My inside dashboard lights and back break light suddenly stopped working so cant drive it at night. Its a 99 honda prelude. I've tried changing the light bulbs and the fuse but still not working.

If the dash lights are on the same circuit as the park lights. Chances are if no dash lights... no park lights. Unless the dash light dimmer switch is on the low position. Check park light fuse. If no brake lights... which are on a different circuit and you are sure the bulbs are ok check brake light fuse. If fuse ok, unplug brake light switch at brake pedal and cross the terminals with a jumper. If brake lights work, the brake switch is faulty. If still no brake light operation suspect a wiring issue

The dash lights in my 2001 Eclipse stopped working after I changed the bulbs, and fuses. Help?

My guess would be a short in the harness or the printed circuit board.

My back lights will not turn on same as my dash lights. I have checked the fuses not sure if all were checked.

You should check the wires for the back lights if everything is good then try changing the bulbs. As for the dash lights i have a 98 sephia and there is a scrolling light switch on the left side near the vent and i thought i had a problem too but it was just the brightness for the dash lights was all the way down.

Mileage recorder/odometer not working(lighting up) everything else on the dashboard is fine-help

Bulb gone, there is about a dozen bulbs behind the dash. A bit of a nightmare to replace. Takes about 1 hour. I would advise changing all the bulbs while your doing it.

All of dash lights are on the same circuit. There are around 7 small bulbs that illuminate the dash instrument cluster, and they can burn out individually. If the situation gets bad enough that you are struggling with seeing it at night, the instrument cluster must be removed to replace the bulbs. I recommend changing every bulb when you do this.

Left turn signal on dash is on when headlights turn on

check the bulb on the left side of your rear tail light. Try changing the bulb for the tail light. This caused by something crossed on the wiring or putting the wrong bulb in there.

How to change bulb in bumpers on volvo v40

The amber lights in the bumper are a complete unit, (bulb cannot be removed without some or all of the amber light assembly) so unfortunatey you will have to go to your Volvo spare parts store & pick one up - front & back are different, as are left & right - check it. I paid €25 for a unit in Ireland.

Changing is a case of unscrewing as much of the bumper as you need to access it and clipping it out. It takes quite a bit of force to clip the new unit back.

Unfortunately I can't help about dash bulb.

Instrument panel lighting on 1999 suburban

Changing the bulbs can be a difficult task, involving the removal of some of the dash panel and such. Check the fuses as it is doubtful that all the bulbs have gone bad at once.
