Customer Question
1988 b2200. Dash, taillights...

1988 b2200. Dash, taillights and marker lights all out

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the bulbs? Have you checked the connection?

What connection do you suggest

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your B2200 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just bought this truck and have not tried anything. I have made a jumper to get the dash lights working hopefully. Will that get the tail lights and marker lights working as well? What is the fuse labeled as?

Hello, there's a red and black wire coming off the headlight switch that powers those lights. Check that you have 12 volts on that wire with the switch in the marker position as well as lights on. I'll post the wiring diagram below. A jumper will likely work or you can replace the switch.
