While I check my files,the quickest way to check fuses is with a test light.These can be bought at most electronic or automotive parts stores really cheaply.
earth one end and probe each side of each fuse with the ignition on and lights on if you want.
The fuses that light both sides are good
lit one side only are blown or bad connection-REPLACE with the same color(amperage)
not lit at all,no power supply,either a fault or usually just not powered at that time.
I hope this helps you,or get back to me with your findings

SOURCE: my dashboard has no lights

Are all the lights in the dash out? if not, it is the bulb, the bad news is you have to remove the instrument cluster to replace the bulbs, there is no access from the rear that allows you to get your hand in there.

SOURCE: I have an Hyundai Elantra and the dashboard lights

if the dash lighs are out, did you try turning the knob that turns them off and dims them. without the book, it may be difficult, but I would think the fuse would be small like 3, 5 or 7.5 amps. that should narrow it down. test fuses using a test light. turn the hadlamp switch on and touch each fuse, both sides. the fuse that lights up on one side, but not the other is the bad one. if you look real close on the ends of the fuse the ends are open where you can poke the end of the test light in there andt est for voltage. if you ck fuses and both sides are dead, that means that particular fuse isnt powered up. dont worry about those, but when you turn the headlights on, the fuse for the dash will have power.

SOURCE: dashboard light dont come on

yep most likely a fuse has blown or if you have a dimmer switch for the dash lights it may be turned all the way down

How do i fix my dashboard lights on my 1986 chevy nova?


Turn the light switch on and check your tail lights. Back then the tail and dash lights work on the same circuit inside the headlight switch so if one was out so was the other. If this is the case you need a new headlight switch. If not, there should be a fuse in your panel marked "instr". that's for the dash lights. Hope this helps.

Dashboard lights dont work fuses appear ok but dont know which fuse controls dash lights


The parking and tail lights are usually on the same fuse as the dash lights so if the outside lights are working it sounds like the instrument dimmer control has failed. The electronic bits inside the control for these lights sometimes go faulty. A temporary fix is to remove the wiring plug that attaches to the back of the dimmer control and put a jumper wire across the terminals. If dash lights then work then replace dimmer control.

My dashboard lights dont turn on but my headlights turn on


It's usually a fuse. Depending on the car, when the dashboard lights go out, so do the taillights. On my car it's a 10A fuse for the instrument panel.
