Sounds like the running lights and dash lights are on the same circuit.
check the fuse marked-----instr clstr, (instrument cluster), or simular.
If that fuse is ok, check the other fuses for lights.

My brake and battery lights are both on my 2008 nissan maxima will go faster than 40 mph, what is wrong?


Battery light on may mean alternator is not charging, thus engine is running off only battery power = weak spark and bad curent to ECM. Fix battery issues and should run better. Brake light separate issue I think.

I have a 91 Toyota Mr. The parking lights, tail lights and daylights wont come on. They run off the same fuse underpass. The bulbs and fuse are good. What could be wrong?


Replace the day time running light module. Early years are a separate module. Usually they are on the driver side under the dash. These can be bypassed..Find an electricial that works on cars.

I HAVE A 1988 TOYOTA PICKUP AND ONE NIGHT MY DASH LIGHTS WENT OUT EVERYTHING ELSES WORKS BUT MY DASH LIGHTS CHECKED ALL THE FUSES NONE BLOWED PLEASE HELP


The dash lights are controlled by the dimmer switch on the head lamp switch. Check under the dash to ensure nothing got accidentally unplugged. Also the plug in the back os the dash can come loose or a contact can burn up where it plugs in on high mileage cars and trucks. Some times you can clean the plug with a small brass brush and sometimes you have to replace the plug and or cluster depending how bad it is. Also most cars have more than one fuse box make sure to check them all.

I have a 1988 toyota pickup and my running lights in the rear dont work. i have checked the fuses and they are good. wat could be the problem


Bad grounds, corroded sockets or connectors. check that you have 12 volts to the sockets and the ground path is good.

Brake lights wont work.


try taking a wire brush to all the ground wire ports on your vehicule specialy the ones in the rear of the vehicule sometimes rusty ground wires make very bad connections. if so when you are done put some grease on them to avoid future rust. hope this coul help you.

1988 toyota pick up has no tail lights or dash lights


The tail light relay is under the plastic panel near the fuse box on the DRIVERS side. Yes I have had this problem. So in desperation I connected a wire from the battery to the lights, my wife continually ripped the wire out so I ran a hot wire to a switch and on to the running lights, turn the switch on and I have tail lights, then I noticed that with the switch off I could turn them on at the light switch. Possibly fumbling around reconnected something. I have tested every relay, fuse, wire for voltage and continuity and had zero results. Then the switch, who knew?
