    I, I have the same problem, it been a month that it started and now the parking brakes on driver side dont light anymore. I have verified all fuses and light bulbs but its not it. So it should be a electrical problem. On an other furum, they sais to verified corosion on wired near of the couling system that could have a leak. Or if its just the dashligth you migth have to replace it. Here is a link how to do it.

I have a 93 altima that the ground screw needs to be retightning every 3-6 months.this will prevent the parking and stop lights in rear from lighting. these are located in the same plastic housing you remove to replace the rear light bulbs. good luck!!! joe

Renault clio fault finder

This may help show if you have a problem - it may even reset the light. With your ignition off, press in the button on the end of your wiper stalk(rt of steering wheel), still holding it pressed in, turn your ignition key but do not start the engine. All the dash lights should come on, a bleep/bell will sound every second, and your speed and revs dials will jump to different places in time with the sound. Press the stalk button once and the amount of fuel should be indicated in the mileage display area eg 25 L. Press it a second time and it will change - I don't know what this is but mine reads 0.0, a third time could be interesting as this indicates where you might have a fault - in one of 4 areas - . If no problem detected then simply four dashes viz - - - -, you might have - - E - for electrical; press it again and you go back to the amount of fuel. Lastly, if you press the mileage select button, this resets (I believe) the fault codes and might also reset your lamp. Everything goes back to normal. Now start your engine and see if the red light is there - turn it off again and repeat the procedure to see if anything has changed. Good luck!

Which fuse runs the lights on the dashboard? fuel gauge and speedometer don't light up!

This is the PARK LAMP fuse . So check this out on the under side of the dash and use a nose plier to pull the fuse out to be replaced by the spare in the box.
If the fuse seems ok, then check the harness, connectors to the dashboard cluster or the lamps within the dash.

Everthing on my dash (speedometer,odometer,fuel

Blown Fuse or fried Circuit board. Take to a local AutoZone, Advance, Murray's, O'reillys or a similar part house for them to check the wiring. I'm assuming the van does not use a mechanical Speedometer or Fuel Gauge.

On the plus side, with no speedometer, your indicated odometer mileage does not increase. Just keep your speed down and your tank full. Kidding, just kidding.

Dash Problems

I've got the same problem and have been researching it on the 'net. Mine dash gauges won't work when the car is cold. Here's the best I've come up with:

1 - go to and read thru the thread. Look at Merittech's answers. His focus is on common shorting issues.

2 - the other common solution discussed around the 'net is that the 'body control module' can be flaky and replacing it also seems to solve the issue.

My intent is to try #1 as soon as I can and then move to #2 as need be (since #1 doesn't involve cash, just time)

Intermittent Speedometer Operation

Replace the speed sensor on the transmission. This controls the speedometer.
