However, the panel won't light up at night. The turn signal lights and check oil/engine lights work . Would it ba a short in the panel?

SOURCE: Instrument cluster failure causes fuse #29 to blow.

ok it could be quite simple
lets look at wrong size fuse
example 15 and you need a 25 fuse
also if you did any work on vehicle its quite possible that you grounded something out wrong retrace your work and fix accordingly
bad cluster relay is another problem that would cause these problems

SOURCE: electrical problem

I finally broke down and took my truck to the dealer. It took them two tries, but they finally figured it out. It turned out to be the wiring harnes for the shift lever. When it exits the steering column, it was being chafed, and eventually wore through a wire and was intermittently shorting. It would blow a fuse (don't remember which one - I think it was on the bottom row, third in from the right. 20A). It stopped the alternator from charging too. They replaced the shifter harness and the problem went away. I did get a ticket while my speedo was inop however.

SOURCE: Problem with Fuse #9-tail lights&instrument panel illumination

there is an electrical short somewhere you have a power wire touching the car's body. Is there tail/brake lights in the trunk lid? if yes, check around the trunk hinge, the wiring sometimes follows the hinge back to the rest of the car and everytime you open the trunk, you are bending these wires unitl one of them snaps.

SOURCE: instr. panel and running lights fuse blow when headlights turn on

Do yourself a favor before taking to a dealer. Open the hood and find the fuse box. It will be on the firewall on the drivers side. Open it and fine the low beam relay. Finding it is easy. If you open your owners manual and look up relay in the index in the back of the manual there will be a listing of the relay locations. If you dont have the manual any more. A relay is a black or grey box. There are two diffrent types. The types look like a square and one looks like a rectangle. You are looking for the rectangle. The low beam relay is in the row of rectangle relays closest to the driver's side fender. Remove the two closest to the windshield. The one closest to the windshield is for high beam. Take that one and place it where the low beam is.If that fixes it go to an auto parts store and buy a replacement relay. Then try the lights. Let me know and good luck !

SPEEDOMETER WILL NOT ILLUMINATE 1989 CADILLAC ELDORADO


All instrument panel lights or just speedometer light? There are several bulbs behind instrument panel. More than likely, the bulb at speedometer is burned out, and can be replaced by removing instrument panel and replacing bulb(s). Hope this helps.

Inside panel does not light up.Which fuse do I replace and the location. I have the fuse box diagram, but I don't know how to read it.


I’m assuming that you are talking about your instrument panel lights.
First, make sure and check the dial on the dashboard to the left of the instrument panel. It controls the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Turn the dial to adjust the brightness. If it accidently got turned all the way down, you will have no instrument lights.
If that isn’t the problem, the interior fuse box is underneath the dashboard on the driver's side. Remove the fuse box lid by swinging the lid down and pulling it straight out of its hinges.
Fuse number 30 (7.5 amp) controls your instrument lights.
Hope this helps you.
