Need more info. If by dash you mean the instrument cluster and the blower conroller for the heater and the transmition postition lights plus the tail light, then yes, you may very well have a blown fuse. Also you could try turning your dimmer switch up until you controlls illuminate. Also you could check your dimmer to see if it's broken or the head light switch to see if it is not making contact to turn the interior lights on. You could also check for a ground on the system that may be sucking down the voltage so the lights cannot illuminate. If it is just on the heater or shifter then look that up, it's already been answered.

You may be looking at a fuse issue, possibly a blown one for the dash lights. As far as the tail light on the drivers side, I would check the bulb. They have two elements in the bulb, one for the tail light and the other is for the brake light. So one may be intact, do not let that fool you.

SOURCE: No tail lights, tag light, dash board lights in 97 Nissan Maxima

If you don't have a manual, just get a test light, and ground it to your door hinge. At the back of every fuse, you will see part of the metal filament showing through. Touch your test light to each side of the fuse. You should have power to both sides of every fuse (when your key is on). If no voltage on one side, the fuse is burnt.

SOURCE: my dash board and tail lights wont work. How do i

If in fact the fuses are ok then chances are it in the headlamp switch.

You can remove the headlamp switch and using a test light check the wires one at a time while moving the dimmer switch up and down. If you don't find a wire that fades from full bright test light to nothing then the headlight switch needs replaced. If you do find that the dimmer wire is working then chances are you either have a bad ground or a broken wire.

Where is the fuse for the instrument panel back lighting? Idiot lights all work, but the main lighting for the entire instrument panel does not work.


The tail lights and the dash lights are on the same fuse, so , if you don't have dash lights then there is a good chance that your tail lights are out too. There is a fuse in the fuse box on the drivers side end of dashboard, which can only be accessed if the door is open, replace the one marked "tail lamps " and see if this doesn't fix it.

96 dodge ram 2500 tail lights and instrument panel lights quit working at the same time all other lights work help please!!!


Check your tail light fuse, on the dodge ram the dash lights and tail lights use the same fuse so if the tail light fuse blows your dash lights will go out to alert you of no tail lights.

Do you own a test light? Check for power at wires behind socket? Clean socket good , check contact spots for bulb & clean any rusty side of the socket with emery cloth, or sandpaper, for good contact also.
