There seems to be a unwritten rule that the tail lights are on the same wire as the dash board lights ... if you have no dash board lights, neither do you have tail lights. There is a blown fuse somewhere, your job is to find the wire causing the trouble and it is likely at a most inconvenient place near a hinge.

Good luck with your repair.

Headlights and taillights went out @ the same time


Blown the bulbs or just went out and then worked again? If the latter, loose connection on light switch on the dash or relay requires replacing.

Inside dash lights and tail lights won't turn on in my '95 Isuzu Rodeo, what can I do?


My 97 Rodeo had the same problem. No Tail lights, no. Dash lights. There is also an annoying buzzer that goes with the set telling you the lights are on, there is no key in the ignition and your door is open. (you don't notice it when it's gone but you sure notice it when it's back)
The Fuse (taillight Illum) was good, The Light relay under the hood was good and all bulbs were good.
What fixed this problem was replacing the tail light relay which is located in a panel just to the left of the brake pedal also called the kick panel.Inside there are 3 relays. I replaced the one in the middle and got everything to work.
If you need to identify the relay you can put your hand over it and then turn the lights on and off. The correct relay should click. Mine was the middle one.
Hope this helps someone because it stumped me for months.

No taillights, no dash backlighting, no headlights-on chime; all other lights okay


The taillights are commonly connected to the dash light circuit ( so you can be aware when they do not work ).
Start with the fuse box. Read carefully for the correct fuse to change. Sometimes they have a strange name associated with them. Turn the lights off before you change the fuse otherwise they may blow even if the circuit is OK. If it blows again you need to look further to find a shorted wire. ( Most likely in the boot, near the taillights, a wire has been crushed or damaged.

1994 grand Am Dash & Rear Lights


Check all the fuses, if they're ok then check the switch or wiring, it might be that the wire running from the switch to the park / dash lights is fried. Does the front park lights work? (turn switch to first click, not second one. This is park lights, second click is full on headlights) Your park and dash lights are probably all connected to a single wire from the switch via the fuse box.

Dash lights and taillights out fuses all ok


In battery junction box or the under hood fuse panel check fuse no 11(15amp),it will be at the center of the fuse box where there is 4 fuse slots but looks like only 3 fuses, if this fuse in good then you will see a relay that is shaped kinda like a cross.This is the parklamp relay which also powers the dash lights.
