This could be a instrument cluster problem. See other questions in here on Instrument cluster check out/removal and replacement

What could be problem when the dashboard lights of a 1989 Cadillac Coupe DeVille v8 is completely off I've been told that it could be a computer problem which could cost me

Check the fuse for the instrument lights. Also there is a rheostat that is used to dim the instrument lights. If it is turned too far the lights will go out.

Your dash lights on your mdx wont work and the fuse is good?

The switch could be bad. There could be a loose connection on the fuse box, or on the rear of the instrument cluster.

1997 dodge neon speedometer not working?

Could be the speed sensor or another common problem with neons is broken solder points on the instrument cluster circuit board. To test it, see if your cruise control can keep you at speed. If so, it's the instrument cluster. If not could be the speed sensor. If you don't have cruise, then you may have to inspect the cluster for broken solder points.

2003 Chevy silverado rpm speedometer and fuel gauge stopped working rpm gauge say's 1000 rpm whenever driving.?

could be a bad instrument cluster panel, they had a recall on the instrument cluster panel. I had my speedometer stop working and was given a price to fix it and blew it off. Then the recall came and I got a new instrument cluster and that fixed the problem which they knew they had.

You have a 2000my fontera and the dash gauges only seem to work when the lights are turned on has anyone had a similar problem?

Difficult one this,can only take a guess.There may be a break in the instrument cluster printed circuit so that there is no 12v feed to the guages,then when lights are on the power to the panel lamps is starting the gauges up. Also,there could be a damaged/bent connector on the instrument multi-plug giving the same result.

Which fuse or fusible link is the correct one to change if the dash lights are out on a 1999 Maxima if it is not labeled dash lights?

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

2003 Ford Windstar if you turn your headlight switch to off your battery dies If you leave the switch in the auto position everything seems OK Can somebody tell you why?

The headlamp switch on the windstar does not actually switch the lamps. It is a signal input to the instrument cluster computer. The cluster module actually controls all lights individually. It sounds as if there may be a problem in the instrument cluster. This could be a bad module or simply a corrupted program. It will probably need a mechanic with a diagnostic computer and the programming skills to understand what it is telling him / her. Carl

Your instrument panel on a 2002 Mercedes c240 will not illuminate what could be wrong?

This is cluster failure! The instrument cluster will need to be replaced this is usually done by certified Mercedes repair facility

What could be wrong when the cluster lights dont come on on a 98 ford explorer and does anyone know what fuse number it is?

On your dash, to the right of the headlight switch, is a dimmer wheel switch for your dash lights. Check to make sure that hasn't been rotated all the way down. The owner"s manual lists the following fuses in the fuse panel on the driver's end of the dash ( visible with driver's door open) in location # 11 - 7.5 amp - instrument cluster in location # 15 - 7.5 amp - instrument cluster in location # 33 - 15 amp - instrument cluster/DRL module/headlamps or bulbs no good.

You have a 1996 Chevy corsica with 80000 miles both the speedometer and the fuel gauge don't work what could be the problem?

It could be a couple of things. Depending on the type of cluster it could be a couple of burnt out light bulbs (easy and cheap fix). Also, it could be that your cluster is dying (expensive fix). If this is the problem try a place through the internet called Mr Whizard, they rebuild instrument clusters ($200 - $300) verses a new cluster ($1000+).

What could cause the dash cluster not to work except for the gas gauge in a 87 corvette?

led lights inside cluster

How do you fix the instrument panel lights when the fuse keeps blowing on your 1989 Cadillac Fleetwood Sedan?

Tough to say. Cadillacs typically have a dimmer switch located to the left of the steering column on the dash. A positive wire goes from the fuse box to the switch, then another wire goes from the switch up to the instrument cluster. You might try disconnecting the instrument cluster and see if the fuse still blows when you turn on the lights. If so, it might mean a wire is shorting to ground somewhere between the fuse and the instrument cluster. If not, it might mean there's a short somewhere in the instrument cluster assembly. Nothing much to do except follow wires and look for any fouling or damage that might be the cause. Also, miss-matched after market lights installed in the instrument panel might be pulling more amps than what was originally intended by OEM design. That could blow the fuse as well. Good luck.

