No Lights on '89 XLT

Hey guys',

I posted this in the intro section and realized that was a no no... so sorry if you're reading this twice.

Awhile back, I replaced the headlight switch in my Bronco. At the time, my headlights were flickering on me, but all my other lights (interior & exterior) were working fine. I got my new switch in with no problem, and my headlights work great.... but ever since then, my tail, parking, dome, instrument cluster and glove box lights do not work. I know these all run through the same fuse which I've replaced. I've also checked all the bulbs and they are fine. I'll add that the brake and turn lights work fine as do my hazards (which I use if I'm driving at night). Any ideas?

I've been told these lights run through a relay which I have NOT checked. I feel pretty comfortable with minor - medium fixes, but I'm pretty lost when it comes to the electrical side of things. Wiring diagrams look like spaghetti to me, so any help would be appreciated.

There's a fuseable link wire in the circuit. I dom't remember where it is but usually near the battery. The wire is black/orange. you can check for power in that wire at the headlight switch. Here's the diagram. Figure #27. | Repair Guides | Wiring Diagrams | Wiring Diagrams | AutoZone.com

Thanks Bert,

I looked over these diagrams a bit last night. I'm gonna replace the link on that circuit tonight and see if that works. If that's not it, I'm only out a few bucks and I'll update my post.

You could check for voltages there and see if that's the problem.
