SOURCE: 2006 chevy cobalt woulnt start lock light is on

Are you using the original key that came with the car? The chip in that key may have gone bad. Try using the spare key that should have come with the purchase of the car. You may also be having battery issues. If all else fails....call the people who really know how to rape you...DUM Dum dummmmm....the dealer

SOURCE: dash lights dimmed, car shut off, won"t start

if any of your warning lights came on be fore it died, and if you have no cranking power to start the car i would get the alternator tested or do it your self with a voltage meter. get a jumpstart and the alternator should be putting out 14.8 dc. if not then you need a new one

SOURCE: Dim dashboard lights and problem starting

Could be a loose or dirty battery connection, poor battery, or alternator. Check all the cables and connections to your starter. Clean your battery posts. Have your alternator and battery checked. It sounds like you are either running off just the battery or just the alternator. One of them is not right.

SOURCE: issue with dash lights dimming while driving,

If the battery and alternator tested fine. I would have the charging system rechecked when engine is hot and at high rpm's. This way the checks are being done as if you were driving and driving for a long time. Alternators can work fine when cold but weaken when hot or stop working. This problem is not rare but only is seen occassionly. Unless it was checked at an electrical shop the average shop doesn't run these tests for they don't see the problem often enough to automaticly run them at all times. Good luck and let me know how you make out.

2011 Jeep liberty, wife said her lights on the radio are not working, said she can not see the clock light or stations , but radio still works? I don't think it's a fuse if the radio still plays.


The lights on the radio are dimmed with the instrument panel dimmer control so usually they are fed with a separate 12 volt signal that is separate from the main radio power. It may have a separate fuse but may not. If it's not a fuse it could be a loose connector going to the radio, assuming the rest of the instrument panel lights are working correctly. I suppose it is also possible that the dimmer control has two sections, one for the radio and one for the panel lights, and the section for the radio is bad. Run the dimmer control back and forth stop to stop a few times, push on it etc. to see if that effects it. I suspect it is somewhere in the dimmer circuit.

My dash lights went from dim to off


no other failure> car runs perfect all other electrics perfect.
head lights, parking lights??????

the dash lamps are usually on the park light circuit.
check parking lamps.
check fuses first.

next time say what dash lamps means.
there are a huge number of lamps on the dash
warning lights.
displays
dash parking lamps (back ground glowing for night usage)
called dial lights.
say exactly the lamp that is dead and what it does.

the dash dial lights on all cars have a dimmer control
turn it up,. and bingo the dials glow.

Tail lights don't work and instrument panel won't light up on 2007 corolla


you blew a fuse. check fuses in both fuse boxes..
ahh yes, the IP cluster lamps are dad, but not the idiot warning lights
only the parking lights in the cluster are dead. right.?
and the park-tail, running lights and dash dim lights are all the same.
my guess three is a short on the TAIL fuse, the TAIL fuse blew
and took out: park-tail, running lights and dash dim lights are all the same.
it blew. most are marked tail even thought it runs side lamps and front parking lamps... TAIL is wrong, they are parking. lamps it truth.

Tail lights dont work but the all the other lights do


usa comments, other countries diffr. and for sure canada diffr.
the tail lights are usually , park and are the largest number of lights on the car, even the dash dim lights are park as are the front park lights
so they all out.?

these lights work , keys in pocket.
via a 120amp fuse , to the tailight relay, the combo set to park
energizes said relay and sends 12v to many things
via fuse 48 and 49 and runs cab dim and vanity lamps.
my online page has rear missing.
so get the operators guide, in glove box, read fuse page
see tail and park, fuse, 1 will be blown.

My dash lights and radio lights blink from bright


It sounds like a poor Ground connection, Start by checking the connector that connects to the Instrument Cluster then see if one wire is terminated to the Metal components of the Dash Board. This would be the Master Ground connection for ALL Instrument lights and typically would include any other Lights on the Same Circuit. You will most likely find a loose sheet metal screw making this Ground Connection. With a high resistance connection the lights would be somewhat dim. If they flash between Dim and Bright it is an intermittent connection causing it. Almost always this will be found to be a loose screw connecting the Ground to the Chassis.
