It is most likey the light switch, on the older cars that fed the instrument cluster, costs about $15.00 and is a easy fix.

Dash lights stay off


Check for power to the light switch. If no power, trace wiring from fuse panel to switch. If there is power, then it could be your switch that is bad.

I have a 2003 plymouth voyager p0700-p0755,came up have no curent to speed senser-check eng.light,blinker's or insterment cluster


If you are saying the instrument cluster is not working correctly, you need to check the fuse and the power circuit to the cluster.
Looking at the wiring diagram, I don't see any power going to the speed sensor, so I think it generates its own signal back to the trans control module.
The trans control module gets power from a trans control relay and a 20amp fuse.

Dashpanel lights are out on my 1998 nissan frontier


Sound like a electrical problem or bad harnesses connections; you will need to take off instrument cluster in order to check it. Also, check ground connections.

Hope helps.

My dash light do not come on


FIrst, spin the brightness knob back and forth, if dirt or corrosion are causing the problem, this cleans the contact area. If that does not resolve it, check the fuses number 7 and 11 just under the dash on drivers side, it has a cover on it that comes off.

If the lights for system check do not come on when the key is turned to run without starting engine, check the fuses number 9 and 5 just under the dash on drivers side.

If this does not correct the issue, and the following- Radio glove box light, ashtray light, ABS light at startup with the other system check lights do work, the bulbs for dash illumination are probably burned out.

if the radio, ash tray and glove box light work and the other system check lights do not- the dash cluster may be seperated from the connector on the back side. or the ground wire for the cluster may not be making contact. The ground wire specific for the dash cluster lights is a black wire with orange trace stripe.

97 Passat Dash Lights GONE! Last night I switched my headlights on and had no dash lights. This includes all illumination for the climate control and console (automatic trans). To the best of my...


pull the dash light dimmer rheostat and test it, chances are it is open and is the problem, If the dimmer has power to it and the lights don't work then the dimmer switch is defective, the fuse is most likely not a problem, it would be the instrument cluster fuse, remember any fuse being blown indicates a shorted circuit.

Instrument panel went dead


Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).

98 VW Golf GL (Manual) Dash lights out!


As with everything else electrical check your fuses first. If you don't have a map of your fuse box just pull them out one at a time and check them.. blown ones will be easy to spot. If all the fuses are good, check the dimmer knob for your interior lights (roll it back and forth a few times) If the lights come on at one certain spot but go out again, it's the dimmer gone bad. If they don't come on at all pull the switch out and check for power with a test light. If power bad dimmer... if still no power bad headlight switch.... Hope this helps...;-)
