Fuse 20 keep getting blown


ah , you know the fuse number, that is good.
ahhhh its not fuse 20 its just a 20amp fuse. and you failed to say
what fuse name it is or the true #
engine stalls.
and does the dash waring lamps go dead too????
if yes, that means the EFI system has no electrical power, and must stall. THE EFI needs 10 to 15vdc at all times.
im looking now, at a Real FSM ,
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

fuse #20 is horn
but id bet you told me the wrong fuse number but in the stead
the amps. which is near useless to me.
fuse 9,16,20, 21 are all 4 , 20amps.

so look at the wiring page 8w section in FSM above
and see the fuse box, and then tell me what fuse blow.
name or REAL fuse number.
and we can work from there.

2009 lacrosse...compass, clock and milage lights sometimes stay real dim and then later pop up to normal brightness so I can read them...what goes ?


Starting car in garage turns on headlights which makes believe it is dark out and therefore dims dash lights. When car is out of garage it switches to running lights which allow dash lights to get brighter. I guess I should have figured that !!!

2005 Chevy Cobalt lights turn off


automatic headlights are controlled by a photo sensor on the dash located in front of the Instrument cluster. to test the sensor try covering it and see if the headlights come on. faulty wiring in the circuit could also cause this problem. the headlights and the radio are wired together and the "auto" function will cause the radio to get brighter when its dark out, thus the combination of problems.

When my headlights come on at night, the dash lights will not come on and the radio illumination behind the clock goes out. Why is this?


Check the dimmer switch to your dash light. If there turned down, your dash and radio illumination light will be dime or not working at all. Keep me posted, be glad to know if it is the dimmer switch turned down or you dimmer switch has gone bad. Good luck

Radio lights


Try to adjust dash lights brighter. FOr some reason the radio blacks out even when the lights are dimmed a bit. Try turning the dash lights a bit brighter and see if you can see the radio. HAve a great day.

Failure of instrument cluster & console lighting


My 2003 Elantra had a problem when I would use the turn signals. The dash lights would flicker on and off and if you jiggled the arm of the dimmer switch it would turn the dash lights back on. Over time it got worse. AND little did I know it also made the tail lights and front parking lights flicker on and off!!! So it was not good to say the least.
I took the switch out and opened it up. And inside where the turn signal components moved to make their contact connections, there was a build up of electrical contact grease at the bottom making intermittent contact between two points (I'm assuming gravity and vibration over the years moved the grease down there and built up). I cleaned the excess contact grease from the area. Reassembled the switch. Put back in steering column. No longer having issues.

Weak lighting on Radio/Clock Console


call your dealer to confirm. i believe there is a problem with the whole console. i had dim lights on the heat / air section, they fixed under warranty, major teardown not just a bulb. now i have a jammed cd changer and dim lights like you. out of warranty, no help $1200 =++++ fix. it seems like a power supply and chronic problem but call first.
