The dash lights are connected to fuse #2 in the fuse block which controls: Instrument cluster, illumination, license plate lamp, parking lamps, side marker lamps, tail lamps, (radio, climate control illumination). The fuse block is located just under the dash right about where your left knee is when… you are sitting in the driver seat. Note: If only your dash lights are out and the other lights listed above are working, then your dimmer may be turned down (located on the left side of the dash, down low by your left knee as well) or else the dimmer may be bad or there is a wiring problem. Good luck. (MORE)

How do you fix brake lights and turn signal lights on a 1995 Ford Bronco when the fuse is not blown and was working perfectly the night before?
\n. \n Answer \n. \nI have found that changing the FLASHER will usually bring the lights right back to working order.\n. \nAlthough another thing I have discovered is that even after changing a flasher and while the fuse may not actually be blown, the terminals on the fuse can be oxydized, tr…y lightly scraping the blades, either with a fingernail or pocket knife. And if after re-installing them the lights then work. Then yes all you need is a new fuse. Do not continue to use that fuse, remember it is going bad. Anyway I've seen this as the cause, maybe 4 out of 5 times.\n. \nNow, there is something more to be said if the Hazard lights themself dont work, but your signals, tail lights and so forth are working. This will require pulling the steering wheel and column shroud and replacing the turn signal hazard switch.\n. \nGood Luck\nHappy Motoring\n. \n. \nSometimes the answer is even simpler. Check the bulbs. When they are old and become brittle, they tend to "burn out" when shut off and the filiment cools and contracts. (MORE)
Answer . get a test light the one that looks like a needle with a clamp on the end of a wire put the clamp on a metal part of car take out a new fuse you will see 2 silver ends on fuse one on each side of the number. go to your fuse block and touch the needle end on one then the other of the same f…use in fuse box if it lights both times the fuse is ok if only one side lights it was bad. you may have to use needle nose pliers to take out the fuse. You can also simply pull the fuse out and look for a break in the metal across the center of the fuse. The Owners Manual even has a diagram of what a blown fuse looks like. See "Related Questions" below for more (MORE)
You accidentally crossed the jumper cables to your 1995 Ford Escort and now the whole thing is dead despite a new battery Is there a main fuse that could have blown or did you kill your car?
Answer . \nthere is a fuselink in the battery lead to the starter that likely blew.
Answer . \nmost times it's becauce your tail lights are not working. most auto makers do that to alert you that your tail lights are not woking.
Why would a 1995 Ford Escort lights stay on even after the car is turned off usually after the car gets wet and you can only turn them off by pulling the engine fuse?
Answer . I would guess it's an electrical problem. Perhaps there's a frayed wire or something, that when it gets wet, completes a circuit to turn the lights on.
You would have a better chance of winning the lottery against All dashlights burning out at the same time. Check to see that the dashlight dimmer switch is NOT turned off. If it is okay then it is possibly defective. jd
Answer . \nIn the kickboard fuse panel, marked as "meter" and it's a 10A fuse.
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nThe fuse box is under the dash by your left foot. The diagram is on the panel and there are replacement fuses in the bx if you have never used them.
Answer . It's strange that it would blow. Make sure you remedy the problem if one exists before replacing the fuse... or it might just blow again. There should be two fuse locations. One in the engine area on the drivers side near the battery. The fuse box cover should indicate what fuses wh…at. In the passenger compartment, it should be by the brake pedal along the side of the car. It too will be labeled. Not sure which one has the fuse you're looking for, but a simple check of the covers will indicate the proper one. (MORE)

Answer . \nThe turn signal lights fuse is mounted in the main fuse panel under the dash, drivers side. You may also have a bad Flasher Relay if the lights come on but do not flash. It is located: FRONT SEATING AREA, DRIVER SIDE, UNDER DASH, ABOVE KICK PANEL, MOUNTED ON UPPER FIREWALL.
Its different for all models, check owners manual . fuse for dashboard lights . The fuse is usually located between the driver door and the steering wheel under a piece of plastic, Depending how old the car is.
Answer . \nfuse box should be located drivers side kick panel. pull cover off. cover indicates fuse (pwr wind. 30a should be exactly in center. inside of cover should ave a white puller and a few spare fuses. if not, use a pair of needle nose pliers. pull fuse out and push new fuse in.
Answer . If the brake lights have good bulbs in them then your brake light switch has probably gone out. This is located at the brake pedal usually toward the rear of the hinge part at the top of the pedal. If you check this this is the most common reason for brake light failure. There is no one f…use that is dedicated to just the rear lights. There would be several more things not working. I hope this helps some. (MORE)

Accidentally crossed the jumper cables to my 1998 ford escort sport zx2 and the whole thing is dead. What fuses could i have blown and where are they the computer and where is it located?
Start with checking main fuses usually near battery. may also be on battery + cable. Computer is probably fine. Fuses are there to protect this component.

