All of these have a fuse but yes the headlight switch is their common source.You may want to check the main circuit fuses first ( Heavy duty ones) Under the hood in a black box. If the fuses are good, your most likely culprit is the headlight switch

My tail lights don't work but head lights a turn signals work and dash lights don't work


The dash lights are on the same circuit as the tail lights/park lights. If the front park lights are not on as well, look for a blown fuse . If fuse is ok. possible headlight switch/relay/wiring problem

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?

No tail lights


no (park -tail-running lights) is dash parking lamps glowing?
check the tail fuse yet?
94 accord
this circuit is huge, park/tail, up to 20 lamps. are all dead>?
front park, side park, tail park and dash lamps all out.
this i the red-blk feed. all comments , USA, as lighting varies by country. (laws)
license plate light dead too????????? that too is park
there is NO RELAY.
the fuse 32 feeds the HL (head light) switch and in PARK posistion
it feeds 12vdc raw power to all 38 lamps. (side corning lamps,etc)
the license plate lamp is key, there are 2 lamps.
and both probably are not out.
so if they are good lamps and both tail lamps are good and fuse
then they must glow, if one lamp shorts as 1156 or the like love to do
then it blows the fuse. as does the trailer jack (option) .

so fuse 32 park/tail blown
or HL park switch bad, if all 20 odd lamps dead. and fuse holds.
that simple, and this cars wiring is very simple and nice.

Tail lights and dash lights is no working


did you check them in the dark to see if , not just dim?
what sub model, EX, or LX? the LX is very different.
the car has 2 fuse boxes. did you know that, most cars do.
the fuse is called fuse #10 (fuse 10 runs hazards too, are haz dead?)
box one in cab, and 2 in engine bay.
the HAZ fuse is marked, HAZ

park/dash dim all dead, this is the largest path in car, over 20 lamps on most cars. (lots of places to mess up)
all are dead, all parks, front , rear, side and cab (dim) dead??????
even the license plate lamp>>>> details?,,,,, help, im blind..
here ill login to alldata.com for you, so can you at anytime.

ok this car can have a tail light relay. the LX dont have one.
the combo switch (1st click ) turns on park(tails)
and the relay energizes and runs all the park lamps.
but not on the LX, the LX is switch direct drive to all parks.
so?????

found this with google. NON LX !!!

Fuse #10 (15A) Audio unit, pocket light, clock, climate control, cruise switch light, gauge assembly, hazard switch light, heater control panel, interior lights switch light, driver's multiplex control unit, power sliding doors switch light, rear A/C switch light, taillight relay TCS swtich light.

1995 huyndai excel, lost power to left side park light, tail light and dash light any reason why?


Recheck your work. Pull the connector off at the flasher and inspect it before plugging it back in. Not much room to work under there in an Excel? Maybe you pulled a wire loose somewhere? Kinda weird, cause the park, tail, and dash lights are all operated by the headlight switch, no relation to the turn signals and flasher relay. Or do you mean the left indicator light on the dash? That would make me think the flasher connection again, or the left side wires up under there. H H, josh...happy ha ha, merry christmas.

2001 Monte Carlo SS 3.8 v6 Rear park lights are out as well as the dash lights, brake lights work headlights work front running and park lights work, all turn signal lights work. replaced headlight switch...


Park, Tail, Marker Lamps, and License
The park, tail and marker lamps, including the license lamps, turn on when the headlamp switch is placed in either the PARK or the HEAD position, or anytime the headlamps are requested. The RT I/P #1 fuse in the RH I/P fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to both the park lamp relay switch contacts and to the park lamp relay coil circuit. The park lamp relay coil is controlled by the body control module (BCM). When the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK position, the BCM energizes the park lamp relay coil control circuit.
Current flows from the park lamp relay switch to both front and rear park lamp fuses and to their respective park/tail lamps. The front park lamps are grounded at G101. The rear park lamps are grounded at G302. The license plate lamps are a part of the rear park lamp circuit and are grounded at G302. The inadvertent power control feature prevents the park lamps from remaining on more than 10 minutes if left on. If the park lamps are turned on after the ignition switch has been turned OFF, or is in the ACCY position, they will remain on until turned off or until the battery runs dead.

Did you the REAR PARK LP fuse 15 amp in the right insturment panel fuse box.

I need diagrams for the fuse boxes in the dash and engine compartment so I can find the fuse/relay I need to replace. My dash lights, tail lights and windsheild wipers are out.


Hi
There are a couple of wiring diagram and manual available on the net. The relay you are talking about is the park lamp relay which supplies power to the tail lamps, license plate lights and both front and rear park lamps. If the park and plate lights are working the light switch, relay and supply power are good. You need to verify for a broken brown wire to the tail lamps (assuming the sockets, lamps and grounds on both tail lights are good) .If none of the lamps are working then the 15A fuse number 3, the light switch or the park lamp relay could be bad (note different contact in the main light switch work the other lights)

You can find a wiring diagram and component location at
www.autozone.com and http://www.pdfgeni.com/book/1998-ford-ranger-wiring-diagram-pdf.html


Let us know if you want something more else accept the solution.

My 1997 ford f150's dash lights and tail lights don't work. All other lights work, and there aren't any blown fuses. Could this be a fuseable link problem?


there is a relay for those as well in the fuse box test the fuses for those tail lights and if they dont have power then its the relay.

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
