SOURCE: license's plate light stopped working even with new bulb.

It wouldn't be a fuse if that's the only light that's not working, I believe all of the parking lights are on the same fuse. It's most likely a bad ground or corrosion inside the socket where the bulb makes the electrical connection. So check the socket to make sure it has no corrosion, if it does, clean it up and apply some dielectric grease (available at any parts store) to prevent future corrosion, and check for a loose or broken ground wire.

SOURCE: Dashboard lights don't work

Make sure that when you check the fuses you use a test light applied to both sides of the fuse you are testing.It can be very difficult to see a fuse that is blown when the fuse is blown near the edges. PS the dash fuse is by itself and needs to be checked when the light switch is on.

Yep through the dimmer switch itself. The dimmer switch is either bad or the pigatail to the dimmer switch is bad.

Dash, dome, map lights flicker. Even when keys are not in the truck. mirrors, pwr locks and gages not working. Checked fuses, battery cables/connection. Guessing its wiring. No clue where to start..


Do you have a 'dimmer switch' on your dashboard?

A dimmer switch allows you to reduce the power /light to the instrument gauges for night driving. A faulty dimmer switch can cause those problems you describe (I'm in the UK and drive a 1998 Jeep which has an identical problem...)

If you don't have a dimmer switch the fault is likely to be a loose bulb in the instrument cluster- the gauges, or a wiring problem in the dashboard.

Evidently, you shorted out something. Strange that the accessory / dash fuse hasn't blown. 1) Unhook the CD, tape all the loose wires and see if dashboard operates normally. 2) make sure you are hooking the CD yellow wire (battery) and the red wire (ignition) to the proper sources. A normal CD installation has nothing to do with the dash/ dimmer circuit.

Dashboard lights not working


No insult intended, but are you sure the lights on dash aren't just dimmed out? I fell for that one when it went through the car wash. Wiping down everything one of them rolled the dash dimmer. Good luck. And that inj looks like an abreviation for injector. That needs to be looked into cause something or an injector is shorted. good luck

Dashboard Lights Going, going, going


There is a dimmer for the dashboard lights on the dash. Make sure it is up. If all the other warning lights come on on the dash as well, then your ignition switch needs replaced.

Need to replace dash board backlights - 2004 hyundai elantra


trying to do the same on my 01. ready to change the bulb but can't find it anywhere.
anyhow, here's how you do it:

remove the dash by taking out 2 screws behind the ashtray and 2 above the instrument cluster
begin prying off the dash from the ashtray up, when you reach the heater vents stop. next take a flat head screwdriver and pry off the dash from the left side with the door open. work left to right till you reach the heater vents and it'll come right off. you don't necessarily have to unplug any of the electric connectors if you don't want to, but you;ll have to reach around the dash while working. all you need to do now is remove the heater control unit via the 4 screws around it, then unplug the electric harnesses from the back of it. make sure you remember which goes where. the bulbs are the 3 white (or is it 2 white and 1 grey) circles on the back of the control unit. just turn them with a flathead screwdriver and turn it over and give it a little bump to get 'em to fall out (or grab 'em with a needle nose pliers if necessary). anyhow, that's how it's done, question is, where do ya find the bulbs?

My dashboard light does not come up.


Hi,
I'm assuming you mean the backlighting that illuminates the dials and clocks?
If so, do all the other lights, such as on the heater panel, and window switches work?
If so it's just a problem with the instrument panel.
Have you tried operating the dashlight dimmer switch? Sometimes if it's left in the same position for a long time the connection gets a bit dirty (like a crackly volume control on a stereo)
So it might be an idea to work it back and forth to see what happens.
Did this happen suddenly? That may indicate a bad connection to the dash unit.
Give the dash a slap above the clock units (you never know, it's worked for me)
It doesn't sound like a serious problem
The bulbs in the dash do gradually "blacken up" and do have to be changed periodically.
But you don't notice until the last one has gone
Please check for ANY other electrical items not working first.
Electricity can do some strange things in cars.
Hope I've been of some help.
Kev.
