1998 dodge neon speedo quit working if you hit the dashboard sometimes it will work for a few minutes also fuel gauge went up and down and quit working but now it is back working?

This is a problem with some Neons. There is a block of wires (controller/bus) where most of the dashboard wiring connects. This "block" of wiring overheats and shorts out. It is not an uncommon problem with Neons. Some times lifting the dashboard will "unshort" the block. You may want to try to put a heat sync on it or try some other cooling method ASAP as this problem tends to get worse as time goes on.

Why wont headlights on 1997 Nissan pickup not come on. I replaced with new headlights. All other lights working OK. Checked headlights fuses in box all ok?

I just had the same problem in my '97 Nissan pickup. Both headlights stopped working at the same time. I went through some hoops, including trying a new headlight switch, but it turned out to be some corrosion in the plug for the fusible link that bolts onto the positive terminal of the battery. I cleaned that out and it is working fine again.

What could cause the headlights to go on but not up on a 1985 Celica GTS if the motors are working?

If the motors are working, then there has to be a problem between the motors and the lights. If they are only "working" though if you bench test them, and they don't actually do anything when you turn on the lights, then there must be an electrical problem such as a break in a wire or a bad ground to the motors.

Brake lights and turn signals are on a separate circuit from the tail lights. Tail lights are on the same circuit with the dashboard lights. If the dashboard lights aren't working either, check the fuse. If they ARE working, check the headlight switch.
