Dash lights in '90 cadillac seville not working

My dash lights flicker (not in the instrument cluster, but all the illuminated buttons, etc) in my 1990 cadillac seville but recently they just stopped working. How do I fix it? I'm assuming it's a loose wire.

'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

I need to know what controls the lights that illuminate the radio and heater controls on a 1998 Cadillac Seville. the displays are working. Just not the buttons on each are not lit


head light switch make sure you don't have the instrument panel dimmed all the way down if so turn it up, then if that doesnt work make sure your head lights are turning on when they are suposed to, if not you may have a bad light sensor on the dash or bad headlamp switch.

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 .

    What cause dash light to go out while running 1999 cadillac


    A best guess with out seeing the car in person, would be a cracked solder joint or a bad ground. This ( IPC) Instrument Panel Cluster has logic circuits and the ability to set codes. One of the first things to do should be to hook up a scan tool and check for stored codes.
    Diagnostic System Check - Instrument Cluster
    The IPC Diagnostic System Check is an organized approach to identify problems associated with the module. This check must be the starting point for any module complaint, and will direct you to the next logical step in diagnosing the complaint. The module is a very reliable component and is not likely the cause of the malfunction. Most system complaints are linked to faulty wiring and connectors, and occasionally to components. Understanding the computer system and using the tables correctly will reduce diagnostic time and prevent unnecessary parts replacement. This is taken right from Cadillac service information. Does the
    Adjust the instrument panel dimmer control. work ?
    The IPC illumination varies based on the dimmer control adjustment.

    Dash lights are not working


    The illumination bulbs in your instrument cluster may have burned out. You have to access the back of the instrument cluster to change them.

    Dash cluster power failure


    Is it just the instrument gauge cluster that is being affected? Is there any other thing (radio illumination, park or tail lamps, etc.) that is also going out at the same time?
    If the cluster is the only thing, I would look for loose electrical connections at the back of the cluster module.

    Also, your Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) is part of your onboard computer network. Fault codes in either the IPC or one of the other modules (PCM, ABS, Body Control, etc.) may lead you to the cause of the IPC malfunction.

    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.

    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.

    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!
