The first thing you want to check is to see if the rheostat for the dash panel lighting isn't turned "off". There is a button on the instrument panel to the left of the steering wheel just below the gauge cluster corner. push the round knob in and it will pop out. when it does you can turn the knob to adjust the brightness of the dash lights.

1990 HONDA CIVIC DX ENGINE LIGHT ON


More info needed. Is this a hatch back, sedan, or CRX? Is the odometer mechanical [old style] or digital [LCD numbers] The vehicle speed sensor [located behind the speedometer in the instrument cluster] drives both the speedometer and the odometer [mileage meter]. It sounds like an electric problem in the instrument cluster. Remove the instrument cluster and take it to your local speedometer repair shop. Look in the yellow pages for them. Or simply buy and install a used instrument cluster from a junk yard.

2005 Civic Temp Control & center dash lights not working -blower & all vent settings are functional ,I have checked all fuses under column & underhood with NO blown fuses


Your instrument cluster and console lights are protected by fuse #2 (15 Amp) in the underhood fuse and relay box. They actually get power from the tail lamp relay. If the tail lamps are working, the relay and the fuse is not your problem. The brightness of these lights are controlled by the Multiplex Control Unit and theCPU built into the instrument gauge cluster. The dimmer circuits are actually integral with the instrument cluster. If the tail lights are working and the lighting in the instrument cluster is working, then the problem is either a CPU failure in the instrument cluster or an open circuit between the instrument cluster and the center console lights. The console lights themselves should have power all the time that the tail lights are turned on. The CPU in the instrument cluster provides ground for them to function. The wiring is a little different depending on which model you have and how it is equipped (LX, DX, EX, LX with side curtain airbags, etc.) however, the function is the same.

I highly recommend scanning your computer network for fault codes before spending a lot of time trying to perform electrical diagnosis. There may be a fault code present that will lead directly to the cause.

The insterment lights don't work


I know this might sound strange to you, but check the TAILIGHT fuse. Some GM cars suffer similar symptoms. Tailight fuse blows ( tailights inop and unknown to the driver ), and sort of like a warning of something wrong, NO DASH LIGHTS. Check this first. You still might have other probs
