Dashboard lights not working wrx 1997

1997 Subaru WRX, my dashboard lights have gone, at first i had no electricals at all and check one of the fuses and it had blown a 10 amp fuse, i replaced it and it only brought back my fan/aircon, the lights on my dashboard prior to turning the engine on, but other than that i have no backlight on my dashboard and not even my headlights symbol lights up. could this be an earthing problem? i have checked all fuses in engine bay and underneath the driverside steering wheel but nothing. is there maybe another fuse box that i have to check ? any help would be sooooo appreciated. thanks !

SOURCE: The dashboard lights to my 2001 dodge caravan do not work

there is a fuse/relay panel underhood, also another underdash. check fuses with a testlight if possible. make sure the reostat( little wheel beside the light switch) is in the proper position. The dashlights are a seperate issue from the turn signals, unless it's an underdash wiring issue. check the fuses and reostat and let me know what you find.
Good luck

most dealers have the remote immobiliser on record. You will need to provide vin number, model,year proof of ownership,registration and other paper work and in some instances a lot of money as replacement of the key costs

My 2003 subaru imprezza WRX has a red key light on the dashboard which goes off when I insert the key. What is it telling me ? Thanks

I'm guessing it has something to do with a security system and since it's on the dashboard, it's a factory installed security system.

My 1999 Ford Expedition has a red flashing 'security' lamp that appears when the vehicle is parked and the key is not inserted. It's normal to see it.

Subaru wrx 1997 tachcometer

you should already have a wire shunt in the main harness for the tach. all you need is the sending unit and the gauge. the sending unit goes in a port on top of the transmission next to the engin bloc. the dealer ship will have the schematic for your specific vehicle and the right sending unit............please rate this
