    ONE SHOULD FIRST CHECK "WITH A TEST LITE" THAT THERE IS POWER GOING TO THE MAIN FUSE. IF THERE IS POWER TO THE MAIN FUSE AND THE FUSE IS GOOD. THEN IT IS MOST LIKELY THE "MULTI SWITCH, TURN SIGNAL SWITCH, COMBO SWITCH" WHAT EVER ONE CHOOSES TO CALL IT. ALTHOUGH THERE IS ALWAYS THE POSSIBILITY OF `A SEVERED WIRE OR A CONNECTION THAT HAS COME DISCONNECTED, BETWEEN THE FUSE AND THE MULTI SWITCH... THANKS FOR YOUR HELP IN THIS MATTER AND I WILL GET BACK WITH YOU TO LET YOU KNOW IF A NEW MULTI FUNCTION SWITCH SOLVES THE PROBLEM. THANKS AGAIN. ~NEWBY~

Hi

It is the indication of a bad turn signal/multifunction switch. Did you check the dimmer control? If you did and they still don't work the light switch connections may have burnt out. Check the back of the light switch. If they are burnt, you will need to replace the light switch and light switch harness.

Also It is possible you have a wiring issue, or that some wire bundles have come out of place from the back of your dash/steering column. So take out the whole dash and go through the whole wire harness from the fuse box throughout the whole dash.
It would be advisable to take your car to someone to check it out.


Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Thank you for contacting fixya.com

Couple of possibilities - first the obvious - main fuse (Look closely- I've had some that I swore looked good - turn out bad) Headlight switch & dimmer switch (lever to flip between hi's/lo's) - I've seen a RASH of them and from no specific manufacturer. They're made cheap and don't take temp changes and lots of action.
I'd check fuse first, swap with similar and if it's good then its switch.

    Your truck doesn't happen to have trailer wiring does it? If so, I'd check for corrosion in the plug and check wires for chaffing.

Dash lights dont work


My dash lights, console lights, and left taillights all went out at once...
The wiring harness that runs from the fuse box above the driver side wheel well into the cab melted and grounded out. Had to take off the plastic wheel well cover, cut and rewire all of the ground wires. Works fine now. Still puzzled why no fuses blew.

My son reversed the terminals on his 1986 Nissan King Cab 4x4. All works now but the Battery light on the dash is dimly lit and the radio dose not work. I checked the fuses on the inside panel and all seem...


if the battery light is on when the engine is running you may have damaged the voltage regulator in the alternator, as for the radio it has certainly sustained serious damage,it might be cheaper to replace than to repair......hope this helps....cheers

2002 Dodge Van towing a Rock Climbing Wall. No


I would think that the wires from the RCW (rock climbing wall) that control the running lights are wired to the interior dash lights of the van, and a fuse blew, killing the above mentioned lights. Check the fuse block for a bad fuse, probably labeled inst lights or inst lgt. Did you make the trip there in daylight, and trip home at night? The fuse for the dash lights couldn't handle the extra drain of the RCW running lights.

2001 fronteer crew 4x4 dash lights


Check instrument panel fuse first. It would be labled on the fuse door or in manual. If not blown i would suspect the dimmer switch. There are to many bulbs in a instrument panel for them all to blow at one time.

No instrument panel lights on 1995 Nissan King Cab


Ye, the dimmer switch still works.

I know this because, when I turn on the left direction flasher, the panel lights pulse dimly on and off with the direction light flasher.

Do I have a defective direction light flasher? if so where is it located?
