Below the steering column is an access panel, or a cover. It is held in place with four Philips screws. One in each corner. Remove it. (Keep track of those screws. They have a special washer made onto them!)

Now you can reach up under the dash more easily, and feel for the dashlight bulb holders. You have to lay on your right side on the floorboard, twist your upper body to the left, and stick your arm, and hand up in there. This will be so much fun, that you'll want to get a second job doing just this! (NOT!)

Since you've never done this before, (If I'm correct), I'll try to explain what you're feeling for.

To explain what a dashlight bulb holder looks like.
Looking at the bulb socket side, it is a round shaped piece of plastic about the size of a nickle.
There is a socket in the middle, and the miniature
lamp bulb pushes down in to install.
Looking at the backside, where your fingers will be touching, it looks like a knob on a gas stove. It has a protrustion in the middle, that is shaped in a rectangle.

The bulb end that inserts into the bulb socket, narrows down to a flat tip. Should be a 194. Looks like this,

The bulb holder has one crude thread on it. To remove it, you turn it one-quarter turn, then take it out. As you face the dash, turn it to the right.
Once you get one out in your hand, you'll see what I meant about the shape, why it was hard to describe, and how crude my explanation probably is.
REPLACE one bulb at a time!

Hope this helps you in some way.

    I came back to state, that there SHOULD be a panel under the steering column. In retrospect, I realized that I based this on a 1994 GMC Sonoma, and assumed it was very close to your 1992 S10.

The dash lights aren't too hard of a fix in all honesty. What I have trouble with is getting the lights on my trailer to work. I'm wondering if I should just go in to <a rel='nofollow' href="">wholesale trailer parts</a> store and ask them what to do or what.

Wow this is the hard way to do this!! All you have to do is remove the Speedometer there is a total of 8 screws to take out. Then the whole console comes out. At this point it is very easy to change the builds. While you have it out change all of the bulbs.

I hope this helped some people. Http://

Turn the key, nothing happens. no clicking from starter, do dashboard instruments light up. 1998 chevy s10 4cyl pickup

Did you check your battery voltage? Try to jump the vehicle with another vehicle that is running fine? It takes less battery power to light up bulbs in the dash than it does to crank your engine.

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!!

The dash lights and tail lights are not working but everything else lights properly. All the fuses are good. What next?

dash lights, tail lights, park lights and plate lights do share the same source of power for pickups.
try to replace your dash light and tail light bulbs, it would probably solve your problem.

The dash lights on my 1995 nissan pickup went out completely last week. before, the lights behind the HVAC controls were on or off intermittently, now i can't see the gauges when i am driving at night.

the bulbs are either blown or there is a loose wire in the back of the dash cluster if you cant find any loos wires them teh dimmer switch or head light switch may be the problem

Dash board doesn't light up

remove dash to the bulb components (the layer of dash with only bulbs[looks complicated]) turn dash lights on and identify wich bulbs are not working, replace them with the correct bulbs. if this is unsuccesfull find the connection from the bulbs to the wire and also the connection from the wire to switch. ensure the components inside the connextions are clean(pull apart and check for rust, dust, dirt ect..) you can buy connection cleaner from most car orrientated shops.
