Question about 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan

Dashboard lights don't work

The dashboard/instrument panel lights are not working on my 2000 Grand Caravan. I have tried replacing the fuses. Is there some sort of relay or anything else that might be the cause? i have a 2002 grand caravan. all oputside lights work and all instruments work. the only problem is the dash lights and center console lights do not work. the dimmer switch turns the over head lights on but not the dash. can any one help.

    Have you checked the hot side of the insutrument light fuse to see if there is 12 volts getting to the fuse block?



    Have you checked the other side of the fuse for 12 volts to see if there is current getting through the fuse and block?

Make sure that when you check the fuses you use a test light applied to both sides of the fuse you are testing.It can be very difficult to see a fuse that is blown when the fuse is blown near the edges. PS the dash fuse is by itself and needs to be checked when the light switch is on.

Locate fuse for dashboard lights


Check for a fuse box underneath the dashboard in the drivers side. Some times there is a plastic lever that needs to be pulled down in order for the fuse panel to swing down. Check your car manaul to see where the dasboard light fuse is located, some times the fuse can be located in the engine compartment where you will find a rather big black plastic box with relays and other fuses. Another fuse box location is found on the passenger side underneath the dashboard or kick panel, better to check the owners manual so you don't have to look into all 3 locations.

When you do find the right fuse block, look for a fuse that is labled Insturment Lights or Cluster Panel, that usually indicates the dashboard light fuse. The fuse used in most dashboard lights is around the 15 to 20 Amp range.

No interior lights come on when doors are opened. Very dim instrument panel lights.


theres probably a switch off to the left of the steering wheel (probably some sort of wheel looking switch for the brightness)

I have a 2000 Pontiac grand am GT , the lights in the instrument panel and radio went out. radio doesnt turn on check engine and all those other lights work just not the gas/speed/temp lights.


Hi!!
Make sure the DIMMER Switch on the left of the dashboard was not turned OFF inadvertently, it happens a lot while wiping the board clean, if OK, check the INST. LIGHTS 10A fuse located on the passenger side under dashboard.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!

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.

Dashboard doesn't work, (ie) speedometer, fuel, temperature, odometer ,only door ajar light stays on.


Sounds like a fuse: there is probably one fuse that controls the 'instrument panel'. Always best to check the simple stuff first.
