POSSIBILITIES ARE; VOLTAGE REGULATOR OR BARE OR DISCONNECTED GROUND WIRE TO THE STARTER. WATER AND SNOW WILL CAUSE THESE BARE SPOTS TO SHORT THE CURRENT TO GROUND OR ELSWHERE. I WOULD SUGGEST GETTING A WIRING SCHEMATIC FROM THE LOCAL LIBRARY OR PURCHASE A CHILTONS BOOK. WIRING PROBLEMS CAN BE SIMPLE OR UNTRACEABLE AT TIMES. I KNOW SOME PEOPLE THAT HAVE NEVER SOLVED A TAIL LIGHT SHORTING OUT. THE MANUAL AND SCHEMATIC WILL HELP YOU NARROW DOWN THE PROBLEM. GOOD LUCK!
How's your battery, is the car starting properly. Maybe the battery or alternator.
Take the negative battery terminal off for 15 minutes.
Have you tested the battery to see if it has power in it? If it has have you made sure the contacts are good? If they are is there a fuse that has blown.
A Low battery could cause this - try getting a jump from someone,when it is cold the battery will, if they are low sometimes, not have the cranking power needed to turn over a cold engine. To test if your battery is low turn on your lights if the lights are dim then it is your battery.
I dont have an answer but I am having the same problem. My car wouldn't start but when I turned the key, the lights (hazard and dash lights) started blinking. I think it's a warning that the battery is not completely connected. We tightened the clamps (which were very loose) and it stopped.
check the fuse for the tail lights, usually they are inter-connected.
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?
Either the brake light switch or on brake pedal there is a button that pushes the switch and it fell out.
It is the solenoid located by the shifter handle change it !!
if you leave any lights on in the car you may cause you a flat battery. if you leave any lights on in the car you may cause you a flat battery.
Sounds like a connection problem from the battery to the car. Easiest way to find out is to get a jump start from another car, if it works then it's the battery, if not then is either the battery cable or an alarm/immobiliser that is still armed.
The lights will be dim and last only a few minutes then the battery will be very dead.
you would have dimming lights lack of electrical functions and after the voltage of the battery drops past a certain point your vehicle would stop running
The magnatron is not recharging the battery or the lights are drawing too much power to allow the battery to recharge. The best thing you can do is when you are done riding, turn the lights off and allow the machine to run for a while to recharge that battery.
Fuse should be marked and also control parking and tail lights
Check headlights and dashboard lights first. If no/minimal power for the lights then replace battery.
Well, that depends on whether you still have the lights and blinkers, ect. If there are not lights, blinkers, brake lights, or horn, then you do not need a battery to run this bike. If you do have these items, then you would need a battery
When your lights are on and your engine is not running you are taking the power for your car lights directly from your battery. If you leave them on long enough, you will run down your battery and your car will not start. Then you will need a jump.
Pressing the button on an iBook's battery will illuminate a string of lights; the number of lights illuminated indicates how much charge is left in the battery.
Yes, a bad starter or starter solenoid can be the reason for a car not starting but all the lights coming on. It could be a battery going bad or being drained.
Hazard Light versus Dead BatteryNO, IF the battery is truly dead, then the hazard lights will not work.However, if there is some power left in the battery, even though the voltage may be extremely low, then the hazard lights maycontinue to work.
You will have to buy battery powered Christmas lights.
No the tail lights are in the fuse box on the drivers side the dash lights are just bulbs you have to replace when they burn out.
I have a 99 Ford Escort SE and mine burned out also, my husband removed the cover at the shifter and there was a screw underneath that will remove and allow you to get down in there and replace the bulb. hope it helps
Try cleaning the battery connectors, and then apply die-electirc grease. Probably not making good contact. This could be two separate problems. Dash and interior lights can be a bad fuse. Second, if the starter cranks over with a new battery, check your electronic fuel pump, and or your kill switch.
