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.

Check the bulbs they are double filamented with the larger filament used for the tailights Check the fuse for tailights/parking lights/dash lights Hi there, here is a video on how to change the tailights on an 02 http://youtu.be/1qKHlObZ2eM cheers Nick

I assume you referring to the instrument panel lights,,, first remove the dash ,,,and the remove the screws for the panel,,, then flipping the panel over you find the plug sockets for the small bulbs,,,some twist quarter turn >

Usually if your dash lights are out then your tail lights may also be out but sometimes that isn't the case. The headlight dimmer switch is usually the culprit but I would check fuses first

you probably need to change your fuses you probably need to change your fuses

if someone put an aftermarket radio in it and didnt know what they were doing it will short out all the lights

the dash lights went out in our older 1995 monti Carlo does the whole dash need to be taken apart or are you able to change lamps from behind

you have a bad headlight switch. easy to change out it's just a tiht fit under the dash

turn the knob on the left side of the steering wheel on the dash. It will brighten the dash, and radio lights by turning it to the right and it will dim the lights by turning it to the left.

check the dome light fuse that could be the problem.......or interior fuse Instrument lights.

It does have both tail lights as well as dash lights

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.

to change the lights you remove the dash cluster and replace the bulbs. the number for the bulbs are 197

unless your dimmer is turned down..... blown fuse or bad headlight switch. that's about it..

tailight/parking/dash lights - look for blown fuse
