SOURCE: Replacing dash lights

You may be able to reach the bulbs from the back of the instrument panel, you will need to remove any lower panels that block access, if they can't be removed from the back then you will have to R&R the instrument cluster assy and any other unit that has defective bulbs, make sure you get the correct repacement bulbs, they may look the same but have diffwerent luminosity ratings, wrong bulb will be to dim or to bright and hot burning, this can damage the bulb socket, check your owners manual for more info.

Check under the dash below the cluster/dash area for a disconnected/broken wire.

SOURCE: my car starts but after a while dies waht can be

Hello! You're symptoms sound very much like a common problem associated with the fuel pump resistor. The GTP engine has a two speed fuel pump. There are two relays that control the fuel pump via the PCM module. The fuel pump relay and fuel pump hi-speed relay. Tied into the hi-speed relay is a fuel pump resistor that may go bad.

Symptoms vary but primarily the engine will start but die in a matter of seconds due to insufficient fuel pressure.

Here is a picture of the relay - which is located in the fuse box in the engine compartment:

What you can do to both diagnose this and either narrow it down to this or disqualify it as the culprit is remove relay #15, and bend out the tab labeled "85", and then reinstall the relay. If this does solve your problem, then you need to replace the Fuel Pump Resistor. Doing this will bypass the resistor, and place the fuel pump in "high" speed mode at all times. Once you have replaced the resistor, you need to bend the tab back to its normal position and replace the relay.
NOTE: while this may be a helpful diagnosis tool, and provide a temporary fix - doing this procedure for a prolonged period of time can lead to fuel pump failure. Use this at your own risk.


Hope this helps and good luck!

How to fix the Dash lights?


It's probably just your fuse. The fuse for your dash lights also controls your taillights. Bill.

Inside dash lights and tail lights won't turn on in my '95 Isuzu Rodeo, what can I do?


My 97 Rodeo had the same problem. No Tail lights, no. Dash lights. There is also an annoying buzzer that goes with the set telling you the lights are on, there is no key in the ignition and your door is open. (you don't notice it when it's gone but you sure notice it when it's back)
The Fuse (taillight Illum) was good, The Light relay under the hood was good and all bulbs were good.
What fixed this problem was replacing the tail light relay which is located in a panel just to the left of the brake pedal also called the kick panel.Inside there are 3 relays. I replaced the one in the middle and got everything to work.
If you need to identify the relay you can put your hand over it and then turn the lights on and off. The correct relay should click. Mine was the middle one.
Hope this helps someone because it stumped me for months.

DASH LIGHTS AND TAILLIGHTS NOT WORKING


There seems to be a unwritten rule that the tail lights are on the same wire as the dash board lights ... if you have no dash board lights, neither do you have tail lights. There is a blown fuse somewhere, your job is to find the wire causing the trouble and it is likely at a most inconvenient place near a hinge.

Good luck with your repair.

hi mate if you keep blowing fuses disconnect your front fog lights and try again if your dash lights work then a bulb has failed and gone to earth if it still blows the fuse disconnect the dahs pod (clocks) and reconect the fog lights if it does not blow the fuse the it probably is the dash pod or something associated with the pod hope it helps
