Question about 1999 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

The dash lights won't come on so I can't see the speedometer and other gauges at night. I checked the fuses and they look OK. Is it a bulb that's out? If so, do I have to take the dash off or can I reach up under the dash and feel around for a bulb? Or, might the problem be some other condition?

    That was a good guess, but it was a blown fuse. I took the truck to the shop and the mechanic initially checked the fuse diagram like I did and saw the fuse for the illumination was OK. Then he looked high and low but checked the other fuses and saw one that had blown. Therefore, the diagram in the manual and the fuse box should not always be relied upon. The bets initial step would have been to check all fuses before moving on to the next possible solution.

There are multiple lights for the dash illumination

depending on the year and model of your Dodge it is more likely the headlamp/multifunction switch

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.

Lights on speedometer do not light up, which fuse is for the dash?


On the left of the steering wheel there is the knob for the headlights. Click them on completly. Next to that knob is a rollable up and down Dimmer swithch make sure it is rolled all the way up. The lights should come on. If they do not then maybe the gauge bulbs are blown out. If that is the case you will have to take the dash apart and change the bulbs in the gauges. BEfore you do that, Are all the other lights out as well? radio lights? ac/ heat control lights out?
