    Look for the dash dimmer control, and rotate it. Sounds like the dimmer is turned low. Please advise what you find.

SOURCE: Dash lights go off when head lights are turned on.

Your car is perfectly fine. Your dash dimmer is turned all the way down. Your dash dimmer automatically turns on with your headlights. You need to locate your dash dimmer and turn it up.( will be easy to locate with owners manual).

SOURCE: no electrical power after replacing battery

I've had similar problems with my cars, and everytime it was a bad ground or power wire, or corrosion on the terminals. Get a wire brush and clean both battery connecters..even a little corrosion can cause a no power situation. If you have a test light, connect the ground of the test light to the negative cable of the battery and touch light to the positive cable...if the test light doesn't light up, then you have a break or lose connection in your ground wire. Trace the battery ground to the engine block and clean that also...the smallest thing can interupt power...hope this helps..

SOURCE: power to everything including sterio but dash while key is out of ignition and will not start when key is in ignition

Might be your ignition switch, or a fusable link from you battery. The switch makes more sense but i have no idea why it would screw up while you were driving. Usuall y that happens when you're starting it or shutting it off.

SOURCE: Radio and horn will not work

I had the same exact issue today on my 86 Fiero. The Radio and Horn stopped working same time. There is a 20 amp fuse that is marked for the Horn but no mention of the radio. It is in the middle of the Fuse box. 86 -88 should have the same fuse box. ( If you reference the Chilton book they say the fuse is for Horn Cigarette lighter etc. but again no mention of the radio) I just happened to check this fuse (It was blown) and sure enough everything came back. Hope this helps......

SOURCE: Toyota 4runner gate window, wiper, and keyless entry not working

make sure the back window is all the way up then try the wiper, if it still does not work then it is a sensor for the rear window (about $30.00) if you installed it yourself

Turned key..nothing happened, dead, no dash lights interior lights or mileage, released hood button, dash instruments came on, turned key car started..while driving radio goes on and off as well as the...


Check ALL Power and Ground connections coming off the Battery to circuit anchor points. Ignition and Services fuses for a Power supply. If all proves ok, then go to the Main Ignition control Relay and check the condition of the Pins and Recepticles. That is where your apparent problem may eventually be. But travel the initial route first, looking and feeling for Loose or Dirty connecting points.

I have a 2006 dodge caravan the dash goes nuts when driveing down the road


Could be an ignition switch on the fritz. My wifes 05 was possessed, and would turn on its radio when no one was around and no key in ignition.

Dash lights were wacky as well.

do your lights work if yes check to see if you hear fuel pump running when you turn ignition key on.if yes you got ignition problems.if you hear nothing problem is fuel pump or bad relay.if your dash lights and head lights not working you have alternator problems.

How do I program my key for my 2006 Chevy Impala?


Add Duplicate Key (PK3 or PK3+ key)
1. Insert an existing key into the ignition cylinder.
2. Turn the ignition cylinder to ON (RUN) and back to OFF.
3. Remove the existing key and, within fifteen seconds, insert the new key
and turn it to ON (RUN).
4. The security light will light up for two seconds to indicate success in programming
the key into the vehicle.
Originate New Master Key (PK3 or PK3+ key)

1. Insert new key into ignition cylinder and turn it to the ON (RUN) position.
The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten minutes.
2. When the security light goes out, you have one minute to start the next
step. Turn the ignition cylinder to OFF and then back to the ON (RUN)
position. The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten
more minutes.
3. When the security light goes out, you have one minute to start the next
step. Turn the ignition cylinder to OFF and then back on the ON (RUN)
position. The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten
more minutes.
4. After the security light has gone off the third time, the key has been programmed
into the vehicle’s computer and will operate the car. It has replaced ALL the
previous electronic key codes and is the ONLY key programmed into the
vehicle’s computer.
