The illumination bulbs in your instrument cluster may have burned out. You have to access the back of the instrument cluster to change them.

    Guess you will have to do some electrical testing to find it then. The power wire for the illuminators would be in the plug for the instr. cluster. I don't know which wire, but it should have power with headlight switch pulled. If power is good, then bad circuit board on your cluster. If no power, check wiring or the hneadlight switch

> Any suggestions or reference to free wiring diagram downloads??

It doesn't seem likely since most of that kind of material is copyrighted works. I think they would take offense to putting it on the web.

You might get some help (or even emailed diagrams) from a fellow owner.

Here's a suggestion. It'll require you to pull some panels off of the inside of your car, but the results will be well worth it in the end. You're going to have to check the wiring to each individual item on your glitch list and see if there are any crushed or severed wires. I had a problem similar to this when I installed aftermarket lights on an older car. It drove me nuts!

Next, you may want to check the relays, not the fuses. I'd be willing to bet your problem is within the relays. If not, then the first suggestion sounds like your likely answer. Good luck, and let me know how it turns out!

Check fuse f3 located in fascia fuse box,below steering wheel just above data link connection 15AMP
Fuse under bonnet f7 also connected to dash/rear lights,but if this blows you would have no indicators as well
good luck barry

Engine cranks no start key on engine off rpm reeds 575


i want to buy comma's so bad.
Engine cranks, but it don't start,
with key on,
engine off rpm reeds 575. (im cluesless here)
reads RPM 575 , not running and how pray tell did you
resolve the 5 at the end? what device showed that?
digital tacho or a scan tool? or dash tach? please tell this.


that is a good input , if true. the tacho on many cars is from
the spark primary signal, and if dead the car will not start.
is this a N.American car/ (unstated?)

the first checks (we go from easy to harder, and more tools)
1:got spark?
2: got fueling if spark is good, the ECU cuts fuel if it even suspects bad spark is true.
never look for bad fueling if the ECU reports bad spark.
that takes a scan tool to see what the ECU thinks, and sees.
got a scan tool they only cost $7, here.

If engine compression is at spec. W.O.T.
and spark is good.
then test fuel works all above is good,(mostly), if test fuel works
and it don't start up and stay running, with a fast right foot.
then the fueling system parts are bad.
this works for carb cars or EFI , this part is no different.
old school to new.

see scotty do it.

Dash and radio lights don't work at night. They are on during the day. 2003 Chev Impala. Have checked all the fuses.


The same thing happens on my 2003 Impala. I found that my dimmer switch has an intermittent failure where sometimes the dash lights go out even with the headlights on.
If I wiggle the dimmer just right, the dash, radio, steering wheel, door locks, and every other light comes on (when the headlights are on). My fix was to mount my Garmin on the steering column in front of the speedometer so when the lights go out I know how fast I'm going. A replacement dimmer (or bypassing the current one and adding a resistor) should take care of it.

It is a FB series Ford Ute. The lights showing the speedometer etc. do not work so you cannot see how fast you are going at night time. Can you advise how to fix?


Check fuses first. Then check wether the bulb on the speedo is blown. If not then the wiring/switch may need to be replaced. If you haven't done auto-electrical work before then you should probably get someone who has to do it.

My dash lights want come on and my left brack light want come on and my right blinker want come on.


1st off the right blinker,does it blink fast or not at all if it blinks fast, check the bulbs if it is not blinking and the dash light also don't work the multifunction switch could be bad(turnsignal,light switch) if your other break light is working start by checking the bulbs take the verified good one and try it in the other side if the bulbs are good check the fuses under dash and under hood carefully
