1997 Cherokee Sport. This just started yesterday. The dash lights only come on when the rear window defroster is cut on. The dash lights go off when the rear defroster is cut off. Any ideas ??


just happened or you bought it like this, ?
all else works (my other shoe drops/)? car drives ok , even at night?
well that wiring to those 2 wires are shorted together.
97xj
i guess you meant the cluster warning lamps?. or the cluster back lamps? or are you talking courtsey lamps? (they glow head lamps on)/? no sure what DASH means (as they say,location,location location) 4000 parts on a car, so.... location matter
please.

the cluster power is fuse 17, key on. white-blk wire.
that runs the whole cluster, but back light illumination lamps
back lights are on the dimmer knob.

defroster, the front glass HVAC defroster, knob.
or the rear glass heater defroster, which end of car, ?
rear glass heater is the BK/Rd wire (black-red)
powered by a RELAY , this wire is shorted. to dash xxxxxxx
if i knew what DASH means, id get way more accurate.
I have the drawing btw.
can do all electrics.

My dash lights went from dim to off


no other failure> car runs perfect all other electrics perfect.
head lights, parking lights??????

the dash lamps are usually on the park light circuit.
check parking lamps.
check fuses first.

next time say what dash lamps means.
there are a huge number of lamps on the dash
warning lights.
displays
dash parking lamps (back ground glowing for night usage)
called dial lights.
say exactly the lamp that is dead and what it does.

the dash dial lights on all cars have a dimmer control
turn it up,. and bingo the dials glow.

so replace or adjust the brake lamp switch.

Hi there. my problem is every time i step on the brake an orange light on the dash appears. the symbol that keeps illuminating is a car with what looks like the rear lights on at the rear. can anybody...


Yes. The reason it looks like the lights on the rear of the car and the reason it comes on every time you are hitting your brakes, is because your lamp-out module is trying to tell you that you have a brake lamp that is not working. This is normal function if you ave a burned out bulb or a broken wire in your brake lamps. It does not set any codes, so there is nothing to "reset". Just fix the brake lamp and the warning lamp will go away.

Red indicator light comes on periodically in upper left hand corner of dash; does not stay on all the time; rectangular shaped light (not oil).


Yhe indicator that you are seeing is most likely a charging system light (alternator). It could be other things like a brake warning lamp, but I don't know what king of car you are talking about, so I have no way to look it up for you.

In any case, YELLOW or AMBER lights on the dash mean that you should use caution while driving and get the car checked as soon as it is convinient for you. On the other hand, RED warning lamps mean STOP OPERATING THE VEHICLE until you have resolved the cause of the light coming on (unless you like being stranded - or worse!).

When i push the brakes the dash lights up and when i put the right or left blinkers the dash lights ups. what do i do?


Hi, is it possible you have the wrong lamps in the brake light sockets? It seems like the brake/turn lamps are shorting across to the tail lamps, which will the power the dash lights. The stop/turn lamps are supposed to be dual filament bulbs. If you put a single filament bulb in the socket, it may short across the stop and tail circuits.

I have a 2000 VW Beetle, automatic transmision. The handle is locked on park position. ABS and Brake lights turns on at the same time. How can I unlock the transmision?


possibly the brake light switch above the brake pedal is faulty. The transmition lever will not move unless your foot is on the brake, if the switch that senses this action is faulty, the transmision lever will not move.

when you say ABS and Brake lights turns on at the same time, do mean the lamps at the rear of the car are on or are you refering to warning lamps on the dash panal?

if you meant dash panal then check your stop lights are working, if all 3 dont work, this definately points to a faulty brake light switch.

if your stop lights are on all the time, then this also could be either a faulty switch, or the switch has been dislodged from its bracket above the brake pedal.

How to reset the brake lamp warning indicator and chime


The light will go off as soon as the light or the circuit to the light is repaired, if it is still on and the brake lights work correctly, meaning bright normal not dim looking then the monitor for the lamp out warning is defective, they are very pricey would take the bulbs out if i where you.

Hi A J Mae,
Do you mean the traffic indicators,( turn signals) or do you mean the dash board indicator lamps? If it's the dash warning lamp indicators, they work on a fail safe system, when you turn the ignition on before the start position, all the lights will come on untill start up and ten they will go off automatically within a second or two....if they stay on with the engine runnig you have a problem we have not covered here.
That will be your hazard warning switch, the one that will be flashing on the dash with a triangle showing on it....If that doesn't do it it'll be something to do with the anti theft device...get out of the car lock all the doors and then press the button on the key fob
