You have a bad Alternator, the charging voltage is too low at idle so when you get to 2500 RPM its enough to take the lights off. Good Luck contact me if you need more help.

What is the fuse number for the dashboard lights on a 2007 Ford Focus 3 door hatchback?

Principles of Operation
The instrument cluster and panel illumination consists of dimmable and non-dimmable illumination components. The dimmable illumination is controlled by the instrument panel dimmer switch, which allows the brightness level of the backlights to be adjusted to the customer preferences. With the parking lamps ON, the instrument panel dimmer switch uses electronic circuitry to provide a variable pulse width modulated (PWM) output to the instrument panel and all applicable switches depending on the driver-controlled level of intensity. The headlamp switch backlighting consists of 2 constantly illuminated LED bulbs that are powered by separate circuits. Battery voltage is supplied to the first bulb when the ignition switch is in the RUN position. Battery voltage is supplied to the second bulb with the parking lamps ON. The non-dimmable illumination allows for full intensity dependant on the ignition switch position.

Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer concern.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical or electrical damage.

Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
  • Headlamp switch
  • Instrument panel dimmer switch
  • Circuitry
  • Connector(s)
  • Headlamp switch
  • Instrument panel dimmer switch
  • Illumination source(s)

  1. If an obvious cause for an observed or reported concern is found, correct he cause (if possible) before proceeding to the next step.
  1. If the cause is not visually evident, verify the symptom and GO to Symptom Chart .

The EPS light has come on my dashboard and the steering has become very heavy. what does this mean

The electronic power steering (EPS) Warning Light is located on the instrument panel. This light illuminates when the EPS is malfunctioning. When this light is lit, your steering may be a little heavier, and you should schedule an inspection as soon as possible. Tip The EPS Warning Light briefly illuminates when the car is first turned on. The light is only a problem if it stays lit for an extended period.

2001 mitsubishi montero sport 4wd battery and brake lights are on.

I doubt it is the belt because if the belt is slipping you should hear it.
The alternator could be about to crash and not charging at lower speeds.
You would check alternator output to find out.
The battery and brake warning lights are on the same circuit.

Rpm backlight out

You must remove the cluter of gauges and replace the light bulb.
    • 1Turn off the engine of the Taurus, and open the hood.
    • 2Remove the negative ("-") battery terminal from the battery in the engine compartment using a socket wrench.
    • 3.
      Insert a slotted screwdriver between the covers on the steering wheel column, and pry upwards. Pull off both the upper and the lower covers.
    • 4Position the steering wheel as low as it can go.
    • 5Remove the two screws above the Taurus' instrument panel and the four screws below it using a Phillips screwdriver.
    • 6Insert a slotted screwdriver into the dashboard trim, and pull upwards to pry it off the vehicle. Disengage the eight snap clips from the dashboard trim by hand, and pull it out of the vehicle.
    • 7Uninstall the two securing screws from the instrument panel with a Phillips screwdriver.
    • 8Pull the instrument panel towards you, and reach behind it to disconnect the two wiring plugs. Pull the instrument panel out of the Taurus.
    • 9Replace any burned-out bulbs from the underside of the instrument panel with new bulbs. Pull the old bulb off, and push the new bulb in.
    • 10Reassemble the instrument panel and dashboard trim in the reverse order of removal. Reconnect the battery, and close the hood.

Dashboard Instrument cluster does not work.

there are 2 large terminal plugs with the wiring for all the instruments that are plugged into the back of that panel. make sure they are snug and in place. You reach in and under but it may easier to "simply" remove the cluster. 4 screws hold it in place accessible form underneath and with a long phillips screwdriver and lighting.

I have a 2003 GMC Savana Van. The brake light came on and the brake alarm rings continously but will stop if I hit a bump (and then start again if I hit another one). I'm thinking a loose wire but several...

If someone took the time to look at the electrical schematic you will see several grounds in the circuit My first place I would go would be to check all the Grounds and Connections for the Brake Fluid level control, Brake Warning Indicator
The Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) illuminates the brake warning indicator when one or more of the following occurs:
  • The body control module (BCM) detects that the park brake is engaged. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the BCM requesting illumination.
  • The electronic brake control module (EBCM) detects a low brake fluid condition. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the EBCM requesting illumination.
  • The electronic brake control module (EBCM) detects a closed brake pressure differential switch. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the EBCM requesting illumination.
  • The EBCM detects an ABS malfunction which disables dynamic rear proportioning (DRP) . The IPC receives a class 2 message from the EBCM requesting illumination.
  • The IPC detects a closed power brake booster alarm switch and closed power brake booster fluid flow alarm switch. The IPC illuminates the brake warning indicator and sends a class 2 message to the radio requesting the brake warning alarm.
  • The IPC performs the bulb check at the start of each ignition cycle. The brake warning indicator illuminates for approximately 3 seconds before turning OFF.
  • The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the BCM or with the EBCM.
Driver Information Indicators and Messages
The following indicators are used to inform the driver of several different factors.

Brake Warning Indicator
The Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) illuminates the brake warning indicator when the following occurs.
  • The Body Control Module (BCM) detects that the park brake is engaged. The IPC receives a serial data message from the BCM requesting illumination. The brake warning indicator flashes at a rate of approximately twice per second when the park brake is engaged.
  • The EBCM detects a low brake fluid condition or base brake pressure differential and sends a serial data message to the IPC requesting illumination.
  • The IPC performs the bulb check.
  • The EBCM detects an ABS-disabling malfunction which also disables Dynamic Rear Proportioning (DRP) and sends a serial data message to the IPC requesting illumination.

Here is a description of how the system works But i would check my Grounds and connections
Contact me if you need any more information Ill be glad to help
