Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi everyone , I'm hoping someone can help me here.I have a 2010 ford
bantam 1.3i base model.Theres no option to select 2010 model so i'm
putting that info here. Last night while driving home , my dash lights
suddenly went out.I just checked again a few minutes ago and they still
dont come on.My tail lights also dont come on.My reverse lights and head
lights and hazard(emergency) lights all work.I checked the fuses and
double checked them , all are fine.Any idea on what could be the problem ?
Thanks to all in advance..Ajay

May be cables problem which will be hard to find. Another thing I would check is the fuse on the battery positive cable.I'm not sure if this car has it but I would assume it does. I had similar problem on Toyota, where half of the electrical stuff was working and half was not and the car was starting just fine.

thanks for your reply.I checked the positive cable from the battery.there is something there , its not a fuse ,but everything looks fine.It looks like a 3-pin kind of switch.I'm just worried that without tail lights in the night , it will be difficult for other drivers to see me at night , and that may cause an accident.hopefully we can get it sorted out soon..thanks again for your help.

Hey everyone.Some feedback on the problem. i replaced all the fuses except 1 , that the shop didnt have.and then i replaced the combination switch.Armstrong had for R3349:32 , I called a local spare shop and got the switch and all the fuses for just under R600:00 .Fitted it on and everything is working great.Just remember to put the relay from the old switch onto the new one for the hazard lights.
