SOURCE: no turn signals, no tail lights and fuses are good

Replace the non-working tail light bulb. Try replacing the bulbs for the turn signals. If that doesn't work, replace the relay.

SOURCE: my dash board lights and tail light went out fuses

It could be that your brake light switch, located right behind the upper part of your brake peddle, has a short or is no good anymore. Check the wires for cracks, breaks or exposure also

SOURCE: no tail lights

You should have a fuse panel under you dash inside. This is where the fuses are located for lights. Don't know the exact location, but you can pull each fuse to see if it is bad. This won't hurt anything. It just keeps you from hunting down a diagram of where the fuse is located.

SOURCE: tail lights don't work but brake lights do. fuses are all good.

the bit which the bulb sits in might be faulty, only saying this, because I have had same issue with my car.

SOURCE: fuses good but no tail lights

Did you check for power at the bulb itself? Take a test light and go from power inside the bulb socket to ground. If you have a good strong light, then I would start looking for a bad ground wire.

Problems of this nature are almost always associated with a poor ground connection.

Grounds at the tail lights are usually very poor, bad enough so that the common fix is to tap the metal housing with a sheet metal screw, and run a ground strap from there to a clean spot on the frame. On badly rusted trucks, I have run a ground strap clear up to the battery to insure a good connection.

Grounds can also be bad at the front lamp sockets, you should check power to the bulbs first (both in park lamp mode and in turn signal mode) to insure a good source of power, then clean the grounds.

Yes it sounds like the switch is stuck in the park position.
You could pull the harness plug for the switch and check the circuits with a meter, or replace the switch.

even though you checked all fuses and relays and have power the relay could over heat and shut them down. switch relay with another relay and check again. does the front markers go out also or just the rear?

My tail running lights dont work and i checked the fuses how do i fix it


you say you checked the fuse so I ASSUME its good? and getting power? there is a Tail Light Relay. If the relay is good, then that fuse (tail light) will have power. If it does not, then check the relay, maybe rap on it. The relay is round up under the dash, left kick panel area. just below where the tail light fuse is.

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!
