Q: Dash lights are out on my Ford Ranger.

asked by on

I have a 1993 ford ranger and the dashboard lights and cigarette lighter is out in the truck. I refuse to believe that all the lights went out at once. I replaced all the fuses and it doesn't seem to be the problem. What else could I replace rather than tearing the whole dashboard apart just to see if the bulbs are blowed. Thanks

My car has 112000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Check the ground wiring under the dashboard to see if it is loose. A loose or broken wire will cause electrical issues with the dash lights and cigarette lighter to not work. If you need further assistance with your electrical issues, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
