Are all the lights in the dash out? if not, it is the bulb, the bad news is you have to remove the instrument cluster to replace the bulbs, there is no access from the rear that allows you to get your hand in there.

SOURCE: my light on my dashboard

While I check my files,the quickest way to check fuses is with a test light.These can be bought at most electronic or automotive parts stores really cheaply.
earth one end and probe each side of each fuse with the ignition on and lights on if you want.
The fuses that light both sides are good
lit one side only are blown or bad connection-REPLACE with the same color(amperage)
not lit at all,no power supply,either a fault or usually just not powered at that time.
I hope this helps you,or get back to me with your findings

I have a 1999 crown Vick and my dashboard lighting isn't working... I have turning signals and warning signals but no lighting to tell me how fast I'm going or where my fuel is... .. What do I do


It's most likely a fuse. Check your fuse panel or your owners manual to see where the fuse is located. The fuse will be called illumination cluster, or ignition cluster. That should solve the issue

Indicators not working


That is a common problem when one of the turn signals bulbs is out. check the light bulbs on the side that is not working or the side that the dashboard flashes quicker. replace the light bulb front or rear. take a good look at the light bulb filament inside. some times is not easy to detect some other time the light bulbs will be light black powder inside if they are bad. if the light bulb does not fix it also check for the fuses may always be fuse as well.

My dash light is out I cannot see how fast I'm


Online you can buy a digital light up speedometer. It is an auxiliary unit and is something you can buy and keep on dashboard, console etc.

98 grand prix dashboard lights wont come on


I had a similar issue to yours recently. The PKG LIGHT fuse was out in the fuse block under the hood. I had no running lights, no instrument panel lights and rapid dinging when I open the door like an indicator of the headlights being left on. It is a 20AMP fuse in slot 37. There should be another fuse in one of your "spare" slots. Hope this helps.

How do i fix my dashboard lights on my 1986 chevy nova?


Turn the light switch on and check your tail lights. Back then the tail and dash lights work on the same circuit inside the headlight switch so if one was out so was the other. If this is the case you need a new headlight switch. If not, there should be a fuse in your panel marked "instr". that's for the dash lights. Hope this helps.

Dashboard lights


on the dash to the left of the steering column there should be a dial for the lights to dim or brighten them on the dash display and if you turn this all the way up it keeps the dome light on. if you have an owners manual it will help alot otherwise autozone is also helpful with diagrams and such for fuses and relays if that ends up being what is wrong but it sounds like the dash display light got turned down when the person installed your radio
