There could be a bad connection between your dimmer switch and the lights themselves. often times through vibration and wear and tear the connectors degrade. check this first. also the dimmer switch itself could be the cause.check all the connections associated with the panel lights, look for loose wires and/or bad connections if there are none replace the dimmer switch

Why dose our insturment panel lights stay on


Instrument panel lights always stay on. They are bright during the day, and dimmer at night so you can see your speed, revs, water and fuel gauges. There should be a control to dim them or turn them off to your liking.

Instrument Panel lights Are dim on right side of gauges [RPM]only.Maybe bad Headlight Dimmer switch? /Burned bulbs?/ loose wire??? I don't know.


Am I missing something or is everyone answering the wrong question?
If I am reading this right you are having problems in your instrument cluster in your dash not being lit up on one side, correct?
If so it is most likely a burnt out bulb or two.

Does your cluster intensity decreases when you hide the photocell? The photocell aperture is on the upper left corner of the dash cluster. If it does not, this gentleman can repair it for you or provide the repair kit: http://www.batee.com/corvette/dcrg/photocell/

My dodge sport caravan light of the dashboard do not turn on i cheked the dim lights button but its not that i cant even see the speed or gas lights


Instrument lites are on a small amp fuse 3 or 5 amps. The lite switch may supply the power to the instument lites. to the fuse box first,then to the instrument panel. LOOK for the color code of the wire to the fuse panel and to the instrument cluster,check for power,in this wiring.Check bulbs and the grounding wire for the panel.Check all the plug ins.

No instrument panel lights on a 2003 chevy monte carlo


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

Tail lights and instument panel lights will not come on


I had the same problem. The local collector Corvette dealer ("Fairly Reliable Bob's" is their name, and I am not joking.) told me they see it all the time and that it is due to a faulty turn signal sub-assembly.