Answer . The fuse box is on the inside, driver side, lower left panel. Look underneath where you would find the hood release latch.
pull out the fuse and in the middle of the plasitc body you will see a metal strip if this is smoked an canot be seen or the plastic has lost color in anyway it is blown you could also apply a volt meter to both side of the fuse an turn it to dc an if it does not get any volts it is blown but just l…ooking is way easyer (MORE)
Answer . the fuse panel should be either under dash on left side or if you open the hood it will be right by the hinges for the hood it will be a little black box or open your two front doors it may be where your doors meet the dash
Answer . Open the fuse box (left lower dashboard), take out the fuse, put in a new one.
Before you change any fuses, try turning the brightness adjustment knob up and down vigorously. Do this at night or in a dark area. This is a common symptom of Toyota vehicles. Also try replacing the headlight switch, this feeds the panel lights. The fuse is rarely the problem. firstname.lastname@example.org
Check to see if the parking/tailights are working. Could be a bad fuse, or switch. Could be an open in the dimmer rheostat
Drivers side kick panel under the dash most likely left side pretty high up above brake pedal.
The purpose of a fuse is to restrict amperage traveling through an electrical circuit to a specified value. It does this by inserting itself into the circuit and running the current through a metal strip inside the fuse. When the circuit is carrying to much amperage the metal strip will heat and the…n melt away, breaking the circuit and protecting anything that would be damaged due to the overload. In order to correct it, you must locate the fuse, remove it, and replace it with a new fuse of the same amperage rating. (MORE)
No the tail lights are in the fuse box on the drivers side the dash lights are just bulbs you have to replace when they burn out.
On a 1995 ford escort all air conditionner fuses have been changed and the system won't work what could be the trouble?
Did you have the system pressure tested? There must be enough pressure in the system or the A/C system will not start. You also will need to see if the A/C clutch is turning when the A/C controls are on...
It is usually fuse number 12 in the fuse box and is a 7.5amp fuse.
Depends on the year and make of your Mondeo. Your owners manual should tell you whether it is in the central or auxillary fuse box. The central fuse box is (depending on age & make) behind the glove box, which, with a bit of jiggling, you can prise off the plastic 'c' clips at the base. A fuse locat…ion plan should be on the side of your glove box and, in conjunction with your owners manual, you'll be able to work out which fuse it is for the dashboard lights. (MORE)
Typically, that means that there is either a damaged wire, something is plugged in wrong or someone has connected something to the wiring improperly.
Where and how do you change the fuse for the dash bord lighting sytem in the 1993 190e 2.3l
the last person to answer this queston is a jerk...it depends on what fuse. there are main engine fuses under the hood that could prevent the car from starting...these are the ones that dont look like fuses you can buy at walmart...they are quite large and high amperage.
It depends what fuse but yes it is possible. If it is the ignition fuse then yeah your car won't start. If it is the fuse for your horn, yeah the car will still start.
Fuses That "Blow" Repeatedly . Without being able to "hands-on" troubleshoot the circuit served by the repeatedly blowing fuse, no one on this site can identify the specific cause/defect. .

No not at all, really just cost a matter of a few cents.You can buy a pack of flat push in type fuses for newer cars or the round glass type for older cars. Usually a pack of 5 for around a dollar.
There normally is a fuse in most vehicles for the dashboard lamps. The location depends on the specific vehicle. The fuse cavity is usually abbreviated as (inst) for instrument cluster or (IPL) for instrument panel lamps. There are usually two areas on most newer vehicles where the fuses are located…. Inside the cabin they can be on the left or right ends of the dash panel or under the left side of the dash panel. There is another fuse block under the hood usually on the left or right inner fender panels and normally referred to as the power distribution center. Look at an owners manual for that particular car and it should guide you right to it (MORE)
In the main fuse box you will usually find a fuse marked "inst lmps" or "dash lts" but first check the headlight switch on your vehicle. All vehicles have an adjustment for brightness of your dashlights by either rotating the light switch itself or a wheel switch next to it. It is possible to turn y…our dash lights completely off with this switch if you want to and some of them are real easy to turn off by accident. The same switch if turned far enough will cause your overhead light to come on. (MORE)
Does the car door have a key slot and do you have a key for it or not
Go to your fuse box, and it should have some kind of listing for lights. It could be the "accessory" fuse or some other light fuse. Its more of trial and error until you find the winner.
Remove the fuse and check it with a ohm meter. If you have no ohm meter then just replace it with a new fuse.
When an electrical circuit in a car fails, the most likely reason is a blown fuse. The owner's manual will contain a diagram of the different fuses, each circuit identified. Identifying the possible fuse, from the manual, and then looking at the fuses physically, will most likely show which fuse is …involved. There is also likely, a fuse diagram within the fuse box showing where each fuse is. The fuse needs to be visually inspected. Good fuses will show a shiny metal link on top. Blown fuses will show a dark gap. Sometimes, you need to pull the fuse out of the socket and look at it through the light. You can then see the broken link clearly. Another method of finding blown fuses is by using a volt meter. Normally, the voltage across a fuse is trivial, but when a fuse has blown, the voltage across it will be around 13 volts. This is because the circuit has been broken and the full battery voltage is across it. For a tail light, the lights need to be turned on when checking the voltage across the fuse. (MORE)
