Question about 2001 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

My 2002 Mercury Sable Panel lights are out in the speedo/guage cluster area, but the turn signal indicator lights are both on when the light switch is turned on. The panel dimmer dims the indicator lights, but has no effect on the panel lights. All other lights that illuminate with the light switch operate normally as well. This car has the auto on/off type headlight switch. Others have had this problem as well, any solution?

Pull the instrument cluster out and check for loose connector or burnt out dash illumination bulbs

Transmission problems are an issue with Sables. If you Google transmission and Mercury Sable you will come to quite a few complaints. There are actually a few posts on this website where folks are having issue too. Personally a cheap o-ring in my 1999 Sable went out resulting in a $1800 transmission repair bill. I literally gave the car away about three years ago. In almost 20 years of owning vehicles the two years I had the Sable was the most expensive and busiest in the way of repairs.

SOURCE: instrument cluster bulb is out. how do i replace

It may not be a bulb, as the instrument cluster usually has a number of bulbs and they probably didn't all blow at once. Pulling instrument clusters can be touchy and may not be for the average "shadetree mechanic" however, typically there are a few screws above the cluster going into the dash pad and a few hidden behind the trim panels below the cluster.

Pry the switch out from the dash by using a small screwdriver in the slot beneath it. Replace the switch, or test the dimmer with an ohmmeter to see if it is the problem. don-ohio

How do you change the dash lights 2000 mercury sable


Kevin, unfortunately this requires removal of the instrument panel. The bulbs are screwed into the circuit board on the back of the instrument panel. This can be a messy job if you've never had one off before.

Electrical Issues


All the components you mentioned have control modules that you have likely burned out from the reverse hook up of the battery.

Jeff, your problem sounds like a simple fix BUT finding that weak grounding point/connection is a pain. Start by pulling and inspecting connectors/connections, reconnecting. Your car may have experienced a high, high moisture problem at some point in its life.

Need to change out dash light bulb on a 1993


you will have to remove the dash panel around the cluster to get the cluster out. should be held in place with a couple of philips screws and some 7mm or 1/4in bolts remove these and the panel should pop loose will have to disconnect the switchs mounted in the panel. the speedo cluster is next and is bolted in place. you will probably have to work around the steering wheel and column. make sure to unplug speedo and if shift indicator on dash careful not to break it.

Not a Fuse. There are Small Bulbs on the Back of the Guage Cluster that Burn out Occassionally. You will need to Disassemle the Dash and Remove the Guage Cluster to get to these Mini-Bulbs for Replacement. Please Rate my Solution, I need all the Help that I can Get! Thanks!
