Your dimmer has bad contacts, you can try to clean up the contacts or replace it.

    could be either of those. You'll have to take the dash apart to get to it either way. Search youtube for videos on dissembling the dash or replacing the instrument cluster.

Why won't the dash lights come on


A number of reasons that dash lights will not come on. Let us start with the first. Do the parking lights come on on the outside of the vehicle when turning the switch on? If so, then I would suspect that you most likely have a bad dimmer switch. That is the switch that dims the dash lights. They commonly go out.

If the parking lights are not on then I would suspect a parking light fuse. If parking light fuse is good then I would suspect a headlight switch.

Most likely, based on experience with Neons, it is usually the dimmer switch. You can buy a dimmer switch on the internet or at your local auto parts store for a relatively decent price.

Hope this helps.

Headlight switch


Pulling back on the dimmer switch is using the "flash to pass" feature common on most cars and trucks. You are putting power to the high beam circuit without using the headlight switch.
You would need to check for power in and out of the headlight switch for the headlight circuit, and then the dimmer switch. On models built after 1996 the headlight switch grounds the lights.

Dodge ram headlights wont work unless dimmer switch pushed


Could be the headlight switch or the dimmer switch.
I would check for voltage at the dimmer switch first.

This is very common. the headlight switch is bad. replace the switch and that should solve the problem.

I have a 1984 dodge 4x4 1/2 ton. the headlights dont work just the running lights work when i pull the light switch out. i bought new headlights nothing


some times when the dimmer switch on the floor goes bad the headlights will cut out. Try replacing the dimmer switch and the headlights should come back on. My 84 dodge had that exact problem.

Interior light is stuck on, I have knocked something its not a fault I just cant remember how to switch it off again


if your neon doesn't have a direct switch on the side of it or if you cant push in on the light directly, check your dash for a gauge dimmer control switch. It is probably turned all the way up and in the clicked on position. Its usually located on the drivers side near the headlight switch if your headlights aren't activated by the armetuer on the column.

I have a 04 Toyota Tacoma. I have short in the dimmer switch.


It cold just be a fuse that is loose in the fuse box causing the dash lights to come on and off. Or potentially a loose wire from the fuse box the dash lights.
