I'm thing of a place for you to start looking. On the far left side of your dash is your light switch just to the right of it is your dash light switch it's a little wheel roll it up and see if your dash lights come on.
If not you have a fuse box on the left side of you dash you can only see it with the door open. Remove cover on the inside of the cover it will tell you what fuse is for what. fuse may say illum 10A .
Also your parking brake must be fully released or your auto lights will not work. You also have a fuse box under the hood on the left behind the battery. You will find part of your fuse lights there. I have had a lot of problems with my 2001 Chevy 2500HD in the wiring. Runs good just bad wiring.

when i see the dash lights go out i think of the headlight switch and the dimmer that they usually have. Pull off the headlight switch and look for overheating, melted insulators on the wires.

Turn signals on 2001 Chrysler Town & Country cause dash lights to come on and speedometer & odometer quit working


I would say its probably a short or a ground problem at the turn switch or a wire in that area. you need a test light and probably a multi meater and some nohow a ground or wireing problem can even drive a master teck crasy.

Lights or fuse for my speed odemeter guage and heater/air conditioning system


These lights for the dash are controlled by a rheostat instrument control dimmer switch next to the main light switch for the headlights, it is either turned off (have seen this dozens of times) or it is defective. Below is a picture of the switch assembly I speak of. The thumb wheel next to the knob is the dimmer control.

Hazard light button pushed thru housing. Can't turn off hazard lights


REMOVE HAZARD FUSE IT WILL TURN OFF FLASHER UNTIL YOU FIX HAZARD BUTTON.
YOU GOING HAVE TO REMOVE SPEEDOMETER AND TACH CLUSTER TO GET TO HAZARD SWITCH.TURN OFF RADIO FIRST BEFORE REMOVING NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE BECAUSE YOU WILL DISABLE AIRBAGS WHILE WORKING AROUND STEERING WHEEL AND DASH AREA. WAIT 20 MINUTES BEFORE WORKING AROUND DASH AREA AFTER DISCONNECTING NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE.

I don't know why the light on the speedometer turn off and I culd'nt see any thing on speedometer?


Is it all your dash lights? There is a dimmer somewhere on your dash that controls all of the dash lights. If it is just the speedometer, then it is most likely the bulb has gone bad, or there is a bad connection. Does it ever flicker? If you check the bulb and it is good, sometimes cleaning up the contacts with a pencil eraser, then cleaning the area with alcohol and a q-tip will fix a bad connection. Hope this helps.
Good luck!

2005 Saturn Vue, no light in odometer, is odometer working?All other lights working on dash.


Hi:
the dash has seven or eight small bulbs illuminating the entire area, and approx 3 of them are for the speedometer/odometer area.

It seems odd that those are the first to go, but most likely the problem.
It often requires removal of the instrument cluster to swap bulbs. not too bad, but sometimes tricky.
