Dashboard In a 1997 ford expedition won't come on


If you are talking about the instrument panel and radio lights, one possibility is a broken panel light dimmer rheostat (This is not the same as the headlight dimmer switch). Try turning it to full brightness. If at some point the lights suddenly come on, that's definitely your problem. If the lights don't come on, it could still be broken.

I have seen an older vehicle driven by a person who didn't notice the instrument panel lamps were burning out until the last one went - maybe all you have to do is replace all of the bulbs. :)

Also, check the instrument panel fuse. If it's blown, you'll have to track down the wiring problem that caused the fuse to blow. Merely replacing the fuse is just asking for the problem to happen again at the worst possible moment - such as on a dark road on a dark night where there is a known speed trap, when you're low on fuel, and suddenly you're unable to see either the speedometer or the fuel gauge.

Why do the instrument panel lights turn off when I turn on the headlamps?


Head light switch controls the brightness of the dash lights. Looks like it's the problem.

No instrument panel lights on a 2003 chevy monte carlo


Most likely this is caused by either the dimmer being turned off (happens all the time on my Corvette) or the dimmer is defective.
