SOURCE: headlights turned on instrument lights

i bet it was an aftermarket radio and you cut the plug off, well the dash lights run through the radio so youll have to get a plug in adapter and put the old plug back on then wire the adapter plug it in and everything will work if you threw it away then you will have to get a wiring diagram and fix your wiring

I just installed a new stereo and now my running lights are always on even when I turn headlight switch off. It is a U.S. car and everything else is working fine.


There is a wire that attaches to the radio that turns on the radio lights together with the park/running lights. You must've attached that wire to a full time power source if the running lights are on all the time, right after a radio install. Recheck your radio wiring.

Speedometer, gas gauge and instrument lights stopped working but radio and tach work fine. defroster fan runs on high and can not be turned off because no buttons on the dash work. car runs fine.


First use a test light and check all fuses. Then check and make sure brightness control is up all the way for the dash lights. If everything there is fine check under the dash for all ground connections and make sure they are clean and tight. If all this is good you need to check the headlight/dash lights switch. If it is okay then you have a problem in the dash itself and the instrument panel will have to be removed and the wiring and printed circuits checked.

Dash lights do not work 1996 Chev S-10 P/U


it must have reset body control module. as for lights in dash bulbs could be blown or loose only way to tell is to remove cluster assembly.
