Start with checking the fuse or relay. Locations are in your owners manual.

Intermittent dash board problems

sounds like you have a grounding issue possibly a main grounding location. inconsistant grounding of the vehicles control module will cause erratic behaviours. check under the hood for ground locations containing multiple grounds at 1 bolt location.if different "experts" have attempted repair and failed chances are they are all looking in the wrong place.dash{interior of vehicle}..actual cause.{egine compartment or under side of locations.}good luck and safe motoring:>

What causes everything to not work in the dash?

First, you can check the fuse box for a blown fuse that powers the dash lights/gauges. Fuses are labeled and are easy to see if it is good or blown. Blown fuses will be missing the metal arch inside the plastic case. Or look for a disconnected or corroded ground wire, especially if there was ever a water/coolant leak under the dash area and floor. Chasing missing grounds can be expensive.

I lost my lights to see my fuel level speed im going an coolant temp, everything in the dash works the odometer is real bright when it wasnt before an also my climate control lights went out the same time...

This happens to the digital system when one part of the dash has shorted it caused other system to short out also,the only solution is to get another dash installed in place on the drivers side there is a light control that can vary the intesity can you increase to see much better if not the only solution that can be done is a replacement of the whole dash

I have a toyota corolla 1997 which has a dash board light problem its not on when you turn the lights on i wood like to know if its a fuse problem or something else to consider?

Are we talking about the green light that illuminates when you switch your exterior lights on? If so this will be a bulb blown in the dash, as you say your lights work, just not your dash light. Its an easy fix, just pop the dash forward a little and you get access to the bulbs.

I have a 04 Toyota Tacoma. I have short in the dimmer switch.

It cold just be a fuse that is loose in the fuse box causing the dash lights to come on and off. Or potentially a loose wire from the fuse box the dash lights.

Multiple electrical flukes, transmission goes into

It is the circuit board behind the gauges.
The solder cracks around the pin causing an inconsistent connection.
Cheapest fix is to go to salvage yard and get a complete new circuit board.
I found three soldered connections bad on mine and fixed it myself but for the average Joe it would be just as easy to get another circuit board.

On dash board fuel empty light does no display but ABS display

the fuel light might possibly just be burned out, easy fix, the abs light could be because of low brake fluid pressure, or some other brake problem, hope this helps

Dash board lights out and tail lights working intermittently

Looks like a bad headlamp switch. Poor contact inside the switch contacts will cause this issue.
