What could be the problem if the tail lights and dashboard lights are not working your headlights are hooked up on a separate switch?

First check your fuses if none are blown then check the switch.

You contradict yourself. If your headlights are staying on during the day, then your DRL are working. What is your problem?

Some cars have a knob for the headlights. If this knob is turned left or right when pulled out, it changes the brightness of the dashboard lights from off to full brightness.

The headlights in the Ford F150 may have stopped working due to a bad fuse or bulb. Check these and if it doesn't fix the problem visit a mechanic.

You can try to knock on the dashboard area around the speedometer. Or you could resolder the PCB on the backside of your speedo.

I own a 2005 jeep Cherokee my headlights on the passenger side is not working changed the bulbs & they are still not working.

It's possible that the fact that it's light or dark has nothing to do with your headlight working or not working. Look into other causes of the problem: Such as: Is is wet outside?, How about overheating of the components surrounding your headlights?

Sounds like an electrical problem, check your battery, alternator, and fuse box, and light wiring.

The headlights of a Ford Windstar may have problems going on if they are burnt out or if there is a wiring problem. Blowing a headlight fuse will also lead to both lights not working.

i know this will sound silly but first make sure the headlights themselves are not blown.you would be surprised how many Kia's come into my shop with headlights not working and all the headlights are blown. after that get a volt meter and disconnect the light and test to see if you have power , remember the dimmer switches are famous for cold solder joints and will also cause this problem.

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.

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.

Diagnose them, determine the cause of the problem, and fix it. Email me if you'd like (the address is in my profile page) and maybe I can help you figure this out.

Either traction control is turned off manually or there is a problem with the system & it's not working properly.

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.

The headlights and the tail lights may not be working on the 1981 El Camino because of a mechanical breakdown.

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.
