Hey.

I see you have another thread on the dash lights not lighting either?

Do your parkers work? they are in the same circuit as the tail/dash lights, IE, switch on with the same switch, and pretty sure use the same fuse/relays. Could be a bit wrong on that point.

Anyway, if you have changed all the relay/fusebulbs, then thisd only leaves the loom itself, and earths.

If the earth is loose at the relays, they will not switch. And if there is a problem with the pos feed to them, they'll still not work.

Get a multimeter or test light, and check for power and earth at:
-Relays
-Pos at the fuses
-Possibly check for fusible links broken?

Give that a go.

Andrew.

yeah i have another thread on the dash lights not working either.

my parkers are not working and ive looked in the max ellery's manual, its says its all on the same circiut. ive checked, double checked and triple checked all the earth points and they are ok. so i know im gona look like a d***head if the problem is an earth lol

ive checked the whole circuit and i still dont know whats wrong.

under the dash is a 2 pin plug which has the wires for the tail lights and cluster lights but its not plugged in. THERE IS NO WHERE TO PLUG IT IN!!!

can someone look on there EF to see if its connected???

the wire colours are brown and Blue/red trace colour
