Many manufacturers put the tail lights and dash lights on the same circuit since when we drive, we can not see if our tail lights are on or off. When the dash lights go out, anybody with an IQ over 60 will realize that there is a problem. Check again for fuses taking note of dirty or corroded fuse terminals or sockets. Also be sure that there is not another fuse box under the hood. Next, get a year/make/model specific wiring diagram.These can be had from multiple internet sources. Any extra stuff ( stereo, electrical equip, etc) patched in under the dash? Look for broken or torn connections. Good luck.

I have a 1995 nissan pathfinder. i keep have electrical issues. when i first got it two months ago it wouldnt start. replaced battery terminals and it was fine for a while. then the meter fuse would blow...


It sounds like just the one problem. Your tails and the dash illumination lights are all on the one circuit that the fuse keeps blowing. Don't get confused thinking of another main fuse, just focus on this one circuit..
It is very seldom that a short develops at the fuse box, it certainly can happen from corrosion or loose terminals, but it is rare. More likely is a bad wire just like the one you found near the exhaust. Somewhere very likely a wire has had insulation stripped or scraped off, soon as the wire touches metal it will blow the fuse. Were any other wires damaged in that harness for the speed sensor? Or do you see any wires hanging down from under the truck, anywhere going back to the tail lights?
If you did the stereo yourself, were any wires cut going to the dash? I doubt this as the wire for the dash lights would be in a wiring harness that is like a bundle from under the dash up to the instrument cluster. You just have to keep looking for the short.

I have a 94 ford probe, The radio works when it wants to.. but the prblem is the tail lights and dash lights went out about a week ago, Checked all fuses in car and under hood checked all light bulbs all...


You need to replace headlight switch - if fuses, bulbs, wiring looks good. Avoid the toggle switch idea, you'll be opening a whole new can of worms.

Where is the fuses for the dashbord lights on 1998 nissan pathfinder


The fuse should be located in the main chassis fuse panel, on the drivers side, beneath the dash area. Look for a removable panel of some sort. I believe the dash lights may be on the same circuit as your tail lights. If your tail lights still work, you might not have a blown fuse. Check to make sure you don't have the dimmer switch turned all the way down. A lot of people never use their dimmer switches and completely forget about them until the lights inadvertently get turned all the way down. If it's not the fuse or the dimmer, you may have a bad headlight switch or other wiring issue.

1988 pathfinder no dash lights no revers lights no tail lights no gaiges


If they all stopped working at the same time then it is probably a fuse or possibly 2. Check your fuse panels in the dash and under the hood. The dash lights and gauges should be a fuse labeled instrument cluster or guages, it is probably blown. The other fuse to look for will be the tail light fuse. This is where I would begin.

What started this mess? tailights, fog lights, brake lights....


The relay has nothing to do with the tail lights, but replacing the switch sounds like a good idea. There's a nut holding it in place, see http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/switches/switch-headlight/1027524/ to get an idea of the construction. And the price. This is not worth fiddling about unreliable workarounds...
In addition, if fuses 15 and/or 16 burn frequently there might be a problem with the tail light cabling.

Good luck

Dashboard and tail lights out on 97" Nissan Sentra


I took my pathfinder to U-HAUL and asked them to check the towing lights. There was a pinched wire by my tail light and they cut it and changed it out for me, it was $5. I am so glad that I didnt take it to Nissan. My second step was going to be getting a new dimmer switch..but the guy who worked on my car said that wouldnt be the problem. He also told me that replacing a fuse that kept blowing out was dangerous and after the first time to get it checked out. Learn something new every day!!
