Question about 1990 Dodge W150

1 Answer

When I turn my lights on, the marker,turn signals, and brake lights work. the headlights do not. when I turn on the brights, the switch will not stay on. I have to hold the brights on. What do you think the problem could be? Bad switch, relay, or the bulbs. or could there be something else causing them not to work?

I think you either have a defective bulb socket or you still have a ground problem, that is the only thing that can cause this, the ground issue may be caused by the turn signal switch as well.

1994 Grand Marquis, marker, tail and dash lights not working. Brake and turn signals work, fuses are all good, checked them all. Worked on passenger side door window, removed door panel, don't think this...


Your light switch is bad. The switch controls what you listed plus headlights,obviously. I've had this problem before. headlights would be on, but nothing else.

No driving lights?


Hello there - I would suggest checking the fuse for your lights in the fuse box, and check under the hood for a fuse/relay box, and have the relay tested. If the fuses and relays are good, open the hood, and try to check the connection to the headlights and make sure they are securely connected. You also mentioned that when you push the headlights switch forward for brights, and turn on the night time head lights, and neither come on but the daytime lights do, makes me suspect the switch itself may be bad. I would first check the fuses and relays if any. Second, I would replace the bulbs (if replacable). Other than that, my last guess would be an electrical problem in the wiring somewhere. I hope this information helps you fix your lights. Thank you for your time and consideration in my suggestions/answers.

No headlights when turned on


Just a thought. I have a 98 626 5 speed. When the hand brake is applied the head lights go out but the marker lights stay on. Might be a switch issue with the hand brake...worth a look. The sensor should be located at the pivot point for the brake handle.

Electrical problem


Find the ground wire on one of the lights and add another ground wire to a good clean metal surface and see if that fixes the problem. It defently sounds like a ground problem at one of the lights.

Headlights wont come on and bright lights won't stay on hold bright light switch and blower works


I had the same problem. The solution is simple; the ignition switch needs to be replaced. This is an easy do-it-yourself project. Here are instructions:

Check for a switch on ebay, they are about $15. After 10 years they wear out.
