GMC had to reproam some dash assemblies, because they would flicker and work intermitantly(sp?). If you are getting no turining over of the starter, maybe the battery post is broken, as was the case with my 2002 Envoy. The lack of a solid connection at the battery post caused this to happen, and the car wouldn't start at a local shopping center. The dash would freak out as you mentioned. Thank god we were near a Wal-Mart (hate to say that), but they did replace the battery and showed me where the post had broken. Strange that it was corroded so bad that it broke!
lights are apparently (according to haynes manual) soldered in.
It's that part in front of the driver with the lights and gauges, radio, glove compartment, etc.
What kind of auto is it. Sounds like you may have an ignition switch problem.
If a 1987 Chevy Suburban has lights and horn, but no ignition, gauges, radio, or interior lights it could be a ground wire problem. It is possible that there is a short somewhere. Also check the dome light for a possible water leak in the headliner.
The lights that light up your gauges. . . I don't think those are the lights being asked about. More likely you are inquiring about the service and warning lights.
loose battery connection, or dead battery.
That is correct. On 1987 and later 900s the dashboard lights come on whenever the ignition is switched to ON.
2 ways to change the color the lights show. 1. is to change the bulbs to desired color. 2. Change the gauges faceplate's.
It has no fuse you have to replace the bulb/s itself
it could have to do with the preasure systems. or your gears may be grinding. go to your machanic and check it out :p
A cracked wire or worn insulation may cause intermittent stoppages.
Check engine light is out
I had hesitation when moving off from a cold start in my S60 year 2004. I was advised to turn the ignition key so that the dashboard lights up but not all the way so that youstart the engine. Wait until the lights on the dashboard go out (the engine symbol remains light). Then, without taking the ignition key back to the starting position (ie from the same position as you stopped previously),turn the ignition key to the nextpoint tostart the engine. Since following the above steps, I have had no problems with hesitation when moving off from a cold start.
Its the fuse and if not its the fuse Boxs. by the cluch or brake peddle.
If all of the dashboard lights do not work at the same time on a Pontiac Montana, check the instrument panel relay. The relay is located on the firewall in the engine compartment.
There are many meanings to the dashboard lights. The engine means that there is an issue with the engine. ABS and brake lights mean there are issues with those systems. The oil can means the car is low on oil. The wiper light means low wiper fluid.
Look in your car manual and it will tell you what each symbol means. For example, check gauges light could be low on gas or oil.
Set your light switch to "auto" on the dash and your lights will come on automatically with the ignition. Turn your light switch on your dashboard to "auto" or "automatic" and the lights will come on and off with your ignition switch.
If no lights are coming on the dashboard and depending on the vibrations. Could be a motor mount.
Turn on the ignition so that your dashboard lights come on but dont start the engine, press the locking button on the keyfob within 10 secs, locks will engage then release. Done.
What's the question? Yes, a peugeot 106 has dashboard lights.
The dashboard lights on a Nissan are indicators to help maintain the safety of the vehicle. These lights let you know when you are running out of gas, oil or if you need to have your engine checked.
There are quite a number of dashboard lights on Lexus ES300. The common ones include handbrake light, check engine, temperature, check oil, battery light and so many others.
2003 Nissan Murano "engine service", "VDC Off" and "slip" warning lights on. What does it mean?
On a Peugeot partner, the dashboard warning lights typically mean you must get your vehicle serviced. They could be going off for a number of reasons, such as: the oil needs to be refilled or the engine is not maintained.
