Your instrument cluster and console lights are protected by fuse #2 (15 Amp) in the underhood fuse and relay box. They actually get power from the tail lamp relay. If the tail lamps are working, the relay and the fuse is not your problem. The brightness of these lights are controlled by the Multiplex Control Unit and theCPU built into the instrument gauge cluster. The dimmer circuits are actually integral with the instrument cluster. If the tail lights are working and the lighting in the instrument cluster is working, then the problem is either a CPU failure in the instrument cluster or an open circuit between the instrument cluster and the center console lights. The console lights themselves should have power all the time that the tail lights are turned on. The CPU in the instrument cluster provides ground for them to function. The wiring is a little different depending on which model you have and how it is equipped (LX, DX, EX, LX with side curtain airbags, etc.) however, the function is the same.
I highly recommend scanning your computer network for fault codes before spending a lot of time trying to perform electrical diagnosis. There may be a fault code present that will lead directly to the cause.
Look for fuse panel under or either side of dash. Another location may be similar in engine bay.
Fuses probably labelled. Available at motor shops, garages etc.
If out of your experience then probably not expensive to ask auto electrician where to look. Many are cooperative and may tell over the phone or counter.
If the overhead lights are working but the console is not then it is a
bad console. I offer a repair service in which I replace all of the
faulty electronic components, and it includes a lifetime warranty. I
have a bunch of tech info there; how to remove the console, etc. Check
it out and drop me a note if you have any questions, thanks!
It is under the N. One has to remove the center console and the black part where the letters are: L,N,D etc. It has 2 claws in one side and 2 in the other and one can lift it and see down inside the Sylvania 2723LL lamp with a green cover. Put the green cover on the new lamp. There are not screws only claws and clips and one claw in the Center Console. Where the letters are located it's call Indicator Housing Upper.
Test the dash first. Put key in hold down trip reset botton. Turn the key to on but don't start. Release the trip botton. Should turn on all dash lights & check for codes in the odometer. If getting codes reply back.
I've never heard of anyone fix the LED lights. When they go, there gone. Just replace the overhead console. It's eazy to replace the console. Th console just pops down. No special clips. Call the salvage yards for one around $35..Get the warranty from the salvage yard Do Not Buy AS IS. Make sure to remove the negitive battery cable before removing. the console. Eveything unplugs eazy from the console
