Instrument panel not working on dashboard

I have fitted a new battery and now the instrument panel is not working. I've checked all the fuses. Headlights etc are working and other electrics just not the instrument panel. Any ideas please?

    It's a Fiat Stilo 1.9 diesel 53reg. There seems to be power everywhere.

SOURCE: Instrument panel went dead

Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).

SOURCE: instrument panel will not come on

Welcome to the club! Have a look at the "blank dashboard" posts. Hundreds of cars out there with same fault, Renault will charge £500-£700, some firms do "mail order" repairs for £200 - and please email Watchdog, Renault need to start sorting this out! Lots of us are doing the same. Try ECUtesting.com or Cluster Repairs UK and have a look at renaultcustomer.com/ or threads on howtomendit.com.

check for any circuit brakers near the fuse box, if theres any of them reset them by introducing a paperclip in the small hole and press, you will hear a click.

For expedition 99, my dashboard light doesn't work anymore, I've tried finding what fuse to replace but unable to locate problem.


There are two fuse's , one is in the under hood fuse /relay center or as ford calls it Battery junction block and one in the central junction block Blown fuse(s): Battery junction box (BJB) Fuse 6 (15A) and central junction box (CJB) Fuse 18 (5A ,on the lids are the # locations .Are you saying that nothing lights , radio, heater controls , back lighting for the instrument cluster . No check engine light, or any other warning lights . Do all the gauges work ? CJB is located left side of dash . Check the fuse's ! 25309735-p0bbf4gezpmb21wjojjnal1o-3-3.gif

2000 Celica GT AC and dashboard lights & gauges out suddenly (Together)


Here's how it should work: Power for the instrument panel comes from the 7.5A ECU-B fuse in the instrument panel junction box (I/PJB). A WHT/BLK wire from the instrument panel is grounded in that box. The I/PJB also contains a 5A WARNING fuse which is connected to the instrument panel by a RED/YEL wire. The 5A BKUP LAMP fuse supplies power on a RED/BLU wire to the vehicle speed sensor (combination meter) and a LT GRN wire from sensor is connected to the instrument panel. In addition, a LT GRN/RED wire from the instrument panel connects to the ECM. The YEL/GRN and RED/BLU wires from the instrument panel connect to the body ECU. There are three ground wires: two WHT/BLK and one BRN

My dash lights aren't working. I've checked all the fuses and they are fine.


Hi Rblack, As the fuses are all okay the most likely cause is that the bulbs that illuminate the instrument panel have blown. If you look at the instrument panel I'm sure there are some screws which hold it in. Remove those and gently pull the instrument cluster forward and check the lights for operation. Regards John

My Skoda Octavia '97 lighter don't work.


The lighter socket has a separate fuse. I'm not really sure where the cockpit fuse panel is located in your model (didn't have myself), but I'm sure it should be documented in the owners manual.
Later models had the fuse panel at the left dashboard side which is accessible from the opened drivers door. (UK: possibly mirrored) I can imagine the early octavia still has the fuse panel under the dash either at drivers or passenger side. This was usual for a long time.
