Dash gages don't work and some of the lights stay on. I have a 97 Pontiac Grand Am. Checked wiring and fuses. The car has been setting up for about 4 months and the battery went dead. Put new on in.

Sounds like your instrument cluster is bad when you get one you have to have it programmed by the dealer

1995 grand am no dash lites or gages but fuse ok

If you have no dashboard lights or instrument lights , you must check two fuses . The taillight fuse feeds the instrument light fuse . If you checked the instrument lights fuse and it is good , check the taillight fuse . Regarding the gauges , the gauge fuse is the only one that feeds them .

I have 2006 grand prix and the bright lights wont come on. I move the blinker lever forward and the low beams stay on but i get the blue bright light on the dash, checked fuses all seem to be okay

do you hear the click of the dimmer switch when you move the lever if you do then the steel rod that goes from the lever to the switch itself is working and the switch is moving from the low beam to high beam circuit.if the blue dash indicator is on them power is coming out of the switch to the dash to operate the light.its possible that the dimmer switch may need to be adjusted a little if you don`t hear the click but moves enough to put the dash light on but not enough to turn the high beams on,that is possibly why the low lights stay on.or you have a bad dimmer switch itself

The dashboard lights are not working. Specifically the lights that are located where the odometer, fuel gage etc.... are located. the service engine soon light stays on when the car is running.

I would check the fuse first. If that checks out, you may have a issue with the wiring harness. There may be a loose wire or a break in the line. You should check the current with a voltage meter.
