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.

Locate fuse for dashboard lights


Check for a fuse box underneath the dashboard in the drivers side. Some times there is a plastic lever that needs to be pulled down in order for the fuse panel to swing down. Check your car manaul to see where the dasboard light fuse is located, some times the fuse can be located in the engine compartment where you will find a rather big black plastic box with relays and other fuses. Another fuse box location is found on the passenger side underneath the dashboard or kick panel, better to check the owners manual so you don't have to look into all 3 locations.

When you do find the right fuse block, look for a fuse that is labled Insturment Lights or Cluster Panel, that usually indicates the dashboard light fuse. The fuse used in most dashboard lights is around the 15 to 20 Amp range.

1996 ford taurus parasitic draw test - test light on when everything disconnected pulled fuses under the hood till light went off its the 40AMP jct / BLK fuze was wondering what that fuze was and if there...


Yes, there would be a fuse box inside car. Either driver's side at kick panel, or passenger side in the glove box or underneath at the kick panel. When you find it, put that 40 amp fuse back in and continue with your test. I don't know what that junction block fuse is for. Surely someone will post it.

Central locking not working


Check "back up" fuse in under hood fuse box.

If that doesn't work there are some more fuses under the kick panel inside the car. Whenever something isn't working for me electrically, I've usually shorted out a fuse in there. I've never figured out which fuse does what but i just keep checking until i've found a burnt one.

The fuses rating is marked on the top face you will see when cover removed(it is either 10 or 15 amps) replace it with whatever was in place to start with, never larger.

The fuse pulls straight up and out. There are spare fuses in both the under-hood and under-dash fuse boxes.

Hope this helps.

Where is the fuse for the heater on a 1991 toyota pickup. my heater was working when i got out, and the next time i got in, the heater fan would not work. no noise , no nothing


Check the fuse box under the dash, which you may have already done, also check under the hood there is a secondary fuse box and it will list the heater and fuse or it may have a relay for the heater, you my have a bad relay for heater.

Tail lights don't work on 1998 Chevy Silverado.


check the wiring from the tailights back to the fuse panel, it sounds like an open connection. if i recall correctly check under the dash on the drivers side near the fuse panel for a bunch of wires in a bundle and look carefully for a wire or two that are cut/shorted/or seperated, you can also check under the drivers side kick panel by the hood release.
