why is my dash board lights not working
have you checked the fuse? is the dimmer switch turned down? have they just quit working? Headlights/taillights work? Interior light? Need more info!! What have you checked so far?
Try the dimmer switch, and or, check that your body has a good ground to the frame, and battery.
It's the dimmer/on/off control sensor for the headlights/taillights.
Check to see if the parking/tailights are working Could be a bad fuse, or switch Could be an open in the dimmer rheostat
look on the dash board
It was not designed to be used with a dimmer switch. You must have a halogen designed for use with a dimmer or it will not work.
Dimmer switch controls the selection of either Hi-Beam or Low-Beam headlights
The headlamp dimmer switch is mixed in with turn signal lever, push the lever forward for 'brights' The instrument panel dimmer switch is just right and down from the steering wheel, left of the radio it looks like the wheel on your mouse but bigger In 1999+ models, the instrument panel dimmer is to the left of the steering wheel - still looks like the wheel on your mouse.
Check dimmer switch.
The dimmer switch if for the instrument panel lights. The high and low beam switch is for the headlights. On most older cars the high and low beam switch was on the floor. Most cars have it on the turn signal lever now.
Left button sticking out from the instrument panel
make sure your dimmer switch isn't turned all the way down. Then check the fuses next.
the dimmer rehostat is faulty..if you drive with the dash on full bright all the time anyway you can jump out the dimmer by jumping the two end wires on the dimmer plug
The instrument light dimmer is on the main lighting switch - rotate to dim or brighten. Have you checked that your instrument light bulbs are all OK?
turn the dimmer switch up.
On the gauge cluster it should be the left knob. Just turn it.
You just need to change the bulb!
Are you sure that the dimmer switch is working?
1) operator error. check dimmer switch setting. 2) all bulbs faulty, check and replace as needed 3) bad (burned or corroded) headlight switch. expect taillights to be out, your question indicated this is not so 4) loose connection at electrical connector to helight switch. Try moving tilt column and wiggling connector
check the dimmer switch.loose connections often mess this up.
instrument panel lights for 1998 ford explorer the fues is good and when dimmer swtich is good
the lights are out on my dash, climate control and radio buttons, but are ok (but very dim) on the odometer and radio clock/display. it's like someone turned the dimmer all the way down. could the dimmer be bad? all my interior lights and automatic headlights work.
Check the 1993 Park Avenue fuses first. Check the light dimmer switch to make sure that it is functioning. If these are ok, look for a bad wiring connection.
