    My car is a 2001 leganza (don't know if that matters) but anyway, I checked both of those fuses and they are good. I don't have a cig. lighter but I did notice when I plugged my cell charger in it I have to wiggle it around to make it there is a shortage and the charger is good. Could this be the problem? I have checked all fuses. Does the dash has a bulb?

    Thanks for your help. I found out what happened. My teen son and one of his friends tried to install a cd player and messed the wiring up. Now the passenger tail light isn't working or dash lights and I have to find someone that will work on it.

The problem is the socket in the car, it is not a short it is a poor connection, replace the cig lighter, you can buy a universal one from a parts store fairly cheap.

2006 ford Taurus dash lights not working and alarm when headlights are left on is also not working

If you have the owner's manual, check the chart showing which fuse is for the dash lights and that alarm. Try replacing that/those fuse(s) to see if you're back in working order. (Not sure where your fuse panel would be, but try the area under the dashboard on the driver's side.)

Dash board lights not working

Locate the knob or dial that controls the brightness of the dashboard lights. If the control is not immediately evident, check your owner's manual.

  • 2 Make sure the brightness control is turned on. If it is and the lights aren't working, the problem may be a bad fuse.
  • 3 Check the fuse that controls the dashboard lights (see How to Fix a Faulty Car Fuse). Replace the fuse if necessary.
    Find the fuse box (see A). It is usually located under the dashboard to the left of the steering wheel, at about knee level. Many cars have additional fuse boxes in the engine compartment. Check your owner's manual or call the dealer for the exact location(s)

  • Open the fuse box cover and locate the blown fuse. There are two ways to find the bad fuse: Look for a fuse with a melted center strip (see B, which shows two types of broken fuses). Or, if you know which device isn't working--for example, the radio--look for the fuse that handles that device. The fuse panel may have labels for each device, or the information may be in your owner's manual.
  • 3 Remove the bad fuse with a fuse puller (a small pair of plastic tweezers that should come with the fuse box). Or use a pair of needle-nose pliers.
  • 4 Check the number on the bottom or side of the bad fuse. This indicates the amperage.
  • 5 Buy a new fuse with the same amperage and push it into the slot in the fuse box with your fingers.

    I can`t find the fuse for the dashboard lights on my 2000 jetta.

    First, make sure it's not that your dimmer switch has been turned all the way down.
    Check fuse 22 and 23. If they're good then you may have a bad ground somewhere. Check the board and fuse box under the battery (yes, I know - but thats where vw located it) for corrosion.
