    Cigarette lighter works. Dash lights appear dim. Haven't checked fuses? What all can I check myself? Thanks for your help.

    How do you get at interior fuses in a jeep commander?

  • Coss May 11, 2010

    Have you checked the fuses?

    also, has anything else stopped working? Like the cigarette lighter, or dash lights?

The easiet way to check the fuses is to buy a 12v circuit tester.
You connect the circuit tester to ground (any bare metel on the car, like a bolt into the firewall, or door latch etc) and then put the tester to the metal contact point on the fuse (each fuse has 2 contacts on the top)
Test one of the points, if it lights, you have power, if you test the other side of the fuse, and it's out (this is while the fuses are plugged into the fuse block) then the fuse is bad, if it lights, the fuse is good.

The testers only cost a couple of $ and you can find them at any auto parts store.

Note, there are a number of fuses that don't have power unless the key is turned on.

You can also pull the fuse out and do a visual inpsection to see if it's good, but this isn't always easy to see.

Make sure to replace any bad fuses with the same size fuse that you took out of it.

Interior lights not working on your car with a console and bucket seats


If you own a car with a console and bucket seats,and the interior lights worked and just stopped.First thing to check is the ash tray,a lot of people pull the lighter out since they dont smoke and put loose change in the ash tray.I have found hundreds of cars where the change overflows or just missed the ash tray and a coin went down in the lighter socket and blows the interior dome light fuse,first remove the coin then replace the fuse.Place a cork in the lighter socket or go to the auto parts store and get a cap for the lighter.

My car horn is stuck on (very loud) and I removed the fuse for the horn, but now my radio or interior lights dont work. What do i do?


Hello,

was the radio and interior light working before you removed the fuse for the horn? In the process of removing the fuse for the horn, you must have mistakenly tempered with the fuse for the radio and interior light.

So I would suggest you go back to the fuse box and deep them in properly because the interior and radio fuse might not be contacting properly.

I hope this makes sense to you.

Good luck.

Car interior lights dont work


depending on what lights dont work, i know this is a long shot but, it could be possible you accidently bumped the dimmer switch all the way to the off position. I went 3 months thinking my dash was shot, when it was just the dimmer switch:)

There is another fuse box under the back seat that has the fuse for the interior lights. I have the same problem. I keep replacing fuses but they keep blowing. I don't know what to do.

2005 nisson altima interior lights not functioning


Hopefully you've gotten your car fixed by now, but mine just did the same thing today 4/25/2010. While changing the dome light, I blew the 10 amp 'Batt Saver' fuse located inside the car driver side fuse area. The mini fuses in the interior are nearly impossible to check if they are blown without a tester. I bought a cheap one for $5 at AutoZone and discovered. Once replaced, all worked fine. Hope this helps someone else with the same problem I had today.

Interior light


No. If you see that the bulb was burned, you can replace it yourself, you dont need to take off the battery terminal since taking it off might cause more trouble to your car. dont worry you cant be electrocuted by a 12V dc by just replacing the bulb
