There should be. It's not a big problem if there isn't. It probably just blew. It's a simple repair for a trained technician. (I wouldn't recommend trying it yourself unless you're familiar with this type of work.)

Dash, dome, map lights flicker. Even when keys are not in the truck. mirrors, pwr locks and gages not working. Checked fuses, battery cables/connection. Guessing its wiring. No clue where to start..


Do you have a 'dimmer switch' on your dashboard?

A dimmer switch allows you to reduce the power /light to the instrument gauges for night driving. A faulty dimmer switch can cause those problems you describe (I'm in the UK and drive a 1998 Jeep which has an identical problem...)

If you don't have a dimmer switch the fault is likely to be a loose bulb in the instrument cluster- the gauges, or a wiring problem in the dashboard.

My dials on the dashboard don't light up


Check all the fuses for the instrument panel lighting.

Check all the light bulbs behind the instrument panel.

Replace all burnt fuses and light bulbs.

Where is the fuse for dashboard lights on 1995 suburban

Dash lights and running lights dont work


At the instrument panel fuse block, check 15A fuse 10 (indicators). In the relay center, check 10A fuse 8 (speedometer).

For "back lights" problem: At the left underhood fuse block, check the 20A HEADLAMP BREAKER. At the instrument panel fuse block, check 15A fuse 6C. Both of these supply power to the lamp control module. If you set the park lamp switch to the on position, the tail part of the tail/stop/turn lamps should light, the separate tail lamps should light, the license lamps should light, and the rear marker lamps should light. If any of these don't light check for burned out lamps, bad sockests, and bad wiring or missing grounds (black wires)

My dashboard lights are not working can not drive at night


Power for the instrument cluster passes through fuse 6 in the battery junction box and is applied to the main light switch. When that switch is set to park, 12V power passes through 5A fuse 18 in the central junction box and is applied to the dimmer module which is part of the main light switch. The dimmer output goes to the instrument cluster as well as a bunch of other stuff. If you have to troubleshoot, just work your way through the circuit as I described it, checking fuses etc. until you find the problem.

The dashboard light is very dim and the light is out by the gear shift, where can I locate the switch if there is any to brighten the lights?


The is an adjuster light that lightens or darkens your instrument cluster. As for the gear shift light, that is a bulb that is located behind your instrument cluster.
