Well if you don't mind laying on your back on the floor of the drivers side and reaching up blindly till you feel the sockets.... then you unscrew them (only takes about a half a turn) replace the bulb and plug the socket back in..... other wise if there is no room to get underneath you have to do some disassembly to get to them......

Extend dash lights bulb life.

If you are like me, burned out dash lights drive me nuts. Removing a dash from a modern car to get to them takes time and patience. Tip 1: once you do that replace all the bulbs to keep from having to do this again in the near future. Tip 2: Instead of burning your dash lights full intensity, use the dimmer switch for a lower setting. Less voltage to those bulbs will greatly extend their life. Hopefully all your dash lights are working, and this tip will save you money, time, and aggravation!

When my lights are on, i have no dash or heater controll lights One rear parking light is also out. i have a headlight switch and a seperate dimmer (roll type) switch

The dash lights are incorporated with the parklights. The heater control lights are incoporated with the dash lights. Make sure the dimmer switch is in the full illumination mode. It is possible the park light that is not working is burned out and causing a resistance issue amongst the park light circuitry. Replace the non working park light and retest

All my interior lights work except for my dashboard lights


I would recommend checking the fuses for the dashboard lights. If no fuses are burned, there could be a possibility of the bulbs in the dash being burned. In any case, start by looking in the manual for fuses relating to dashboard/gauge cluster lights. Once you find out what fuse it should be go from there.

Good luck

My dash lights dont work

check the bulbs of your running lights if one of them is burned out it will keep the dash light working, this is designed for you to check your tail lights so you don't get a ticket, just replace the bulb that is burned out.

Dashlights don't come on. I hit something in the road (ruined a tire) and the tail lights and dash lights went off. I found a burned out fuse that covered the taillights and they now burn but I can't find...

Fuse #34 is detailed as "TAIL", but it also operates the dash lights too. If your dash are not working and the fuse is good the most likely cause would be your dash dimmer switch. If you press on it and the lights come on. Simply replace it.

My dash lights only turn on part way. While turning the dimmer up at the half-way point the lights stop getting brighter. I have the dash ripped out of my car currently and can't figure out how to get...

Unclear description of your problem... First, you say 'dimmer up at the half-way point and lights stop getting brighter'?.. Then you seem to be concerned about burned out bulbs. First of all, you describe two different problems... ya think? If you have burned out bulbs, then you can find them and replace them. If you have a lighting problem regarding 'brightness', you need to be more clear as to the problem. If the problem is bulbs, and these burned out bulbs are causing the 'dim' illumination of the dash lights, I'd say you solved the problem. If this is NOT what you meant, then it must be a problem in the rheostat which is not bringing the lights that do work up to the maximum intensity -- would you agree?
