the bulbs themselves...and or the dimmer/light switch....read up on bulb replacement, then since that's the cheapest, change any burnt bulbs and see if any other bulbs are loose in their sockets...good luck..
Everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and a professional shop manual should be available at your local library for diagnostic procedures etc, just make copies of the right pages, as they are usually REFERENCE only...read up and good luck :)
Probably a loose wire or a short in the wiring that powers the dashboard lights. Also check the fuses and the wiring to and from them.
short somewhere in the wiring or bulbs might be loose
Probably a loose connection in the wiring or the bulb socket.
Most probably, a loose wiring connection.
The tail lights are on a separate wiring than the blinker/brake lights. Look for a blown fuse or a broken/loose wire.
Could be a wiring problem. Could also be loose connections, which I doubt, but hey.. anything's possible, right? I'm voting for wiring.
Cracked wiring in the harness. But first make sure fuses are not loose in their holders.
The fuel sending unit is sticking, or the wiring to the gauge is loose. These are the two most common causes of an erratic gauge.
Check to see if you have a blown fuse. This is often the case. Also you may try pulling the rear lights out and inspecting them for any damage or loose wiring.

If the headlights on the 2004 GMC Envoy are not working, there could be a loose connection somewhere. If all of the other lights are working, it is most likely not a fuse that has blown. Double check the wiring to see if there is a loose connection.
The switch for your lights is probably going bad or is dirty, you may also have a loose wire or connector. Find some way to spray WD40 inside the dash dimmer switch may help a lot.
Assuming that you have checked the fuses, look for a loose connection in the wiring harness. I believe that there is a connector in the trunk area that may have come loose.
I found this on my 1997 Silverado and found the connection from the wiring harness to the back OS the switch itself was loose, I could wigle it arouns and make the lights come back on.
Possibly defective alternator, or loose or corroded wiring. Drive to an auto parts store and have them check the charging system. Most will do this free of charge.Possibly defective alternator, or loose or corroded wiring. Drive to an auto parts store and have them check the charging system. Most will do this free of charge.
There has been a power failure to these lights. Check for loose wiring at the battery, a bad fuseable link, or blown fuse to start the troubleshooting process.
Either the switch is bad and needs to be replaced, or the wiring connection to it has become loose. Check for loose wiring first, before throwing money at it.
Im pretty sure you are having a loose ground wire somewhere in the engine bay
Check for a loose ground wire - sounds like lights are backfeeding searching for ground
Sounds like a blown fuse in the dash, no biggie, just take it in and it should be a quick fix Wiring harness has come loose, blown bulbs, or bad wire.
Check wiring for loose connections but DO NOT electrocute yourself! Best take it to a mechanic and stump up the cash unless you know about car wiring, which you seemingly do not.
Check for loose wiring at the light itself and also at the light switch. There can also be a loose wire anywhere in the circuit supplying power to that light switch. Start at the light itself and work backwards in the circuit until you find the loose wire.
Flickering lights, on a Cadillac STS, is usually a sign of a loose wire. When all of the lights flicker, it is an indication of a loose battery ground cable.
Answer- just replaced headlight switch on 1993 merc.grd.marq. took care of no tailights, no dash lights.you have a bad ignition switchOR, the wiring behind the headlight switch assembly might be bad, the harness can have warped or cracked and/or the wires may have come loose or otherwise lost their connection. Inspecting the wiring for the headlight switch would be the first step if it only occurs when you want the headlights or parking lights on, and the headlamps work but not the gauge cluster lights nor the tail lights, BUT, the brake lights still work.
