Yes, your tail lights will go out when your dash board lights go out.
could be the alternator is about to go out
Are you sure you didn't turn the dimmer down
If all the dash lights are out then there is two causes for this. The first is all the fuses have blown the other is the relay for the dashboard lights has went out.
Check for a loose ground wire - sounds like lights are backfeeding searching for ground
A likely cause is a faulty interior light dimming switch. This switch is directly connected to both the dash lights (for dimming), and the dome light (on/off).
Alternator is failing.
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 the dimmer setting for the dash lights. There should be a dial to adjust the brightness on the dash to the left of the steering wheel.
In most cars there is an dash light adjustment of some sort. My guess is yours is turned down too far so the lights don't show.
No. A bad battery is not causing your dash lights to go on and off. A different part is bad. Without equipment I have no idea what it is.
i own an 03 concord limited. my dash lights except for the miles and transmission positioning go off. the come on and stay on longer the colder it is what is wrong with this car
It does have both tail lights as well as dash lights
Typically your dash lights go out when you are driving with no tail/brake lights. So check those fusses to see if one is blown, this is a safety feature.
check your headlight switch or dash dimmer switch to be sure you do not have them turned on.
Be sure that the dash light brightness control switch is not turned off.
there is a bad ground somewhere
You may have a burnt out bulb that is causing your tail lights and dash board lights to not come on in your 1992 Bonneville. It can also be a blown fuse that is causing your problem.
turn the lights on and make sure the dimmer is not turned all the way down
Dead short to ground in either: Parking lights or sockets Tail lights or sockets Dash lights or sockets
dash display panel needs rebuild
where are the dash bolts located to replace burnt dash lights
Just guessing without having it in front of me but, I would suspect the roller dimmer switch on the dash. I know that if it is unplugged, all dash lights go off. So check the plug-in for a short.
turn the dimmer up.
