06 Malibu LT Dash lights shut off


hi, gm vech. are elec.complex with logic that is all there own. im a retired ford tech, and gm would drive me crazy sometimes. now some ideas, your dash light are controlled with an ecm, keep in mind, your dashlights and tail lights are on the same circut. i would check your batt. cables, if your ground cable has a high resistance it could cause issues. in fords they had bad dimmer switches that would cause the same issue. if you have someone with an obd2scanner it might have a code.hope that helps.

My driver side turn signal only works during the day


just on the dash right....... because your dash lights turned on and it changes the brightness of the dash lights, try rolling the little wheel down on the left and see if there is a change?

on the other hand if the outside blinker light fails to work at night the bulb might be burned out you should check it and the dash light might not work if bulb is burned
just turn on the lights turn on the key and blinker and go look?

My dash lights dont work at all


The tail lights are usually on the same fuse as your dash lights. Check to see if you have tail lights. If they are on and it's only your dash lights that don't work, check the dash dimmer switch for a fault.

Dash lights don't work 1992 jeep wrangler


try turning the headlight knob left to right several times, and jiggle the switch at night. Also check your fuse panel should be a 10 amp or less fuse that says "Insr" or something like it.

Lights turn them selfs on then go off car is turned off and locked


I had the same problem.  IN the middle of the night the lights would flash on and off and the dash gauges would flutter back and forth.  It seemed to correspond to low voltages when my battery was going bad.  I replaced the battery and the problem didn't occur again.
