if the lights inside your van dont turn on as well that means your alternator fuse is blown, headlights and taillights will work but the car wont start until you replace the fuse. fuse is located in the engine bay at the front area by the radiator.
"Stuck" brake lights indicate that the brake light switch on the brake pedal is broken. It should be replaced.
You probably need the original key fob for the car. This is regardless if you have an alarm for the car. I've changed the battery twice in the last five years for my 97 Villager and each time I've had to "reset" the "alarm" via the key fob. The last time, I had to uncable the battery twice because it would not "reset" using the key fob before finally accepting the "unlock/disarm" from the key fob.
Should be the same circuit for parking/tail/dash lights
dash lights don't work, but the fues is good.
The instrument cluster needs to be removed to get at the bulbs.
If the brake lights stay on that probably means the switch on the brake pedal that activates them is defective.
To replace lamps the cluster must be removed.
Two plastic pads on the brake pedal which press on two switches on a bracket are missing. Meaning the switches never get pressed and the brake lights stay on and run down the battery. See a dealer to put new plastic "buttons" in the pedal.
This is usually cause by a stuck brake light switch on the brake pedal. Replace it.
I figured it out myself...it was the inhibitor relay got wet.
That is in the fuse panel inside the car. Marked I/P illum (instrument panel illumination)
Brake light switch needs adjusting or replacing. It is too sensitive.
Bulbs burned out? Bad switch in multifunction lever? Bad Hi-Beam relay?
In the fuse box under the dash. The one you are looking for is most likely called "instrument lights".
ABS was an option on Villagers. If you have an ABS light that lights up when you turn the key on the dash, you have it. If not, you don't.
See page 247 your owners manual- it's f#21. Or download it below.
why would the lights and the horn stay on all the time just started when the battery was changed
I have what looks like a battery light on my dashboard. What does this mean?
you may have wires crossed if some one has installed a new radio system recentley My Villager did this a couple of years ago. After countless hours in the shop it ended up being the rear taillight. The lead contacts on the bulbs were touching one another and shorting the system.
The entire instrument cluster must be remove to replace lamps. If equiped with Electronic cluster, it might be better to take it to the dealer.
The radio lights are supposed to come on when you turn on your headlights and adjust with the rest of your dashboard lights. I had this problem when I purchased my 1995 Mercury Villager back in 1997 with a mere 33k miles on the odometer. I believe the mechanic replaced the display panel under warranty. I have not had a problem since. I will look for that work authorization and get back to you if it was something different. I am not sure If your problem is the same but it is worth exploring replacing the display panel. Good Luck
Needs a new battery.
my friend changed the battery in his 05 outback and now all the dash lights are on and the car wont go into gear. what happened?
Two different switches. The combination switch on the column is most likely the culprit. This may be fuses. The turn signals and hazard lights are fed by separate circuits.
Answer 92 Camry lightsThere's a fuse in the box on the drivers side inner fender by the battery.
