2000 Ford Ranger: No Rear Night Tail Lights


Asked by Nov 17, 2014 at 08:27 AM about the 2000 Ford Ranger XL Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The Night Rear Tail Lights will not turn on when I turn my Head Light Switch to "ON".
I've changed all Bulbs, Fuses, Relays, cleaned every connection from rear Bulb Plugs,
to Front of Wire Harness. Rear Blinker, Brake Lights, Turn Signals, and Flashers work,
but the Night Driving Lights will not come on with Light Switch in the On Position. Can
anyone advise me on how to solve this problem? I can't Drive at Night, it's Dangerous,
and I do not want to get a Ticket. I'll be 60 this Christmas, and no Tickets sense I
started Driving at 17. Forced to be a DIY due to receiving SSDI (my only income),
Injury, and Illness stopped me from working. CAN SOME ONE PLEASE HELP?
