I have a 1996 Ford Ranger, 2WD, Supercab, 4 cylinder engine. My Dashboard lights went out, along with my tail lights. My rear break lights and rear flashers still work, just not the regular lights, the ones that stay on at night and whenever you have the headlamps on.
A year and a half-ago, this happened, and the problem was a blown fuse, which was easily fixed (by replacing the fuse). The fuses all look fine this time around, so I'm having trouble fixing the problem. Although I'm not a hundred percent I'm correct about this, because the manual does not indicate which fuse handles the tail lights or the dashboard lights. I've looked at every fuse, and tried replacing about 10 of them, but there was no effect.
Is there anything else that would cause this problem? A disconnected wire or something? I would like to fix this myself, but I'm not that great at fixing car things. I can't drive at night until I take care of it, though (cars behind me can't see me).
btw, there appears to still be power and light to my radio display, although I think the back light to the buttons and stuff are also out.
