Check to see if the reostat for your dome/dash lights is not turned all the way down.The headlight switch controls the dash lights.

SOURCE: Tail and dash lights do not work. fuse is good

I just read somewhere that there may be another fuse box in the trunk, depending on your model. I'm trying to diagnose and fix this exact problem right now. I've already replaced the dimmer switch with one from the junkyard, but it didn't work. If you figure this out please let me know!

SOURCE: No tail lights on 1991 Chevy Silverado. fuse is good

sounds like a broken wire in the harness. look around the bumper area,sometimes along the frame. may have to peel back some tape covering. also if you have a trailer harness look closely at those.

SOURCE: 98 ford windstar no dash and tail lights

you have to check all fuses with a test light both fuse boxes under hood and under dash... if good next to look for is the light switch itself... has any radio work been done to the lately... if so alot of times hooked up wrong will blow park fuse as one of the wires to radio is the park voltage to tell radio to dim down some

SOURCE: Dash lights will not work?

Check that your tailights/parking lights are working (not the headlights) as this fuse and relay feeds all the instument lights too.... Fuse 15amp TAIL & Tailight Relay

If not then check:
The rheostat (also known as the dimmer switch) may be faulty
as it controls all the illumination of all the backlight bulbs and other dimable switches/indicators.

In general bulbs all together draw a fair amount of current so it is possible that the wiring or ground at the major supply junction feeders has failed but that is a less common problem.

So check the rheostat dimmer wiring area first as all illumination power goes through it.

There is further simple testing we can do with the three wires at the rheostat you can check the entire illumination system.
If you jumper the white/blk to the white/blk all the illumination lights should come on (that means the rheostat is bad).

Or use a voltmeter and measure the green rehostat wire to ground it should be 12volts (if not time to check the fuse, relay and wiring)

If not then finally declare the instrument panel faulty (like burned up circuit board trace).

Note of interest: the rheostat also controls (dims) other switches not associated with the instrument cluster such as the cigarette lighter bulb and hazard switch and radio player and A/C control switch. So if those are dimming but not the instrument panel backlights then yes the instrument cluster needs fixing or a very close wiring inspection.

Why did the dash lights, the interior light , the radio light go out?


If the fuse is good, check the connections for the fuse. Might have to crimp them and/or burnish them.

How do you fix the dash and running lights?


With what info you've given,it would not have been the light switch or the rheostat for changing dash light brighting.Since both the dash lights and running lights are not working,first thing I'd have done is replace the fuse,since both are o the same fuse.Kinda like when my Toyota wipers would stop,the overdrive stopped working too.Both were on the same fuse.Replace the fuse and good to go.I carry fuses with me.

1988 pathfinder no dash lights no revers lights no tail lights no gaiges


If they all stopped working at the same time then it is probably a fuse or possibly 2. Check your fuse panels in the dash and under the hood. The dash lights and gauges should be a fuse labeled instrument cluster or guages, it is probably blown. The other fuse to look for will be the tail light fuse. This is where I would begin.

My 1995 honda accord, dash light stop working, tail lights and brake lights all at the same time. what is the problem and how hard is it to replace the part.


I'm having the same problem on my 1995 Honda Accord.  I hit a bump hard last night, and my dash lights, tail-lights, license-plate lights, and the bell which 'bing's when the door is open and the headlights are on all stopped working.  The fuse for "Small lights" under the hood was blown.  Replaced it, turned on headlights, and it blew again instantly.
I'm guessing that I have a wire crossed (possibly inside the bulb itself) in the dash somewhere;  I checked the taillights and license-plate liights already.

Good luck!  I'll let you know how my fix goes.

Running lights brake and dash/interior lights dont work, head lights blinkers reverse lights work checked fuses all were good. is there some other fuse besides the ones in the dash? or is there something...


I was going to say the dash and running lights run off a singular fuse, replace it just in case, also check under the hood, there is another control board under there. possibly a relay might be at fault, worst case, the light switch is faulty. Good luck
