Instrument panel light malfunctioning.


I have a buddy with a Jimmy and his lights did something similar, but once the dash illumination quit, nothing would make them come back on. We ended up replacing the entire light switch assembly, and it fixed it. We assume the dash illumination dimmer switch was shorted out. You may try getting a can of contact cleaner and taking the switch out and spraying all electrical connections related to your lighting to clean them up, THEN look into a new switch if that doesnt help. Hope this helped!!

My dash light do not come on


FIrst, spin the brightness knob back and forth, if dirt or corrosion are causing the problem, this cleans the contact area. If that does not resolve it, check the fuses number 7 and 11 just under the dash on drivers side, it has a cover on it that comes off.

If the lights for system check do not come on when the key is turned to run without starting engine, check the fuses number 9 and 5 just under the dash on drivers side.

If this does not correct the issue, and the following- Radio glove box light, ashtray light, ABS light at startup with the other system check lights do work, the bulbs for dash illumination are probably burned out.

if the radio, ash tray and glove box light work and the other system check lights do not- the dash cluster may be seperated from the connector on the back side. or the ground wire for the cluster may not be making contact. The ground wire specific for the dash cluster lights is a black wire with orange trace stripe.

Just bought a 1998 audi a4 as soon as i turn the ignition on the dash illulnination lights come on!! i can dim them but thats not the point i do not want them to come on till i turn on the lights no point...


That's how the car was built - until the midyear facelift in 99 (the 99.5 model), the dash lights were always illuminated. Even with VagCom I haven't seen a way to disable this - the car is hardwired to light up the dash with the key on.

When my headlights come on at night, the dash lights will not come on and the radio illumination behind the clock goes out. Why is this?


Check the dimmer switch to your dash light. If there turned down, your dash and radio illumination light will be dime or not working at all. Keep me posted, be glad to know if it is the dimmer switch turned down or you dimmer switch has gone bad. Good luck

Maintenance light on dash how do you reset it had oil changed but they did not reset the light


Courtesy of www.synthetic-direct.ca

  • Turn the ignition key to the OFF position with the odometer reading shown.
  • Turn the ignition key to the ON position while holding down the trip meter reset button.
  • Hold down the button until the light goes off.
  • Before the light goes off, it illuminates for 3 seconds, flashes for 2 seconds, and illuminates for 1 second. If the system fails to reset, the light will remain flashing
Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

How do I program my key for my 2006 Chevy Impala?


Add Duplicate Key (PK3 or PK3+ key)
1. Insert an existing key into the ignition cylinder.
2. Turn the ignition cylinder to ON (RUN) and back to OFF.
3. Remove the existing key and, within fifteen seconds, insert the new key
and turn it to ON (RUN).
4. The security light will light up for two seconds to indicate success in programming
the key into the vehicle.
Originate New Master Key (PK3 or PK3+ key)

1. Insert new key into ignition cylinder and turn it to the ON (RUN) position.
The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten minutes.
2. When the security light goes out, you have one minute to start the next
step. Turn the ignition cylinder to OFF and then back to the ON (RUN)
position. The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten
more minutes.
3. When the security light goes out, you have one minute to start the next
step. Turn the ignition cylinder to OFF and then back on the ON (RUN)
position. The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten
more minutes.
4. After the security light has gone off the third time, the key has been programmed
into the vehicle’s computer and will operate the car. It has replaced ALL the
previous electronic key codes and is the ONLY key programmed into the
vehicle’s computer.