What would make the gauges on a 1987 s10 blazer go crazy when you turn the lights or radio on?

It sounds like a wiring issue. There could be a loose wire on the instrument cluster, on behind the fuse block.

What can cause dashboard light to flicker on and off on a 95 Seville?

This problem could be caused by an intermittent short in the wiring, an intermittent open circuit in the wiring, a fault in the internal wiring of the instrument cluster, or a fault with the light switch. Find out wich wire ( color coded in repair manual ) runs the dash lights and follow it with your hand to the light switch. Look for missing insulation that could be shorting against a piece of grounded metal. If you feel a section of wire that feels like the copper inside is broken it is an intermittent open circuit. If you don't find these to be the problem remove the harness from the light switch and jump the dash wire from the power wire and see if the lights still flicker. If they work properly the fault is in the light switch. If not your problem lies in your instrument cluster.

How can the DCL be replaced?

DCl stands for data communication tells you that there is no communication to the instrument cluster from the computer.The main problem is that there is a fault in the instrument cluster causing the DCL light to stay on and sometimes the oil pressure gauge could go bad can have it repaired at a few speedometer shops just look them up online.

2004 Jeep Liberty Sport What could cause a loss of all the instrument cluster lamps when the fuse tests good The Dome lights work but no cluster lights in the dash radio blower or shift console?

I'm just making a guess here. There is a instrument panel dimmer switch on the multi-function lever on the left side of the steering wheel. This lever incluces turn signal, head lights, parking lights, hi/low beam, instrument panel dimmer, dome lights, and maybe some other stuff. One you figure out how to activate the dome/courtesy lamps, just back that part of the switch off one click and that is the maximum dashlight level setting.

Why doesn't the instrument cluster lights work on your 95 Honda accord?

Could be a few things. Check the fuse first, if it's good, I'd say it's probly that the dimmer knob is either unplugged or has gonebad.

On your 2002 vue your speedometer is not working what could be the problem?

If the speedometer and the odometer are not working, I would suspect the VSS (vehicle speed sensor). If only the speedometer is not working I would suspect the instrument cluster has problems.

What could cause the rpm gauge not to work on a 2004 silverado 1500 4.8 V8 to stop working?

Bad stepper motor in instrument cluster. Very common problem. Search for "speedometer whizard" in Google.

What causes instrument panel gauges to jump all over the place in a 2004 GMC 1500?

Usually when the gauges jump around there is some kind of computer problem. Your problem can lie in the body control module or in the ECM. Without looking at it, that is a tough call. The instrument cluster could be bad too. Those are the things I would check first.

Is there a reset for the battery light on a 2002 ford windstar battery and charging system check ok?

No, there is no reset light. The light comes on when the system is not working correctly. If the charging system is working perfectly then the light should be off. Possibly it is working, but not working at it's optimum level, which would be around 13.5-14 volts.AnswerNo there is no "reset" for that. Unfortunately, there also is no easy answer to your problem. The reason is that the instrument cluster on that vehicle is a computer module that uses information it receives from the vehicle's data comunication network to make decisions about what readings to give, such as speedometer, and tachometer, and what warning lights to turn on, such as seatbelt, and battery charge lights. The instrument cluster is making a decision to turn on the battery light. either due to information it is receiving from the network, or an internal problem with the computer circuitry in the cluster itself. The cluster is also non-servicable, meaning that if there is a problem in the cluster, the entire unit must be replaced as an assembly, and is only avaiable through the dealer. A used one should not be used, due to the many different programming configurations that are out there. One from another vehicle may not work due to incompatability with other computer modules in the vehicle's network.There could be information that the cluster is receiving, that is causing it to make the decision to turn on the light. The charging system may not be behaving as it should, or the instrument cluster could be a receiving a false report from another module in the system, that is causing it to decide to turn the light on.

What could be the problem with a 1995 Cadillac De Ville Sedan if the digital speedometer and odometer stopped working?

if the cluster still lights up but the speedo still inop possible cause is the speed sensor in the transmition

I have change the instrument cluster on my 2000 ford windstar and now it won't start what could I do now?

It needs to be programmed(the odometer and to the current key your using) you will need to take it to a ford garage to have the replacement instrument cluster programmed. Hope this helps! been there done that.
