Question about 1992 Subaru Loyale

1 Answer

Dash light doesnt come on.

I don't know how or why but the dash illumination light doesn't come on when I turn on the headlights like it used to. I tried to pull it apart to see if there is a burned out light but it turns out to be quite the process to get into there.. I don't know why it would be so difficult to change such an important light if indeed that is the case. I was hoping maybe someone might know if it could be something else (hopefully easier than dismantling the whole dash). Thanks in advance.-Chad

    I just bought a 1992 Loyale. No dash lights either. Would be great to hear the solution. The guy I bought it from changed the engine but didn't fix this..lol....must be a reason :-)

Not that big a job replaceing all those dash lites in that sweet Loyale. Only thing making easier would be to GRAB a Haynes manuel each time you by a car. On another car that bezel covering the lamp was held in place only by two snap tines on sides of bezel above lights knob chk yours for this type release

How do I get the gages on my 2014 Toyota Tundra to illuminate during the day.


Many new cars have a sensor on the dash, found under a hole in the top of the dash, that tells a computer when to turn on the dash lights and headlights. If you cover this hole, the lights should turn on.

Any time the headlights are on, the dash lights should illuminate as well.

Instrument panel light malfunctioning.


I have a buddy with a Jimmy and his lights did something similar, but once the dash illumination quit, nothing would make them come back on. We ended up replacing the entire light switch assembly, and it fixed it. We assume the dash illumination dimmer switch was shorted out. You may try getting a can of contact cleaner and taking the switch out and spraying all electrical connections related to your lighting to clean them up, THEN look into a new switch if that doesnt help. Hope this helped!!

Electral the dash lights are not working


check your dash light dimmer switch. it is usually by the headlight switch, it might of gotten bumped accidently. if this doesn't fix your issue then i need to know if all dash lights are out or just the ones in the instrument cluster.

1994 silverado illumination on instrument panel doesn't work, parking lights and tail lights do not work but headlights and brakelights work fine. All fuses are good. Is this a bad dimmer switch?


No. Dash lights being out could be a bad headlight switch, since the dash lights are routed through the headlight switch, not the dimmer switch. Park and tail lights also controlled by the headlight switch.

I have a 1983 oldsmobile 98 and the dashboard lights wont turn off how can I turn them off so my battery wont die


Is it the illumination lights? If so, that sounds like a bad headlight switch-when you put the park lights on (first click), it turns on the dash illumination lights.
If it is warning lights or other lights on the dash, it could be a bad ignition switch.

When my headlights come on at night, the dash lights will not come on and the radio illumination behind the clock goes out. Why is this?


Check the dimmer switch to your dash light. If there turned down, your dash and radio illumination light will be dime or not working at all. Keep me posted, be glad to know if it is the dimmer switch turned down or you dimmer switch has gone bad. Good luck

Brake and dash lights no working


Had a similar problem and fixed it by installing a new headlight switch / turn signal lever. Hope this helps.
