Dash lights not working

The backlights on the insturment cluster of my 2003 Chrysler 300m keep going out on their own. It started over a year ago and was very intermitent (once every few months for just a few minutes) but lately has been almost every trip almost the whole time. Last night they came on when the car started and then almost immediately began flashing several times until going out and never coming back on.

    I have a 99 Chrysler 300M and my dash lights and stereo lights do the same as you described. It is very intermittent. I thought it may be a fuse, but cannot identify a fuse that if replaced would affect both the dashboard and stereo lights.



    Good luck with finding a remedy to the problem.

SOURCE: 2001 Chrysler 300M Engine Overheated

I had an overheating problem with my 2001 300M....removed the thermostat two years ago and have never had a problem since....it does get cold in the Winter but warms up enough so you don't freeze. I don't think most service centers know that the thermostat goes in BACKWARDS from most cars...due to the coolant coming through a small line through the head....which often gets clogged up...thus the thermostat doesn't work properly. I just decided to remove the thermostat and have had no issues with the car driving it that way.

Change the Cam Position Sensor.. It done the same thing on mine. The sensor runs about
40. to 60.00 at most parts stores Your gonna have to take off the upper intake or plenum to
get access to it. Top of the engine right side, you'll see it

Sounds like you need a starter, or you have a loose wire somewhere under the hood.

SOURCE: Dash lights flicker and or go out on 04 Chrysler Sebring Conv.

On thedash of my 2003 sedan sebring ,My dash ilumination lights for the speed,temp,tack\rpm and fuel are unlit.
I found that there is a paper thin plastic across and behind all four of these gauges which lights up all four gauges,if working correctly, There is a very poor connection to this thin film lighting system ,basicaly a wire terminal used as a staple and that very well could be your problem.
It as far as I know would require whole gauge assembly replacement! because dealers dont sell such small portions of some assemblies!
I myself will attempt to crimp this poor connection on my car without damaging thin film! there are no bulbs for those four gauges too iluminate!

Insturment panel is not working


An instrument cluster is the collection of gauges, dials and lights right above the steering wheel that tell you what's going on in your vehicle.
Generally, your car's instrument cluster will last the lifetime of the car and you'll never have a problem with any of them. However, when one of them fail, you'll have a problem that ranges from mildly annoying (the engine lights up and doesn't turn off) to inconvenient (the gas gauge doesn't register) to dangerous (the oil indicator doesn't work). Some of the more common failures include:
  • Erratic or non-functional gauges & inaccurate readings.
  • LCD not Stuck or fluttering needles on gauges
  • Burned out indicator lights
  • Burned out/dark spot backlighting
  • Loss of LCD display or erratic operation (number 8 showing as 0

2006 Honda CR-V; had front driver's side headlamp bulb replaced and car battery replaced and now the odometer backlight doesn't work -- a related issue or separate and is it expensive to fix?


You can replace the instrument cluster bulb with a regular halogen bulb, or use T5 led bulbs that come in a variety of colors (white, blue, etc.) They are inexpensive and will last a lot longer than the regular halogen bulbs.

Replacing the faulty bulbs isn't too hard for DIY.

2003 Kia Optima - Dashboard Lights not working.


if you have aftermarket lights hooked up to the dash light it has been known to smoke the rheostat that controls the dimmer. I would also check the other fuses, sometimes the cluster refers to the guages themselves and not the lights that illuminate them

I had the same problem with my 2004 yukon. It seems all the gauges in the insturment cluster are known to go bad from 2003-2006 in GMC and Chevys. The deaerships are trying to sell you a new instrument cluster which is pretty costly if your warrenty is up. I repaired the circuit board on my insturment cluster myself and everything is working fine now. Since hearing abouth this problem I have started repairing the insturment cluster as a side business. If your vehicle is out of warrenty and your intersted shoot me an e-mail (ryanfeider@hotmial.com).
