Why does a portion of my dash lights go out and come back on as I am driving?


You have an intermittent open circuit happening either inside of the actual circuitry itself, or with the connections at the plugs. Have you had any recent dash work? If so, you need to take this up with who ever has been in the dash before.

Dash Lights 1995 Buick LeSabre


is your taillight working when you turn on park lights? (even dash is not lit)
if not, check for fuse they are on same circuit. check fuse #21. instrument panel lighting. 10 amps.

if fuse is ok, you may need to remove dashboard and check for connection problems on its sockets.

as a note: if there is a dimmer switch and if it is short dash lights go out.

Dome light stays on when it is very hot outside and during a sunny day. The door ajar light on instrument panel lights up also. Both stay lit until it cools down or the sun goes down.


you have a short circuit somewhere in your dash cluster, when it heats up the wires probably soften and droop down contacting another wire and closing one or more lamp circuits. If you feel like taking the dash apart, get a wire location diagram and find the short, or take it to an automotive electrical shop.

you have to clear all the codes first, your vehicle stored fault even when the battery was replaced it created trouble codes. have it reseted and see if it comes back on.
