How do you change the dash lights on a 1991 VW Jetta?
First make sure fuses are o.k.,remove trim bezel from in front of radio/dash area.Unscrew dash cluster,pull forward enough to disconnect speedo cable(or discon. from counter box under hood).Unplug enough to tilt down speedo clstr,remove bulbs.
If none of the dash lights climate control lights or the shifter light will come on in your 1991 Mustang LX how do you fix this?
If the fuses are all good (which, I bet they are), you most likely have a faulty dimmer control. Almost all the dash and interior trim lights are wired through this switch to allow you to dim them. If it has gone bad, that could cause them all to stop working. Fairly inexpensive and easy to change. Check the fuses-- under the dash and/or under the hood.
You probably don't need to change the dash lights. On the headlight panel there is a control to dim or brighten the dash lights. This same control allows you to turn them completely off. I don't remeber on that particular car if the light switch rotates or has a separate switch but all cars have this feature.
check fuses then check burned out bulbs, also there's a little side scrolling switch that adjusts the brightness, you may check that, it's by the headlight switch If none of your dash lights work ( dash, oil pressure, oil temp, cigarett lighter control, and instrument cluster back lighting) check gray striped wire in molex plug in back of fuse box. Move wires slightly with your finger if you get lights to come on. unplug connector…
1995 VW Jetta Celebration Edition and at night the dash lights do not light up so you can see the speedometer or the tachometer The clock and the mileage lights are on but nothing else?
No the dash lights should be with your parking lights. comment2: They are on separate circuits. Power usually goes from the "taillight fuse" to a small 5 amp dash light fuse and then to the dash dimmer wheel or knob. Then it feeds the dash lights. A blown tail light fuse makes the dash lights go out also. A blown dash fuse only affects the dash lights.
What is the problem when the dashboard light on a 1991 Dodge Dakota will not turn on with the lights?
Usually a fuse. when the fuse blows the dash lights AND tail lights dont work. If your tail lights work and dash lights dont, check bulbs, if all blown at once you may have a shorting problem. If bulbs are good you may have a bad connection. Tracing wires is a big job. Get yourself a good quality test light.
