Dash lights and tail lights on 1999 Mercury Sable dont work

70

Asked by Sep 01, 2013 at 05:30 PM about the 1999 Mercury Sable 4 Dr GS Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I checked the fuses in engine compartment, they are good. Car does not have auto lights. There is no power on the dash light and tail light fuses inside of car in fuse box. I put a jumper wire from cigar lighter to fuses and lights will work. I can hear a relay kick in when I touch the jumper wire to the fuse. Sounds like its coming from behind the radio/ heater control unit. Any advice for me? Thanks

Check the main fuses in the power distribution box under the hood.

Then you have an open circuit somewhere from the mains box to the fuse box.
