The way I fixed it was, by pass the back up switch and wire in a lite hooked to a switch that I flip by hand.

I was trying to change the inside trunk bulb , not the third brake lite! Put in a new buld it would not lite.


Did you find the fuse that the owners manual tells you is 4 the trunk lite?? If its not the fuse and the light it has 2 B the wiring somewhere. Check the bulb socket with a volt meter to make sure you have voltage at the socket itself with the trunk hood up obviously. It could also be the actuator switch. Good luck!!

Light bulbs wont work in dash


Hello,

If all your lite bulbs are out, or don't work as you say in your dash, there is normally only two places this can be. Number one, make sure that your dimmer for your dash did not get accidentally turned off. Meaning a lot of cars and trucks as you know, you can turn down or turn up the brightness of your dash lights by a couple methods. Some have like a dial on there dash area, to turn, or some are on the actual light switch that turns. If this is all on and working good, then the only other place it normally would be is a fuse. And that should me marked as dash lights and in your fuse panel. Check in your operation manual for location of fuse box. Or if you know where this is, then open up and look for a fuse that would say, dash lights or interior lights. I hope this helps. MIke

My left turn signals don't work.you can hear the clicker working normal and the courning lite come on. If you leave the signal switch on the turn lite will flash once in a while and also the lite on...


You most likely have a bad bulb, if the front bulb goes the rear wont work and vise versa both bulbs must be good to complete the cirrcut. Even though you have no lights you should still hear the flasher relay. Bulbs are cheap just replace both and you'll be good to go. Good luck

For some reason my headlite are not working but the fuse is good and the tail lites and all the other lites are working when i do turn on the lites the lite for the clock in the radio dims a bit


Hi, with thse symptoms, the most likely cause is a failed connection or dimmer switch, but the headlight switch is also a possibility. Your dimmer switch is integrated into the control wand. I cannot seem to find the instructions for removing the wand, but I think you remove the clamshell from the column and then unscrew the wand assembly from the column. You can test the switch by leaving the cable attached and back-probing the connector with a 12 volt test light or voltmeter. The light green wire should be hot when the headlights are turned on. Leave it on and then probe the red and purple wires. The purple wire should be hot when the switch is on low beam. The red wire should be hot when the switch is on high beams or flash position. If there is no power on the green wire, the headlight switch has failed or the green wire is disconnected or loose. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Stop lites out but stop lite in back window works. Blinkers and hazard work. The fuse box contents do not match the fuse box diagram. Only think I noticed is that the ABS light does not come on at all...


An easy way to test the switch is to jumper the wires together. If the brake lights come on you know the switch is bad. If not, then you have to look elsewhere in the system to solve the problem.

MY BACK UP LITES DON'T WORK. I CHECKED THE FUSES UNDER THE HOOD, & THEY ALL LOOK OK. I CAN'T SEE THE FUSES INSIDE CAR ON THE KICK PANLES. CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT LOCATION THE FUSE MAY BE THAT IS FOR...


your back up lights run on the gage fuse. the problem is probably with the switch on top of the transmission. The switch looks like the picture below and has 2 cables coming out. Remove the connectors from the switch. Grab the one that only has 3 terminals inside and connect the terminals inside the connector that go to the red and yellow wires using a big paper clip. Turn the ignition key on to see if the lights work. If yes, replace the switch. If not, problem is in the wiring. Please let me know if you have questions.

S80 backup light wont work


There are only 2 things to check other than the bulbs, 1st the back up lite fuse, and the 2nd the back up light switch on the trans, if the fuse is ok replace the backup light switch.
