Dashlights and high beams wont come on


Play with the ignition switch,If you can disable the starter when the engine is running and can do it in a very safe manner,this way you can turn the ignition and check to see if a ignition electrical part is failing, If you cant disable the starter just be careful how you turn the ignition you are only ruling out the ignition switch electrical part as possible problem or even the solution

What does the dimmer switch on a 2002 Chevy impala do? And how can I replace it?


There are two "dimmers".. The first is used to switch between high and low beam healamps. This switch is integrated into the "smartswitch" which contains the turn signals as well. The other dimmer switch is for the dashboard lamps and allows you to adjust the brightness of the dashlights. This is part of the the headlamp switch assembly.This is a common failure item in impalas and when it fails it usually results in loss of dashboard lamps when driving at night. Replacement of the headlamp switch is necessary.

For 2009 Nissan Versa SL: Need to Disable Dashboard Lights


There may be a seperate fuse for that feature. The thing to try is find the fuse box. It is generally under the left hand side of the dash on thedriverside butthey have been known in some vehicles to be on the right hand side under the dash and even inside the glove compartment. There are some models that setup the fuse box under the hood as well. If you have an operating manual with your vehicle then the fuse box will be located in there.
Once you find the fuse box then try thist rick.
Locate instrument panel fuse. In this case there should be two with instrument panel listed but if not then it may be all in one fuse. What I woulddo is just turn thekey on so the lights you want off are shinning on so you can see them. Then one by one pull a fuse. If thelight stays on then replace the fuse back in the same spot you took it out of, Continue doing this one fuse at a time and replacing it back in the same spot until the dash lights go out. Then see what the fuse box says about that certain fuse and what all it operates. It may be that you can not disable the dash lights this way without disabling something else you need such as a blinker or heater or radio, but what I am hoping is it has its own seperate fuse. If you arenot sure what it operates by what it says onthe fuse box then once the fuse is out start the car and check all of your other lights including brake lights and blinkers and of course thedash lights that work when your head lights are on. Check all of yourother switch operated devices like the radio and windsheild wipers and heater. Anything that has a switch you can test. Remeber that you may have pulled the fuse that operates the dashlights but there still may be another fuse that operates the dashlights you want disabled, so if the fuse you puilled disabled stuff youneed then replace thefuse and keep pulling more until the dashlights go out again or you run out of fuses to pull. Remeber to turn the headlights back off while you arepulling more fuses. I hope this was helpful, Raz

Headlights & dashlights turning on & off


Daytime running light module which is located under dash (around the area of the fuses) probably has a bad solder joint inside (if you take it apart). If not could be bad connection on one of the switches (like your dimmer switch)

Dashlights are dim


I know this sounds trivial, but make sure you or someone didn't inadvertently bump the dimmer switch. If you slide the dimmer all the way up and even past the slight little catch so that they are continously on high and still seem dim, there could possibly be an issue with the dimmer switch itself.

Dashlights and temperature dash lights not working


Turn on your headlights and check to see if your taillights are working. They act as a fuse to your dashlights, its a safety thing
