You need a new headlight switch most likley. Try turning the knob to dim and brighten quickly and push in and out on the headlight between parking and headlights.

92 roadmaster instrument lights


Oh boy, I just went through this with my '92 Lesabre, took a long time to trace it all down, and wound up splicing in a new wire just to my instrument cluster lights. A short kept blowing fuses somewhere in that circuit.
Down where your feet go, up under the dash at the fuse panel, there is a 15 amp fuse for park/tail lights. When you hit the light switch (for heads or park lights), power is sent to that fuse, and then to the exterior park lights. There is another wire from that fuse (green wire on mine) that also goes up under the dash, and splices to several bulbs-on the radio, on the HVAC controller, on the ashtray light, also one to the under hood lamp, and then one to the dimmer/brighter switch on the dash, the rheostat that controls brightness of interior lights. One of the green splices goes into this switch, and then another wire goes from this switch to the instrument cluster for the gauge and dash illumination. I couldn't find the short, so ran a new wire from the park light fuse to the gray wire to the instrument cluster for the cluster bulbs. I bypassed the dimmer, and left off the HVAC bulbs and ashtray light. Too much trouble to wire them all up, and think my short may have been in the dimmer rheostat.
If you have a voltmeter, pull out the dimmer switch and check for power on those wires, the green from the fuse. The park light must be switched on, or the fuse has no power. There be 8 or 9 wires on that dimmer rheostat-I never did figure out where all of them went. Asked all over a Buick forum, but nobody had an answer.

My friend has a 2000 s10 pickup and his dash lights went out, but the abs brake lights, check engine and oil lights turn signals t=etc. works. weve searched everything and no blown fuses but there was a...


The lights are powered by the dimmer switch in the headlight switch box. Power goes from there thru a 10amp fuse number 12 marked ILLUM in the interior fuse box.
Then it goes out to the lights.
You would need to know if you have power at that fuse.

I HAVE A 1988 TOYOTA PICKUP AND ONE NIGHT MY DASH LIGHTS WENT OUT EVERYTHING ELSES WORKS BUT MY DASH LIGHTS CHECKED ALL THE FUSES NONE BLOWED PLEASE HELP


The dash lights are controlled by the dimmer switch on the head lamp switch. Check under the dash to ensure nothing got accidentally unplugged. Also the plug in the back os the dash can come loose or a contact can burn up where it plugs in on high mileage cars and trucks. Some times you can clean the plug with a small brass brush and sometimes you have to replace the plug and or cluster depending how bad it is. Also most cars have more than one fuse box make sure to check them all.

1986 Toyota Pickup Instrument lights and tail lights out


Even though the relay is activated,I assumed you checked the out put?Also,You checked the voltage at the light sockets?With a meter,or test light ,check the fuse for the cluster lps,adjust them to dim,and to bright,the meter should act accordingly on the fuse.If it does not,replace the dimmer control,or head light switch,witch ever controls them.This may allow continuity to the tail lights as well.If the fuse is dead for the cluster lights,replacing the dimmer control,or head light switch will solve the problem,or,from another fuse ,supply voltage to the cluster lp fuse,one that is only hot with the key on,cause if you do this the dash lights will come on,every time you run the vehicle,day,or night.

Dash light


Is it the lights or the LEDs? If it's the lights, check the fuse first. If the fuse is good, check the dimmer switch. Do the other lights inside dim? If no replace dimmer. If yes, then you can remove the dash cluster from the dash and replace the lights. They are installed in the back of the cluster and are very cheap.

Dash light would not come on at night


Most of the time that problem lies in the headlight switch. Check your fuse for dash lights also. does your dome light come on?

1996 Chevy S10 4x4 - Dash lights need replacing


not easy, you have to remove bottom plastic from underneath the dash, there should be two or three you don't have to go to the passenger side, then the front contour snaps off bring your shifter arm al the way down to 1st gear and the steering colomn as well on that plastic contour you have the 4x4 switch to unplug, rear wiper switch, light switch, and rear hatch switch, wiggle the plastic out, now you should see the instrument cluster there should be two to 4 screws holding that in should be 7 mm screws, now careful, if you have the analog cluster you have the speedmeter cable in back to unclip, if digital odometer it's plugged in directly into the dash and there could be an additional plug on top of the cluster, if the cluster came out unclip the backing and you should see the back of the bulbs but careful some are twist off and many others are soudered on that board you aoto parts counter should have these lights in stock no sweat.... good luck
