To replace the lights in the instrument cluster, around the gauges and stuff, you have to remove the whole gauge cluster. The following steps worked on my 2002 4 door LX sedan.

1: Remove the 3 hex head screws on the top of the black gauge bezel.

2: Unsnap the two tabs on the right and left of the sterring column cover, these hold the top cover of the column on, which is attached to the gauge bezel.

3: Pull the bezel out towards you, it is held in by several snap clips, just gently pull on it and they will come out.

4: After the bezel is removed you should see the entire gauge cluster. It is held in by four more hex screws, remove these. Then carefully pull the cluster out so you can get at the single plug on the back.

5: There should be a small black lever on the plug, move it towards the other side of the plug, and it will push the plug out. (It might be hard to move but it will move, DO NOT use tools to pry on this as the plastic is kind of weak.)

6: Finally pull the cluster out, and on the back you should see the lights, I believe they twist out, but have not had to remove any of mine yet. Just pulled the cluster out to replace it.

To reinstall just reverse the process. For the plug, just set it back in the socket, and slide the lever the other way, it should pull it self in.

Sounds like you may also have a bad fuse. Dash and parking lights are often supplied by the same one.

ANSWER

Had the exact same problem w/same lights. On my 2000 SEi it was Fuse #32 in the underdash fuse panel. However, check your owners manual for fuse panel diagram to make sure your fuse is the same.

If parking lights and dash lights are not working and fuse blows out, there might be a problem with battery corrosion. Check the components specific to the circuits of the affected lights. It might be loose.

The Headlight switch is where the dash receives it's power from.

I have a 2000 Focus Wagon. My dash lights and tailights are on same fuse labeled in the book as back up lamps. In my fuse box it is #32. .

They're on a different circuit. The parking and dash lights go through the headlight switch. It could be the switch, a bad wire/connector or a burned fuse.

Need to know what about the dash board lights.

To locate the dash lights fuse on a 1999 Honda Accord to find out if it is causing the dash lights do not work when you have the parking lights on after installing an after-market radio, check the owner's manual. You can also find a fuse diagram at most auto part stores.
