    I have the same car and my dash lights are very dim even at the highest setting. Also, recently my speedometer and my tachometer either don't work at all or register at bizarre settings (i.e., I'm going 35 and it reads 90). Evidently these cars have major wiring issues. I am going to try to obtain a wiring diagram online 2c if I can't diagnose this.

    dash lights dont or any other light that should come on when u turn your headlights on none of them work and i cant find my owners manual so i dont know witch is the fuse for it

    I have a 1995 Buick Skylark with the same problem. The fuse to check is the one for the instrument panel lights. In my car it is the first column, second fuse. This didn't solve the problem. I'm thinking a wire came loose maybe?

    I have a 2000 Buick Century with same problem. All the fuses are good and all tail lights and head lights work fine.

This is a problem with all trucks what you need to do is get the dash or cluster out and get it repaired at gm they send it out and after a few days it will be returned functional

SOURCE: dash lights,dimmer lights do not come on. dash is

Check the taillight fuse, too (15 amp fuse next to the 7.5A instrument panel fuse). If this fuse blows, the dash lights will go out, too. I don't know why they did that, but they did. The next step then is to find out why the taillight fuse blows. It has done this repeatedly on my mom's 2002 Century. Haven't found the short yet.

1994 dodge dakota my headlights and tail lights and brake lights don't work my abs and parking brake lights are on my dash lights don't work either I replaced the headlight switch and still no


These are all different circuits. The brake lights are on a 10amp fuse - the headlights are on a 50amp fuse - and the parking and dash lights are on a 20amp fuse.
Do you have power going into the headlight switch and the brake light switch ?

1st thing to check is to make sure you don't have the dimmer wheel turned off by the main headlight switch to the left of driver.

Tail lights don't work on 83 cutlass supreme


I assume you checked the bulbs and they were good? It's possible that the sockets have gone bad and need replacing. The tail lights are fused through the instrument panel lights. that fuse should be in the middle of your fuse box, marked "instr". If the fuse is good check to see if the dash lights come on when you turn the headlight switch on. If they don't then change the headlight switch. hope this helps.

Dash lights don't work 1992 jeep wrangler


try turning the headlight knob left to right several times, and jiggle the switch at night. Also check your fuse panel should be a 10 amp or less fuse that says "Insr" or something like it.

I have no dash lights, tail lights, or parking lights... I checked all the fuses and they are all good... I hooked a power line up to where the fuses belong and all the lights work when i turn on the key...


U.S. Focus?

You have at least 4 fuses in the Battery fuse box under the hood to check, plus the ones in the dash panel fuse box. Did you check them all in both places?

Trying to locate the ecm fuse to replace. cant find any diagrams for this or anything on it


the ecm fuse is in the fuse panel and is marked ecm on the fuse panel below the fuse.the fuse panel is under the dash on the drivers side,just use a test light with the key on and check all the fuses remembering the headlight/tail lights must be on and some other circuits need to be turned on.you don`t say why you are looking for the ecm fuse or the year make and model of car.

Head lights will not turn on, fuel guage missing, radio turns off


This is an old post so I don;t even know if you still have the car, but here is what I know.

1) Your radio issue is probably a relay. It is a relay bank located above your glove box. The entire glove box assembly will have to come out. This relay is a little different in appearnace thatn the others as it is skinnier and taller. It is called the Brand Name speakers/radio relay.

2) Your dash readouts are due to a burned out bulb. These are not LED. They are regular 124 bulbs. They've burned out. Banging on the dash probably allowed the filament of in the bulb to touch and temporarily worked.

3) I have a similar problem with the headlights. My headlights turn on manually, but they don't turn on like they are supposed to via automatic photo sensor. When turned on manually, the doors open and the headlights are on. When I manually turn off the headlights, the doors don't close. I've checked everything and I was told it may have something to do with the Body Control Module. I am not completely sure as this research is ongoing.
