THE DASH LIGHTS ARE USUALLY CONTROLLED BY A SMALL THUMB WHEEL NEAR THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH ON THE DASH. THAT IS A RHEOSTAT, THAT MAKES THE DASH LIGHTS BRIGHT & DIM. REPLACE OR BYPASS IT.

    I MISREAD YOUR QUESTION. THERE IS A TAIL LIGHT RELAY IN JUNCTION BOX {FUSEBOX } # 1, & FUSE LINKS IN JUNCTION BOX #2. TEST ALL FUSELINKS & FUSES WITH A TESTER, SWAP THE RELAY WITH ANOTHER RELAY OF THE SAME NUMBER IN YOUR CAR.

Have a 1991 Toyota 4Runner. The instrument cluster lighting has stopped working. The fuses relating to the cluster seem to be good. The gauges and everything relating to those fuses seem to be working....


check this fuse too..
The dash illumination lights run off of the TAIL fuse. Wierd I know!!
also a bad dimmer switch could very well be the culprit.

Hi i have an 1986 toyota 4runner the dash lights and running lights stopped working... fuse is blown and checked wires in the tail lights, marker lights and behind the dash with no luck... is there a...


The tail and marker lights and Instrument lights are on the same circuit so both will go out if the fuse for this circuit blows. If fuse continues to fail, check the tail light or marker globes, including the globes for the number plate, for a globe that may have an internal short causing the fault and replace as necessary. As you have already checked the wiring near the light fittings for any chafed wires that could be shorting to the body causing the fault, then a closer inspection of the wires inside all the light assemblies for any shorts may be needed.

It could also be that the instrument dimmer control has failed and is causing the fault. The electronic bits inside the dimmer control for these lights sometimes go faulty. Try disconnecting the connecting plug on the rear of the dimmer control and checking if fuse still blows. If fuse continues to fail, then the fault in the tail and marker lights circuit.

Remove all the tail, number plate and running light globes from the light assemblies and leave the instrument dimmer control disconnected and check if fuse still blows.

Disconnect the plug near each of the light assemblies to see if any of the individual assemblies is causing the fault. With all light assemblies disconnected and fuse continues to fail, then the fault must be in the main wiring loom some where.

If you have a Multimeter, it could be used to determine which light assembly has a fault between the lamp supply and earth connection.

My tail running lights dont work and i checked the fuses how do i fix it


you say you checked the fuse so I ASSUME its good? and getting power? there is a Tail Light Relay. If the relay is good, then that fuse (tail light) will have power. If it does not, then check the relay, maybe rap on it. The relay is round up under the dash, left kick panel area. just below where the tail light fuse is.

I suspect a fuse blew. My dash lights and tail lights are out. Does that sound like a fuse problem? If so...where is the fuse box? What type of fuse is needed?


This sounds more like a dimmer switch problem but could be a fuse they are located
drivers side kick panel under the dash. I think they were mini fuses for this vehicle.
