I recommend you buy a multi-meter and use it to trace out the power. The head light switch, wires, fuses and bulb connections all need to be checked.

Definitely check the headlight switch and also check the taillight bulbs. Another thing to check is the ground connection at the back of the car. A Multi-meter is a must have to check electrical issues.

I have used the meter to check all the fuses and only the Dom and the taillight fuses light the meter, the Dom light is on but the taillights won't come on.


I have switch on order now, but will go out to the garage now and check that ground


Yeah I checked for a ground at the rear of the car but found none,,,hey my ignition switch is bad ,do you think that could be the culprit,,!
