Hello i have an electrical problem with my 1996 Chevrolet 1500. When you turn on the right turn signal all of the lights (including the dash) will pulse with the signal. When you turn on the park lights the right turn signal indicator automatically turns on and stays on, and when you actually turn the signal to the right its makes a buzzing sound. The left turn signal goes fast. The only problem that i can find is that the front peanut marker is out. I have checked all of the grounds and th

My 1999 cougar has issues.All lights,dash lights,headlights pulse dim to bright. After driving the car it sometimes will not turn over, it is not even getting power to the starter solenoid when it does this. This problem seems to resolve itself after 15 to 20 minutes, although sometimes will not turn over for days. This problem also causes the motor to surge slightly. Obviously its electrical,but there are no repair manuals available for this vehicle, has anyone else experienced a problem like t

Brake problem. There hasn't been nor have ever had any lights come on the dash for brakes/ABS. Pads and rotors look fine. When I apply the brakes I do not get that ABS pulsing feeling. But almost when stopped the pedal gets spongy, and it feels like for a moment there are no brakes. One pump and there back to nornmal. I replace the master cylinder, wasted $150., because that did not solve the problem. I've ask a few people and have gotten multiple answers. Anything from sticky calipers

I have a 2000 Dodge Durango I bought about 4 hours ago. The tail lights do not work but the brake light and turn signals do. Also the dash lights do not work. The dash lights came on when I hit the brake but as soon as I let off the brakes the dash lights went out, now the dash lights don't work at all.


The odds are the one fuse is blown for the dash and the tail lights. And the wrong bulb may have been put in for the brake light. The brake light is feeding back into the tail light circuit causing the fuse to blown out. \015\012\015\012\ ... 2000 Dodge Durango

You have a dead short in the wiring harness. Easiest way to diagnose is remove tail/parking bulbs and systematically replace them one at a time. When you replace them, not buy new ones just unplug them, your problem circuit will be when the lamps go ... 1995 Pontiac Bonneville

My daughters 2002 Tahoe has no brake lights. Bulbs are good checked the fuse under the hood=good, also checked the fuse under the back seat labeled brake, it was good also. Now the ABS light and hand brake dash warning lights are on. My guess is pulling the fuse under the back seat tripped a code for the warning dash lights. So how do I reset the dash warning lights? By the way, still no brake lights...turn, direction, and running lights are good. Also the brake light over the back window

94 nissan truck doesn't have running lights, or dash lights. I hard wired the lights with a lead that ran directly from the positive terminal on the battery to the positive lead in to the bulb so I could at least be legal, and as soon as it got positive juice, on came my running lights and so did my dash lights! What would cause this. I have break lights and head lights, but without the direct current no dash or rear running lights.


If by running current as you said fixes the problem. Then you have to check the head light swich and see if it is sending current out on all the needed wires. If it is you have a break in the wires some where. But for it to act the way you say the h ... Nissan Hardbody

I had someone put a car stereo in my 97 Chevymalibu and when they did apparently cut a brown wire under my dash and now overtime I turn my headlights on my dash lights and P R N D screen goes out but I still have tail lights so what is the brown wire in my Mali)u dash , where does it goto and from - is to for my dash light? And now there is also a green wire with a white line that I can't find what it how to either- what does it go to in my.dash is it the wire thy runs to my dash lights? Please


The brown wire is the wire that goes to the dash lights and it is probably grounding out so every time you turn on your lights that will cause them to go out and it will probably blow a fuse.\012\012go to ... 1997 Chevrolet Malibu
