SOURCE: no park light , no dash light

its probably the terminal to the fuse under the hood if its no power at either. you would have to pull the fuse block and either remove the terminal to that side or replace the whole fuse block. but when you get that block out test the either power strip or the feed wire at that point, do a temperary bi-pass then see if your interior fuse heats up. im thinking it will and if so this will isolate your problem.

There is a ground not connected or a wire open that is causing it to blow

Parking lights and dash not working


Park lights and dash lights usually draw power from the same fuse. We had a problem recently when someone did not realize that there are fuses in the engine compartment as well as in the car. Pop the hood and check for a blown fuse.

Fuse keeps blowing out


The parking lights, dash lights, turn signals, and hazard flasher should be 4 different circuits.
So you would need to know exactly what that fuse protects, then look for the short to ground.

Lights or fuse for my speed odemeter guage and heater/air conditioning system


These lights for the dash are controlled by a rheostat instrument control dimmer switch next to the main light switch for the headlights, it is either turned off (have seen this dozens of times) or it is defective. Below is a picture of the switch assembly I speak of. The thumb wheel next to the knob is the dimmer control.

I have a 1999 pontiac grand am and the tail lights and the dash lights do not work. I have checked all the fuses and bulbs. I discovered that the connector for the reverse lights on the bottom of the car...


THIS WOULD HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE DASH LIGHTS... WHEN YOU TURNN ON YOUR PARKING LIGHTS YOU SEND POWER STRIEGHT FROM HEADLIGHT SWITCH TO THE DASH...NEED TO RECHECK PARK LIGHT FUSE...IF GOOD THE BAD HEAD LIGHT SWITCH SOUNDS MOST LIKELY

DRL WORK BUT NO TAIL LIGHTS OR DASH LIGHTS AT NIGHT


I FIXED THIS ISSUE IN MY CASE. NOT TOO HARD IN A FEW MINUTES.

I didn't know there was another fuse box in the crevice of opening the passenger door. It helped when I found that out in the owners manual.

Narrowed things down by checking to see if I had rear parking/running lights since I heard this was also the dash light fuse.
*I did not have these rear parking lights coming on, just when I would apply the brake*

Sure enought that 15A fuse was blown, its in the passenger side box. I heard in my searching for a fix that this fuse also controlled dash lights. Sure enough it does! ( I have 2000 base model 3.4 impala)

SO, Things worked after that, UNTIL I MOVED MY ASH TRAY IN AND OUT A FEW TIMES!!

The dash lights flickered a bit when I moved the ashtray in and out and after a few times I heard a POP! and no more dash lights just like before. Fuse was blown, and I didn't have another 15A that wasnt plugged in making something work. My ashtray light had not been working for the last while by the way.

SO, I pulled out a 15A fuse from the the slot that said CIG on the passenger side, I never use the 12v ports anyway. (used it for the rear parking light/dash light slot to get the dash lights working again.)

*But, the dash lights looked a little lazy, meaning I could see a bit of a powerup happening over 1-2 seconds to full illumination*

SO. then I went in the book and found out what fuses that had anything to do with the ash/aux outlet sliding tray which was good at popping the fuse that lit up the dash. I wanted to disable the ashtray light and 12V ports in the tray to be safe.

I already pulled the appropriate 15A fuse on the passenger side which I used to bring the dash and rear parking lights back. But also, I decided to remove the 10A fuse on the drivers side that was for the accessory outlet. ( it might have been labelled CIG?)

Dash lights come on fast and solid now, sliding the tray does not have an influence or cause flickering.

My car is old enough that I don't care about having to rearrange fuses to make things work, If end up needing the 12v ports I can put the 10A fuse back in since the tray needs to be held open anyway.

I hope this helps.

10amp fuse keeps popping


check each of the terminals of those bulb you mentioned. wonder if there's a relay associated to this circuit, check for short if this is the case. remove all the light bulbs [of course - the dash may not be necessary (it's a PITA) & let's hope that it's not the culprit]. visually inspect those bulbs & replace if something unusual. put back the relay if it has no short, turn on the switch, let's hope the dash lights up & it won't blow the fuse anymore, otherwise look for uninsulated wire touching the chasssis or ay metal part of the car. you may continue replacin the bulbs.
