The removal of the dimmer switch is easy. Removing the trim around the instrument cluster and then squeezing the ears on the switch from the back of the panel will do it. The switch will come forward through the front of the trim when the ears are depressed.

Take a small flat head tech screw driver or a small plastic wedge and be very careful. You have to work it out. Look at the new one to see how it secures itself.

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.

What does the dimmer switch on a 2002 Chevy impala do? And how can I replace it?


There are two "dimmers".. The first is used to switch between high and low beam healamps. This switch is integrated into the "smartswitch" which contains the turn signals as well. The other dimmer switch is for the dashboard lamps and allows you to adjust the brightness of the dashlights. This is part of the the headlamp switch assembly.This is a common failure item in impalas and when it fails it usually results in loss of dashboard lamps when driving at night. Replacement of the headlamp switch is necessary.

Lights out inn dashboard


All lights do not burn out. Either it is the dimmer switch itself is faulty or the dimmer switch is too low for the lamps to register on the dashboard.

Check the dimmer switch, they are known to fail. Play around with the knob by turning is and you should get your lights back, if not remove the steering column covers and spray electrical cleaner in the dimmer switch and just work it in. Last resort replace the dimmer switch.

1994 Honda Accord Ex dashboard removal


You have to remove the console and radio pod. Then remove 2 screws that you can now get to behind the pod. Then pry out the dash light dimmer switch (the one you use to adjust dash light brightness) remove the screw behind it that holds in the gage cluster trim. Then there is another switch on the other side under the cluster (don't remember what it is) and there is another screw behind it. Have fun, LOL!
