Dash and parking lights don't work?


The other day I was driving home at night my dashboard lights went out and smelled like burnt. So when I check the back of the cluster the bulbs seemed to burn out but does any one know why? Then my friend told me that only my brake lights work only when I am braking that the parking lights don't work as well? Checked all the fuses and they are all good . Any Ideas?

Check your grounds and all wiring leading to it. A wire could have rubbed and now it's causing a short

Your dash light are out as a warning to let you know your tail lights are out. That been my experience before, (though it hasn't happened in the toy). Dash and tail lights are on same fuse. Check fuses and wires for taillights. GL

So which one do you think is the flasher?I would pull the other one and swap it out.Is it the black one wraped in tape?It might just say tail relay on it under the tape.But you can still jump it to mske sure it gets power from the fuse back.You brakes work right?if so pull the brake or stop fuse take a short about 3-4" wire peel back both ends wrap ane side of the brake fuse dont matter which and pull the tail fuse and do the same.Plug it back in and check.Keep in mind this will send constant power to them and your switch wont work to turn it off.

Had this problem before, it was a round silver relay on the fuse panel in the kicker floor panel. "Tail lamp relay"

I think I finally found my tail relay just started looking for it today and the wires going to the relay look like they melted since the wires are diformed but I am going to check for voltage and going to see if I can fix it
