2008 chevy silverado dashboard light is dim during the day

My 2008 chevy silverado's dashboard light is very dim during the day. I can barely read what radio station is on or what time it is. At night the light brightens back up and you can see everything perfect.

Most likely this is caused by either the dimmer being turned off (happens all the time on my Corvette) or the dimmer is defective.

SOURCE: 1991 Chevy Blazer dashboard lights are burned out. Can't read

Your dash needs to come out. These bulbs push into a plastic piece that "twists" into the back of the dash board. (About a 1/4 turn) Unless you can get at them from underneath, but I think it's to tight.

Sounds like an internal cluster issue.

This could be either a bad headlight switch or dimmer switch. Sometimes the dimmer switch gets dust inside it and causes these symptoms.

SOURCE: lights keep going dim on mini cooper s 2007 dashboard

You don't say if it's "just" the dash lights, or if other lights do it as well. Try turning on a dome light and see if the dome light does it along with the dash lights. Do you notice your headlights doing this as well? These are just troubleshooting steps. If multiple light sources (dome, headlight, etc.) do it, then it's most likely a voltage regulator issue.

I'm having strange problems with my 2008 Chevy HHR LT - no dashboard warning lights come on and the installation of a new throttle body did not solve the problem (see details below).


sounds your variable valve timing solenoids are going out there easy to replace their on the top passenger side of engine you do have to remove the air filter resonator tube to see them, replace the intake and exhaust solenoid at the same time

The digital readout on my dashboard dims during the day. They don't flicker and at night it seems fine. I have a 2002 Mercedes c320


The problem probable is a short to ground on one of ur circuits. when u drive at night u have ur headlights on which forces the alternator to produce more electricity. making it seem normal. or a defective alternator

Why would you replace a fuse with the wrong amperage?

I will at least give you credit for knowing that was wrong
& could in some cases over heat & burn vehicle wiring

What was that going to do or prove?

Surely even with absolutely no vehicle knowledge
what so ever, you would would realize that you need
to have a shop check out or test the truck for short to ground,
poor grounding etc on the dome light & what ever gauge lighting
circuit issues you have

What is really sad, is the truck isn't very old & you want to
risk further issues with the fuse deal

2003 Chevy Silverado When I apply the brakes the


I had an issue like this one on a 2007 Colorado. I assume you mean the turn signal indicator inside the truck lights up. It was a bad bulb. think it was the turn signal bulb on the side that is lighting up. As for the gear indication being dim there is more than one bulb that lights them up and one may have blown. I hope this helps.

Can't see the dashboard when the sun is shining. Is the dashboard supposed to have a bright light during the day?


Yes. Your dash backlight might be non-operational or you might have accidentally dimmed the control knob that controls this. Refer to you car manual. If this still persists, check fuses and relays and bulbs.

90 chevy silverado lights not working


You must have a bare wire at the back of your truck that's shorting out where gravel stones have pounded the outside coating off. If you have an after market trailer plug on there, you might want to check that out too. The connections to your main wires from the trailer plug, are never done properly, and always cause problems somewhere.
