Question about 1994 Volvo 850

1 Answer

Dashboard Lights Going, going, going

The lights that show my speed and other information was out when I got in the car the other evening, after about 5 minutes 1/2 of them came on. Then they were off the next time I got in the car at night. I gave the dashboard a little hand slam to see if that would help, nothing. Is it a fuse? Where are the fuses located?

    Yeah, I found the dimmer and tried that first. The only other warning lights that are on are for my brake light...not my main ones...and a check engine light that's been coming on for years. A number of mechanics have turned it off, it just keeps coming back on. So...no all other warning lights are not on. My dashboard light for all the gauges is the one that's dimming, or intermittantly coming 1/2 way on (right side of gauges). So...fuse?

There is a dimmer for the dashboard lights on the dash. Make sure it is up. If all the other warning lights come on on the dash as well, then your ignition switch needs replaced.

How do i fix my dashboard lights on my 1986 chevy nova?


Turn the light switch on and check your tail lights. Back then the tail and dash lights work on the same circuit inside the headlight switch so if one was out so was the other. If this is the case you need a new headlight switch. If not, there should be a fuse in your panel marked "instr". that's for the dash lights. Hope this helps.

Hi I have a warning light that is showing on my dashboard. it is a retangle box with 3 squiggly lines going up on top of the box. can you tell me what it is? it is a us wagon accord. And the words brake...


Hi,
This warning lamp is an indicator to show that your exhaust temperature is getting hot, but if it is staying on even when the engine is cold then you have a faulty sensor which will need to be replaced. The brake lamp light is telling you there is a blown light bulb in one of your brake lights, so get someone to stand on the brake pedal with the ignition on and check that they are all working correctly.
Let me know if you need more information.
Thanks
Jason
