Why would park and tail and license and dash lights not work while head and signal do after bare wires on lic lights touched but now fixed all fuses ARE good on 98 Ford Ranger?
look for more fuses, tail and turn are ALWAYS at least two fuses. fix damage possibly you blew the switch if you had too large a fuse in during the "repair" process. Relentless

This can be used for either the back-up lights or the brake lights. There are a couple of ways to track this down. Of course, make sureyour fuse and bulbs are in good condition. Disconnect the wiring tothe switch. Measure the feed wire and make sure you have 12 volts.Note: Make sure the key is turne…d to the RUN position so you havejuice to the wire. If there is no voltage, trace the wire back tothe fuse and find out why! If you have 12 volts, connect a jumperwire of the correct gauge to jumper the connector. If the lightscome on, it looks like a bad switch. Put the car in reverse and use an ohm meter to check the resistancein the switch. It should be minimal. If not, replace the switch. If everything looks good back to the bulbs. Go to the next step. Disconnect the two bulbs and, put the car in reverse to engage thelights. Note: Try not to do this with the car running. If youinsist, have a buddy with a strong, steady foot and chock thetires. Someone needs to be in the back measuring the power! Measure the voltage at the socket. It should be about 12 volts. Ifit isn't you need to trace the wires back to the switch. If you see12 volts, install one of the bulbs and remeasure the voltage. Itmay be that when there is no load on the circuit, everything looksfine. When you put a load on the system and the voltage drops, youhave have a bad connection somewhere. Check your ground connectionson the lights and check the connector at the switch. 2001 Mazda 626: On a 2001 Mazda 626 (and I suspect many other), there is a relay inthe fuse box under the hood. It is labelled the TNS relay. If yourhorn or headlights still work, swap the relays between one of themand the TNS relay. If, after making the swap, your lights now workand your horn does not, you have found the culprit. Unfortunately,neither Advance Auto, Autozone, O'Reilly, or Carquest stocks thisrelay. Some can order it - $19 and change at Carquest. (MORE)
Why won't a 1989 Ford Mustang LX tailights and dash lights work if the headlights signals and dome light work and all fuses and bulbs are OK?
Check the light switch for a burnt connector. Your Taillights are on a different fuse than your headlights or directionals I would recheck your fuses again. Could also be worth checking for open circuit wiring and bulb holders?
Why would the tail lights and dash lights on a 94 Nissan pickup stop working when the fuse and wire connections are good and all other lights work?
Answer . \nUse a volt-meter to measure the voltages and see what you are getting. You might have a couple of broken wires.
Why would the tail lights brake lights and speedometer lights in a 1988 Toyota Camry LE not work when the fuses and bulbs are all good?
The Toyota Camry has a weakness with tail lights and break lights. The Camry uses a sensor, called the "Lamp Failure Indicator Sensor", and if it burns out, you will lose your tail lights, or brake lights, or both.. This sensor is a small 2 inch box, which comes in different colours, like yellow, w…hite, grey, for example. It is located in the trunk, driver side. You have to lift up the coverings, and it is attached to the wire harness. If you can find it, just unclip it and remove it from the car. Then, open the back of the box, and check the circuit. If there are burn marks, or some wires are broken, then that's the problem.. A brand new sensor can cost 200 to 300 dollars. You might find one at the wreckers. They usually charge 5 to 10 dollars.

