I have been told that there is a locking clip that holds the switch together. If the clip comes loose the dash lights and running lights won't work when you pull it out. To check if this is what is going on turn on the lights, very slightly push the switch in (like you are going to turn it off) you will find the dash light and the running lights will come back on. I'm not sure how to re-attach the clip that keeps coming loose.
If the lights in your lock buttons remain on after the truck is powered off, you may have a problem with your fuse. It the light remaining on could be because you have an electrical problem in your Ford Explorer, as well.
The problem probably wasn't the bulb. The problem is the fuse is blown and needs to be replaced and the problem will be resolved.
Check flasher most common problem
I just went through a big bill with my local mechic looking to fix my vent/heater/ac blower and lights that do not work, well when I said this problem occured after our battery had died and had been replaced, the mechanic told us that the computer must be reset by the dealer who I am calling now.
i had the same problem and i replaced the sensor/switch on the brake pedal itself and got mine to work.
Bring to a shop that has an ABS scanner to determine the problem I had this exact problem. The problem was that the wheel cylinder was leaking and causing the TCS and ABS lights to come on. I replaced the rear drums and pads and wheel cylinder. This solved the problem.
The dash lights on an Explorer are used to light the warning symbols and to illuminate the speedometer, gas gauge, and RPM gauge. These lights are controlled by fuses.
I had a 1986 cj that had the same problem. Couldn't find the problem until the dimmer switch on the floorboard went out. Replaced the switch and the gauge lights started to work.
Check the bulbs first. I had the same problem on a 94 Oldsmobile and it was the dimmer switch. Replaced that and fixed the problem Check the bulbs first. I had the same problem on a 94 Oldsmobile and it was the dimmer switch. Replaced that and fixed the problem
i to also have a 01 alero had the same propblem was told it was the speed sensor replaced it and no more lights i to also have a 01 alero had the same propblem was told it was the speed sensor replaced it and no more lights
Some Ford models had a external voltage regulator. If yours does, replace it.
Check the switch at the brake pedal, it is what makes the brakes come on, it may be malfunctioning.
I suspect multiple problems. The blank or intermittent odometer problem is a common problem in the 2002 Ford Explorer. The ABS and airbag lights are most likely a different problem than the odometer problem. For complete information on the intermittent odometer problem, see http://www.odometer-repair.com .
I just replaced my bulbs and I also have the same problem. I have a 99 Toyota Camry and replaced with 7000k Xenon bulbs? Have you found the solution yet?I had the same problem with my 94 Nissan Pathfinder, the turn signal switch needs to be replaced. I didn't find this until all my lights went out including my dashboard and the low beam was the only lights working.
Where is the fuse located that controls the inside dash lights on a 1993 Ford Explorer
You may need to have the "Body Control Module" replaced on your car. We have a 2002 Saturn L200 and the same symptoms occured. Dash lights were flashing, dome light flashing, couldn't shift out of park, etc. Dealer replaced the part under warranty (at the time) and we haven't had the problem since.
Yes any tail lights/head lights, pretty much everything but doors will fit on both ford explorer sports and 4dr explorers between the years 1998 and 2001
the only thing i could find is check for water in the lens
and that didnt fix the problem?
instrument panel lights for 1998 ford explorer the fues is good and when dimmer swtich is good
I had the same problem. What is happening is that the main circuit board for the instrument cluster is defective. The only way to fix the problem is to have the entire circuit board replaced.
The problem points to the directional/lights and hazard switch. The brake light wiring is part of that circuit.You can buy the switch after market it is about $70.00.
Check for bad ground
why does the dome lights stay on when the switch is turened off 2001 ford explorer super
