Dashboard In a 1997 ford expedition won't come on

If you are talking about the instrument panel and radio lights, one possibility is a broken panel light dimmer rheostat (This is not the same as the headlight dimmer switch). Try turning it to full brightness. If at some point the lights suddenly come on, that's definitely your problem. If the lights don't come on, it could still be broken.

I have seen an older vehicle driven by a person who didn't notice the instrument panel lamps were burning out until the last one went - maybe all you have to do is replace all of the bulbs. :)

Also, check the instrument panel fuse. If it's blown, you'll have to track down the wiring problem that caused the fuse to blow. Merely replacing the fuse is just asking for the problem to happen again at the worst possible moment - such as on a dark road on a dark night where there is a known speed trap, when you're low on fuel, and suddenly you're unable to see either the speedometer or the fuel gauge.

Dash light dimmer

Replace the dash light bulb, sometimes filament is broken, but bulb works the same.

If bulb is ok , then is a bad wiring.

If all of the lights are out including the HVAC panel, I would look for a blown fuse or problem with the dimmer switch.

The lights on my dash board do not work. the instrument gauge still works, but the lights do not. is it a fuse? and if so, what is the location to replace it?

It is possible that there is a blown fuse. However, did you check to see that the panel light dimmer switch is not turned down? The panel lamps on your vehicle are actually controlled by the Body Control Module (BCM). There are several fuses that supply power to the BCM. If your panel light dimmer switch is not turned down, you will need a scanner to find out what is wrong with your panel lamps.
If you have a blown fuse you need to find out WHY it is blown! Simply replacing it WILL NOT fix your vehicle.

How do you fix the dash board lights, on a 1994 toyota paseo?.....I can't read how fast I'm going, at night, how do i fix that>

Usually this is a simple fix. Locate your fuse panel under your driver's side dash on your left. Check your fuses and see if any are blown. This can be determined by looking at the little wire inside the fuse to make sure it's not separated. If this doesn't resolve the problem you have either blown bulbs inside your dash or you could have a faulty dimmer switch. To determine this you can disconnect the dimmer switch plug and jump a wire across the plugs and see if they come on them. If they still don't come on then the problem could be dash light bulbs. This can be very difficult to change and is usually best left to a mechanic.

this either a fuse that bew or your dimmer switch that makes the lights brighter and dimmer on the dash is turned down all the way if the fuse is good and it's nit turned down all the way then the bulbs are all blown or the dimmer switch is bad

Speedometer gauge/climate control lights dont work

Look for a dimmer wire,, sounds like your radio dont have the option for the car dimmer switch,,

the power for these lights run through the dimmer wire for the radio. ether its not hooked up or the radio dont have the option for it.

there is a way to bypass the radio dimmer option,, BUT you have to know what your doing or you could fry something.

look for Car Radio Illumination/dimmer Wire: should be Green.
