Toyota Echo dash lights won't come on.

Water light used to come on intermittently. Drove through a puddle and water light came on. Recently dash lights stopped working. Power door locks word on some doors, not others. Are any of these connected? Is there wiring under the car that would be affected by water, ie. water level light?

    Theres, a hand full of mibulbs on the cluster,(its rare for all to burn out at the same time), pull the cluster out clean the plug, s make sure there not broken or corrosion build up,, you can test the harness for power 12v + with a test light or meter, the wire that gives you 12v+ when you turn the headlight switch on is the one for your illumination of the cluster, turn headlight switch on and off ,test each one of the wires on the cluster plug this way until you find it or check the schematic for the color code wire..

    What's a water light?

  • Emily Jencks Dec 18, 2016

    Where is the access to the cluster? Is it from the engine compartment or from under the dash? (Water light is the light that idicates low water in radiator)

  • leone C Dec 18, 2016

    Ok, the coolant level light, have you check your coolant level in the radiator(the cold wheater will keep your car from overheating but the coolant could be low),radiator cap defective or loose, N#2-are your electric fans working, #3coolant temperature sensor and relay , make sure your heater is full blast and turn on when refilling the coolant system, let me ask you a? What makes you think your problem is at the instrument cluster..

    THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE DASH LIGHT DOES NOT COME ON SO I CANNOT SEE THE SPEEDOMETER AT NIGHT. THE DIMMER IS NOT WORKING. I THOUGHT THE OTHER ELECTRICAL ISSUES MIGHT BE RELATED, BUT OBVIOUSLY THEY ARE NOT. I JUST NEED TO KNOW HOW TO FIX ONE PROBLEM. HOW TO GET THE DASH LIGHT ON SO I CAN SEE THE SPEEDOMETER.

  • leone C Dec 18, 2016

    K, Emily , the dimmer switch is also your main interior and.cluster lights Relay, is connected to everything ,doors, cluster, stereo illumination, try poping it out from behind, that way you dont break anything, Relays do go bad, first check fuse number 30 is 7.5 amp fuse so the color is like a brownish light, thays your cluster light fuse, do that before you pull any thing out, you got a fuse box behind the coin tray and another one in the engine compartment, please let me know if the fuse is good we will go from there, i will do my best to try to help you out..

Nope, theres nothing under the car wires run along the inside of the doors under the carpet, about your door locks, the drivers controls the lock/unlock make sure you have so the passengers can unlock, also check your child lock lever on the rear doors , make sure those are move in the right position, if you got the child safety on sometime the driver piwer swutch wont open it, make sure your courtesy light is not all the way off, the Dimmer, it controls the instrument panel lights, FUSE FOR THE COURTESY, i belive is conected to the door lights, halo on your key or light, glove box light, and your dome light's. Hope this helps, CHECK FUSES WITH METER OR TEST LIGHT.

Testimonial: "It's not the fuse. The dome light and other lights come on. It's just the dash lights, so maybe it's the bulb? How do you change the bulb?"

All my lights went out on dash driving down the road after hitting a water puddle.


Water got into the electrical circuit and shorted something. Check your fuses.

Drove through puddles, and now car won't start


I would check your distributor cap and rotor button. It could have a small crack which let water inside when you drove through the puddles.

I have a 2001 Grand Marque with 151437 miles on it and never had a problem with it. Recently I drove through a very large rain puddle and now my car sputters and accelerates slowly. Oh and the check engine...


It seems to me youre being taken for a ride, if the problem started when you drove over the water puddle then that means that some water go into a key component somehow, perhaps the fuel tank itself or an electrical component. I would stay away from that shop and try to replace the fuel in your vehicle, if its possible for you. also try to take it to autozone if you can, they wil plug the scanner to your vehicle and tell you why the engine light is on for FREE! Good Luck.

99 Sunfire Coolant keeps dumping


You need to find the source of the leak. it hasn't overheated yet because you keep catching it and re-filling. From your description, it sounds a lot like a bad water pump seal (part of pump) but without physically looking you can't be sure of that. when the pump seal begins to fail, internal pressure while running often will drive the seal tighter against the shaft stopping the leak. as pressure drops as the engine cools, the seal relaxes and permits seepage.
With time, that will change and it will leak all the time.

2004 Ford Explorer V8 died after going through puddle, no reset


Pull the snorkel off of the throttle body. If there water and/or oil in the tube and/or throttle body, you destroyed the engine. Water is not compressable, so if it get's into engine, parts like piston rods bend, engine seizes. Lets hope you got a module wet or something, because this isn't covered under warranty. If you're all clean and dry in the snorkel, wait for the summer heat to dry the car up and try again, if you get nothing you will have to take somewhere to be tested, too many variable to try to answer without testing.

Blue low engine coolant temperture indicator light is on


I also recently bought a 2002. According to the owner's manual the blue light does not indicate a problem unless it stays on after the car warms up. If you have an automatic it will not shift into fourth gear until the coolant warms up at which time the light should go off. Have only had the car for a week and notice the blue light goes off after a mile or two of driving in temperatures in the teens to 30's. I don't know how much outside temp affects it.
