Are your light controls on the Steering Column or on the Dash? Should be a Small Dial on the Dash or Turning the Dial on the Lights on if on the Column will work.

Dashboard lights will go out randomly. It has done it for short periods before but it did it for 200 miles on hwy in dark.


The sensor is usually located on the top of your dashboard. You might see it if you look into your vehicle through your windshield at your dash.
I have seen( one time ) that a gps was bright enough that it caused the dash lights not to come on because the sensor thought it was light outside.
Or you could have gotten a bad sensor.

Dash lights in my 2003 buick century will not dim and will only come on after I turn dome light on then off


a little complicated but here's the deal. most dash light dimmers are really a rheostat and by what you are describing, the coil portion of the rheostat is 'fried' but this will still allow the non-dimming portion of the coil to operate non-dimmed. the dome light part of this is actually another separate switch that is engaged once the max dash light adjustment is reached, it has little to do with the dimmer what-so-ever. This is at least a $200 (or more) repair from a good shop, could be even pricier at a dealership, not counting the dimmer itself.

When I turn on the headlamps the dash lights go out. Guages all work, radio display disappears also. fuse is good and tried changing headlight switch


Get a test light,and ground the clip,put the tip of the test light on the dash light fuse.Turn the knob to dim,and brighten the dash lights,see if the test light reacts with the dimmer switch.If it does not,then there is a wire jumped to by pass the dash lights somewhere.If the test light dims,and brightens,then there is a wire of going to the dash,or bad connection where the harness clips into the dash.

Dashlights are dim


I know this sounds trivial, but make sure you or someone didn't inadvertently bump the dimmer switch. If you slide the dimmer all the way up and even past the slight little catch so that they are continously on high and still seem dim, there could possibly be an issue with the dimmer switch itself.

Dimmer Switch


To dim your head light, pull your turn signal switch. To dim your dash lights, rotate the switch by your head light switch
