The dashlights are connected to the taillight circuit with the same fuse so that when your tail lights go out, the dash lights will too and you will know so you won't ride around with no tail lights. Replace the fuse.
I did not find this to be a solution for my problem - fuses were not the issue. Following is my solution:
I had the lights on my dash and tail lights go out on my 1995 Grand Am 3.1 V6. After much investigation, it ended up being that the turn signal switch had gone bad. I got mine at Autozone - $79.99 for one with cruise, $69.99 for one without. SW860 for the non-cruise, SW859 for the cruise version. It is sometimes referred to as a multifunction switch - however, when I called and asked about that, it seemed as though the parts are NOT the same (MFS was much more expensive). Make sure you specify turn signal switch (that also controls the tail lights, headlights, etc).
In order to replace it, you need to remove the cover around the steering column - we couldn't get the lower part of the cover off and subsequently also had to pull the steering wheel (which also meant disabling the air bag), then remove the bad turn signal switch (which also controls the headlights, parking lights, tail lights, etc), pop in a new one, put everything back together (re-enabling the airbag) and then you can enjoy a life of dash lights and tail lights once again.
check the fuses - there is no fuse for the headlights.
The fuse probably blew that controls the dashboard lights.
You need to replace your head light switchRutifo
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.
First check your fuses if none are blown then check the switch.
Headlights not working
I own a 2005 jeep Cherokee my headlights on the passenger side is not working changed the bulbs & they are still not working.
Bad switch? Bad relay/ Breaker tripped?
Check fuses Check bulbs
Had the same problem. Found it to be a bad ground wire for the headlights. There are two ground wires for the headlights, both are directly below the battery. You can see one of them if you remove the drivers side headlight. It is right behind the radiator hose. The other is a few inches from that one.
mY hONDA crv CRUISE CONTROL WAS WORKING UNTIL NOW EVEN WHEN HEADLIGHTS WERE ON. bUT IT STOPPED WORKING EVEN THOUGH HEADLIGHTS ARE ON OR NOT.........PLEASE HELP
Make sure fuse is installed and not loose - same fuse controls parking/tail and dash lights
The headlights and the tail lights may not be working on the 1981 El Camino because of a mechanical breakdown.
if the radio is not working in a 2007 Pontiac g6 sdn what is the problem
my headlights and dash lights stopped working on my 2007 yamati strada RX150
i was driving in the rain last night my headlights and wipers quit working and i stop the car for 15 minutes and they starting working again and they are still working what could have cause this my car is 2002 cavalier
You contradict yourself. If your headlights are staying on during the day, then your DRL are working. What is your problem?
If just one headlight quit working it probably burned out. If both headlights quit working at the same time the fuse probably blew.
go to a mechaniac and find out what is wrong with your headlights.
both my lowbeam headlights aren't working although high beam and parking lights do. probably aloose connection. any ideas how i can fix it sal
It's possible the bulbs have burned out. If you've checked this, and they're still not working, it could be a wiring issue, and you may have to track it down. It could also be a fuse, but doubtful since I believe most cars have the lighting system all on the same fuse.
Stop the car in a safe place at night. Put the car into neutral and apply the handbrake. Switch on the headlights. Get out of the car and look to see that the headlights are working.
The headlights on a Jaguar my not work if the bulb or fuse is defective. Alternatively the wiring can be damaged or the switch my have stopped working.
