Dash and parking lights not working Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs? Check all fuses and replaced the switch and still not coming on Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car? 2000 Ford Explorer xls Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Explorer yourself? What have you tried so far? Yes, I haven’t done electric in awhile so I’m a little rusty on it. I’ve replace the switch and check fuses. Non of them are blown. Checked wires to switch and there’s power. Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you? The fog lights don’t seem to be working either

Thank you. **there's an issue within the relay module on the vehicle. the parking lamp relay is located in the Auxiliary Relay Box 2, behind instrument Cluster, under driver Dash**

I appreciate the assistance. I had to put everything back on to take care of my kids so I’m looking for brainstorming on what could be the problem. i honestly forgot about the relay module. I don’t have the owners manual. Does the module control the dash/parking/fog lights?
Automotive Expert
the relay module has a few different relays in it. (see pic)

I see, but doesn’t show about the dash or fog lights
Automotive Expert
the parking lamp relay is tied to the dash and fog light circuitry

That does explain the connection, would there be any other diagnosis as to why it’s not working
Automotive Expert
ok, heres the schematics. read them and you can see for yourself hoe everything is tied in together. (attached)

Have a moment
