the 1973 f body fuses are separate for park lamps and dash lamps, so it must be in the light switch itself.
The most common reason that your dash lights and taillights are not working on your Pontiac Grand Am is blown fuses. Replace the fuses.
i dont no
If all the dash lights are out then there is two causes for this. The first is all the fuses have blown the other is the relay for the dashboard lights has went out.
there is a light we dont know what it means
4x4 dash lights on a Dodge Durango don't work
dude....you dont want to do that...unless you want your dash lights not to work...
turn the knob on the left side of the steering wheel on the dash. It will brighten the dash, and radio lights by turning it to the right and it will dim the lights by turning it to the left.
you have a blown fuse, look in your owners manual and it will show you the fuses location.
Start with new fuses...
Order a replacement Toyota 4-runner....!!!
Usually a fuse. when the fuse blows the dash lights AND tail lights dont work. If your tail lights work and dash lights dont, check bulbs, if all blown at once you may have a shorting problem. If bulbs are good you may have a bad connection. Tracing wires is a big job. Get yourself a good quality test light.
I dont have an answer but I am having the same problem. My car wouldn't start but when I turned the key, the lights (hazard and dash lights) started blinking. I think it's a warning that the battery is not completely connected. We tightened the clamps (which were very loose) and it stopped.
If the fuses are good then it's probably the headlight switch. There is a setting that turns the dash lights off, check and make sure someone hasn't been turning your knob.
my headlights work but my taillights and dash light dont work whats wrong
most likely a blown fuse, replace, if it blows again you have a short, if you have a trailer connection look there first
I have a 97 Buick Park ave and the dash lights went out ? all other lights seem to be working , and I cannot identify which fuse , if any could be in need of replaceing . I cannot , with the owners manual , identify which fuse it is that controlls the dash lights ? there are too many , fuses with confusing acronyms ? Any one know exactly which fuse I need to check ?
it is possible that u may have used a wire that is also used in the same circuit as the dash lights which would cause a parrellel path for the current and therefore might not be neccesarily supplying enough current to the dash lights was the stereo put in by a proffesional
It could be the fuse that also controls your dash lights. It is a 15 amp fuse in the box under the hood labeled "small lights".
Please check the fuse first. If the fuse is good then the rheostat switch is the next component to test. The rheostat is the dimmer switch you use to control the brightness of the dash lights. It will probably be part of the headlight switch. Best of luck.
Try Replacing the ATM Fuse 15Amp that is located in your fuse box under the Steering wheel dash, you need to put your back to the floor on the driver side under the dash board and look up and take the cover off the fuse box which is located up high under your dash and replace the fuse listed as "TAIL 15A" this controls your tail lights for when your head lights are on and your speedometer lights etc.
mine was doing the same thing turned out to be a loose ground at the connection strip
Check your headlight switch. You might have a bad switch (fairly common). There are two circuits that go to the headlight switch. One wire feeds the headlights and another one that is fused feeds the taillights. Another wire comes off the headlight swtich and feeds the dash lights usually with a 5 amp fuse. If you lose the tail lights, the dash lights won't work either.
First would be to check the fuse, drivers side of the dash, small panel pops out. or check the 30amp fuse under the hood. could be fuse 28 there
On my car, I had a printed circuit board behind my gauge cluster that shorted out. The cost to replace it was outrageous, so I just wired some new lights behind it - powered from my gear selector light. If you have a dimmer on your dash lights, i'd check that out. Obviously, check the fuses too. If all else fails, you'll have to pull the dash out and investigate from there. Best of luck.
