Please do not mistake this as an insult but I must ask... Check dash dimmer switch settings (on headlamp switch) if set is ok. Next would probably be a bad ground wire to instrument cluster and radio lamp circut

1991 geo tracker 4wd....my starter started to fail frequently but would push start. Then starter rarely worked...had parts store test system...said my battery had a dead cell and was headed for failure....


There are several wires that go to the battery that you need to make sure you hooked back up. Also make sure all the wires or cables going to the battery terminal and tight and secure. It sounds like you have a loose or missing connection.

I have a 1994 Buick Park Ave and the interior lights have just started coming on and off during the night for no reason and the car is not running.


These lights are actuated only by connection of the ground wire(white) to the body to complete the circuit. The only place these connections are made is at the door buttons and the rheostat on the dash that dims the dash lights also when knob is turned counter clockwise to dim the dash lights and clockwise to brighten them and on past that bright point to turn on the interior lights. One of the door wires may be bared and close to the body and arcing, making the lights come on and when the wire warms it pulls away from the body and lights go out. You need to remove the kick panel to access this wire and see if it's still plugged onto the back of the button connection and check for bare spots on wire.

I hooked up a dual radio to my 1987 dodge ram the radio comes on but no sound and the dash lights went out


Sounds like you have the stereo ground wired into the wire that dims the light on the factory stereo when the headlights turn on. Rewire stereo with proper ground, check all other wiring to insure it's done properly,replace blown fuses for lights & stereo. Should be good to go.

Dim dashboard lights and problem starting


Could be a loose or dirty battery connection, poor battery, or alternator. Check all the cables and connections to your starter. Clean your battery posts. Have your alternator and battery checked. It sounds like you are either running off just the battery or just the alternator. One of them is not right.

All the dash display lights suddenly went out


Modern CAN-bus electronics can do some very strange things when the battery voltage is very low and your description of events matches almost exactly with those experienced by a friend shortly before he needed to replace his car battery.

My own experience tells me some stereos should not be fitted to some cars or a discharged battery will result (unless the wiring is suitably modified). It is important to read the instructions - carefully!

I strongly suggest you have your battery and charging system tested and the stereo removed until it is discovered to be compatible...
