check for a bad fuse in the fuse panel.
Generally, dash lights and tail lights are on the same fuse so that if the tail fuse blows you'll know. When the tail light was "smashed", it shorted out the circuit and blew the fuse. You need to fix the tail light before you can get the dash lights to work.
The dash light fuse gets its power from the tail light fuse. If the tail light fuse blows, you won't have any dash lights either.
On most American cars, the dash fuse feeds off the tail light fuse. The tail light fuse is typically 20 amps and the dash fuse feeds off from it and is usually 5 amps. If the tail light fuse blows, you loose the dash lights.
Should be the same fuse for parking light/tail lights Should be the same fuse for parking light/tail lights Should be the same fuse for parking light/tail lights Should be the same fuse for parking light/tail lights
It does have both tail lights as well as dash lights
It is generally a small fuse about 5 amps. It typically feeds off the tail light fuse and goes to the dash dimmer switch. If the tail light fuse is blown, you won't get dash lights either.
The dash lights and the tail lights are on the same fuse. In all probability, you have a short circuit in the tail light wiring.
Probably the Tail light fuse is blown. You also lose dash lights when this fuse blows also.
No the dash lights should be with your parking lights.comment2: They are on separate circuits. Power usually goes from the "taillight fuse" to a small 5 amp dash light fuse and then to the dash dimmer wheel or knob. Then it feeds the dash lights. A blown tail light fuse makes the dash lights go out also. A blown dash fuse only affects the dash lights.
Check your tail lights to see if they are working. Some car makers tie the dash lights to the tail lights as a way to warn you the tail lights are out. Alternately, your head light control dimmer has gone bad.
A short in the tail light circuit. Brake and turn are on another circuit. Dash light power is fed from the tail light fuse to the dimmer switch and on to the dash lights. Look for a short in the tail light wiring circuit. Also check the license plate light for a short as it is on the tail light circuit also. Had a car with blown fuse, traced the circuit for tail lights and found nothing. Jumped the fuse and burned out the wiring to the tail lights. Come to find out, the short was in the license plate light. Also a bad headlight switch can cause this. Both tail light circuit and headlight circuit go through the switch. Contacts for the tail lights may be bad (defective switch common).
you have a wiring problem with either the dash lights, the headlight switch, the tail lights or the front clearance lights. If you've had an accident that has caused damage to any of those areas, check that first.
I have that same problem with a 2001 tacoma no power rear tail lights brake light works and nothing for dash lights i need answers i am stumped Any real answers to this please???
If you are talking about the dash lights , check your tail light fuse . they are on the same curcuit
Yes, your tail lights will go out when your dash board lights go out.
Man vehicles have the dash lights and tail lights wired through the same fuse. Check your fuse box for the dash or tail light fuse. Something has most likely caused it to blow.
Check your tail lights they are probably out also. Most domestic cars power the dash lights off of the tail light circuit so you will know when the tail light fuse blows. Check the tail light fuse.
my Oldsmobile alero did the same thing. It turned out to be as simple as a blown bulb in my tail light.
your fuse is blown. car manufacturerers make the dash lights go off when the tail light fuse blows so you know it is blown.
Tail light fuse is blown. It also feeds the 5 amp dash light fuse. Also check for shorts causing the fuse to blow including the license plate light.
I have a 1991 Chevy surburan and it has no tail lights and no dash lights, all fuses are good
If you installed a trailer light set up you should go back and verify the connection or remove it to see it the problem goes away. I have had the same problem with other vehicles and yes the dash light are tied in with the tail lights.
Check your fuse. Usually the manufacturer has the dash lights and the tail lights on the same circuit.
Dash lights and tail lights are on the same fuse.
Inside trunk, remove thumb screw to fold back paneling near tail lights. Then remove three thumbscrews and the whole tail light assembly can be moved out to change light bulbs.
