Is your fuse blown? I have the same problem with my truck. Are any other lights out, or just the instrument panel lights? Often the fuse powers other things. For instance my instrument panel lights are out and so are my running lights. I have found that I have a short somewhere in the wiring. If you replace the fuse and it blows again It is probable that you do as well. I am not sure that the instrument panel is a bulb or not could be analog lights. I am working on the same problem now.AnswerDid you install a radio>? It is a common mistake to use the instrument light wire as a ground. If not, It could be a fuse, the dimmer switch, or the bulb, as a rule, all the lights dont blow at the same time. Some cars use a dimmer module, newer and high end imports especially going back (in my experience to 92 and possibly earlier in imports).
fuses,dimmer switch,head light moduel,daytime running light sensor,night time running light sensor all been replaced. The dashlights,nor any of the turn signals will come on AT NIGHT?? WHAT WOULD CAUSE THIS/
The fuse probably blew that controls the dashboard lights.
The dash light dimmer switch is either turned off or is defective. jd
Some cars have a knob for the headlights. If this knob is turned left or right when pulled out, it changes the brightness of the dashboard lights from off to full brightness.
The bulb is burnt out. If the problem was a fuse, then all brake lights and probably the dashboard lights would be out as well.
warning lights on dash mean something is wrong u would have a generator light a temp , and an oil light
first thing i would check would be all the fuses. then the light switch
Without knowing what you've tried already, I would start with checking the condition of the fuse that controls the dash lights. It may protect more than just dash lights so refer to owners manual, it may or may not tell what the specifications are. If that's OK, then there may be a problem in the light switch or a relay connected to it for the the problem.
Check fuses Check bulbs
The dash light dimmer switch is turned off or broken.
light sensitive sells
The fuse box is on the right side of dashboard when door is open, tail light fuse will cause tail and dash lights to go out.
fuse blown, loose connection or faulty LED's/lamps
Replace the light bulbs that are burned out, usually from the back side of the instrument cluster.
if turn signals are working , and brake lights not working, i would replace the stop light switch on the brake pedal
if all other lights are working, i would start with the reverse light switch.this is usually located on the side of the transmission
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.
The bulb could be 'blown'. Remove the working bulb from the other light and try it in the socket of the one that isn't working.
did you check the fuse?
Bulb blown, perhaps?
You need a new fuse
Is the light bulb inside burnt out. If so, that would do it.
Check your fuse.
Your light has gone out or a bad fuse
It's dangerous to drive it with any light on, especially at night. Any light can distract other drivers or sometimes aeroplane pilots. You want to have your lights off at all times. If you have a light on on your dashboard, you would want to punch your dashboard until no lights work anymore. If your hand begins to hurt from punching it, it is perfectly acceptable to use a tool such as a hammer to finish the job.
