No power to the dash lights


First thing, check fuse box...all of them, as many new vehicles have more than one. If the fuse for the dash lights is good, turn your attention to the dash light dimmer switch. That has been the culprit for me a couple of times. If it's mounted in the dash, and not in the gauge cluster, then it's easy to replace. One question, did you recently install an aftermarket stereo? If so, did you hook up the "Dimmer" wire? That often shorts the dimmer switch...or in the case of my Honda Accord, the multiplex computer on the drivers side. What make/model/year is your vehicle? That would be helpful in trying to diagnose.

When my lights are on, i have no dash or heater controll lights One rear parking light is also out. i have a headlight switch and a seperate dimmer (roll type) switch


The dash lights are incorporated with the parklights. The heater control lights are incoporated with the dash lights. Make sure the dimmer switch is in the full illumination mode. It is possible the park light that is not working is burned out and causing a resistance issue amongst the park light circuitry. Replace the non working park light and retest

1999 honda accord lx sedan removed stock dash no dash lights after aftermarket stereo wired in random red wire leading from stock stero to car would love to be able to have dash lights at night everything...


Most cars have the dash light wire in the wires going to the radio. Did you use a store bought adapter the plugs into the honda wire harness to connect the radio? Idf not you may have the dash light wire grounded with the radio and it's blown the dash light fuse. first unplug the radio. then go though the fuse and find the blown one under the dash fuse panel. Replace the fuse.( if their not uswed up the fuse panel has extra fuses and thier marked as spares). try the dash lights, if their workingyou need to find the wire at the radio and make sure it"s not being connected to ground. You might need to use a test light to look for power and when you find it turn the lights on and off the be shure that you have the right wire. If it's still not working you may need to investagate the dash light dimmer swich that turns the brightness up and down to the dash lights. The overload as the radio was connected possibly wrong can blow this switch instead of blowing the fuse. The swich pries out of the dash and you can test it withthe test light. One wire is ground ones the power from the dash panel fuse coming from the headlight switch and the other is the lights thems selves. This switch it'self lights in the dark, so it has a ground for it's bulb.

I hooked up an after market stereo and now my speedometer lights don't work. Know why? On my 01 echo.


the bulb could have been bad, yet the aftermarket stereo wiring takes voltage from your dash, hence the illumination/dimmer. really dont need those wires. they hook up to your dash lighting, and draw power from your dash, take those wires out and see if any changes. Id first take the wires out, if no change then the bulbs are probably bad.

No dash lights or dimmer control after installing a stereo system


Check out the Dimmer Switch Assembly - it may be faulty or there may be a short. I had a simular problem - resolved by replacing.

No dash lights or dimmer control after installing a stereo system


you have to run a jump wire to you cluster when you pull the factory unit out the aftermarket units are wired just a little different find your illumination wire should be orange and make sure it is wired correctly you may have to tie it in to a different wire,,,, i did this on several gm trucks i cant remember which wire i had to jump it to but i belive i tied the amp and illumantion wires together and made it work your fuse will protect you from doing any damage if you should jump the wrong wire...
