Dash lights and all interior lights dont work 98 accord

None of the interior lights in the car work except some of the dash lights, such as check engine and oil, however, the gauge lights, a/c, shifter lights and dome lights all don't work. I have checked all the fuses and they all are fine. What next?

It is likely the interior lighting dimmer control switch is defective or turned off.

SOURCE: none of the gauges will work on my 98 plymouth

This is because it is one of your main relay is bad. It is also part of the circuit that your starter is on.
This fuse panel is under the hood just to the left of the battery.

SOURCE: The interior dome light is burned out, removing cover problem.

You will have to pry off the lens CAREFULLY using a small screwdriver. There are two little plastic protrusions on each long side of the lens which fit into the casement. You can ease the casement away from the lens enough to get it to pop out. Re-inserting it is the same, but probably easier.
Gently, give it a try.
Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: power door locks don't work; interior lights

these trucks have a generic body control module in the left kickpanel. just remove the plastic trim from the drivers floor molding to access the module. inspect the wire for green dust or gel. if there is signs of this then you have a corrosion problem. disconnect you battery and then try cleaning the corrosion all off using contact cleaner and penetrating oil. once the corrosion is gone then reconnect everything and try to see if it works. If not then it is possible that the module is damaged. you will need a new one.

I installed aftermarket radio on toyata corolla 06. everything worked fine except for dash light dont come on and tail lights dont either. checked fuses and none are bad. help plz!!!!


You have probably connected the dash auxiliary wire with a wrong wire on the aftermarket radio. Such scenario should pop a fuse and probably kill the lights. Try disconnecting the radio and see if that solves ur problem. Then u probably need to rewire.

This sound like some type of relay switch failure in the fuse box, you need check all the fuses and see if they're all intact and make sure none of them are burned out. If all these are not working you have a live wire some where in you wire harness

No dash lights after i put in stereo


Sorry to hear that.... Now, take it apart and find out what you unplugged while you were in there. Also, check that you did not tap into something you should not have for power, and that you did not blow a fuse by accident!
