What would cause some dashboard lights to work but not others?
Replace the light bulbs that are burned out, usually from the back side of the instrument cluster.
Where is the fuse box located on a 1997 Chevy lumina and which fuse would cause the dashboard and rear lights not to work?
Tail-lights and dashboard lights are on the same switch on the dashboard and on the same fuse. Check the fuse and if that's not it check the switch. Check the fuse underneath the hood. There are some main fuses underneath the hood. I had the same problem on my Chevy P-U when I lowered my boat into the lake, it blew the fuse underneath the hood and I had no tail or dash lights.