If you grounded a bare wire while installing speakers in a 1994 Dodge Ram and now the interior lights and radio don't work but the fuses are all good what could be wrong?
Answer The fuse for the radio's constant power and the domelight might be located under the hood in the fuse panel there. Also the same fuse should power the cigar lighter. Hey theres also another place that may have gone wrong, if you have power seats under the driver side, the plug is either co…rroded or you must put a jumper wire from the redwire with a light blue stripe to the pink wire, this will power up the radio, the interior lights and the power mirrors. I chased this down for 5 hrs to figure it out. good luck. (MORE)
Why would the bare wires going to license plate lights touch each other and spark and now the parking and tail lights instru lights are all out on a 1998 Ford Ranger but all fuses and bulbs are OK?
Answer . \nI had this happen to me once. \nIt was a fuse I would change the fuse anyway.\nSometimes the fuse boxes are located in more than one location.\nFuse are the weakest link in any circuit. If you had a larger fuse in place of what it was designed for, it may have caused the wiring to open… up at some other location. (MORE)
What is wrong your 1990 Nissan PU dash lights dont work all bulbs good and fusees good how do you fix?
Answer . More than likely they are just turned off. There is a rheostat that is used to adjust the brightness of the instrument lights. If it is turned too far the lights will go out. Find this rheostat and turn it left or right until your lights come back on.. Answer . Quite likely it is tha…t useless wheel mentioned above. It took me a year to realize that my dashboard light was always out after I cleaned the interiors and when my toddler finally started playing with that wheel, I noticed the lights went back on.... Answer . \nThe dash dimmer switch that they mentioned is also bad to go out. I had the same problem and had to replace mine. 40-50 at the dealer, 8 from a junkyard.\nThe problem was so bad that Nissan redesigned it sometime after 91, so make sure you get the same type of switch.

Blinkers on 91 cavalier aren't working all fuses good new flasher followed the wiring from signal lights to modular box could this be the problem how do you fix is it expensive?
Answer . \nIf your fuses are good, the flasher is good, and the bulbs are good; There are two probable causes: Your signal switch is worn out, or you have a short to ground on the wires to the signal lights. Pick one or the other, or could be both.
You have a 1993 buick regal and head lights dash tail lights dont work but turn signal and brake lights do any help would be great?
Maybe a fuse or relay burned out sounds like a bad multifunction switch, very common issue with older gm's in the 90s. Believe it or not gm wired the brake lights to be powered off the multi-function switch assembly in the steering column
Some one installed a radio in 00 Nissan car and now tail lights fuse keeps blowing how do you fix it also dash light quit working?
Answer . \nDash lights and tailights on many cars are fused together; someone tapped into this circuit for power to the radio and has caused a short. Unhook the power lead for the radio and splice it into its own circuit and the problem will go away. I hope this helps you. Mark

What would cause a 1996 Monte Carlo ls to not have parking lights or dash lights but the brake lights and turn signals work bulbs and fuses are good?
Check your fuses again because the parking lights and dash lights often share the same fuse; that is why they both quit. Answer Parking light fuse is not in the fuse block that's on the right side of the dash - its in the fuse block mounted to the drivers wheel well in the engine compartment. Che…ck the fuze block under the hood on drivers sidr near washer tank fuze block in bad spot gets corrosion and causes the power to be stoped at that point , unhook block and clean connections.

\n. \n Light Problems \n. \n. \nCheck and make sure you have the right bulbs and fuses installed. However, it sounds like a wiring problem. Probably at the rear of the vehicle. If you are in a "snow" area state, the ice and snow formation can break or pull wires apart. Also, check your ground… wires. (MORE)
Why don't the brake lights turn signals or hazards work on the dash or outside on a ford expedition if the fuse is good?
Try the WD-40 fix. The problem is most likely in your hazard flasher switch. Spray WD-40 around the switch and pop it up and down a few time and wiggle it around a bit. This will fix this type of problem most of the time. There is no separate flasher unit as you may remember in older cars. The flash…er is incorporated within this multifunction switch. . Answer . Check the wires, they may not be making contact. You can also check the bulbs. Maybe you can also try changing the fuse just for the heck of it, sometimes that helps. I think there are two fuses that it runs off of, so check both the box ubnder the dash and the one under the hood.. FAULTY RELAY . THE FLASHER RELAY IS USUALLY FAULTY (MORE)
Answer . \nCheck the fuse again; tailights and dash lights are fused together on most vehicles. You need to pull fuse and test with a circuit tester and test both sides where the fuse plugs in.
Why would the signal lights not work at all. if the fuse is good and hazzard light. work on a 1996 Pontiac Bonneville?
Flasher Relay . \nMore than likely a bad flasher relay for the turn signals. The hazard lights use a different flasher relay.

