Head lights i got home from work tonight and realized both my head lights were not working. I thought maybe it was a fuse so i checked them all. (they were fine) then i got another blub and replaced that... still not working. after looking more in depth i realized my turn signals are not working either! any idea what it could be?

The common denominator for all your front lights would be the grounding. Check/verify that the wiring harness leading to the headlights and signal lights have a grounding wire. Alternately, you can try hard wiring an external grounding wire from the metal casing of the bulb sockets to the bare metal/chassis of the vehicle. Of course it would be also apt to check on the fueses and the relays for the said lights/lamps.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a 1999 Subaru Legacy Outback wagon 5-speed manual. The issue I have is, today the ABS light came on. I restarted the car and it did not come back on, I thought nothing of it. Then tonight after it...

First suggestion is to take out the 20 amp fuse before you have a massive wiring problem from a burnt harness. IT has a 10 amp fuse to protect the wiring and anything over will set the car alight if there is a dead short.. Next run the fault codes to find out why the ABS light came on. Have a check done on the alternator and check the alternator drive belt and tension. I suspect that the alternator has insufficient out put to handle all the electrics and that means either the alternator or a failing battery.

95 wrangler dash lights wont work. no blown fuse, tail lights and all other lights work fine. Worked one day, didn't work the next. Please help with ideas!

Hate to post this simple solution; however, maybe someone slid the dimmer switch until the dash lights were essentially turned off (this happened to me and took me a little while to realize what happened).

Reverse lights do not work

definately check the fuse, if it is good then you need to check the condition of ground in the light bulb sockets, if good then you will have to check the reverse light switch
