Question about 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet

1 Answer

1987 VW Cabriolet No headlights, no tail lights, no dome light, no dash lights. I think someone clipped a wire or maybe a fuse. The lights worked perfectly until I left it at my home to get the worthless paperwork done. And I have had my items tampered with in the past, I cannot understand why god allows these worthless sneaks to tamper with MY things when I do not agree with doing these things to people.

2003 Pontiac Vibe no tail lights, brake lights and turn signals work just fine. The dimmer switch does not dim the dash lights but does work the dome just fineand the lights for the Heat/AC are off.


The tail lights work off the headlight switch, and there is a fuse for the tail lights. Make sure the fuse is good, first, a 15 amp (blue) fuse in the instrument panel fuse block. Then, you might have a bad headlight switch.
So you DO have dash lights, they just don't dim from the dimmer switch? In the wiring diagram, there is a green wire from a "tail light relay" (in the "Junction Block-Right Instrument Panel") that carries power to all the exterior lamps, as well as having a splice to the Instrument Panel Cluster (illum. bulbs), and to the lamp dimmer, and to the radio bulb.
To do any further testing, you would need a voltmeter or a test light, so you could chase down this power loss. Good luck.

Head lighst do not come on all other lights work


Check the fuses, I am not sure if the 1990's had a headlight relay or not (My 1987 Cabriolet does not) but if there is a head light relay its by the battery, if there is one, put your ear down by it and have someone turn the headlights on, you should hear a click.

Also, the turn signal switch/cruise control switch, pull it forward towards the steering wheel and see if the lights come on. If the headlights come on when you pull that assembly towards the steering wheel I am thinking you have a bad headlight switch.

What started this mess? tailights, fog lights, brake lights....


The relay has nothing to do with the tail lights, but replacing the switch sounds like a good idea. There's a nut holding it in place, see http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/switches/switch-headlight/1027524/ to get an idea of the construction. And the price. This is not worth fiddling about unreliable workarounds...
In addition, if fuses 15 and/or 16 burn frequently there might be a problem with the tail light cabling.

Good luck

You may have a short somewhere in your wiring. Check to see if you did not blow a fuse. If the fuses are good it may have blown your bulbs. Make sure that your fuses are the proper amperage for the needs of the system.
