It's usually a fuse. Depending on the car, when the dashboard lights go out, so do the taillights. On my car it's a 10A fuse for the instrument panel.

SOURCE: headlights do not turn on

Check on the fuse for the Headlight, if this is ok then check on the headlights for broken leads, damaged lamps or holders. There could be apossibility that the ground going to the main headlines are not firm. use a voltmeter to check for voltage at the buld end. if no votage is present and if your are hearing the click when the switch is put on, then there is a loose connecton in the harness fromt he head lights relay, please try to sort this out. the fault could be failure of the points, if the relay cliccks and not output comes in, though it is rare. hope this has helped.

SOURCE: my dashboard lights dont come

Since I do not know what kind of vehicle you have I am going to guess that perhaps it has a pull type light switch with a handle (knob) that also rotates. Have you tried to rotate the knob after you turn the head lights on?. Let me know. Thanks.

Probably bad ground in the dash circuitry. You'll have to pull it out and check all the connections. Big job.

I have a 2003 chevy cavalier. headlight issue


The blinking light is telling you that you have a headlight out, if you look the service light should be coming on when the light stops blinking.
Replace the head light and all should be fine.

Just rotate the small knob at the left of your dashboard to the right. This will increase the lights of the dashboard.

Have a problem with my dashboard lights they dont light up.


Is the headlight switch turned all the way to illuminate the dashboard lights? If it is, check the fuse for instrument panel, also marked as instrument cluster.

Headlights wont turn on


The sound system was causing to much of an unpredictable power usage on the headlights and the fuse has blown as a safety precaution.
