Instrument panel lights are only fully on for left side of panel (gas gauge). Going from left to right they get dimmer to not on at all. Dimmer switch is fully functional. Fuses all ok.

You probably have some bulbs burned out in the instrument cluster. Remove the cluster and check the bulbs.

Instrument Panel lights Are dim on right side of gauges [RPM]only.Maybe bad Headlight Dimmer switch? /Burned bulbs?/ loose wire??? I don't know.


Am I missing something or is everyone answering the wrong question?
If I am reading this right you are having problems in your instrument cluster in your dash not being lit up on one side, correct?
If so it is most likely a burnt out bulb or two.

The Panel Dimmer Control used to brighten the instrument panel also controls the dome lamp. Rotate the thumb wheel fully to the right, past the detent, dome light locks on. Try rotating it to the left.
It's next to your headlight switch. goodluck

I have a 2002 Saturn sc2 coupe, none of the interior instrument cluster/dash lights work. I am havinf a heck of a time finding a fuse box diagram, which fuse controls those lights? The panel doesn't h


The fuse panel is on the side of the dash where the drivers door opens up. The cover is right there. The diagram is on the back of the fuse panel cover. It will say cluster or dash Lts. If fuse is good try turning dimmer dial on left side of dash, it may be turned down just below gas guage

Dash lights, gauge lights, ac lights not working when i turn headlights on


mcdevito75 here, It could be the dimmer section of the headlite switch, when dark outside put head lites on and see if you can turn the head lite switch either to the left or right to get the instrument panel lights on. Turning the headlites on and off could have turned the switch enough to keep the instrument lites from comming on, specially if your not the only driver.

Odomoter light doesnt light up


A cluster is the "instrument cluster". The speedo, gas and temp gauges, tachometer etc. The cluster is serviced as a unit only. You cannot get individual components. You would be way better off sending your cluster to the remanufacturer to be rebuilt and sent back to you. Because if you buy a cluster from some place and give your cluster as a "core" and the one you bought is not the right one, you cannot return it for the right one. You will have to buy another one. They are NOT RETURNABLE. Good luck.
