Normally, when the dash lights are out, so too are the tail lights. Check your tail light fuse.

It would be very unusual for all of the lights to go out at one time. If in fact, this is what happened, you should be able to reach up behind the instruments and remove the lights one at a time.

Thanks for your question @

    Im sorry, I cannot answer that question - I dont know. I am sure that of the cars that I have owned (English Ford, American Ford, Desoto Fire Dome, Renault, Plymouyth Fury, Dodge Ram Van, Chevrolet Caprice, and others ... when the dash lights were out ... so too were the tail lights. Look for a short in the tail lights. There isnt much that can really go 'wrong' with the dash lights ... mostly printed circuits while the tail lights are wire and subject to damage.

My dash light just stopped working on my 99 deville

That is an easy fix, it is one of two issues.
(1) Check the fuse for the dash lights. If the fuse is ok , it will be (2) burnt out bulbs. For #2 - you have to remove the bezel surrounding the dash cluster. Then look to see if the bulbs are good or have burnt out. The new bulbs are available at almost any auto parts store.

How to change the bulb in dash of saturn L300?

In the 2000-2002 l series, if you look around the black cowling that surrounds the dash, it's held on by two screws, torx bits most likely. Remove those , pull the cowling out, then look on the 4 corners. You'll see 4 screws, and they are probably torx bits as well. Remove them, then just pull the dash straight out, there are no electrical connections to remove. The bulb that lights up the odometer is a dealer only bulb.

Ford taurus tss 2004 map lights work but dome light wont come on

It is possible the bulb in the dome light is burnt out or there is a bad connection @ the bulb. That is at least where you start. you will need to remove the dome light cover & wiggle the bulb while the door is open, or best to have two doors open to remove the possibility of a faulty switch. If it still doesn't flicker or start to work remove the bulb & inspect it to see if the filament is broken. If you can't tell best to replace the bulb & try again.
Please advise if you need more help.

How do i replace light bubs on the dash panel and door button, do i pull the button up or what to replace the light bubs.

These bulbs last a long time and if they'er all out you might find the running lights ( taillights arn't working too. ( blown fuse) the panel lights are on a separte fuse but they run off of the tailight fuse. the tailights are really all the lights that come on with the headlight switch except the headlights themselfs. Then that circuit entergizes the panel lights thea light the dash gauges the door panels switches the any console lights the car can have. the dome circuit is another fuse that lights the floor and dome ( if their is one) and any landou lights (piller)
sometimes this fuse is removed or blow and the dash lights don't work, Or sometimes just a few. The cluster can be removed but not all of the bulbs can be bought at the parts store as the lights are to be replaced by rebuilding the cluster and can't be serviced. Agin some of the door switches are made this way also and you have to replace the switch to get a good light in them.

Brake lights not working and trun lights

You have 3 things to check. First the bulbs and that is easy. You will either unscrew the
lens cover and get access to the bulb. The other access is in the trunk. You may need to move
the liner to get to a twist-loose type bulb holder. Replace one bulb and hit the brakes. Does it light up?
If so, replace others not working. If the bulb doesnt light then check your fuses. Your fusebox cover
should have a list of what the fuses protect. Look for taillights or brake lights. If those dont get it fixed
you may have a bad brake light switch that is on the brake pedal. Get upside down under the dash and locate the switch mounted above the pedal. These are farely easy to remove and should have a connector
that you pinch to release the switch from the wiring harness. Call around for the best price/availablity and swap a new one in.

I have no dash lights on my 4runner and cant find any burnt out fuses. Is it likely that the light itself is burnt out?

There are several bulbs in the dash that come on with the headlight switch so it is unlikely that they all burnt out at the same time.I would check the instrument light dimmer switch for power in and out of it before blameing dash bulbs.You should check the plug to the light switch to check for power out of it and to look for burnt wire ends.

How to get to stop light in back window of 95 lincoln cont. Bulb is burnt out. do we change from trunk side or inside of car? also have a problem with interior lights staying on for a long time after car...

First, the stop light bulb is accessible from inside the car. The cover can be removed by pressing down on the center of the unit and pull back toward the front of the car. Once off, you will have access to the bulb itself

You have a sticky door switch. Apart from replacement, best course of action is to spray the switch (all throughout the inside of the door/lock) with WD-40. Since you're unsure which switch is sticking, repeat this procedure on all doors. Once thoroughly lubricated, open and close the doors several times. This should fix your sticky switch problem.. Best of luck.
