May be it doesn't goes out but the dash board dimmer setting is just set to low. Check the dimmer setting and adjust to high.

2007 Chevy Uplander. Tonight the lights did not come on automatically (turned them on manually) and no dashboard "back" lighting.


Predicated that the light switch that controls your dashboard back lighting was not set to its dimmest setting, and the fact that the sentinel did not automatically turn on your head lights, indicates a problem in the switch that controls the headlights, interior lighting, and dash lights.
I would however check all my fuses before going out and buying a new switch assembly; I would also check the photo sensor as well.

My dashboard lights wont turn off even when the key is turned off on my 99 intrepid help ty


If you are mechanically inclined, begin by removing head light switch and disconnect the harness. This should turn lights off, is it does, you might have a bad switch or a shorted/grounded wire from switch to dashboard.

Dashboard light on temp control switch does not light up on driver's side


turn on the lights & switch, smack the top of the dash a couple times.
if the light comes on..then you have a loose bulb in the back of the panel,
if not, the bulb is bad, consisting of removeing the cover for the instrument
cluster, removing the speedo head to get to the back side for bulb replacement..( make sure to disconnect the Battery before performing
this chore) i hope this helps !! Merry Christmas !!

Dashboard lights won't come on


Most often the tail lights and dash lights share a single feed and fuse.
Assuming you have checked the fuses (probably marked as tail or courtesy)
If you have good fuse and the head light gives a voltage out while in the 'parking light' position (usually between off and headlights) then you need to start chasing wiring.
