You could have a broken wire for your tail lights or the wiring harness for taillights is grounding out

1994 silverado illumination on instrument panel doesn't work, parking lights and tail lights do not work but headlights and brakelights work fine. All fuses are good. Is this a bad dimmer switch?


No. Dash lights being out could be a bad headlight switch, since the dash lights are routed through the headlight switch, not the dimmer switch. Park and tail lights also controlled by the headlight switch.

My 2002 ford ranger running lights and instrument panel dont work


12V power passes through 15A fuse 33 (the one that keeps blowing?) in the battery junction box and on to the main light switch. When the main light switch is set to PARK, 12 volts is routed via the BRN lead to the park filaments of the dual park/turn lamps. These lights remain on when the headlight switch is turned to HEAD.

The main light switch gets its 12V input from 7.5A fuse 11 in the central junction box and the same 15A fuse (33) identified above. When the main light switch is set to PARK, 12 volts is routed via the BRN lead to the instrument panel dimming module and module output is applied to the panel illuminating lamps.These lights remain on when the headlight switch is turned to HEAD.

The input to fuse 33 is hot all the time so should read 12V. If you read 12V at the TAN/WHT connection with the fuse out, something is definitely not right. I'm sure you have noted that the fuse is common to the non-functioning circuits you mentioned.

Dash and tail lights stopped working on my daughters 1991 toyota celica gt. the fuse has been checked and replaced. it was ok. the headlights were recently changed. is it true the dash and tail lights run...


If the tail lights and the dash lights stopped working and the tail light and the panel lighting fuses are both o.k. and you can find no other blown fuses then the problem is most likely the headlight switch.

97 CHEVROLET BLOWS THE TAIL LIGHT AS SOON AS I TURN ON THE HEADLIGHTS.THE SAME FUSE ALSO RUNS THE DASH PANEL LIGHTS.I REPLACED THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH AND HAD NO LUCK ANY IDEAS


you have a short to ground i would remove the tail lamp that is blowing and check the wiring. look for any rubbed off wires and also check the light socket you may find corrision in the socket. Alos check that the lamp doesn't have any cracks in it or is broken causing water intrusion. hope this helps.
