Question about 2002 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

Pathfinder 2002 dashboard lights go out when headlights come on

My dash board lights (gas gage, speedometer, odometer, RPM gage, radiator temp gage, CD player display and radio display) go out when the headlights come on. It does not matter if I turn on the lights or it they come on automatically. These lights go off when the high beams, low beams or marker lights come on.

The odometer digital display is still working but the backlight is out. The door open light, seatbelt light, turn signal indicators and cruise control lights still function.

Check the dimmer for the instrument cluster,make sure it is turned up,and then check the fuse,if all this is fine,then the headlight switch is the most likely cause of the problem.

No dash lights when headlights are turned on. Everything works fine on my vehicle EXCEPT today the panel lights don't work. Turn signals, hazard blinker, oil gauge, rpm gauge, speedometer, drive shift...


there is a regulator for the display brightness, you may have it turn'd down or it has stopped working;. it controls the brightness at which the dash lights are. usually has a speedo sign on it. goes up and down. it works with the main light and is conecter to them on the same lighting board if it has gone then a new light swtch control switch will be needed.

The odometrer, speedometer, gas gage are not working


Has anyone had the dash out? If you take the dash out there is a cable connected to the odometer and the speedometer it is just one cable. And some wires going to the gas gage. Check and make sure the cable is connected all the way. The gas gage may also be disconnected somewhere but there could be different problems that cause the gas gage to be disabled. !Never touch two wires at the same time!
