Why would park and tail and license and dash lights not work while head and signal do after bare wires on lic lights touched but now fixed all fuses ARE good on 98 Ford Ranger?
look for more fuses, tail and turn are ALWAYS at least two fuses. fix damage possibly you blew the switch if you had too large a fuse in during the "repair" process. Relentless

This can be used for either the back-up lights or the brake lights. There are a couple of ways to track this down. Of course, make sureyour fuse and bulbs are in good conditio…n. Disconnect the wiring tothe switch. Measure the feed wire and make sure you have 12 volts.Note: Make sure the key is turned to the RUN position so you havejuice to the wire. If there is no voltage, trace the wire back tothe fuse and find out why! If you have 12 volts, connect a jumperwire of the correct gauge to jumper the connector. If the lightscome on, it looks like a bad switch. Put the car in reverse and use an ohm meter to check the resistancein the switch. It should be minimal. If not, replace the switch. If everything looks good back to the bulbs. Go to the next step. Disconnect the two bulbs and, put the car in reverse to engage thelights. Note: Try not to do this with the car running. If youinsist, have a buddy with a strong, steady foot and chock thetires. Someone needs to be in the back measuring the power! Measure the voltage at the socket. It should be about 12 volts. Ifit isn't you need to trace the wires back to the switch. If you see12 volts, install one of the bulbs and remeasure the voltage. Itmay be that when there is no load on the circuit, everything looksfine. When you put a load on the system and the voltage drops, youhave have a bad connection somewhere. Check your ground connectionson the lights and check the connector at the switch. 2001 Mazda 626: On a 2001 Mazda 626 (and I suspect many other), there is a relay inthe fuse box under the hood. It is labelled the TNS relay. If yourhorn or headlights still work, swap the relays between one of themand the TNS relay. If, after making the swap, your lights now workand your horn does not, you have found the culprit. Unfortunately,neither Advance Auto, Autozone, O'Reilly, or Carquest stocks thisrelay. Some can order it - $19 and change at Carquest.

If you grounded a bare wire while installing speakers in a 1994 Dodge Ram and now the interior lights and radio don't work but the fuses are all good what could be wrong?
Answer The fuse for the radio's constant power and the domelight might be located under the hood in the fuse panel there. Also the same fuse should power the cigar lighter. … Hey theres also another place that may have gone wrong, if you have power seats under the driver side, the plug is either corroded or you must put a jumper wire from the redwire with a light blue stripe to the pink wire, this will power up the radio, the interior lights and the power mirrors. I chased this down for 5 hrs to figure it out. good luck.
Why would the bare wires going to license plate lights touch each other and spark and now the parking and tail lights instru lights are all out on a 1998 Ford Ranger but all fuses and bulbs are OK?

What would cause a 1996 Monte Carlo ls to not have parking lights or dash lights but the brake lights and turn signals work bulbs and fuses are good?
Check your fuses again because the parking lights and dash lights often share the same fuse; that is why they both quit. Answer Parking light fuse is not in the fuse block …that's on the right side of the dash - its in the fuse block mounted to the drivers wheel well in the engine compartment. Check the fuze block under the hood on drivers sidr near washer tank fuze block in bad spot gets corrosion and causes the power to be stoped at that point , unhook block and clean connections.
Answer . \nCheck the fuse again; tailights and dash lights are fused together on most vehicles. You need to pull fuse and test with a circuit tester and test both sides wh…ere the fuse plugs in.

What needs to be checked when your tail lights as well as your dash lights and brake lights the headlight switch has been changed and the fuses and bulbs are all good in a 98 Ford Contour?
I ha dthis very same problem and couldn't find anything. I replaced the headlight switch twice and while I was trying it the second time I turned the switch on and off and it …worked!? What I discovered is that it wasnt the switch itself but the plug that goes into the switch. It wasn't making a good connection or plugging in tight anymore therefore not working. I wasnt in any mood to go buy the wiring harness for that and route it through as far as it goes and it just looked like a pain because I couldn't see where all the wires went without tearing the dash apart so I turned the wires onto the switch where it worked or made contact. I then used duct tape to hold it in place to make the connection and I haven't had trouble with it in more then 5 years now.

Headlites work but no tail litess or dash lites so i changed all the fuses found out both license plate lites are corroded blown and removed and all parking lights and dash lights dont work Ideas?
Check your headlight switch. You might have a bad switch (fairly common). There are two circuits that go to the headlight switch. One wire feeds the headlights and another one… that is fused feeds the taillights. Another wire comes off the headlight swtich and feeds the dash lights usually with a 5 amp fuse. If you lose the tail lights, the dash lights won't work either.
