Ok heres the deal, my dash lights and my tail lights dont work.. I checked the fuses, wires, connections, I replaced the bulbs in the cluster i even tried a different gauge cluster. i was driving one day and noticed my driver side head light didnt work.. then went to the fair. came back to drive home and the head light worked but the dash lights didnt.. then got pulled over and the cop told me my tails dont work just the break lights.. i didnt mess with any of the wires other then putting a cd player in it when i first got it and its worked since then.. so i need help trouble shooting.. if anyone has a idea please let me know.. I want to have it fixed before the meet. Please and Thank you my cell is 715 771 0327 for faster help I dont get good enough service to talk so text plz Very Happy

Headlight switch, bad/loose ground, wiring harness rubbed through...

I'd second this. I've seen so many kids come through my work after chopping their harnesses, and mulleting up their radio install and wonder why their dash and tail lights no longer work.

Yea i rechecked all the stereo wires.. but its all uncut factory harness.

600sx, i thought it could be the switch too (still do) because my blinkers have never worked on this car and maybe its just getting worse. how should i test the switch?

and kouki no the s14 does not have the tcu box.

Thanks for the help guys.

Well, if your blinkers don't work, I would definitely look at the headlights switch or the wiring in the steering column.

To test: Find a wiring diagram and make sure you have power going into the switches, and then turn the switch on and see if the output wires send the power out to the headlights/dash lights/turn signals. Use either a test light or a multi-meter. If all the fuses and wiring/bulbs at the lights are good, this is the next logical step in my mind.

No splicing. Just use the end/connectors. Make sure wires are not shorting/touching other wires or grounding when they're not supposed to.




EDIT: Or if wires are even connected at all, ie. cracked/broken and not touching.

Sorry for not specifying. I wasn't sure what method you were using.

For the test light, the clip goes to ground somewhere and the probe needs to touch a positive wire. If there is current going through, the light should light up.

Tails work! But blinkers don't and my blinker relay seems to be missing. Would my hazards still work if the blinker relay was junk or missing?
