Its just some bunt out bulbs. Depending on the year of your car, you either can just reach behind the dash and replace the bulbs, or more likely the instrument cluster will need to be removed and the bulbs replaced. A general rule of thumb on this type of repair, do em all and save another headache later. Like the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Consult a repair manual for proper removal instructions of the instrument cluster.

SOURCE: my tail lights and the lights on my instrument panel went out.

The first thing is check your manual for fuse locations, then check all the fuses. because if all the fuses are good then its a wire harness problem
and you will either have to take it to a dealer or a shop that specializes
in electrical.

How to fix the light in the instrumental panel on my 1999 ford tauras


Most auto instrument panels are back-lit with a light bulbs, that just twist in/out. They are very simple to replace, its getting to the instrument cluster that can be the bear. Look on-line on how to remove your instrument cluster and get to your bulb and you can get it fixed. I would say on a 1 to 10 difficulty scale its probably a 4.5, if you did it yourself. Good Luck

I had the same problem. Abs light would come on and I would lose all dash instruments. Hit a bump on the road and abs light would go off and dash would come back on. What I did to fix problem, lol I slaped the dash just to the right of instrument panel and it all came back to life. There seems to be a short there, and I slaped it back 3 times in a week and now for the last month it has stayed on.
