Dash lights not working on 2006 Kia Sorento

My dash lights and back lights will not come on when I turn my headlights on. I have looked at the fuses and all of them seem to be fine. My headlights will come on but nothing else. What might cause this problem?

Apparently this is a recall matter and will be fixed at no charge. KIA Consumer Assistance Center 1-800-333-4542. Recall notices were to go out in May/June 2009.

SOURCE: Instrument cluster went blank

I am currently working on my 92 Deville with the same problem. I was driving along, and smelled what I felt was a smoking printed circuit board. I looked down, and the digital fuel data center and climate control panel were dark.

I have the factory shop manual, and with the aid of a meter and the manual, I traced the problem to a bad BCM. The 16v supply coming from the BCM was gone. Opened up the BCM and found an overheated transistor. I also removed the fuel data center and the Climate control panel. The fuel data center panel did not smell good. I found a shorted capacitor on the Fuel data center circuit board. I am replacing the capacitor, and will be picking up a used BCM at the boneyard tomorrow. I might also have an overheated wire in a cable that might have to be replaced. I have not gotten that far in the troubleshooting yet.

Good luck with your problem.......

I have a 2006 Sorento wtih th same headlight problem. And it's not that any of us are touching the bulb or is it moisture because too many of us have this problem. My buddy thinks it's the wiring. The way the wires run to the headlights, they are near warm things in the engine. When the wires get hot, the bulb thinks it's hotter so it's life span isn't as long. What needs to be done is to insulate the wiring. I have tried this and it seems to be working so far.

2006 Kia Sorento dash lights go off and on


Sounds like the connection behind the instrument cluster is loose, i had a customer with the same problem only on a 2012 camry and it turned out to be the connection on the cluster. I just adjusted the tension on the connection by bending the contact pins a little.

2006 ford Taurus dash lights not working and alarm when headlights are left on is also not working


If you have the owner's manual, check the chart showing which fuse is for the dash lights and that alarm. Try replacing that/those fuse(s) to see if you're back in working order. (Not sure where your fuse panel would be, but try the area under the dashboard on the driver's side.)

Are you sure your fuses are ok?.
Bulbs for dash are on the back of it, Im not sure if they are accessible by reaching behind the dashboard, might have to pull it apart.