No lights on the rear at all Fuses and relays all goodAll front lights workI was wiring a trailer plug in and touched 2 wires together brake tail.Brake lights and tail lights were on.at time 99-Ranger?
Answer by Jessica Todd . Make sure that you dont have a open circuit. recheck the the wires and make sure that somewhere in the back that it is grounded. If that doesnt work then it is possible that there is an inline fusible link that was burned through. ( I dont know off hand if there is one fo…r the rear lights. You might have to get a hold of a wiring schematic to see.) I would recheck the wiring first. Make sure everything is correctly and thoroughly connected. I hope this helps some. (MORE)

How to fix boat trailer lights Both blink while left turn signal is on Tail lights work ok when head lights are on and when right turn signal is on?
Check ground circuit. Check bulbs they are duble filamented one may be burned out. Seems to me there is a wire crossed at the harness. I think the vehicle left turn signal wire is hooked up to the trailer tail lights wire. Usually there are four wires at the trailer harness, yellow, green, white, …and brown, The brown wire is usually the tail lights and side marker lights, the white wire is ground, the yellow and green go to the left and right signal lights.

What would cause the running or tail lights on your 1994 Camry not to work while the head lights brake lights and turning signal lights work?
There is a relay in the trunk (left hand side wall) that may have been burnt. You may want to check this out...had the same problem with my 1992 Camry.....different year of course. The wires to the running lights were broken and exposed, caused a short, which in turn burnt the relay in the trunk.

Why don't my headlights work when i turn on my lights nothing all I have are the parking and tail lights. no lowhighbeams dash lights work. fuses are ok what can be the problem?
Some vehicles have headlight relays, normally in the fuse box (newer cars). Depending on the year of the vehicle, the dimmer (Hi/low beam) switch on the steering column or the floor could be the culprit.. Lastly, wiring, grounds, corrosion on the terminals.

What needs to be checked when your tail lights as well as your dash lights and brake lights the headlight switch has been changed and the fuses and bulbs are all good in a 98 Ford Contour?
I ha dthis very same problem and couldn't find anything. I replaced the headlight switch twice and while I was trying it the second time I turned the switch on and off and it worked!? What I discovered is that it wasnt the switch itself but the plug that goes into the switch. It wasn't making a good… connection or plugging in tight anymore therefore not working. I wasnt in any mood to go buy the wiring harness for that and route it through as far as it goes and it just looked like a pain because I couldn't see where all the wires went without tearing the dash apart so I turned the wires onto the switch where it worked or made contact. I then used duct tape to hold it in place to make the connection and I haven't had trouble with it in more then 5 years now. (MORE)

"Blowing" Fuses .

Many ignorant people will suggest installing a larger fuse to prevent blowing, but this is NOT the right thing to do and must NOT be done.. Do not install a larger fuse in a misguided attempt to correct the problem. To install a larger fuse would invite damage to the wiring and an electrical system fire..

