Sad to say but probrobly not. The bulb is the likely culprit. That is if its only one section. If its the whole panel it could be a short in the dimmer switch for the dash. Thats where my problem was.

Dash lights quit working


When the dashboard lights in your vehicle malfunction or cease to operate, the resulting effects can range from being a mere annoyance to posing a safety hazard. Locating the problem and finding a remedy is essential. To fix dashboard lights that won't light, follow these suggestions

Evaluate the problem methodically. Begin the process by trying the simplest of solutions first. Most vehicles have a dashboard lights control switch that will dim the dashboard lights, as well as turn them off. Check the control switch, which should be located on the console near the steering column, make sure its in the correct position to have the lights on.

Check the dashboard light fuse. A blown fuse can disable the vehicle's dashboard light. The fuse box may be under the hood, or on the floor, near the brake pedal, or there may be 2 fuse boxes in both places. Refer to the diagram on the fuse box cover to locate the correct fuse. Replace the dashboard light fuse if necessary.

If all of the above don't fix it, then replace your light switch.

1986 Chrysler Lebaron dashboard lights out


probably the headlight switch. also check the fuse panel. the dash lights should have their own fuse which if blown could indicate an electrical short.

98 grand prix dashboard lights wont come on


I had a similar issue to yours recently. The PKG LIGHT fuse was out in the fuse block under the hood. I had no running lights, no instrument panel lights and rapid dinging when I open the door like an indicator of the headlights being left on. It is a 20AMP fuse in slot 37. There should be another fuse in one of your "spare" slots. Hope this helps.

Heating and air control does not come on when truck is started. after the engine runs, it will come on for a few seconds; then, it will go off..and stay off...and for some reason dash board lights do not...


sounds like you may be haveing issues with blower motor its trying to go out all together
  • Locate the knob or dial that controls the brightness of the dashboard lights. If the control is not immediately evident, check your owner's manual.
  • 2 Make sure the brightness control is turned on. If it is and the lights aren't working, the problem may be a bad fuse.
  • 3 Check the fuse that controls the dashboard lights (see How to Fix a Faulty Car Fuse). Replace the fuse if necessary.

    Dashboard Lights not working


    I experienced the same after a car detail (inside and outside) exercise. I checked this and another forum. In my case the issue was that the Dimmer dial (to the left of the dashboard panel) had been turned OFF and it was depending on the auto-lights. Whenever I moved from Parking to R or D gears, the dashboards would go off. After I set the Dimmer back to some setting (Full), the dashboard lights stayed ON as before. I did not have to play around with any fuses. Looks like the dial was turned to off position during the inside cleaning.

    The dashboard lights to my 2001 dodge caravan do not work


    there is a fuse/relay panel underhood, also another underdash. check fuses with a testlight if possible. make sure the reostat( little wheel beside the light switch) is in the proper position. The dashlights are a seperate issue from the turn signals, unless it's an underdash wiring issue. check the fuses and reostat and let me know what you find.
    Good luck
