Re: light went out on dashboard and I don't have the
It is either the light is burned out or the fuse is bad. Usually fuses are right on the left hand side corner under the dash and another sets are in engine compartment under the hood. The cover to them are all labeled inside. By holding the cover next to the fuses you can tell which fuse is for what. You pull them out one at a time. If it is burned out you will seee a break in them and if the fuse is Ok, the light on your dash is burned out. You can take out the dash by few screws (that holds them in place and) check for the lights

Check for a fuse box underneath the dashboard in the drivers side. Some times there is a plastic lever that needs to be pulled down in order for the fuse panel to swing down. Check your car manaul to see where the dasboard light fuse is located, some times the fuse can be located in the engine compartment where you will find a rather big black plastic box with relays and other fuses. Another fuse box location is found on the passenger side underneath the dashboard or kick panel, better to check the owners manual so you don't have to look into all 3 locations.
When you do find the right fuse block, look for a fuse that is labled Insturment Lights or Cluster Panel, that usually indicates the dashboard light fuse. The fuse used in most dashboard lights is around the 15 to 20 Amp range.
Are your turn signal still working ?
In your fuse box, which can be under the hood for some fuses and relays, and under the drivers side dashboard, it can also be on the side of the dashboard on drivers side when you open the drivers door, look for a door on the dashboard and pull it
so in your owners manual it will tell you what fuse it is, but the fuse box under the hood should have a diagram of the fuse box and which fuse or relay it is
I have only ran into this once, were all the bulbs went bad at once,
now there is a sense in most of these cars for day time lights, and if covered will not work, but the sense can be bad, or your head light switch could be bad to
check under you dash for the fuse box and look for a fuse marked for the lights on the dash board. If you can not see one marked for that specifically you may want to resort to your owners manual and see if they show it in there. Generally they will have a diagram in the manual and it may be on the cover of the fuse box on the inside.
P.S. make sure the adjustment for the level of brightness that you can adjust from the light switch. It usually is right by the lights switch and says interior lights.

obtain a fuse tester and test the fuses to the left under the steering column. unless you have a the chilton/hanes/owner manual that will tell you the direct fuse. the fuse is definately out. the fuse controls those exact lights. erik olszewski
First, make sure it's not that your dimmer switch has been turned all the way down.
Check fuse 22 and 23. If they're good then you may have a bad ground somewhere. Check the board and fuse box under the battery (yes, I know - but thats where vw located it) for corrosion.
