Question about 1997 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Dashboard lights and taillights won't turn on

The dashboard and taillights of my truck will not turn on. The headlights work,but not the others. When I pull the knob out halfway to turn the tail lights on,I have to wiggle the knob around for them to come up. When I pull the knob fully out to turn the headlights on,the headlights come on,but the tail lights and dashboard lights turn off.

Could the dashboard switch (for the lights) or wiring. Possible one of the harness connectors got unplugged. Check the trunk are and under the dashboard.

2003bmw sedan headlight,taillight,parking light feed of the same currency;the dashboard headlight stays on!


Not very clear as what your problem is...
Headlights run off their own fuse, as they require more power to function, parking lights run off a lower current fuse, what dashboard light stays on, the high beams?
Please reword problem.

My dashboard lights dont turn on but my headlights turn on


It's usually a fuse. Depending on the car, when the dashboard lights go out, so do the taillights. On my car it's a 10A fuse for the instrument panel.

Problems with dashboard lights


The switch that you are talking about... the dimmer switch, must not be working. If you have warranty left, i suggest you take it in. If not, maybe find a good auto wrecker, and replace the switch yourself. I'm guessing they'll be expensive.
