You may have the dash light intensity turned down too low. There should be a dial on the dash to adjust it. Yes it could be a fuse too.

    everyone has that same answer, which i was told would mess with the dome light also,but i tested mine and it was working perfectly and the indicator lights all work, the bulbs for my speedo and tach are NOT burnt, i tested them with a small battery and they both light up just fine, is there any other explainations other that a bad cluster? cause im tired of sparking a light to see how fast im going. and ebay only has clusters for 88 and newer, mines a 86

All dashboard/ center console lights out.


Test the dash first. Put key in hold down trip reset botton. Turn the key to on but don't start. Release the trip botton. Should turn on all dash lights & check for codes in the odometer. If getting codes reply back.

Speedometer/tach stopped working


There are 2 sensors on the engine that sent a signal to the computor and speedometer and tach. When one of these goes bad it can make the speedometer and tach go all over the place and also just stop working. This can also cause all types of engine running problems because the information being sent to the PCM will be incorrect all so. The units are easy to replace once you find them, it seems that they are located in different areas of the engine with each year the vehicle was put out.

Dashboard display: tach, speedometer, odometer, fuelgauge etc.


the wiring harness is loose, turn the car on and start wiggling the harness and have someone watch the dash while you do this
