Check all your fuses, one at a time with a continuity tester. Replace each fuse before you remove another fuse so you will not put the fuse in the wrong place. Also, if you find a bad fuse which you can purchase at an automotive parts place, make sure you replace the bad fuse with the correct amperage fuse. Do not go up on the replacement fuse amperage. The amperage number is on the fuse handle. You can buy a very inexpensive continuity tester at radio shack and they will teach you how to use it. Good luck.

SOURCE: dash lights

possibility of a dimmer switch malfunction, did you check all the fuses under the dash and also under the hood. check thuroughly because you might have missed one.

And where your dimmer switch is, us a stanely knife on the corner and it should pop out.. peice of cake, the dimmer has 2 wires in it so you can take a volts tester to see if it gets current when your head lights are on. Alos if it is getting current only on 1 side you can bypass it for another test by just running a wire from both points.

Does your other dash peices light up like your ac controlls and your clock?
if so it might be part of the dash cluster has just burnt out, bulb wise and 3-4 screws around the cluster and it pulls out also. All hondas are like legos and they come apart Very simpley.

If it isnt either of those, then you might have a bad MFS witch is shot for multi function switch and it is the lever that controlls your lights. Its expensive to replace though and is a hastle to remove from the steering coloum to test.

Get yourself a volts, oms tester and check the dimmer switch 1st.
if thats alright then test with the wire.
if thats alright then check the back lights behind your cluster for burtn out bulbs,
and if all that looks good your down to the fuses might just look good, and the MFS

hope that narrows it down for you

Good Luck!

SOURCE: back lights or dash light don't not work

I had the exact same problem with my 94 Honda Accord Lx. The fuse for the dash lights and tail lights blew and when I replaced it, it blew again. After a couple more tries, we gave up and took it to a honda repair place and they did a diagnostic for about $50. What they found was the wiring to the trunk was frayed and touching the other wires. They said its a common problem after years of opening and closing the trunk. I had noticed that the trunk light on the dash would sometimes flicker so it makes sense to me. They removed the wiring harness for the trunk, and replaced the fuse and now the lights work fine. And to replace the trunk wiring harness would have cost $60 but I can live without lights in the trunk for now. I am just happy to be able to drive at night again. Hope this helped.

I couldve sworn there was a switch. if not, probably the dimmer switch is bad. Take it out and verify operation with a multimeter. Also verify the switch has 12V

1999 honda accord lx sedan removed stock dash no dash lights after aftermarket stereo wired in random red wire leading from stock stero to car would love to be able to have dash lights at night everything...


Most cars have the dash light wire in the wires going to the radio. Did you use a store bought adapter the plugs into the honda wire harness to connect the radio? Idf not you may have the dash light wire grounded with the radio and it's blown the dash light fuse. first unplug the radio. then go though the fuse and find the blown one under the dash fuse panel. Replace the fuse.( if their not uswed up the fuse panel has extra fuses and thier marked as spares). try the dash lights, if their workingyou need to find the wire at the radio and make sure it"s not being connected to ground. You might need to use a test light to look for power and when you find it turn the lights on and off the be shure that you have the right wire. If it's still not working you may need to investagate the dash light dimmer swich that turns the brightness up and down to the dash lights. The overload as the radio was connected possibly wrong can blow this switch instead of blowing the fuse. The swich pries out of the dash and you can test it withthe test light. One wire is ground ones the power from the dash panel fuse coming from the headlight switch and the other is the lights thems selves. This switch it'self lights in the dark, so it has a ground for it's bulb.

1997 eclipse dash lights not working i know there are two fuse boxes i dont know which one o look at and which fuse it is help?


Your tail lights, license plate ights, and side marker lights are protected by the same fuse that supplies power to the dash lights. Hint: if your other lights are working, the fuse is NOT blown and you don't have to spend time looking for it.

The next thing that deserves mention is the fact that the dash lights are controlled by the dash light rheostat (dimmer switch). Make sure you don't have them turned off with the switch.

If after reading the above, you still think you need to find the fuse, it is fuse #5 (15 Amp) located in the dedicated fuse and relay box in the engine compartment. It is most likely marked "Taillight Relay".

My turn signal won't lit when activate and my brake light also wont also but is illuminate. The Top Brake light do light up when but only when the lights are turned on manual setting if they are on...


possible multifunction switch gone bad for turn signal problem. do headlihgts come on in a dark setting on automatic or not? if they don't come on when it is dark then most likely bad light sensor in top of dash or maybe unplugged if recent dash work has been done.

1995 Ford Windstar NO Dash Lights no radio no tail lights


I would check the wiring on the radio. Lot of cars (especially nowadays) the electricity like the lights and raido is hooked on there. If any of the wires went bad, or maybe even the radio would make it cause that.

So just remove the pannel around the radio

unbolt the radio

Pull the radio out and check all the wiring.

If the wires are not bad, maybe check to see if the radio is working.

If this dont help, I might know something else
