Colorado Instrument panel lighting

My 06 Colorado LT has some of the lighting in the instrument panel blown. The 4x4H, the skip button for the cd player, the 1 and 2 button for programming radio stations and the TRAF button. I was wondering if the instrument panel has replaceable blubs or is in a circuit board lighting system?

The bulbs plug into a printed circuit board, I suspect they have come loose, pull the cluster and see if they are loose or burned out.

Instrument lights for 1995 Isuzu rodeo don't work


Since it's highly unlikely all your instrument panel bulbs are blown (that usually only occurs if a faulty alternator puts out excessive voltage), it can be several things.
Have you checked your taillights and brake lights? Reason I say, many vehicles are designed to not illuminate the instrument panel lights if both taillights are out (a safety feature and tell-tale warning to the driver). If the taillights are ok, it may have a bad dimmer resistor for the inst panel lights, presuming the fuse that controls the dash lights is good. The other possibility is a faulty ground connection to the instrument panel circuit board or wire loom.

2000 Celica GT AC and dashboard lights & gauges out suddenly (Together)


Here's how it should work: Power for the instrument panel comes from the 7.5A ECU-B fuse in the instrument panel junction box (I/PJB). A WHT/BLK wire from the instrument panel is grounded in that box. The I/PJB also contains a 5A WARNING fuse which is connected to the instrument panel by a RED/YEL wire. The 5A BKUP LAMP fuse supplies power on a RED/BLU wire to the vehicle speed sensor (combination meter) and a LT GRN wire from sensor is connected to the instrument panel. In addition, a LT GRN/RED wire from the instrument panel connects to the ECM. The YEL/GRN and RED/BLU wires from the instrument panel connect to the body ECU. There are three ground wires: two WHT/BLK and one BRN

Insturmentation panel lights fuse blows when i start car


Try to remove the instrument panel and disconnect the harness to see if doing that gets rid of the blown fuse when starting the car. If it does, then the instrument panel should be replaced with another. If the fuse still blows when starting, then there is a wire shorted to ground somewhere.
