Default Lights in the front would work but the Tails and the Dash Light are out in my 1992 Mazda MPV

Lights in the front would work but the Tails and the Dash Light are out in my 1992 Mazda MPV 6cyl/3.0Engine. Checked tail light fuse in the fuse panel box [C-Instrument panel light control,Taillights] and the fuse is good. Also turned up the dimmer switch but the lights still do not work.
Can anyone please help.

Thanks

Have you had any other problems or say a radio/etc installed recently. You say the front lights work meaning headlights or corner lights/side markers? Possibly the headlight switch which if you are at least a little bit mechanically inclined you could remove/disasemble and repair. It's not rocket science. You just need to work carefully with the switch over a towel so as not to lose springs/contacts. There are 2 ways to buy a headlight switch. Some will sell you the entire combination switch and others just the headlight switch if you need one. If your van does not have adjustable intermittent wipers you could upgrade it at that time since it is wired for it already. There is a white wire with a green stripe coming out of the headlight switch connector that should be12 voltswith the parking lights on. It feeds the tail lights/front corner lights and instrument cluster. It goes through a 15 amp fuse first.

Front lights [headlights] are working but the corner lights/side markers & Tail lights are not working.
Checked all the fuses & bulbs are fine. Now a weird thing happens, when I turn on the tail lights and dash board , parking, license & side marker lights [not headlights] the lights do not come on immediately but they all turn on after 30 to 45 minutes. When I switch of these lights off and on they come on and off a couple of times only then again I have turn on the lights and have to wait 30 to 45 minutes before these lights turn on again.
Please advise what could be the problem.
Thanx

You either need a headlight switch or repair it.
