The instrumet panel has to be removed. The bulbs plug into the back of that. There are screws to be removed to allow you to pull it out. On some panels, there are also clips which still hold the panel in even after screws are removed.

Car dashboard lights wont turn on and smell of burning wires


If you're smelling insulation burning - STOP. Fuses should be blowing before insulation melts / burns.

Have the car checked my a trusted mechanic before using anything in the car that makes the wiring burn or melt.

All my interior lights work except for my dashboard lights


Bigird,

I would recommend checking the fuses for the dashboard lights. If no fuses are burned, there could be a possibility of the bulbs in the dash being burned. In any case, start by looking in the manual for fuses relating to dashboard/gauge cluster lights. Once you find out what fuse it should be go from there.

Good luck

Instrument panel lights are nor burning


Lights? more than one? It is extremely improbable that many lights burned at the same time. Jiggle the dashboard dimmer wheel (used for light attenuation adjustment) to see if the lights come back to life. Dimmers, being rheostats, have the nasty habit of burning spots, so they work only at a different location than the burnt spot. Many burnt dashboard lights might be an indication that they got too much voltage. ( Bad voltage regulator). Dashboard lights are placed in the rear of the assembly, and screw right into it. Dashboard must be taken out, and it isnt simple. Purchase a full set of dashboard lights at the car dealer before taking down the dashboard, because you dont want to find out that you dont have the proper bulbs, and the whole dashboard already disassembled.

Jimmy electrical burning.


The wire has rubbed somewhere and is shorted to ground. Replace the wire from the door switch to the light, replace the fuse with one of the correct amperage and it should work. Disconnect the battery while you are replacing the wire.

1991 Chevy Blazer dashboard lights are burned out. Can't read


Your dash needs to come out. These bulbs push into a plastic piece that "twists" into the back of the dash board. (About a 1/4 turn) Unless you can get at them from underneath, but I think it's to tight.

All lights on the dashboard are on including battery engine


REPLACE BATTERY GROUND!!! They have caught on fire before due to old ground wires. Get an ebay ground wire kit and connect them in random places in engine compartment. I have 3 on the battery. Its better to be redundant then on fire!
