I have a 2007 Commander. My brake lights work, but my right rear tail light doesn't. Also, my front amber driving light doesn't illuminate. All blinkers do work.

Additionally, my dash lighting that illuminates the A/C controls and the throttle (Park/Reverse/Neutral/Drive) do not illuminate.

Is this a fuse problem?

Just had my first experience crawling under the drivers side to access the fuse panel- wasn't fun.. Any advice is appreciated. This is my first post, so lemme know if I need to post elsewhere

Thanks,
Steve

As I posted in the other thread, this sounds like an exact issue I had before where a fuse was blown under the hood... should be one of the red 10A fuses. Check them all with a multimeter if possible, or just swap them around I suppose and see if it fixes a problem in one place and causes one in another...

When I had this issue, I also had some interior lights not function until it was replaced as well (climate control, shifter, info center).

You probably have bulbs burned out. The brake and tail lights are 2 different parts of the bulbs - one can burn out and the other works. The brake light and flashers use the same part of the bulb. If a light on one side works and the other side dosn't, it's not a fuse as they are fused on the same fuse, try the bulb.
The dash lights may be a fuse or burned out.
Then there are the less common causes like bad bulb sockets, broken wires, bad relay's etc. try the easy stuff first.
Checking all fuses is always a good idea with electrical problems. Use a 12V tester that lights up when touched to the fuse. The hard part is finding a good ground for the other end of the tester:) There are 2 little metal spots on the top of each fuse. one is always 12V and should light up the tester, the other side is after the fuse and will light up if good - no light it's bad. Some fuses are only on with the engine turned on.

I just replaced one of the three 10 amp fuses that are in a row, in mine with the same EXACT problem. (in the fuse box closest to the front bumper)

You are wrong about the fuses
