    Question Dash, side and parking lights... out!

    Hello everyone. I went for a night drive the other day and after going over a speed bump, my dash lights went out.

    Tonight however I noticed that the side lights and the parking lights do not work either.

    The fuses were all checked and replaced. The headlights, turn signal/hazards, and break lights work.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated, as always.

    My best guess would be your switch has a corroded or loose connection. time to get the meter out and test.

    Ok I will test the switch connection or any other connections... perhaps something got bumped loose. I noticed another with similar problems, but it was for a 280z and I'm sure that the electrical system is different on them.

    Different yes but the light switch assembly is close if not identical.
