If in fact the fuses are ok then chances are it in the headlamp switch.

You can remove the headlamp switch and using a test light check the wires one at a time while moving the dimmer switch up and down. If you don't find a wire that fades from full bright test light to nothing then the headlight switch needs replaced. If you do find that the dimmer wire is working then chances are you either have a bad ground or a broken wire.

I have a 2003 suzuki xl7 what causes the tail lights not to work when ive checked the bulbs and fuses and they are good


it can only be 3 things, blown fuse, (test them not gander)
open circuit or short circuit.
are you saying park running lights are dead, aka, TAIL.
are the park lights working up front, ? and on dash?
1st click of head light switch is park. that is dead,at all lamp inside and outside of car?
02 xl7 (usa car answers, we do, here, as it is a USA forum)

this car has a BCM, body brain.
and it runs most things, we scan it first to see if IT has issues.
called DTCs.
when you select TAIL, at switch this is a digital input to BCM
true (0v = true) signal tells BCM you want tail/ parks on.

it (BCM) then closes relay 23 (seen below) park/tail relay
if the fuse is not blown, then this relay glows the dash
Illumination lights (park dim) are yours glowing now.
yes the all that is good fuse to dash.
now out side car, lots of tail/park lamps, which dont glow, just rear?

Dash lights not working


Have you checked your tail light's as well? Chevrolet's dash light's wont work if you have blown a tail light fuse. Their way of letting you know you have no tail lights. check the tail light fuse and go from there. Good luck..

MY Park lights and dash board wont come on


Check your fuses first, park lights, I think. Pull the light switch to first click and check if your front park lights are on. If no lights are on, the headlight switch is probably bad. If the fronts work, but no tail lights or dash lights, the problem is probably a wiring problem under the dash. The same wire to the rear tail lights is usually with a splice to the dash illumination lights.

My dash board lights dont work when i turn my headlights on and ive turned the brightness up and still not working, any solutions? and also, my aftermarket radio doesnt work anymore do these problems...


gday mate,geoff here, seems like you may be right, if the radio has been fitted to another fuse, ie the dash light fuse which may well also run the tail lights, alternitavely the new radio may take more power than the original, usnig higher power for more volume, features. check fuse amperage and corrct, look to see ( if you can ) to see the original wiring hasnt been tampered with, if so correct and try again, best i can do without being there,hope this helps, geoff.

Hi I have a 2001 Mazda Tribute, recently the rear lights and dash board lights have stopped working. the front lights are still working. I Have checked all the fuses I can find and all ok. Can you help...


Double check fuses - replace tail light fuse even if it looks good. If that doesn't fix it, then you have bad headlamp switch (headlamp switch also feeds tail & dash lights)

DASH LIGHTS AND TAILLIGHTS NOT WORKING


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.

Not working tail lights, not working dash board


Check your fuses its probably just a blown fuse ,the tail lights and dash lights are linked through the same fuse.

Dash lights and tail lights wort work


Check your fuses. Dash lights and tail lights are on the same fuse. Check the fuses electrically, just looking at them is not enough. Replace any blown or damaged fuses with fuses of the same rating, NEVER use a fuse of a higher rating. If the fuse blows again, you have a short circuit to ground. Check all the front and tail lamps and their wiring and don't forget the trailer connector if you have one fitted..
