any fun to find and all you can do is inspect every inch of each wire.

Dash light could be your dimmer switch. as for your tail light check power at chasis junktion plug with test lght 4 buck at wal-art. ford used fuseable links as a safety feature in case of shorts but you cant see when they blow so test light is your friend.

Wiring


this sounds like you have either a blown fuse on the fuse block. or possiblly a blown fuseable link somewhere in the line. also very possible that there is a short in the wiring somewhere goin back to the lights.
