PARKING LIGHTS AND DASH LIGHTS WON,T COME ON. WENT TURN ON

Customer Question

Customer: PARKING LIGHTS AND DASH LIGHTS WON,T COME ON. WENT TURN ON PARK LIGHT ONLY HEAR SOUND LET YOU KNOW THE LIGHT SWITCH IS ON. HEAD LIGHTS AND SIGNAL LIGHTS WORK O.K. WHEN TURN INTERIOR LIGHT WHEEL THE LIGHTS INSIDE THE STOP WILL COME ON. OTHER DAY IN DAY TIME GOT HOME AND GOT OUT AND THAT ONE TIME ONLY THE LIGHTS WHERE ON, WITH THE LIGHT SWITCH OFF. TURN SWITCH BACK ON AND OFF BUT DID NO DIFFERENT. TO TURN LIGHT OFF I HAD TO UNHOOK THE BATTERY CABLE. ONE TIME SINCE GOT THIS WAY ONE DAY IT ALL WHEN BACK WORKING FOR ONE TIME ONLY. NOT WORK SINCE. ALSO WHEN CAME ON AND WORK FOR A WHILE, SOUND LIKE UNDERDASH WAS A LITTLE SOUND LIKE A LITTLE RELAY CHATTER. REPLACE THE LIGHT SWITCH. STAY THE SAME. ONE MECHANIC ON PHONE MENTION ABOUT A CLUSTER, BUT COUPLE MORE TALK TO SAY MIGHT BE THE BCM UP UNDER THE DASH. RUN A TEST LIGHT PROBE ACROSS ALL FUSES UNDER HOOD AND EA. ONE LIGHT ON BOTH ENDS OF THE FUSES. HAVE NO ALARM SYSTEM. iS A 3.3 LITER 1996 PLYMOUTH VOYGER

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

There are three fuses that power that park lamp circuit, start with checking the fuses #1 and #4 and #6 in the junction box fuse panel. If the fuse check okay then the next step is going to be to scan the system and see if the body control module is setting any fault codes. See the wiring diagram in the link below for reference .

At this point it may not be a bad idea to at least give it a try.
