Those lights are just some small bulbs that are powered by the instrument panel line. They don't light because the wire powering them got disconnected from the wire loom. You must remove the instrument cluster and find out where the break is and fix it.

    Also check the grounding wire, it may be loose.

  • Azrael SRL Aug 22, 2010

    In that case the power to the instrument panel is faulty. Check instrument panel itself and its connector - the power coming from the wiring loom no longer reaches the instruments and the bulbs.

Check you fuse box located underneath the drivers side steering wheel. Remove the palstic cover and on the backside of it is a diagram. Look on the diagram for the "instrument cluster fuse" and then pull it out and replace it. Also rotate your dimmer switch all the way up to max so that your lights are brighter in your dash. If you replace the fuse and still no light and your dimmer switch is ok then you will ned to remove the instrument cluster and replace the burned out light bulbs located in the back of the speedometer cluster. They twist and then pull directly out of the housing

Try adjusting the cluster dimmer,and if this does not help,check the fuse for panel lights,if it is good,then the headlight switch or the dimmer for the cluster is bad.

    The headlight switch assembly is bad to go out on these models,been looking ,and napa auto parts sells the switch,it is the most likely problem.But to make sure ,use a test light and check the dash fuse to make sure it has voltage on the fuse,if it does not,then the headlight switch is bad,I am not saying the fuse is blown,check it to see if there is voltage on that fuse.

    Check the connection at the cluster,then if it is good,replace the bulbs in the cluster if they are replacable,if not then replace the cluster.

SOURCE: WONT START

Thai is either ignition cylinder or starter coil, or a problem with starter motor/wirings to starter motor.

The starter motor must be energized directly (in neutral, and possibly using a remote switch) to check that is working.

If the starter motor is fine, check that there is power coming to starter motor when you ignite.
If there is no power, test power at ignition and eventually replace ignition.

Check 2 fuses. Instument lights / panel and also the brake light fuse. Sometimes the brake light fuse blows and you have no dash lights.

Instument Guages


well the issue is youe enitre gauge cluster i do understand that your speedometer is working but it is a cable speedometer not electronic like everything else in the gauge cluster so first i would recomend checking the voltage getting to your gauge cluster then just replace the guagecluster they are really cheap i a salvage and not hard to install at all but the cluster itself is not very comon to go out so make sure you check voltage to it first i wouldnt want you to go through buying and replaceing the cluster and that not fix it
