96 olds aurora: no tail-lights, dash-lights, fog lights..fuses

Customer Question

I am woking on a '96 olds aurora. I have no tail-lights, dash-lights, fog lights, or side lights. All fuses seem to work. I suspect the light sensors, but don't know how to check it. I also wonder how to check the switch for the lights.

All your lights are controlled with the light control module. This is essentially a computer that turns the lights on and off depending on the switch's inputs.

To test the switch...

Make sure that the switch has a good ground. (black/white wire). The switch supples a ground to the Lighting control module when the switch turned on (Gray/black wire) the lighting control module then turns on the parking lamps (brown wire out of the module).

To test the module...

At the lighting control module check the orange/black wire for 12v. Also check the orange wire for 12V. If the switch grounds are there and the powers are good, the lighting control module is bad.

Here are a couple of wiring diagrams to help you out. If you have any questions, PLEASE ask. Some of these parts are expensive, so ask if you are unsure of something.

Expert:  Rmldaytona replied 9 years ago.

Your lamp control module is located LH side of the dash under the instrument panel. Sorry for the long response. Let me know if there is anything else.
