Try to only roll one at a time up or down if you push more than 1 button at a time it will put a strain on the battery also try getting your battery tested to see if a cell is out. good luck!

SOURCE: issue with dash lights dimming while driving,

If the battery and alternator tested fine. I would have the charging system rechecked when engine is hot and at high rpm's. This way the checks are being done as if you were driving and driving for a long time. Alternators can work fine when cold but weaken when hot or stop working. This problem is not rare but only is seen occassionly. Unless it was checked at an electrical shop the average shop doesn't run these tests for they don't see the problem often enough to automaticly run them at all times. Good luck and let me know how you make out.

Have you tried turning the dimming knob (usually a small knob sticking out of the instrument guage face, or a roller type switch next to the light switch) back and forth. closkwise on the knob or up on the roller usually turns the brightness up.

My 99 Expedition just died while driving. After towing it home it now wont even turn over. I can jump the starter and it engages and I have power to dome light and headlights but when I turn key nothing (...


I has an 86 Mustang that did a similar thing and it turned out that the battery actually shorted out. This happens when one of the plates inside the battery brakes off and then touches another plate. When mine died it was like I turned the iginition off. It wouldn't turn over even with jumper cables.

I AM INSTALLING A TACHOMETER IN MY 89 MUSTANG GT AND I DONT KNOW WHICH WIRE TO USE ON THE DIMMER SWITCH FOR THE TACH LIGHT?


Grab a $5 12volt test light & probe back of switch where wiring comes into switch, for wire that has power when you pull lights on. If that's when you want it illuminated. If you want it too go bright or dim with dash , poke wires until you find that one, while turning switch to bright dim, and test light will do same.
