According to the 1988 shop manual, the IPC instrument panel cluster - and the overhead map lights
receive power from the computer modules which seem to be located behind the glove box, I plan to
remove the cardboard from the glove box and check for loose connectors. If this fails, I will contact a
self employed mechanic who used to work for an Olds dealer. He is both competent and honest.

On the passenger front fender, just behind the battery is a main junction block for almost all power to the car. It is red, disconnect the battery, open the red cover and make sure the two copper nuts are tight and free of corrosion. Also check your battery connection and make sure those are clean and tight.

Electronic dash goes of and on on 1988 Oldsmobile Toronado Trofeo

There is one plug that controls the whole module. Firstly, remove the steering cowling, below that you will find a large white connector. This has become loose. push it back into position. To be doubly sure you have good connectivity, drive it for a while without the cowling on, if no probems, secure it in place with insulating tape to prevent it coming apart again. If it's not under the cowling, put your hand behind the dash, follow the largest loom up to the dash and make sure it is fixed properly. Follow the loom back intowards the firewall, if there is a connector block, make sure it is in place.

No night time illumination, dash or console - 88 toronado - dash stays lt for day use at night

if theres no illumination try checking the fusebox and look for the gauge fuse, if its broken replace it. if the fuse is fine then try replacing the bulbs in the instrumental panel, it will take a long work but u can really fix it, just remember to where to put the screws back. hope this helps. thanks
