Hi, A friend had the same ploblem with his 2001 Lincoln Continental. The lights on the keypad and interior lights would randomly turn on. The problem was a defective keypad water was shorting the switch.
Check the brake light switch. This can cause the brake lights to go out. There have been a couple of recalls on the 2001 for this exact problem. Contact your local VW dealer and have the switch replaced.
The fuse is blown. They put the dash lights and tail lights on the same fuse so that if you are driving at night the absence of the dash lights will be made relevent to you in order to get your tail lights fixed.
i have the same problem my dash light turns on when i turn on the interior lights but when i turn on only ........the dash light they wont turn on but they work when the interior lights are on ........so they do work .,...is there a separate fuse ?
All my dashboard lights won't work on my 2000 Holden Vectra. Cigarette lighter, stereo, speedo, heater control lights and gear selection lights are all in the dark. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
