Question about Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

1993 Cavalier - No dash lights when I turn the headlights on. The lights that illuminate the speedo, and everything will not come on, as well as the backlight on the radio. The dimmer switch doesn't do a thing. I've traced the wires the best I can but found nothing disconnected. Stopped working after I replaced my heater core. What could I have disconnected? Anyone have a diagram?

How do I get the gages on my 2014 Toyota Tundra to illuminate during the day.


Many new cars have a sensor on the dash, found under a hole in the top of the dash, that tells a computer when to turn on the dash lights and headlights. If you cover this hole, the lights should turn on.

Any time the headlights are on, the dash lights should illuminate as well.

Do you have the dash light dimmer control turned off by mistake, a common cause. It is next to the headlight switch.

What can I check if the parking lights do not come on? The regular lights and flashers and turn signals work.


The first thing to check would be a fuse. Park lights use a different fuse than the other lights you mentioned. Are the dash illumination lights working? These will typically be on the same fuse as the park lights. If your dash lights are working, I would suspect the headlight switch.

The dash lights went out on my 2000 Buick Lesabre Custom. It doesn't have the heads up display or remote locks, though they are power. All the other lights work fine, the computer displays work, and when...


Sounds like you have some confusion going on here.
The dash lights and tail lights have always been on different circuits and fuses. So if one set of lights fail, the other stays on unless the headlight switch blows up.
The fuse marked "instruments" is for the speedo and gas gauge, not the lights.
On your car there is an instrument panel module and a dash integraded module which both involve the dash lights.
You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams and test procedures for this circuit.
Another thing - after 1998 most cars and trucks switched from having the headlight switch provide power to having them provide the ground connection.

Brake and dash lights no working


Had a similar problem and fixed it by installing a new headlight switch / turn signal lever. Hope this helps.
