Question about 1995 Ford Escort

1 Answer

Dashboard Light gone, handbreak light flickers sometimes.

I have a 16v 1995 ford Escort. I have had a problemwith the dashboard lights for a while now, at times they would come on but more often not, if it kept clikcking the headlight switch on and off quickly i could get the dashboard lights to work, now the light has gone completely, before changing the bulb i would like to change the fuse yet i am unsure which symbol indicates the dashboard light or if i am even looking in the right area. I am aware of the fuse box in the engine but i have been checking the one to the lower right section on the driver side inside the car. The other problem is that on occasions my handbreak line will flicker on and off in the dashboard, is this indicating that i have a problem with my breaks, i have checked and the handbreak is fully off when this happens. I would be very pleased for any advice on the issues above and look forward to finding a result.

Have a look at the dashboard lights dimmer switch. That switch, losing contact momentarily while the lights are on, will cause the lights to flicker.

Sounds like possibly the ignition switch is going out. Try jiggling the key in the ignition in the on position and see if your lights come back on.

You may want to look at the fuse and even the wiring at the back of the dashboard. It may have gone loose, the symptoms of which was the flashing or flickering. Check the wires and the ground for the connections or it may need replacement.

Dashboard lights and back lights have gone out!!


This, without a doubt, is the main light switch. It comes complete with the wiper switch. Beware of using second hand ones.
