Asked by Mar 06, 2014 at 05:39 PM about the 2002 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently bought a 2002 Taurus and the instrument lights do not work. I pulled out the headlight switch and the one connector was off. I plugged it back in and the instrument lights now work, but the engine dies when I turn the parking lights or headlights on. I disconnected the connector and the engine runs fine again with the lights on, but of course the instrument lights quit again. Any ideas? Thanks

Probably you have shortcut somewhere in the instrumental cluster.
