The dash light dimmer by the light switch can be turned off or bad, or the bulbs can be bad, this can happen yes all of them if the get a power surge. If you have an other light operated by the dimmer is it on? if it works then the dash light bulbs or the back of the dash is bad

Dash lights out, need fuse diagram on my 99 chevy malibu can anyone tell me which one it is


library has free access to automotive database. 10 cents a page to print. a 12v test light is used by technicians to verify fuses. you can eliminate or verify quickly that a fuse blew. but also remember power feed to that fusebox comes first from the power distribution center under the hood. it also has fuses and relays. if all the bulbs went out now, then you should pull the cluster. when i worked on these when they were new, some cluster repair was done by sending the cluster out to be fixed. hope its just your bulbs.

My 89 nissan d21 brakelights went out and when i push down the pedal my dash lights come on


Hi, if you didnt fix it yet I'll tell you what could cause the dash lights to come on while pressing on the brake pedal, and that is checking the bulbs AND putting the wrong one in the wrong hole, IE putting the back-up bulb in a brake/parking light socket . The single lead on the center of the back-up bulb shorts the double contacts on the brake/park light socket so the electricity just flows through the one tip of the bulb connecting the two contacts in the socket since the park and dash lights are on the same circuit the dash lights will be energized, hope that makes sense as it happened to me with a 66 mustang. Good luck!!

WHAT CAUSES THE TAIL LIGHTS AND DASHLIGHTS TO GO OUT ON 1983 TOYOTA TRUCK?


GOOD ADVISE--I ALSO LEARNED THAT THERE MAY BE FUSES IN UNDER THE HOOD ALSO. FOUND OUT TODAY THAT IF THE DOME LIGHT DON'T WORK THEN IT'S FUSE COULD BE BLOWN AND HINDER THE CIRCUIT TOO. I'M NOT GOOD ON VOLTAGE READING , BUT DO HAVE A TEST LIGHT. IF NO FIRE AT THE COMMON TAIL LIGT-DASH LIGHT FUSE , THEN THAT MIGHT NARROW IT DOWN. I HAD THE SAME TROUBLE IN MY 1990 FORD XLT LARIAT AND WAS BLOWING THE TAILLIGHT FUSE. IT WAS A SHORT IN THE EXTERNAL TRAILER KIT HARNESS WHICH CAUSED FUSES TO BLOW REGUARLY. WHERE IS RELAY FOR TAILIGHTS AND OTHER FUSES UNDER THE HOOD??

I have no dash lights or headlights


since the dashlights and the headlights are on separate fuses and i figure that you have checked your fuses i would look into replacing your headlight switch. headlight fuse works the switch the switch tells the dashlights to come on and sends a signal to a relay under the hood that tells the headlights to come on.

I changed stereo and now the dashlights do not work


Check your park light fuse. You may have blown the fuse for the dashlights/park lights by accidentally grounding the night illumination wire, located in the radio wiring. That wire runs from the dash lights to the radio, to illuminate the radio at night. Alternately, if the park light fuse keeps blowing when you replace it, you might've hooked that night light wire up to the wrong wire on your radio.

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.

Dashlights and temperature dash lights not working


Turn on your headlights and check to see if your taillights are working. They act as a fuse to your dashlights, its a safety thing
