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.

On my 93 Chevy caprice the dash lights and cluster won't work. Gas gauge went so far up that I can no longer see it.


First check and see if the dash light dimmer control on the headlight switch is turned down all the way, which shuts off the dash lights. As far as the gas gage goes that is more then likely a defective gas tank fuel level sending unit.

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.

Dash light stopped working


check fuse first... check that the dimmer isnt turned all the way down... check the power coming from the dimmer switch... and if all else fails, pull the instrument cluster and check bulbs.

Dimmer switch doesn't work on 2001 buick regal


At this point...replace the entire dash cluster. Either that...or the wiring from the fuse to the dash are gonzo or has a short.

pull the dash light dimmer rheostat and test it, chances are it is open and is the problem, If the dimmer has power to it and the lights don't work then the dimmer switch is defective, the fuse is most likely not a problem, it would be the instrument cluster fuse, remember any fuse being blown indicates a shorted circuit.

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 lights started dimming then went away completely. Now the in dash stereo cd lost its lights as well????


Please do not mistake this as an insult but I must ask... Check dash dimmer switch settings (on headlamp switch) if set is ok. Next would probably be a bad ground wire to instrument cluster and radio lamp circut
