There should be a switch next to your automatic transmission shifter that says N, A/T, P....switch it to N and the POWER light should turn off. When the power light is on that means your car is shifting gears at a higher RPM.

Battery dead 2 mornings this wk, battery 2 yrs old checked out good, dashboard light says trunk open but not, Could this drain battery or maybe sensor is bad?

Check the switch of the trunk light if it's shutting off when the trunk close. The indicator light on your dashboard says something's wrong. Although the trunk bulb consumes small power when switched on (i guess it's only 5W), but draining out the battery power depends on how long the vehicle hasn't been started to re-charge the battery.

2004 f350 6.0 liter Installing new Control Panelfor air spring/shocks. Needto tie into dashboard illumination circuit. what color is the dashboard illumination circuit wire? where would I find it?

The brown wire at the main light switch is what feeds power to the microprocessor in the main light switch and the exterior lights circuit. The microprocessor delivers power to the interior instrument and dash lights on the light blue with red wire again at the main lights switch. This circuit is dimable so if you need 12 volts all the time this may not be the right circuit to use.

Dashboard light comes and goes

you possibly have a small short or even the driving lights sorry folder lights are drawing too much power from the system.For the power to come and go you either have a circuit breaker that is overheating putting the lights out and then cooling down and bringing them back on again or one short in the fog lights themselves.Regards

2003bmw sedan headlight,taillight,parking light feed of the same currency;the dashboard headlight stays on!

Not very clear as what your problem is...
Headlights run off their own fuse, as they require more power to function, parking lights run off a lower current fuse, what dashboard light stays on, the high beams?
Please reword problem.

Dash board lights don't turn on wat could be the problem

get ready to work upside down, first get an electrical diagram of your dashboard, find the power wire, get a paperclip and uncurl it, stick it inbetween the power wire and its holder (so the paperclip touches the copper of the wire). next turn the key to the on position, and turn on the lights. (make sure you do this briefly because it will drain your battery) then get a DVOM or a test light, ground them, and see if your dashboard lights are getting power by sticking the lead onto the paperclip. if it is then there is something wrong with the lights themselves. if not, check to see if your power wire is broken, chaffing, shorting, anything wierd. if its not broken then bring to the dealership. if it is broken then replace the wire. 

i do not own a jeep so i cannot tell you exactly how to take apart the dashboard (if the lights are bad) but if you dissasemble it from bottom to top slowly and carefully you should be able to access the lights.

Hope this helps!

1994 C180. Dashboard lights go almost off when headlights are turned on.


The dashboard in the benz c180 is always good and highly illuminated.
I doubt that there may be some problem with the power to the lights present in the dashboard.

And i am sure there are no adjustment for illuminating the dashboard.
you need to call benz service centre for this problem.

Hope my info is useful,
Thanx for using fixya.

POWER light on dashboard

If it is an automatic transmission, check the rocker switch to the left and above of the transmission shifter. Having it in power mode is best when towing, etc.
