    the lighting on the interior dash lower appears to be out. Does anyone know about the relay? What does it run to fix this? I also noticed like an electrical short on the interior panel one evening (radio etc) all went out for a second or so. Mine is a 2000 Ford Explorer Sport.

Having trouble viewing speedometer gage at night


You can turn your dimmer up, and make sure you are turning on headlights. Newer cars with new guages makes it easy to forget. You can drive on driving lights and still see dash.

No dash lights when headlights are turned on. Everything works fine on my vehicle EXCEPT today the panel lights don't work. Turn signals, hazard blinker, oil gauge, rpm gauge, speedometer, drive shift...


there is a regulator for the display brightness, you may have it turn'd down or it has stopped working;. it controls the brightness at which the dash lights are. usually has a speedo sign on it. goes up and down. it works with the main light and is conecter to them on the same lighting board if it has gone then a new light swtch control switch will be needed.

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.

Interior dash lights are dim


make sure that there is nothing covering the Ambient Light Sensor on your dash - if the computer thinks it is night time, it will dim your dashlights during daylight hours.
