    I am having the same problem with the same vehicle. There is a recall for the tail lamps that I am getting done tomorrow, although I don't know if that will solve the dash light issue. Any one have any experience with both of these problems occuring at the same time?

SOURCE: VW Jetta GL 2000, AC - Heater Fan stopped

is your jetta a 1998 or 2000? the site is showing two different years. here are instructions for a 2000 jetta gl. there is a blower motor resistor in this system. there is also a fuse integral to the resistor. it's all one unit, have to replace the whole thing. here's the step by step:
1.remove the glove box (what you need to get to is behind it)
2.disconnect the electrical connector from the blower resistor
3.disconnect the heater fan electrical connector
4.remove the blower resistor
5.remove the blower motor downward
and to reinstall
1.install the blower motor
2.install the blower resistor
3.connect the electrical connector to the heater fan
4.connect the electrical connector to the blower resistor
5.install the glove box
and of course anytime you work on anything electrical you are supposed to disconnect the battery negative terminal before you start, be warned that you might lose your radio station presets when you disconnect battery
hope that helps

SOURCE: DRL WORK BUT NO TAIL LIGHTS OR DASH LIGHTS AT NIGHT

I FIXED THIS ISSUE IN MY CASE. NOT TOO HARD IN A FEW MINUTES.

I didn't know there was another fuse box in the crevice of opening the passenger door. It helped when I found that out in the owners manual.

Narrowed things down by checking to see if I had rear parking/running lights since I heard this was also the dash light fuse.
*I did not have these rear parking lights coming on, just when I would apply the brake*

Sure enought that 15A fuse was blown, its in the passenger side box. I heard in my searching for a fix that this fuse also controlled dash lights. Sure enough it does! ( I have 2000 base model 3.4 impala)

SO, Things worked after that, UNTIL I MOVED MY ASH TRAY IN AND OUT A FEW TIMES!!

The dash lights flickered a bit when I moved the ashtray in and out and after a few times I heard a POP! and no more dash lights just like before. Fuse was blown, and I didn't have another 15A that wasnt plugged in making something work. My ashtray light had not been working for the last while by the way.

SO, I pulled out a 15A fuse from the the slot that said CIG on the passenger side, I never use the 12v ports anyway. (used it for the rear parking light/dash light slot to get the dash lights working again.)

*But, the dash lights looked a little lazy, meaning I could see a bit of a powerup happening over 1-2 seconds to full illumination*

SO. then I went in the book and found out what fuses that had anything to do with the ash/aux outlet sliding tray which was good at popping the fuse that lit up the dash. I wanted to disable the ashtray light and 12V ports in the tray to be safe.

I already pulled the appropriate 15A fuse on the passenger side which I used to bring the dash and rear parking lights back. But also, I decided to remove the 10A fuse on the drivers side that was for the accessory outlet. ( it might have been labelled CIG?)

Dash lights come on fast and solid now, sliding the tray does not have an influence or cause flickering.

My car is old enough that I don't care about having to rearrange fuses to make things work, If end up needing the 12v ports I can put the 10A fuse back in since the tray needs to be held open anyway.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: where is the location of the heater blower motor

No need to tear the dash out. The blower is located above the passenger's feet, below the glove compartment. You access it from underneath. Three small black bolts hold it on and there is a two wire electrical connector on the bottom that must be removed. The motor drops down with the fan blade attached. Should take about 5 or 10 minutes to remove.

I have a '93 SL2 and the interior is the same as an SL1 or 2 from '92, '93, '94 and maybe even a '95.

The gauge/gear/temp control lights do not work. Tail lights are fine. Bulbs are fine, replaced 2 fuses but problem persists, what to do??


The dash lights are on a different fuse and circuit from the tail lights.
If the lights in the instrument cluster work, the problem may be in the harness in the dash.

Im told same fuse controls dash and tail lights just look in owners manual but i have no owners manual can someone please tell me what fuse is for das and tail lights on 2000 saturn sl please


It looks like the parking lamp fuse is in the box in the engine compartment marked PARK and the dash light fuse is in the box on the driver side of the dash marked DIMMER. They are two different circuits.

2000 saturn sl1 dash and tail lights out i have no onwers manual so i don't know what fuse it is can someone tell me what fuse to change


There's another fuse location (on my 99 SL1 anyway) under the right front panel of the center console in the passenger compartment. Check fuses with a test light (cheap and easy to use).

Dash lights and tail lights wont work?? any ideas??


Possibly the the dimmer switch that controls dashlight brightness may be bad or the wiring connected to it may have an issue. They both should also be on the same fuse.

Dashlights don't come on. I hit something in the road (ruined a tire) and the tail lights and dash lights went off. I found a burned out fuse that covered the taillights and they now burn but I can't find...


Fuse #34 is detailed as "TAIL", but it also operates the dash lights too. If your dash are not working and the fuse is good the most likely cause would be your dash dimmer switch. If you press on it and the lights come on. Simply replace it.

1996 saturn dashlights out


You may want to check the wiring under/inside the dash. The AC may have blown the scent of burning wires or other components from the dash. THere may be copper wires that have been exposed or have shorted one another. Then check on the fuse once all wires have been checked out.