Why does a 1996 ford ranger when you turn the key it pops the fuse that on the cab and under hood light and tail lights when head lights are on and how can it be fixed?
did yourecently put a towing package with lights on it or mess with an already existing system or some other wiring project lights a stereo something take it to a professional somebody who specializes in wiring
Fuses That "Blow" Repeatedly Without being able to "hands on" troubleshoot the circuit served by the repeatedly blowing fuse, none of us can identify the specific defect which is causing your problem . Therefore, the following generic answer can be applied to any electrical circuit , whethe…r in a vehicle, or in a building, or whether alternating current [AC] or direct current [DC]. Fuses [and Circuit Breakers] are safety devices designed and installed in electrical circuits TO PROTECT the conductors [wires] and other components from short circuit conditions and/or overload conditions which cause an extremely large flow of electrical current [measured in Amperes], which causes overheating of the conductors that results in damage to the insulation and the conductors. And in a worst case scenario, the probability of a FIRE which could destroy the vehicle, house, or other structure in which the circuit is located. When a fuse or Circuit Breaker [and replacement fuses, or repeatedly "tripping" Circuit Breakers] "blow," especially if it happens repeatedly, is an indication of an UNSAFE CONDITION in that circuit, usually a short . The fuse or circuit breaker is doing what it was designed, intended, and installed to do, that is to protect the conductors and components of the circuit which it serves. The proper "fix" for this issue is for a qualified technician, who knows what he or she is doing, to troubleshoot the involved circuit, find and identify the defect, and make proper repair [s], BEFORE replacing the fuse again [with the properly sized fuse or before resetting a circuit breaker]. Some ignorant few people will suggest installing a larger fuse or breaker to solve the problem, BUT that will only increase the hazard, not correct it. Do not follow "bad" advice by installing a larger fuse in a misguided attempt to correct the problem. To install an oversized fuse would almost guarantee damage to the wiring and the probability of an electrical system fire. (MORE)
What would cause your 99 s-10 blazers turn signals to not work fuses are good the signal light in the dash does not light up at all?
Okay, first turn the signal on. The look to see if the lights are blenking If the outside lights work then the little light in the dash is out. If the lights outside don't work you either wire problems or you need to replace the light socket. Don't forget to check the signal flasher relay.
Why should a Toyota 1996 t100 dash light go out all at once when you still have the tail lights working and the fuse is still good and all the dash bulbs are good?
"Dash" [Instrument Panel] Lights "Out" There are several possible causes for this condition, but ... Without doing a "hands on troubleshooting" of your vehicle no one can tell you the specific cause. The first and simplest cause is that the switch that controls the Instrument Panel lights …ON/OFF and brightness function has accidentally been turned off . Most vehicles have a switch to control the Instrument Panel lights. The location, type, and method of operation of that switch varies between makes, models, and year of manufacture of the vehicle. On some vehicles that switch is incorporated IN the headlight switch and is operated by rotating the knob of the headlight switch. Usually, full counterclockwise rotation of the headlight switch knob turns the Instrument Panel lights OFF . There is usually a "detent," [click/stop] at the off position. Rotating the knob to the right turns ON the lights at a very low brightness level, and continuing to rotate clockwise causes the lights to increase in brightness until at full clockwise rotation the lights will be at full brightness. On other vehicles, the Instrument Panel lights are controlled by a small "wheel" type of switch that has only a small part sticking out of a slot in the dash next to, or near, the headlight switch. This switch/brightness control is operated by rotating the small wheel. At one end of rotation will be the OFF position, and at the other end of the wheel rotation will be the full bright position. This tricky little switch is the most common cause when all Instument Panel lights are not ON. IF the setting of this switch is not the cause, and you are certain that the fuse [or fuses] for the Instrument Panel lights are "good," and the bulbs are good, then the next most likely causes include : . A wiring connector or plug between the switch and the Instrument Panel Circuit Board has become disconnected, . A wire has become broken or cut, . An "etch" conductor on the Instrument Panel Circuit Board has become broken. . The switch itself has become defective. Before tearing into the Instrument Panel to check out these latter possible causes, BE SURE that you have found and confirmed that the ON/OFF/brightness switch is ON and set to full brightness. This solution is a whole lot easier than any of the others. (MORE)
Why are the tail lights and license plate lights not working but the turn signals and brake lights and reverse lights are and you already replaced the bulbs and fuse?
Try replacing the headlight switch. Do the front parklights work and not the rear ones? If so check the harness to the rear of the vehicle for breakage.

Check your headlight switch. You might have a bad switch (fairly common). There are two circuits that go to the headlight switch. One wire feeds the headlights and another one that is fused feeds the taillights. Another wire comes off the headlight swtich and feeds the dash lights usually with a 5 a…mp fuse. If you lose the tail lights, the dash lights won't work either. (MORE)
