Often the lighter and dash lights are on the same circuit, if the power port doesn't work then you got some fuses out most likely as jigsawbill has mentioned.

Changing the bulbs can be a difficult task, involving the removal of some of the dash panel and such. Check the fuses as it is doubtful that all the bulbs have gone bad at once.

I have a 1999 Chevy suburban. Fuel pump was replaced also replaced computer. When you turn on the key no lights come on (check engine and all) will turn over but won't start


Did you have the computer programmed to the vehicle? Could be the reason for the no start. No lights could be the plug at the back of the instrument panel. Unplug it, then plug it back.

'95 Lincoln town car. Husband was driving uphill and the digital dash suddenly went dark. Radio is working and a/c is not. Exterior light still working and so are interior lights besides the dash


Could be a bad wire possibly chaffing or grounding out to to another wire or frame. Check your fuses. You may want to pull the dash out and check that wiring as well

How do I get my display panel for miles to empty to light up it went dark awhile ago and does not illuminate now


There is an LED bulb behind the instrument panel that needs to be replaced. Those things can also not function if the sender is not working. Or, it may be your car's computer. Get someone to find the error code and tell you which of the problems it is. Then you can go about fixing it.

Instrument panel light malfunctioning.


I have a buddy with a Jimmy and his lights did something similar, but once the dash illumination quit, nothing would make them come back on. We ended up replacing the entire light switch assembly, and it fixed it. We assume the dash illumination dimmer switch was shorted out. You may try getting a can of contact cleaner and taking the switch out and spraying all electrical connections related to your lighting to clean them up, THEN look into a new switch if that doesnt help. Hope this helped!!

Gluster gauge won't illuminate


Hello hayeizmyhome...Very low mileage for a 1990 model. However... this is usually around the mileage interval the dreaded instrument cluster, panel and dash light failures start...lights will flicker, then go out, gauges will start going up and down, lcd's will become hazey and hard to read....etc.
The instruments are illuminated both day and night while the ignition is on.
When the ignition is off, the panel goes dark and you can’t see the gauges at all.
The lexus has an electronic circuit board behind the inst. cluster that has been the problem. Very expensive repair if done by dealer.
*TIP* This circuit board can be repaired if you know a good electrical technician much cheaper.
The recommended timing belt replacement interval on the LS is 120k...water pump should be replaced also, the timing belt runs the water pump. The LS has a non-interference engine, meaning if the belt breaks, no damage will be done to the engine...
Hope this answers your questions..and your lexus runs for many more miles...with proper care and maintainnace, it will.

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan. Whenever the ABS warning light comes on, there seems to be some sort of short that causes the rest of the instrument panel to die. No illumination, no gages working. When the ABS...


I had the same problem. Abs light would come on and I would lose all dash instruments. Hit a bump on the road and abs light would go off and dash would come back on. What I did to fix problem, lol I slaped the dash just to the right of instrument panel and it all came back to life. There seems to be a short there, and I slaped it back 3 times in a week and now for the last month it has stayed on.
