    Some of my lights have been out for a while. I asked the dealer if we can replace the bulbs or something, they said they don't normally replace those. Pretty soon I won't be able to see my dash at night. My dual passenger heat is already burned out.

    I have the exact same problem, although mine has lasted for about 8 months. (I try not to drive at night, but difficult in the winter.) Like the other owner, in the second month they worked for about a week before becoming dim again.

    My tail lights to seem to work, however.

    Full Problem Description:
    my interior instrument panel and over head display attached to the sunroof control all behave as though I have turned my dimmer control all the way down. The instrument lights and above light all work fine in the day time.

    My rear lights are experiencing no problems. That might be a related issue for the initial poster.

    I am taking my vehicle to the specialty shop Saturday.

The Dash and Tail lights connect to the same fuse in most cars. if the fuse is okay, check to make sure the tail lights and/or dash lights are properly grounded. all bulbs could be blown...but highly unlikely.

Dash lights and running lights dont work

At the instrument panel fuse block, check 15A fuse 10 (indicators). In the relay center, check 10A fuse 8 (speedometer).

For "back lights" problem: At the left underhood fuse block, check the 20A HEADLAMP BREAKER. At the instrument panel fuse block, check 15A fuse 6C. Both of these supply power to the lamp control module. If you set the park lamp switch to the on position, the tail part of the tail/stop/turn lamps should light, the separate tail lamps should light, the license lamps should light, and the rear marker lamps should light. If any of these don't light check for burned out lamps, bad sockests, and bad wiring or missing grounds (black wires)

Dash lights dont work

Check your tail light fuse it will probably be blown, and the instrument panel and dash light go out to warn you that your tail light fuse is out

Instrument panel lights dont come on when the headlights are turned on. and no tail lights

These circuits are usually tied together. The loss of the instrument panel lights lets you know that you have problems with tail lights. Check your fuse panel for a blown fuse in this circuit. Best of luck,

The light in my dash went out and I cant find the fuse to get it back working. Which one is it?

fuse panel cover should name each circuit fuse. for example; "tail lights 20A, or interior lights 15A or instrument cluster15A" also, you can look in owners manual for schematic of fuse panel. if all fuses are good, your dash light is out. dash light is generally in the tail light circuit.
