300M Dash Gauge Lighting

The lights on my 300M Gauges have gone out - The lighting looks like a flourescent system but comes from a flat sheet embedded in the cluster plate. There is no bulb(s). Is this a typical issue with the power supply or the switch? The center clock has the same lighting and works. If it is an issue with the power supply where can I order one?

I HATE Dodge's electrical system. I purchased a 2000 Neon from a junkyard to teach my son and daughter to drive. I refurbished it, but electrical issues had me using techniques I use in my home repair business to fix em. Okay. I'll get over it.
Before you order one of Dodge's expensive parts then find out that customer service sucks, try replacing the dash fuse. Check the relay under the hood in the engine compartment. The clock might use the same switch, but it MIGHT not have the same power supply. I know it sounds crazy, but this is the same company that has the reverse relay fuse located under the center console in the Neon. I'm sure you've already checked that your switch is in the on position, so I hope that changing the fuse and/or relay work.

No dash lights when headlights are turned on. Everything works fine on my vehicle EXCEPT today the panel lights don't work. Turn signals, hazard blinker, oil gauge, rpm gauge, speedometer, drive shift...


there is a regulator for the display brightness, you may have it turn'd down or it has stopped working;. it controls the brightness at which the dash lights are. usually has a speedo sign on it. goes up and down. it works with the main light and is conecter to them on the same lighting board if it has gone then a new light swtch control switch will be needed.

Gauges stop working and all dash board lights come on


You don't say what the make model and year is, but generally the gauges get power from the same place the gas gauge does. Each gauge is grounded thru a sending unit or switch.
So my guess would be a problem inside the instrument cluster.

2003 Jeep Wrangler alarm sounds in cab but no indicator lights flash


The beeping alarm would be for leaving the key in the ignition or the lights on. Maybe a gauge that had dropped to zero.
Let us know if it happens again and what the conditions are.

89 VETTE. ALL GAUGES IN DASH NOT WORKING . THE DASH LIGHTS DO WORK . RADIO HAS NO SOUND . INTENA DOES GO UP AND DOWN . SPEDO GAUGE NOT WORKING , FUEL GAUGE NOT WORKING , TACK NOT ...


Do you know that all this stuff was working when it was parked? Lets assume it was. Most of this stuff works with the key on or in the acc. position. You are going to need something to check for voltage. At least a test light better yet, multimeter. The dash lights however, come off the headlight switch. Start by checking for power at the fuse for the gauges it's marked "inst" for instruments it protects all the gauges including the tach and speedo. With the key on you should have power on both sides of the fuse. The antenna won't come up until you get the radio to come on. If you have power at the fuse, Your going to have to start taking the dash apart to see where the "open" in the circuit. If you have no power at the fuse, it comes from the ignition switch, it's down low on the steering column. ( I hope you're skinny)

As for the brakes, since it's been sitting that long I would be pulling the wheels off and looking for a seized caliper.

If your going to do your on work on this car I recommend investing in a good manual, try to find a factory book on ebay. or Craig's list.

This is a way cool car, have fun with it!!!

5 to 10 minutes after the sensor triggers my headlights on, my headlights go out and my gauges on my dash begin to jump up every couple seconds. There is a clicking sound when it happens and my lights dim...


Check your battery connections and do a voltage test to battery with engine running lights off, then check with lights on. You need a minimum of 12.5 volts but should have 13-14 volts even with lights.

Dash lights flicker and or go out on 04 Chrysler Sebring Conv.


On thedash of my 2003 sedan sebring ,My dash ilumination lights for the speed,temp,tack\rpm and fuel are unlit.
I found that there is a paper thin plastic across and behind all four of these gauges which lights up all four gauges,if working correctly, There is a very poor connection to this thin film lighting system ,basicaly a wire terminal used as a staple and that very well could be your problem.
It as far as I know would require whole gauge assembly replacement! because dealers dont sell such small portions of some assemblies!
I myself will attempt to crimp this poor connection on my car without damaging thin film! there are no bulbs for those four gauges too iluminate!
