Question about 1999 Chevrolet Malibu

2 Answers

2000 Buick Century Dash lights won't come on.

Checked all the fuses, checked dimmer control, tail lights and head lights work fine. Dome light works. The dash lights to gages, radio, and heater controls don't work. Could it be something to do with a relay? I suspect it's a common flaw with that year and model. Has anyone else with this problem found the Rx?

Parking lights, tail lights, and dash lights dont work


i assume you have checked all lighting fuses. if you have not, start there. do you have brake lights? if you do have brake and head lights then i would suspect the dimmer/light switch.

Dash and tail lights not workjng brake and turn signal on passanger side not working


The dash and tail lights are on two different circuits, and the brake and turn signals are on different circuits, so at least 4 circuits total.
I would start at the headlight switch and check for power on the first two issues.

The dash lights went out on my 2000 Buick Lesabre Custom. It doesn't have the heads up display or remote locks, though they are power. All the other lights work fine, the computer displays work, and when...


Sounds like you have some confusion going on here.
The dash lights and tail lights have always been on different circuits and fuses. So if one set of lights fail, the other stays on unless the headlight switch blows up.
The fuse marked "instruments" is for the speedo and gas gauge, not the lights.
On your car there is an instrument panel module and a dash integraded module which both involve the dash lights.
You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams and test procedures for this circuit.
Another thing - after 1998 most cars and trucks switched from having the headlight switch provide power to having them provide the ground connection.

Dash lights,dimmer lights do not come on. dash is dark. I have checked fuse ( 7.5amp) looks ok. what else can I check?


Check the taillight fuse, too (15 amp fuse next to the 7.5A instrument panel fuse). If this fuse blows, the dash lights will go out, too. I don't know why they did that, but they did. The next step then is to find out why the taillight fuse blows. It has done this repeatedly on my mom's 2002 Century. Haven't found the short yet.

1994 Buick centry tail light and dash lights not working


By the info that you gave, I would have to say (guess) that it would be your wifes headlight switch. Because it is possible for the headlights to still work when the switch goes. The headlights, taillights, dash lights, dome light, and dimmer all work off the headlight switch and only part of the switch can go and the other part still be good and functioning. Hope this helps or at least, head you in the right direction to solve the issue. Best wishes.
