    No fuse is labeled for the tail lights/dash lights which blew together.

    Fuse box listings shown include head lights/brake lights/back up lights - all those lights function properly.

    The diagram does not list a tail light fuse.

    The fuse box diagrams does not list a fuse for the tail light.

    This is a Saturn. Saturn dealers always remove and retain owners manuals during the first warranty visit. Saturn dealers refuse to share technical information with customers or other dealers, even though there is a common local owner for both dealerships. The Knoxville Saturn dealer will not communicate with the Maryville auto dealers or Knoxville Saturn/Chevy/GMC Goodwrench dealer. Bristol/Johnson City Saturn dealers do not communicate with customers or other dealers. Parts obtained from Saturn are sabatouged For example, any new Saturn part obtained from any Tennessee Saturn dealer will have a terminal malfunction upon insertion, even though the Saturn maintenance installed the part.

    You gotta be crazy to take a Saturn to a Saturn dealer for work. Every trip the Saturn Dealer will loosen the fuse block retainer fastener screws, which, in turn, will result in malfunction of all electronic components and catastropic engine failure.

    The Saturn diagram on the fuse box does not list the tail light fuse. No way a Saturn dealer is touching my Saturn again. Never again.

    Self proclaimed Saturn expert please just answer the question:

    Which fuse to replace for the tail lights?

    As a close Saturn asshociates you should be able to find the answer.

    A call to the Johnson City dealer said replace the 30 A fuse to the ignition. The 30A fuse is not blown. The tail lights should be a 15A fuse.

    'Park' is the title of the 10

    Amp fuse Saturn uses for tail lights and the panel instrument panel.

    Fuse box location: Inside car, passenger side, near floor at passenger's left leg

    No Saturn dealer in East Tennessee could accurately locate the fuse box nor the fuse for "tail light and instrument panel'.

    A local mechanic around the corner found the tail light fuse box

    and the wierd name 'Park' that Saturn calls 'tail light'.

    No thanks to Saturn dealers in the manufacturer's state of Tennessee.

    No thanks to the Previous Saturn Employee Self Proclaimed Expert that drives a Nissan to work at Saturn.

    Snoopycat3, the Saturn expert, didn't know the answer.

    Why should you get paid to intimidate Saturn customers.

Check your owner's manual. There will be a diagram of your fusebox telling you which fuse is the one you need to replace.

Did you check fuses under hood as well? You may want to check if power is getting to the headlight switch. That controls all the lights that quit working.

tail light fuse is blown. If you have trailer hitch/wiring check to make sure connector is not corroded or shorted.

Under hood, near firewall, right (passenger) side of the vehicle behind the strut tower is the second fuse box.

If the fuse isn't blown, check the bulbs. There is a chance that they both blew.

You didn't say if your trailer wiring was factory or after market installed so... look under the back end and trace the wiring from the tail lights. Look for a splice connection. There may be an inline fuse installed between the tail lights and the fuse block. Also look for a bad wire(s) which may have caused the fault.

Abs light, brake light, engine light stay on but do not flash

Well, that sucks, for sure. The only commonality I can see between the engine, abs, brake light and speedometer is possibly a bad vehicle speed sensor. But when you throw in the codes for lost comm and cluster error, that muddied the water a bit. I am sure that there are separate fuses for the trailer wiring harness (my 04 chevy has separate fuses, surely an 09 dodge does) so I doubt trailer wiring could have done all this. A lost comm could be caused by a blown fuse. I would inspect every single fuse I could find in the entire vehicle, also, I have researched your problem a bit and have found a couple possible fixes. One is that the abs sensor on the rear differential is known to be sketchy and needs to be changed. The other is cleaning any ground cables that are connected to the fuse box on the front left fender. I hope this helps!

2009 cargo van chevy 2500-- cant find fuse for left directionals

first never plug back in to that trailer, it may have bad wiring, the next thing to do is to check the front and rear bulbs, they may have blown,if it was a fuse the signal inside would not blink,so this tells me you may have blown the bulbs,and also this trailer is unhooked from the van and lights still dont work?. good luck.

Headlight won't come on

The headlights have 2 fuses. One is a main power feed under the hood in the distrabution box and the other is under the dashboard. Check the fuses and then check for power at the switch. If you have power at the switch then its not a fuse its the switch and the trailer you had connected most likely shorted and back fed into the parking and dash light circuit. Those circuits also run from the light switch.
