Instrument lights can be a real pain if you don't understand basic electrical theory. Locate the fuse panel in your Buick and put a voltmeter to it to determine whether it is a blown fuse. If it is only a blown fuse causing this problem then you could "bridge the gap" to bypass the fuse using the correct conductors on the voltmeter and if the lights go on it's just a fuse problem. If this is the case try to decide what may have caused this fuse to blow. Because if there's a short circuit behind your dash ( often caused by faulty wiring or connections ) if you don't fix that first you'll just continue to blow more and more fuses. If you recently had a stero, radio, or CD player installed inspect it carefully to be sure that all wires were properly taped off. Often times the dimmer switch may break or pieces in it that create the dimming effect ( which is called a rheostat?? ) may require replacement if metal is not touching metal. In addition to this, become familiar with how to take off your dash panel ( ie how to remove the light knobs and where the screws are located ) if necessary so that you may be able to check a burnt out bulb. Always follow the path or the wiring to determine that all wires are indeed intact before continuing and BE CAUTIOUS OF ALL WIRES AND FUSES AND WHERE YOUR HEAD IS WHEN CHECKING BEHIND THE DASH SO THAT YOU DON"T ACTIVATE AN AIRBAG!!!
the problem is not in the fuse or a blown bulb or the rheostat. The problem lies within the board itself, I can refurbish your original instrument cluster. Contact me at ANCTechnologies at Hotmail.com.
Normally this would be wired into the Instrument Lights.
Make sure parking/tail lights are working - if not, may be a fuse If parking/tail are working - may be bulbs or switch
There are no fuses for the dash lights. Are your dash lights not working? If not, then you will need the instrument cluster refurbished. I can do this for you, contact me at ANCTechnologies at hotmail
Where is the fuses for the brakes lights Buick Rivera 1970
The is a small button in the center of the headlight switch that pops out when you depress it. Simply turn the small button to raise or lower the dash lights.
Take old lights out. Put new lights in. Done. You have just changed the interior lights on a 97 Buick Regal!
The gauges on the dash is the instrument cluster.
will the dash lights work if we use a bcm out of a different 2002 buick rendezvousand put it in my 2002 buick rendezvous
If none of the lights dim (including dash lights, speedo, etc) the dimmer switch is probably bad.
The instrument cluster is what houses the speedometer, and the gauges.
Push the button like thing next to the head light switch and twist the way u want the lights to show then push it back in
you can, but you need to be fairly good at soldering as they are soldered on the board. Find the correct size bulbs will be a challenge also. Buick had a better idea. No wonder thy went broke
Get a rock
Yes they were the same exact cluster.
It happened to my Buick after I put in Stereo. The insulation was off one of the stereo wires causing a short which killed my dash lights.The stereo worked.My dash lights didn't.Check your radio wires and make sure its not grounding out.
There are no lights. their just reflectors.
If you're looking for a Buick, I imagine it would be.
The turn signal flasher is under the instrument panel to the left of the sterring colunm brace. (note I'm still looking for mine).
Replace resistors on Instrument cluster circuit board. $1.00 @ Radioshack and about an hour of your time...
fuse relay wiring switch
they are photocells....they adjust the headlights from daytime lights to headlights when it gets dark out and vise-versa
Check the 1993 Park Avenue fuses first. Check the light dimmer switch to make sure that it is functioning. If these are ok, look for a bad wiring connection.
your buick is ovisley not super charged with coil packs because its looking for a cam sensor
