Re: Once again a problem an needs fixed fast

I would check the fuse first. It would be very odd (although not impossible) for all of your running lights to go out at one. I'd put money on the fuse. Just my .02, had this problem last year sometime, although mine wasn't exactly like your issue, whatevs. That's what I would do if it were me.

IIRC its labeled as the 'taillight' fuse on your diagram under the dash. just follow the diagram, and pull the fuse. Try replacing it even if it doesn't look blown. IIRC its a 10amp, but its been a long while since I changed it.

edit:


its a 15a.

Re: Once again a problem an needs fixed fast

Um... I would look in the owners manual or on the fuse panel for a "taillamp" or something similar. Should be kinda self explanatory.

:EDIT: above poster posted as I was typing lol.

Re: Once again a problem an needs fixed fast

I don't want to be the devils advocate, or whatever you call it, but a fuse is not a "problem" part.

Fuses protect the circuit, from amps that are too high. So if something is causing your amps to spike in that circuit, the fuse is only gonna blow again.


I'd buy the fuse, replace it, and see what happens. If it pops again, then you'll need to check for shorts and the like.

Re: Once again a problem an needs fixed fast

+1 Havikprelude, fuses dont blow for no reason. You done any work on the electrical system, esp. near the lines for the lights or by the selector on the steering wheel assy
