Locate fuse for dashboard 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.

Running lights on a 1998 ford Windstar not working


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

My hazard flashers don't work on my 2008 ford edge.where is the fuse for the flashers or the relay .looked in manual no help


The vehicle's owner manual should let you know the location of the fuse box, boxes or fuse compartments. if not try to check under the hood, under the dashboard of the vehicle, most of the vehicle have them under the driver side or on the side of the dashboard. you may want to start there. or may be check the light bulbs as well and double check the rest of the light as well may be your light bulbs that may be bad but I will start with the fuses first also there may be a chance that the hazardous light switch may just went bad too if the case is you will need to replace that and I will take it to mechanic. you always want to make sure your hazard lights work in case of emergency!

I have a 1988 Nissan Altima and the dash lights went out. Is this a fuse or something else? If fuse, where is it? I didn't see one for the dashboard.


The fuse should be located under the dash on the driver side & fuses are also located under the hood. The best thing to do is to check your owners manual & it will point you directly to where your doom fuse is located. Also check to make sure your dimmer switch isn't turned off or low for the dash.

The power windows will not go up. Which fuse controls the windows?? Rene


When you open the fuse box, there should be a fuse map on the cover. Usually there is a listing for "PW / PDL" or more obviously "Windows / Door locks" or even "Cabin electronics" ... it should be that one. If you cannot find anything on your fuse map that looks right, and nothing in the fuse box in the engine compartment looks burned out, you might be in the wrong fuse box. Many cars have a secondary fuse box inside the car. This can be located in one of 3 places (usually) -- 1. Under the driver's side dashboard (rarely, it is located under the driver's seat ... but this is unusual), 2. under the passenger side dashboard, 3. In the trunk. American cars usually put them under the driver's side or passenger's side of the dashboard if they have a secondary fuse box. If you cannot locate the fuse that is out, I recommend getting a Haynes manual from a local auto-parts store. This manual will have the wire diagrams, and fuse box locations for your car, as well as other fixes if it is not the fuse.

Can't find the fuse box under the driver's side dash on my 2000 suzuki grand vitara. my radio/clock not working and dome light does not come on when the driver's side door is opened.


Its below the Dashboard, on the left side of your knee. You have to use a torch & locate it from under the Dashboard, Its roughly near to the Clutch Pedal.

95 jaquar van dan plas......fuse boxes


Hi, there are 5 main fuse boxes on the vehicle.
One is located next to the battery in the trunk
One is located on top of the passenger fender in the engine bay
One is located on top of the drivers fender in the engine bay
and there are 2 in the heel boards below the rear seats (behind a carpeted panel)
In the engine bay on the right side you should have a compartment for tools, on the inside of that compartment there should be a fuse indentification diagram.
Thanks and good luck...
Also if you dash backlights do not work, its more and likely the dimmer switch that has failed which is located on the left side of the steering column shroud next to the column movement switch.
