You probably have a wiring short, and unless you know your way around under the dash, you'd do better taking it to a repair shop that has an employee very knowledgeable specifically in electronic gauge troubleshooting and repair. Save yoursef the time and grief.
Get a wiring harness connector for your 1998 GM car - THEN carefully follow each wire color on the harness. Do NOT connect anything to the GM orange wire except "Memory". Do NOT connect anthing to the harness for "Lights" or "Dash" or "DIM" - you will blow fuses. Only connect the Power, the memory and the speakers - period. Then you'll be safe.
if its the original radio that came with the car,no its a bad lamp because most o.e.m. radios lights are fed off the dash board lamps that way they dim at night when you turn on the headlights,probably a burned out lamp
hey ! guyz i dnt knw for sum reason my dash board lights are not working, i have checkd the fuse and the bulbs buh they are perfect can ny1 tell me whatz wrong wiv ma 1998 honda civic dashboard lights.
I have had the exact same problem. There is an ignition lock that probably went off. There is a fuse box under the hood. The fuse that says ignition on it pull it out and put it back in. This should reset the ignition lock. Its a safety feature because the car thinks that someone was trying to tamper with it.
I took my pathfinder to U-HAUL and asked them to check the towing lights. There was a pinched wire by my tail light and they cut it and changed it out for me, it was $5. I am so glad that I didnt take it to Nissan. My second step was going to be getting a new dimmer switch..but the guy who worked on my car said that wouldnt be the problem. He also told me that replacing a fuse that kept blowing out was dangerous and after the first time to get it checked out. Learn something new every day!!
