Re: 1995 Ford Taurus digital dash clock out
If your clock is backlit from a bulb, you can replace the bulb. If it is LCD lit, you must replace the clock. I've seen several clock and instrument displays in the 90's fords that go dim, or go black. Usually, they must be replaced or factory repaired.

The dash lights have their own 5 amp fuse. The power for this fuse comes through the fuse for the tail lamps. This is done so that if the fuse for the tail lamps blows, the driver will know because the dash lamps go out and when he checks the dash lamp fuse, it will be good, but there will be no power going to it. Most common issue though, is that someone accidentally turned the dimmer switch for the dash lamps completely down. Check that first.
maybe you replaced the wrong fuse. or the dash light bulbs are blown,not very likely that all blown at once so you may have only replaced the wrong fuse. if you do not have fuse location,then check them all. under dash drivers side fuse panel. you'r main engine fuses are located under the hood but have nothing to do with your dash lights. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com
Its possible, check the FLASHER units for1995 Ford Taurus 3.0L EFI 6cyl the Flasher is located front seating area, driver side, under dash, driver side of steering column, mounted behind instrument panel.
Replace the fuse. Most of the time when the tail light fuse is blown it will go un-noticed. This is why they combine the instrument cluster lighting, and tail lights on the same fuse. That way if the dash lights are out you know the tail lights must be out also.
Just fixed this myself. I found a used USDM meter/gauge out of a 1995 SI on EBAY for $200. However, I have a VTEC engine that redlines at 7500 RPM and the SI's redlines at 6500 RPM. Easy to fix by swapping the face plates inside of the meter/gauge. If your issue is the bulbs they cost a lot... around $250 each. But if your lights went out simultaneously then the bulbs are not the issue... it's the power supply where the bulbs plug into and that's located behind the drivers dash speaker (very easy to remove with only two screws holding it in). This part is more expensive at around $350, but cheaper than buying two bulbs. Scroll through every page of honda prelude listings on EBAY and you may just get lucky like I did. Hope this helps.
