INSTRUMENT CLUSTER ILLUMINATION FAILED

Hi James.

Thanks a heap for your advice.

None of the fuzes had failed, however I found that after checking, reseating them all in the main fuze module fixed the issue.

I appreciate your help.

Steve.

Not a problem i will say that if that fixed the issue you will need to most likely replace or clean the fuse panel very well.

    Almost forgot if you do decided to clean the panel the back of it is the place to clean. Also make sure you disconnect the battery and let it set for at least 30 min before you clean to let the power back-ups die. This precaution is incase of moisture from whatever you use to clean with.

I have an 06 ford explorer the instrument cluster lights and radio lights don't work


Are these the lights you are talking about ?
Instrument Cluster and Panel Illumination The instrument cluster and panel illumination is used to provide backlighting to the instrument panel, switches, and control components when the headlamp switch is in either the PARKING LAMPS ON or HEADLAMPS ON position. The level of intensity is adjustable by rotating the instrument panel dimmer switch either up to increase intensity or down to decrease intensity.
Fixed Backlighting When the accessory delay relay is energized, switched voltage is supplied to the non-dimmable components and switches.
Dimmable Backlighting When the parking lamps or the headlamps are in the ON position the smart junction box (SJB) monitors the input from the instrument panel dimmer switch. The SJB sends a pulse-width modulated (PWM) voltage to the dimmable components and switches based on input received from the instrument panel dimmer switch. The SJB also sends a message over the controller area network (CAN) to the audio unit, and the instrument cluster to indicate the backlighting intensity level.
If you don't know about PWM an smart junction box your better off taking your vehicle to a quailified repair shop ! You don't the diagnostic tools or technical information . May have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the SJB (computer ). Do you know where SJB is located ?

Why aren't lights for center console on the shifter working?


Could have a wiring problem , a wiring pin backed out of a connector ! If you don't know about automotive electrical an wiring diagrams an electrical wiring trouble shooting I suggest you take it to a ASE certified repair shop .
Instrument Cluster and Panel Illumination The instrument cluster and panel illumination is used to provide backlighting to the instrument panel, switches, and control components when the headlamp switch is in either the PARKING LAMPS ON or HEADLAMPS ON position. The level of intensity is adjustable by pushing the instrument panel dimmer switch either up to increase intensity or down to decrease intensity.
The dimmable backlighting components are:
  • Instrument cluster
  • Hazard switch
  • Rear defroster switch
  • Message center switches
  • Parking aid switch (if equipped)
  • Transmission range selector
  • Fog lamp switch
The non-dimmable backlighting components are:
  • Driver front door lock and power window control switch
  • Passenger front door lock and power window control switch
  • Driver rear door power window control switch
  • Passenger rear door power window control switch
Principles of Operation
The instrument cluster sends a signal to the instrument panel dimmer switch. The instrument cluster provides a variable pulse width modulated (PWM) signal to the dimmable backlighting components in accordance with the position of the instrument panel dimmer switch.
  1. Verify the customer concern.
  1. Visually inspect the following for obvious signs of mechanical or electrical damage.

    Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
    • Instrument panel dimmer switch
    • Smart junction box (SJB) fuse(s):
      • 7 (10A)
      • 15 (30A)
    • Circuitry
    • Illumination bulbs
    • Instrument cluster

    1. If an obvious cause for an observed or reported concern is found, correct the cause (if possible) before proceeding to the next step.
    1. NOTE: Make sure to use the latest scan tool release software.
      If the cause is not visually evident, connect the scan tool to the data link connector (DLC).
    1. NOTE: The vehicle communication module (VCM) LED prove-out confirms power and ground from the DLC are provided to the VCM.
      If the scan tool does not communicate with the VCM:
      • Check the VCM connection to the vehicle.
      • Check the scan tool connection to the VCM.
      • Refer to Section 418-00 , No Power To The Scan Tool, to diagnose no communication with the scan tool.
    1. If the scan tool does not communicate with the vehicle:
      • Verify the ignition key is in the ON position.
      • Verify the scan tool operation with a known good vehicle.
      • Refer to Section 418-00 to diagnose no response from the powertrain control module (PCM).
    1. Carry out the network test.
      • If the scan tool responds with no communication for one or more modules, refer to Section 418-00 .
      • If the network test passes, retrieve and record the continuous memory DTCs.
    1. Clear the continuous DTCs and carry out the self-test diagnostics for the instrument cluster.

Instrument cluster lights sometimes work but not very often


Best advice is to obtain a Chilton/Haynes repair manual that covers your make/model/year. None of mine cover your year. But our 1995 Sephia has a dodgey instrument cluster that simply dies every now and again. In every instance, we found a blown fuse in the Meter Position on the fuse panel. You may well have a fuse that is failing.

How do I replace dash light bulbs on a 2007 Ford Escape?


What lights are not working ? The instrument cluster illumination is inoperative or all the lights ,radio , heater control head, all the switches that would be back lighted.
  • The climate control panel illumination is inoperative , The passenger door lock control switch illumination is inoperative. Could need new dimmer switch , new instrument cluster. When installing a new instrument cluster, it is necessary to upload the module configuration to the scan tool. Following installation of the new instrument cluster, download the module configuration from the scan tool into the new instrument cluster. Refer to Section 418-01 .

    Did not pass state inspection (vehicle)


    First the fault codes,
    U110C is No Fuel Level Bus Message
    U0155 is No Cluster Bus Message.
    Unfortunatly you have to be able to communicate with the instrument cluster with your scanner to diagnoise and I do not think an aftermarket scanner can do this.

    Dash lights will not work?


    Check that your tailights/parking lights are working (not the headlights) as this fuse and relay feeds all the instument lights too.... Fuse 15amp TAIL & Tailight Relay

    If not then check:
    The rheostat (also known as the dimmer switch) may be faulty
    as it controls all the illumination of all the backlight bulbs and other dimable switches/indicators.

    In general bulbs all together draw a fair amount of current so it is possible that the wiring or ground at the major supply junction feeders has failed but that is a less common problem.

    So check the rheostat dimmer wiring area first as all illumination power goes through it.

    There is further simple testing we can do with the three wires at the rheostat you can check the entire illumination system.
    If you jumper the white/blk to the white/blk all the illumination lights should come on (that means the rheostat is bad).

    Or use a voltmeter and measure the green rehostat wire to ground it should be 12volts (if not time to check the fuse, relay and wiring)

    If not then finally declare the instrument panel faulty (like burned up circuit board trace).

    Note of interest: the rheostat also controls (dims) other switches not associated with the instrument cluster such as the cigarette lighter bulb and hazard switch and radio player and A/C control switch. So if those are dimming but not the instrument panel backlights then yes the instrument cluster needs fixing or a very close wiring inspection.

    The transistors are BST80, the numbers are just SMD codes, but the reason to make transistor to fail is the illumination layer is faulty. There is also a transformer which may have open circuit You should check that either
