No dashlight and rearlight in ford escort

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  No dashlight and rearlight in ford escort

I'm having the following problem, i have a ford escort Bravo 1.4 '89. And since a short time my dashboard lights blank out and my left rear light does not work. Can anyone tell me what to do??? or has anyone got a solution???

I'm desperate since i can't find the problem. It hapens sometimes when i want to turn on the lights or even whilst driving. And as you can emagine, this is not easy at night. Since i need my car every day, i would appericiate it if someone has a answer or solution.

You can send me an answer to this forum or to or

Regards Voyage.

Well check the fuse to start for the dash lights. Check the conectors for the rear light and change the bulbs.

If you ahvent already get a workshop manual as this will shave you hours looking for realted symptoms.

Also introduce yourself as it is considered rude not to!

It sounds like you are saying this is an intermittent problem?
If so you need to look for bad connectors or a bad groung wire connection associated with the malfunctionoong circuits. as already suggested get a manual and use the wiring diagrams. Be prepared to clean a corroded connection or tighten a loose one.
