Hi tusak,
It could be various things, like a loose connector deep behind the instrument cluster, or a blown fuse - check your manual to find out which fuse it is.

First of all though, as a former Golf owner myself, I'd suggest you check the dashboard dimmer wheel hasn't been turned to "really dim". On my old Mk3 it was exactly where a gloved right hand could inadvertently spin it round.

I hope this helps you - if not please post a comment and I'll try again. Thank you. D

1998 Oldsmobile Aurora no dashboard or tail lights


well it sounds like a computer issue the one that needs replacement is the " body ecu " it controls the lights, heater, seat belt sound and etc. should be under the dash.

Dashboard lights, radio, locks, and heater do not work, all went out at the same time. A week before, I put in a new battery. What could be the problem? Thanks you. Diana


sounds like a bad relay for the heater blower, and a fuse for the rest.. if you look in your owners manual it will tell you where the fuse is for the radio and locks, and relay for the blower..

I have a light showing on my dashboard of my VW passatt 2003 1.9 disel. It look a bit like a spring could u please help me out


I did not catch that it was a Diesel the first time. I had a Volvo with a VW/Audi Diesel at one time and it had a similar light for the glow plugs (the cylinder heater plugs). It came on momentarily when the key was first turned, but before starting the car. It would then go out when the cylinders were at the temperature to start the car, and I could then turn the key the rest of the way to start the car. Could this be it? They often do not come on in warm weather when they are not needed.
As far as determining which lamps are out, the easiest way is to have a friend walk around the car while you turn the different lights on and off, including the brakes and the turn signals. In the evening when you are parked, check the dashboard and the heater and radio controls to make sure that they are all lit, including the transmission indicator (PRNDL...). .Also, the lamp-out light can come one if a lamp is not fully into the socket, but you would notice a flicker then and not a steady light.

How to change light in clock on 2002 honda accord


The clock slides out by carefully prying with a fine screw driver. Take care not to scratch the dashboard fascia. It has a mini light bulb in the back, which can be taken out by rotating it with a small scredriver. it looks like a small plastic disc with ridges on it. Take it to the dealer / parts shop so they can see the proper color. Accord dashboards came with 3 different color plastic covers on the bulbs, in order to match the rest of the dashboard and radio. No need to disconnect the 2 electrical plugs that attach to the clock.

How do I replace dashboard heater light? The glowing lights that indicate direction of air flow.


Heater light bulb, and all other bulbs for the air conditioning buttons, are on the same mini panel, and attached to the back of the radio front fascia. To dismount this fascia, you need 1) To pry out (no screws) the clock 2) Unscrew the one screw that holds the top of the fascia (screw is hidden behind clock) 3) Unscrew the two screws at the bottom of the fascia 4) Disconnect all connectors from the back of the fascia 5) Look for the burnt minibulb.
You could replace the bulb without disconnecting, but the cables are short, and the possibilities of marring your dashboard are high.
