SOURCE: 2003 dodge durango #4 fuse keeps blowing,

OK there is a short in your car
take all the light bulbs out of the light that trigger the problem this break the current place one bulb in at a time checking that the fuse has not blown this will pin point where the problem is
once you find the problem you can replace the socket as it may have started to corrode check for water
once you replace the socket you should not have a problem
if you do let me know

SOURCE: Same issue. Side brake lights out but center works.

try replacing the turn signal switch, as the brake/tail lights are all routed thorough it. common problem with most 90's GM cars. this may help, but I've never seen only the third light work. sounds more like wiring has been tapped into incorrectly. good luck

I have a 1969 z28 Camaro with a painless wiring


All wires are marked in small letters, so first make sure everything is hooked up right. Next check grounds and that correct bulbs are in taillamps. Dash lights could be bad light switch.

Dash and tail lights not workjng brake and turn signal on passanger side not working


The dash and tail lights are on two different circuits, and the brake and turn signals are on different circuits, so at least 4 circuits total.
I would start at the headlight switch and check for power on the first two issues.

Have head and brake lights, no tail or dash lights.


A simple 12v test light will track this problem down.(Unless someone has been butchering the wiring,it's probably a bad headlight switch).

1984 Chevy Suburban tail lights not working


Check the tail light bulbs, check to make sure the dash lighting switch is turned up but not turned so far up that the interior lights come on when the door is closed.

I have a 2001 potiac grand prix with no tail lights the same bulb work turn signal an brake lights they r fine ive checked all fuses and replaced all bulbs even replaced the light switch still no tail


no, they are not the same. The multifunction switch is on the steering column and controls wipers, turn signals, and hi/low beam headlights. Dash switch is on the dash and generally turns lights on and off and frequently also controls brightness of dash lights. I had a Camry that had the same thing happening...ended up having a toggle switch put in to control the tail lights...fixed the issue.

I have an 1986 camaro iroc. i have brake lights and turn signals but no tail lights or dash lights, i have power to the tail light replaced both bulbs. i cant seem to find the fuse . does anyone know where...


Bulbs work just like a fuse. When old they just short out like a weak fuse bowing out. Since the lights do not have a fuse you need to replace the headlamp switch for this switch controls the tail lamps. The directionals are controlled by the directional switch, and the brakes are controlled by a brake light switch. Those have fuses for they have switches. Headlight switches do not have a fuse

Hello i have a 1995 ford mustang gt and i need a diagram for the electricle cluster that sits in the dash board that controlls the hd lights, tail lights, break lights etc thank you


im not sure what your talking about, it sounds like you want the wiring for the cluster, but this doesnt control brake,tail or headlights, the brake lights operate through the brake light switch and go through the signal light switch to power those up. the headlights and tail lights work through the head light switch, what system do you need, or what doesnt work.

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

Tail lights and dash lights not working, due to headlight install


I have the same problem in an 88 Accord. I found that if I slowly turn the light switch, there is a sweet spot in between the the parking light and headlight on position (around halfway in between or so.) where all will work. The problem is , when I might a right turn signal, it turns the dash and brake lights out again and I have to refind that sweet spot. Not very safe, so we don't drive that car at night.
I was told by a mechanic that the issue is a relay or switching mechanism located in the steering column.
