Question about 1990 Mazda Protege

1 Answer

The taillights on my 1990 Protege don't work. The headlights (both high and low beams), brake lights, reverse lights, and turn signals all work, and I've replaced the bulbs, which did not fix the problem. Seeing as all the other lights work, I'm not sure if it could be a fuse/relay issue, and really need to get it solved so I can safely drive at night. Thank you!

Your Protege has a dedicated fuse for the tailight circuit, as well as a relay. The fuse should be located in the passenger compartment fuse box, but it could be located in the main fuse box in the engine compartment drivers side inside fender area. It should be labeled TAILIGHT, and be 15A, or 20A. The relay is most likely in the main fuse box as well, but I can't tell from the attached drawing so you'll have to track it down if necessary.

I have a problem with the low beams on my headlights. The high beams works just fine. All of the other lights(turn signal, emergency lights, etc.) work except for the low beams.


Check the fuses first. then replace the turn signal switch if all fuses are good. All the lights run threw it, except the high brake light on the rear.

The head lights are powered by the battery through the ignition switch. The headlight relay may be malfunctioning.

I have found a link for your car in case you wish to replace. It's the same I use to buy parts for my car. I hope it's useful.

My 1984 chevrolet silverado high beams lights works and low beam lights, turning lights, emergency light and brakes lights don't work. I need help!


Those lights are on different circuits. The high and low beam lights are powered thru the headlight switch, the turn signals, brake, and hazards go thru the turn signal switch.
I would want to know if each circuit has power at the switch that controls it.

No headlights come on but high beams work as well as the other lights the fuses seem to be ok. Please help.


If your highbeams are working fine, you must be referring to your low beams not working I would simply check the 2 bulbs and make sure the low beam filament is good, theres a strong possibility that your BOTH low beam filaments are bad and require replacement of both headlight bulbs to get them working again its a very simple repair.....

ok put the ground back were you cut it and remove bezel near head light switch test powers in and out with 12 volt test light on low beam and high beam you may just have a bad head light switch make sure you have headlight power coming out of the swicth for low beams.

Hi beams, low beams, taillights, and dash lights stopped working.


Might want to check the fuses if you haven't already.

I have no headlights!! parking lights, taillights,and blinkers all work fine. none of my fuses or bulbs are blown


I have a 2004 ram 2500 and all my lights work except for low beams. It is not in the switch, I haver replaced the switch with no change. This is a circuit problem with these dodge pickups. I haven't firgured out what it is but it isn't the switch. and unless the low beams and high beams are fused seperate, it isn't a fuse problem either. i have looked for a fuse and can't even find the fuse for the headlights. Im lost like you!

Low beam headlight


either the connection from the wire is corroded or the headlight simply needs replacying, my bet is the latter.

The headlights are stuck on high beam.


pull on the signal lever toward you (ceter position). the signal lever controls the head lights either high beam or low beam. if you pull on the signal lever toward you again, you will have high beam temporarily. and if you push the signal lever towards the front, you will have the high beam locked.
