SOURCE: tail lights don t work

Remove the headlamp switch. Check power at the brown wire. If you have power then the problem is after the switch. If you don't have power with the headlamps on then recheck the fuses.

Headlight fuse might be blown. Check the fuse panel and replace it with one rated for the same amperage.

Dash lights and tail lights don't work


Lights and electrical circuits are sometimes in pairs so that you notice something is wrong (tail lights and dash). On a '90 merc grand marq., that would be fuse #4,the 15 amp blue one, in the panel next to your left foot. If you are lucky,it
just failed from age. If you are not lucky, there is a short in the system containing
the dash, tail,parking,side marker, license lamps and trailer tow relay if equiped.I had to replace the push/pull main light switch which was shorted. If you are lucky, just replacing the fuse in the panel will do it. Referance Grand Marquis Owners Manual for fuses and function.

Tail lights don't work on 83 cutlass supreme


I assume you checked the bulbs and they were good? It's possible that the sockets have gone bad and need replacing. The tail lights are fused through the instrument panel lights. that fuse should be in the middle of your fuse box, marked "instr". If the fuse is good check to see if the dash lights come on when you turn the headlight switch on. If they don't then change the headlight switch. hope this helps.

try turning the headlight knob left to right several times, and jiggle the switch at night. Also check your fuse panel should be a 10 amp or less fuse that says "Insr" or something like it.

Interior dash and running lights dont work but my signal and brake lights work else works


Look at fuse #18, a 15 amp fuse, in the fuse block. This fuse powers both the tail lights and instrument cluster lights. Usually both of these light systems are powered by the same fuse so when your cluster isn't lit up you'll know right away that your tail lights aren't working as it's not safe to drive without tail lights. Your brake, turn, and head lamps are powered by different circuits. Hope this helps and good luck!
