head lights, parking lights??????

the dash lamps are usually on the park light circuit.
check parking lamps.
check fuses first.

next time say what dash lamps means.
there are a huge number of lamps on the dash
warning lights.
displays
dash parking lamps (back ground glowing for night usage)
called dial lights.
say exactly the lamp that is dead and what it does.

the dash dial lights on all cars have a dimmer control
turn it up,. and bingo the dials glow.

My auto lamp works but the rear lights and dash illumination does not. All fuses are good.


It's the terminals for the tail and dash lights on your headlight switch. It is a common problem though Mercury never seems to have addressed it. I've had to change my switch out 5 times in 2.5 years.

Instrument panel light malfunctioning.


I have a buddy with a Jimmy and his lights did something similar, but once the dash illumination quit, nothing would make them come back on. We ended up replacing the entire light switch assembly, and it fixed it. We assume the dash illumination dimmer switch was shorted out. You may try getting a can of contact cleaner and taking the switch out and spraying all electrical connections related to your lighting to clean them up, THEN look into a new switch if that doesnt help. Hope this helped!!

I got a 1999 chevrolet tahoe. when i put the key in the ignition the head lights,and the dash light comes on but it won't even turn. i change the starter and got a new battery and it still won'


well if you have a dvom/voltmeter check the power at the starter terminals. the main terminal should have power all the time the key wire should have power only when the key is turned to crank engine. if you have power at both then i would start looking at grounds

you have day time running lights you are supposed to manualy turn them on at night. if you dont manually turn them on,on most cars the tail lights are not illuminated the automatic headlamps only turn the head lamps on. and they are controlled by the sensor located in the middle of your dash board
