Instrument light dimmer inop

The instrument lights only come on in the "full on" (turn the overhead interior light on mode).

All the interior lights work, headlamps, backup other symptom.

I checked the manual for a possible fuse connection, but didn't find that specific link.

Sounds like the dimmer is at fault. It's a dealer item, but call them and order one. Should be sold seperately, and isn't too expensive. Ask for an instrument panel dimmer (switch) for your particular year, etc. Thanks, TT

    My inside light stays on how do i fix this problem

    Check the instrument panel dimmer switch. There should be a control to make your instrument panel lights brighter or dimmer. If it's turned all the way to one side the interior lights come on and stay on. Also check all of your door switches to make sure none are grounded. When the door switch grounds the light comes on.

    No interior lights

    There may be a dome light override switch that keeps the overhead light off when the doors are opened. Consult owners manual or see dealer.

    Instrument cluster bulb is out. how do i replace

    It may not be a bulb, as the instrument cluster usually has a number of bulbs and they probably didn't all blow at once. Pulling instrument clusters can be touchy and may not be for the average "shadetree mechanic" however, typically there are a few screws above the cluster going into the dash pad and a few hidden behind the trim panels below the cluster.
