Hi
This could be the body controller computer has crashed. Disconnect the battery and reconnect after about 30 sec. All should be well. Make sure you have your radio code first though.
When power has been disconnected from the radio it requires a code entered before it will operate. This should be in your service book details. If not you can get it from a dealer via the chassis number. If it no longer has the factory unit installed it won't matter.
Usually, instrument panel lights ["dashboard lights"] are turned on and off WHEN the headlights or parking lights are turned on or off. Since the head lights and tail lights are NOT powered through the ignition switch, and therefore can be turned on even while the ignition switch is turned off and the key removed, so are the instrument lights.
WHILE the head lights OR the parking lights are turned ON, "brightness" control of the instrument lights is accomplished by ROTATING the headlight switch KNOB. A FULL CLOCKWISE rotation of the headlight switch knob will FULLY DIM THE INSTRUMENT LIGHTS. Full counterclockwise rotation [ONLY to the "DETENT STOP"] will adjust the instrument lights to full bright. NO POSITION of this switch causes the INSTRUMENT lights to remain ON.
IF the knob is turned a little more forcefully COUNTERCLOCKWISE, PAST THE DETENT, then the interior courtesy lights and the dome light will be turned ON.
IF your instrument lights remain ON, suggests that you have not FULLY turned OFF the headlight and/or parking light switch.
If, as answer 1 suggests, you have a SEPERATE control switch for the instrument panel lights, then it may be possible that that switch does have a FULL-ON position which keeps the instrument lights on continuously, regardless of headlight/parking light switch status.
As Answer 1 suggests, your Owner/Operator Manual should explain how your particular vehicle's instrument lights are controlled.
If you do not have your Manual, find someone who has a car identical to yours and ask them, or look at their Manual.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

Make sure your transmission is all the way in park. Sometimes they don't go into park completely.

I have a honda odyssey 2001 the light of the panel are not workinkg all the rest of the lights are working i check the fuse and are ok only i did was change the radio and install a new one but did not...


I'm guessing you're talking about the dash light aound the radio. The dash lights around the radio share the same fuse with all the other lights that come on when you turn the parking light on. If the other light are working then your fuses are fine. What i think might have happen was when you took the dash cover off, the bulbs behind it might had burn out. You might want to try new bulbs.

good luck

99 dodge ram van 1500 v6 keep blowing fuse for parking and dash lights as soon as I turn on parking lights. Where are the ground wires for the parking lights?


have you recently replaced the bulbs in the rear for the tail lights Check to see if you put the right kind of bulb in. I myself have done this. Most ground wires are in the rear going from the harness to the frame.
