Dash lights went out.

I put in a new cd deck in my car and two wires accidentally touched and the whole dash lights shut off except, the door ajar light works the check engine light works and all the little lights work but the light that lights up behind my speedometer and my RPM gauge my gas and my temperature gauge wont light up?? I checked all my fuses and thay all still work and i checked the light bulbs in the dash and they all were okay what else could it be??

I have a 2001 ford mustang v-6 that the dome light will not go out when the doors are closed and the key is out ?


My 02 Mustang's light was still on because of the door ajar button. Open the door look at the latch. The latch that goes up and down has a door ajar button hiding near this. It can be hidden by a rubber covering on the side of it. Or you can take the door inner door cover off and try to squirt some oil into the door ajar. You can try oiling it and work it back and forth. Also on the the latches sometimes they dip them in plastic. Mine was loose and would not let the door shut properly. So that was another problem with the light being on. I cut off the pieces that were jamming the latch up.

2001 Ford Escape, dome light will not go off when door shut, but door ajar light is dark?Could this be the door switch? are there different switches for the door ajar light and the dome light? How can I...


The door switch provides a ground to the dome light... so there is no danger to you if you want to attempt a removal of the switch. A rusted or shorted wire in the door switch (of any door) will keep the dome light on.

Door Ajar light wont go off.


replace the relay for the courtesy lights. the relay should be under the dash in the fuse panel on the drivers side. if you can't figure out which one. just put your finger on each one till you find the hottest one by touch.
