John Deere 5320, ‘56 Ford 601 (been in family since new)
Just recently all the lights stop working on my John Deere 5320 tractor. The only sign of any lights is on the instrument cluster and think that is because as soon as you start the tractor those lights are on. It seams strange that I would lose every light on the tractor. I checked some of the fuses and they all seemed to be alright. What got me thinking is the only switch controlling the lights is a single rotation switch that controls what lights you want on at any given time. I've done some check with other post and found that the switch can malfunction and cause similar problems. But, the turn signals, which is another switch, does not work either. My question is there something else that could create the issues? Noticed when checking the fuses there are some larger components on the fuse panel and wondering what they are and could they be my problem. Not very good at chasing down electrical problems especially when every light stopped working. Any and all help with this is really appreciated.
Thanks.

If you think it may be a switch see if you have voltage going into the switch. Turn on the light and see if you get voltage on that terminal. Get a wiring diagram and see if there are any relays between the switch and associated light. Troubleshooting mostly involves seeing what works and what doesn't then trying to figure out why.

I sold my 5310 and my shop manual went with it but there are some relays that control various funtions, I just don't remember if the lights are on one. My guess would be the switch but without looking at a drawing I don't really know. You should get the shop manual. It's worth every penny you will pay for it.
