It's easy, you can do it yourself. if it's the green LED then you need to know more about soldering, etc

2005 Civic Temp Control & center dash lights not working -blower & all vent settings are functional ,I have checked all fuses under column & underhood with NO blown fuses


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.

No dash lights 1995 Jeep. I have no dash lights. My interior lights work, brake lights work, console lights dont work, stereo lights work, high beam indicator works, blinker indicator works, everything...


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.

All dashboard/ center console lights out.


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.
