2005 Ford Focus Dashboard Lights not staying on

I just got a used 2005 Ford Focus ZX4. The dashboard lights come on when I turn on the headlights, however it turns off from anywhere between a minute of driving to sometimes up to 20 minutes. I'm not sure what's wrong, but all the lights turn on properly, it's just that it doesn't stay on.

SOURCE: My ford taurus doesnt turn

If the starter is clicking, or the engine is turning over slowly, try replacing the battery or try getting a jump to see if you can get the engine to start.

If the engine is turning over, but won't start, it sounds like you may have a bad timing belt or your timing tensioner or idler has gone out.

The dashboard lights on my 2005 highlander are dim, how can I fix this.


I belive the dimmer switch for the dashboard lights are located left of the speedometer. It looks like an odometer switch. Turn it to the right and that should make the instrument cluster and lights brighter.

I hope that helped. If you have more questions about this just ask.
