Parking light fuse

I have an 03 nissan sentra spec-v and recently the dash board lights went out and so did my tail lights. now the head lights still turn but nothing else will. someone told me its in the fuse box in the dash but i cudnt find any fuses labeled parking light fuse. so im wondering what to do next.

P.S. a #20 fuse in the box under the hood went out after i replaced it. what is that one for?

It should be fuse #36 (10 amp) in the box under dash. Its marked illum. lights. If it was blown and it blows again after you replace it you have a short somewhere in the circuit. P.S. your owners manual should give you fuse locations.

MY Park lights and dash board wont come on


Check your fuses first, park lights, I think. Pull the light switch to first click and check if your front park lights are on. If no lights are on, the headlight switch is probably bad. If the fronts work, but no tail lights or dash lights, the problem is probably a wiring problem under the dash. The same wire to the rear tail lights is usually with a splice to the dash illumination lights.

Is there a fuseable link for parking & dash lights if so where is it located


No, not just for those. There should be a fuse for the tail lights in the instrument panel fuse box. The illumination lights for the dash and the park lights are from the headlight switch, so maybe you have a bad switch. Find the fuse for the tails, pull it out, and check the terminals for power with the park light switch on. One of the two terminals where fuse plugs in should have power-it should light up a test light or show voltage on a meter. If no power on either terminal, probably the headlight switch is bad.

Lights are out on dash board and driver side tail light. How do I fix this?


You may be looking at a fuse issue, possibly a blown one for the dash lights. As far as the tail light on the drivers side, I would check the bulb. They have two elements in the bulb, one for the tail light and the other is for the brake light. So one may be intact, do not let that fool you.

Where is the fuse for dash lights?


Right side of engine compartment is a fuse box. It is a 15 amp mini fuse that is marked tail lights. I cant for the life of me figure out why they put the dash board, head light on alarm, and tail lights on the same fuse

Dashboard and tail lights out on 97" Nissan Sentra


I took my pathfinder to U-HAUL and asked them to check the towing lights. There was a pinched wire by my tail light and they cut it and changed it out for me, it was $5. I am so glad that I didnt take it to Nissan. My second step was going to be getting a new dimmer switch..but the guy who worked on my car said that wouldnt be the problem. He also told me that replacing a fuse that kept blowing out was dangerous and after the first time to get it checked out. Learn something new every day!!
