2003 Volvo v40 Runs awesome Won't pass smog because check engine light won't light. wouldn't it throw a code if it had a bad connection or broken wire? No codes it just doesn't work. HELP

There is a light bulb inside the dashboard that needs to be replaced. You unscrew the dashboard and then unclip the dash cluster out from the dashboard and replace the bulb behind the check engine light slot. Should take less than a half hour. Most auto parts stores stock the bulbs.

Most but not all dashboard lights have gone out on '97 Pathfinder. Where to find replacement bulbs?

if you have them out of the bulbs out of the vehicle, then you can take them to a parts store, like Autozone of NAPA. they should be able to either get or identify the bulbs for you. The image search should be what you are looking for and the price ($5.00USD) is about what the dealership would be asking, and that's per/bulb.

1998 Nissan Sentra: A) Service Engine Soon Codes; and B) Tail Light Wiring Question...

First, the wires you plucked from the rear lights may be ground wires that corroded and fell out of their termination, or could be secondary wires that provide voltage to your tail parking lights.. and if you touched them to somewhere that had voltage going to it, which it sounds like what happened if sparks flew (or you may have touched a live wire to a ground), you may have sent a voltage spike that blew the dashboard lights out. Did you check all the fuses after the seeing the sparks?? I would suspect that you blew a fuse when that happened. What you need to do is get a volt meter to determine if the loose wires have voltage going to them when the light switch is on, or see if they have continuity to ground.. You say the brake lights work but not the tail lights, so maybe those loose wires either supply voltage to the tail lights, or could be the ground wires for the tail lights. A meter will let you know if they either have voltage going to them or if they have continuity to ground. If you don't know how to do this, you should let someone who knows what they're doing check the wires as you may cause even more damage if you don't know what you're doing.......... I didn't look up your engine codes, but if you have one that has MAP/BAR , it could be that your MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor is bad. This will definitely cause the gas mileage to drop and could cause the engine to run bad..You need to have this vehicle checked for vacuum leaks too. Being that it's an older car, you could have cracked hoses or collapsed hoses causing a vacuum leaks which could also trip the MAP/BAR engine code. If your gas mileage is that bad, it sounds to me like the engine could use a good tune up. Replace air filter and PCV valve, plugs/wires etc. Check for bad or dirty sensors, vacuum lines etc need to be checked...You can have the codes cleared from the computer, but once you do that, the computer will just send the same codes and trip the check engine light again if you do not find and fix the problem causing this condition. Even when you repair the problems, the car will need to be driven for a bit before the computer will allow all the emission parameters to reset and then give you the green light to have the car inspected. Simply clearing the codes without fixing the problems will not allow the vehicle to pass an inspection. The computer needs to reset after the repairs have been done, and then you can take it in for an inspection..Sorry I can't be of more help, but this should give you somewhere to start..Have a look at your vacuum lines, clean or replace the MAP and MAF (mass air flow) sensors (there are you tube vid's on how to do this) and get a meter to see if those loose wires have voltage to them or if they have continuity to ground. Then maybe you can figure out where they came from. I suspect they may have pulled out of a rear light wiring harness connector or a light bulb socket. Good luck!

My 99 chevy silverado dashboard turns off and on when turns on stay that way for a shor period of time and then turns off

you either have a bad fuse or you may have to replace the bulbs behind your dashboard. most of the

lights behind the dashboard are wired in series, what that means if one goes out all the rest go out.

1st thing you want to do is disconnect the negative side of your battery.

you will have to unscrew the trimpiece around the dashboard, unscrew the dashboard, once you access the

back of the dashboard, you will see all the little lights. keep track of where the lights are inserted,

because if you don't you will have more problems. if you have an ohm meter you can check each bulb

one at a time. I recommend if you go this far just replace all of them, to save a headache later on.
good luck!

Brake lights not working and EPC light on the dashboard

probably you have either fitted the wrong bulb, accidently fitted the bulb wrong or shorted out the wiring or holder, look in your handbook for fuse location and double check your hatch bulb.

My speedo light has gone on my dashboard. I have a Peugeot 206 GLX. It means I can't see how fast I'm going in the dark. Does anyone know how to replace the bulb? thanks

The dash board must be removed to install the bulb. This is not a big job but requires special skill and tools. Look in your yellow pages under "autoelectric shops" and then call around to the various shops until you find someone who will do this for a good price.

1991 Chevy Blazer dashboard lights are burned out. Can't read

Your dash needs to come out. These bulbs push into a plastic piece that "twists" into the back of the dash board. (About a 1/4 turn) Unless you can get at them from underneath, but I think it's to tight.

Lights in the dashboard

Check operation & wiring at light control rheostat (left side of dash) & If everything else with electrical is OK, sounds like the bulbs may have simply blown. You will have to pull out instrument cluster to get at the bulbs.
