Tracing a wiring problem means just flowing from one connection to another, just like a river.
Since you just put in a head light switch, that is a good place to check for power. If you have it there, then check the hi/low relay. If you have power after the relay, then I would suspect a bad common ground because all the lights should not otherwise be out.

Have a 2006 Ford Five Hundred and replaced the passenger head light and still will not work. Any suggestion on the cause?


Have to do some voltage drops with a volt meter
to find ref voltages & grounds

Most likely will need a wiring diagram to find the problem

2005 GMC Sierra 2500HD, left side low and high beams out, new bulbs, fuses good. No power at the sockets. Could this be the high/low switch on the column?


It shouldn't be the high/low beam switch, as that switches the high/low beam relays. One high beam relay supplies power for both sides, one for low beam, both sides. If you were to lose switch function or a relay, you would lose the high beams or the low beams, but not for just one side. It would be interesting to probe the fuses with a test light and see if you're getting power to and through them. If you are, the problem would be between the fuse box and the headlight, if your not getting power to the left head light fuses, the problem will be in the fuse box. Good luck!

My 2002 ford ranger running lights and instrument panel dont work


12V power passes through 15A fuse 33 (the one that keeps blowing?) in the battery junction box and on to the main light switch. When the main light switch is set to PARK, 12 volts is routed via the BRN lead to the park filaments of the dual park/turn lamps. These lights remain on when the headlight switch is turned to HEAD.

The main light switch gets its 12V input from 7.5A fuse 11 in the central junction box and the same 15A fuse (33) identified above. When the main light switch is set to PARK, 12 volts is routed via the BRN lead to the instrument panel dimming module and module output is applied to the panel illuminating lamps.These lights remain on when the headlight switch is turned to HEAD.

The input to fuse 33 is hot all the time so should read 12V. If you read 12V at the TAN/WHT connection with the fuse out, something is definitely not right. I'm sure you have noted that the fuse is common to the non-functioning circuits you mentioned.

91 silverado running lights will out


Hello from Joe I read your complaint. It should only have 12 v. at the lightbulb socket. you really need to check the grounds. And thats what I feel is wromg. if there is power when the head lamp switch is on in low beam. power goes strait to that socket ground is bolted directly to inner fenderwell on each side. hope this helps you. Joe.

No rear brake lights, but 3rd one works. Fuses good, relays good, pedal area good, bulbs new, and new circuit board. What now


Im not sure the make ,year or model of your car but , the next thing to check as you already checked the fuses and brake light switch would be to check the wires going into the socket, the sockets go bad often so using a test light the next thing is to check the power and ground right before the socket, check the wires at the end before they enter the socket, if you have power and ground then the sockets are bad. you also know that the brake lights and the third light use diffrent power sorces, so just because the third light works doesnt mean the fuse is good for the other brake lights,good day,

2000 dodge durango no headlights all other lights work have checked all fuse and relays replaced head light switch put new bulbs in the flash to pass on the dimmer switch works


first check power to the headlights with a test light,you might just have bad sockets or a break in the wiring,while you have the test light in the haedlight connector wiggle all wires going to it and turn off and on your switch,if you see it the test light light up at all check where you are,also by pass relay with a paper clip and see if you get power,let me know what you find.

Headlights wont come on


if you have a test light check for power TO the fuse.there should be power at the fuse at all times.to do this clamp test light to a good ground under the dash and touch the top of the fuse on ether side, power should be at both sides.if you got power, remove the headlight switch,test for power at ether the red,yellow or brown wire,if you have power here,turn on head lights unplug each head light test for power at each socket,test the ground at each socket to do this,clamp your test light to the POSITIVE side of the battery touch the other end to the ground side of the light socket if the test light does NOT light,fix the ground wires this procedure is the quickest so do this first than try the steps above

Running lights and dash board lights don't work


Hi BlueVan....I don't have the van with me at the moment, but maybe I can help...Try pulling the fuses and replace them if they are bad. If you still have the problem, check your headlight switch. That was a problem I ran accross. I hope this helps...Adios
