'95 Lincoln town car. Husband was driving uphill and the digital dash suddenly went dark. Radio is working and a/c is not. Exterior light still working and so are interior lights besides the dash


Could be a bad wire possibly chaffing or grounding out to to another wire or frame. Check your fuses. You may want to pull the dash out and check that wiring as well

How do I replace dash light bulbs on a 2007 Ford Escape?


What lights are not working ? The instrument cluster illumination is inoperative or all the lights ,radio , heater control head, all the switches that would be back lighted.
  • The climate control panel illumination is inoperative , The passenger door lock control switch illumination is inoperative. Could need new dimmer switch , new instrument cluster. When installing a new instrument cluster, it is necessary to upload the module configuration to the scan tool. Following installation of the new instrument cluster, download the module configuration from the scan tool into the new instrument cluster. Refer to Section 418-01 .

    Dash lights dont work on my 97 blazer


    All lights, or just your illumination lights? Illumination: bulbs need replacing. All lights; SERIOUS problem. There is a dash panel fuse on car. check that. Has anyone done any work recently under dash( like installing a radio)? May be they accidentally pulled a connector loose behind dash. Need to pull your instrument cluster to check that. Usually two big connectors with lots of wires going to back of instrument cluster. If no power at all with key on: check under hood at power distribution center for a main big fuse out.

    I have a 2004 sebring that i bought new. the instrument cluster lights dont work, i checked interior fuses number 7 and 11 that relate to the instrument cluster illumination. they seem to be fine.


    If the fuses are good there should be a dial that adjusts the brightness of the dash panel.If this dial doesn't work then the bulbs for the dash panel might be blown out.

    SOME OF THE DASH LIGHTS DON'T WORK WHILE OTHERS DO. IS THE A FUSE PROBLEM?


    Hi:
    All of dash lights are on the same circuit. There are around 7 small bulbs that illuminate the dash instrument cluster, and they can burn out individually. If the situation gets bad enough that you are struggling with seeing it at night, the instrument cluster must be removed to replace the bulbs. I recommend changing every bulb when you do this.

    2001 FordEscape- dash trans indicator appears to be LCD type, will not illuminate at nigh when park/headlights turned on..other dash illumiination lights work OK


    this is a pretty simple fix, even though the screen is LCD, the illumination is from a small bulb on the back side of the instrument cluster. pull the instrument cluster out, and replace the bulb!

    Dash lights will not work?


    Check that your tailights/parking lights are working (not the headlights) as this fuse and relay feeds all the instument lights too.... Fuse 15amp TAIL & Tailight Relay

    If not then check:
    The rheostat (also known as the dimmer switch) may be faulty
    as it controls all the illumination of all the backlight bulbs and other dimable switches/indicators.

    In general bulbs all together draw a fair amount of current so it is possible that the wiring or ground at the major supply junction feeders has failed but that is a less common problem.

    So check the rheostat dimmer wiring area first as all illumination power goes through it.

    There is further simple testing we can do with the three wires at the rheostat you can check the entire illumination system.
    If you jumper the white/blk to the white/blk all the illumination lights should come on (that means the rheostat is bad).

    Or use a voltmeter and measure the green rehostat wire to ground it should be 12volts (if not time to check the fuse, relay and wiring)

    If not then finally declare the instrument panel faulty (like burned up circuit board trace).

    Note of interest: the rheostat also controls (dims) other switches not associated with the instrument cluster such as the cigarette lighter bulb and hazard switch and radio player and A/C control switch. So if those are dimming but not the instrument panel backlights then yes the instrument cluster needs fixing or a very close wiring inspection.
