Dash lights ?

Hi i recently changed the cigarete lighter in a 95 hyundai excell and realised that the light bulb had blown. Rather than replacing the bulb i just removed it from the circuit , and now i have no dash lights, it doesnt make sense to me have i blown the bulb in the dash or do i have to include the small 12v 1.2w globe for the cigarete lighter, i take it they are on the same circuit,.... .

They are on the same circuit but they are wired in parallel not series so having a missing bulb will not effect the circuit..
you need to test for power.. the switch sends power to th fuse and for the dash lamps goes through the dimmer switch if there is one fitted, then to the instrument cluster circuit board..

Having trouble with fuse # 17th


From my wiring diagram power for the radio is fuse # 29 a 25amp fuse! The fuse for cig lighter also powers the DLC Pin # 16 . The DLC is the connector under the dash left of the steering wheel . This is where you would hook up a scan tool ! Are you saying by part dash lights ,that some of the dash lights are out ? Could just be some burnt out bulbs ! Was fuse # blown ? Did you cig light work before ? Could have a shorted out cig. lighter or the outlet ! To fix dash bulbs the instrument cluster would need to be pulled ! How to Replace Dashboard Lights In Depth

1995 hyundai excell sprint front left headlight not working, works fine on high beam, bulb is not blown


Bulb can be 1/2 blown. See if 1 of the 2 elements (lo/hi) are broken. That year MAY have a separate fuse for the left and right lights. It more likely has a relay.

Lights on the climate controls won't go on. Is that a burned bulb or a fuse issue?


If the other lights in the dash work, the dome light/radio bezel lights work, and the cigarette lighter works, it's a blown bulb.

If any of the other lights don't work as well, it's possibly a fuse, but still could be multiple blown bulbs, which can happen when power fluctuates but does not cause the fuse to open.

Dash lights and tail lights wort work


Check your fuses. Dash lights and tail lights are on the same fuse. Check the fuses electrically, just looking at them is not enough. Replace any blown or damaged fuses with fuses of the same rating, NEVER use a fuse of a higher rating. If the fuse blows again, you have a short circuit to ground. Check all the front and tail lamps and their wiring and don't forget the trailer connector if you have one fitted..

HI THERE I TAKE IT THE BULBS HAVE GONE BEHIND YOUR DASH FIRSTLY MAKE SURE THE REST OF THE DASH LIGHTS ARE OK LIKE HEATER/SWITCHES ETC IF THEY ARE OK THEN WE CAN RULE OUT FUSES CAUSE THEY ARE NORMALLY ON SAME FUSE.
