What does a flashing 37 on the dashboard of your mini cooper mean?

AnswerEvery time the temperature gauge picks up a temperature of 37 degrees Fahrenheit or lower it will give you this notification. Although I am not exactly sure why this occurs at 37 degrees, it could serve as a warning of changing road conditions based on cold whether or simply a notification telling you its cold.

I think it is a tribute to Paddy Hopkirk's 1964 win at Monte Carlo in his mini copper #37!

How do you remove the dashboard from a 2000 Chevy Silverado?

Are you talking about the entire dashboard or just the piece around the instrument cluster, radio, heater, etc. If it's the last of the two, turn the key to the ON position and (while keeping your foot on the break) move the shifter all the way down to low. Then put your steering wheen in the lowest position and with a firm grip, pull the panel off working all the way around the panel to release all clips. .

The dashboard on your 1995 VW Golf is not illuminated how do you fix this?

The most likely reason your dashboard isn't lit is your taillights aren't working. The government requires auto makers to build cars so the dash lights don't work if the taillights aren't working--this is to let you know the back of your car isn't lit up. So...turn on your headlights and look at your taillights.

Probably, the reason for no illumination is that all the light bulbs are burned out! You see, in '95 VW decided to wire the dashboard lights in with the daylight running lights (DRLs), so that anytime the car is running with the parking brake off, all these lights are on along with the headlights. Eventually, all the dashboard lights burn out! There are websites out there (as well as books, a revolutionary new idea in communication) that will tell you how to replace all the bulbs. I hear it's not that difficult. Try vwvortex.com; look in the forums section. Don't post a new question on this, just search. I guarantee it's in there somewhere!

Good luck!

Amy:

I don't have a '95, so I can not give you specific directions.

That said, if the entire dash board is out, I would suspect the fuse. Suggest checking the fuses, one at a time, looking for a blown fuse. If one (or more) is blown (melted in the middle), replace it with the same color fuse, and hope the lights come on.

(Note: the fuses in European cars are often different than the fuses in American cars. Take the blown fuse to the parts store, and be sure you get the correct size.)

In a 1995 Chrysler Intrepid why do the dashboard lights go off when the headlights are switched on?

I have a 1995 Chrysler intrepid and my dash lights do not go off when i turn on my lights but I may know why yours go off. Either right beside or below the knob used to turn on the headlights is a little dile that can only go up and down. This dile is used to dim or brighten the dashlights at night. The reason your dashlights may go off is because you have the dashlights dimmed way down (gotta love little perks Chrysler came up with) so try adjusting that dile. If that doesn't work, you may have an electrical problem or the light may be blown behind the dash. This could be really expensive to fix, so be prepared. .

How do you change the instrument panel bulb in a 2002 Ford Taurus?

You don't have to remove the whole dash to replace the bulbs. You only have to remove the individual componets that are illuminated, like the heater control head and instrument cluster. Each piece will have a bezel or trim piece around it. You will have to study each piece to see if there are any screws, but you may only need to pry it loose. If you don't see any screws, carefully pry just a little bit on each corner of the trim cover to see if it comes loose fairly easily. Once you get each trim bezel off around the item you want to remove to replace the illumination bulbs, then there will be four 7mm screws on the heater control head, and there will also be four 7mm screws on the instrument cluster. As you remove each item, unplug the connectors, and turn it over to reveal the little bulb sockets. Each socket comes out with a 1/4 turn counter-clockwise to remove it.
This is a tricky job. I have no idea why Ford buried the console access under so much junk, but there you are. First, remove the upper and lower steering column shrouds. Then you must remove the radio. (I know, sounds crazy, right?) If you're unaware of the procedure for this, find some long nails that roughly match the diameter of the four holes and insert them. Inserting the nails releases some clamps, allowing the thing to come loose. Once the radio is out and disconnected, undo the four bolts holding the surrounding plastic (black, runs to steering column). Now you should be able to unbolt and remove the duct covers surrounding the dash. Remove and unbolt the dash meter unit. You'll have to disconnect the cable that links the gearshift to the gear display (It's just a loop that unhooks). The whole thing will pull out enough for you to unplug the electrical leads and separate the whole thing. From there, it's just a matter of replacing burned out bulbs. Don't forget to recalibrate the gearshift cable upon reconnection!



Pull the dash off and then the instrument panel off and it is connected to the back of the instrument panel itself, easy to do but a lot of work. Or if you have a desired color that you want in your instrament pannel, go to auto zone and the have these flexable strip lights you can wire into the headlight swich, its a little easier and it looks cool too!!!

How to remove a dashboard?

I have recently removed a 1992 Chevrolet Silverado dashboard from a junkyard truck, and also my '92 Chevrolet Silverado dashboard from my fathers truck and installed the new one I removed from the junk yard truck...let me just inform you, it's not easy. Start at the bottom removing those screws and work your way up is my best suggestion.

How do you remove the dashboard from a S10 blazer?

I assume you mean just the dash panel. If it is an older one (80's fo example) you have several small torc bit screws to pull. The dash should pull out from there. If you are going further you have to pull all the covers on the heater controls and the glove box. Some on them have hex head screws on them. Once you have the complete face off there are several hex head bolts under the dash, not real easy to get to. You have to disconnect the vents at this point. If you have never done this I wouldn't recommend you do this without help. Some of the wires you have to reach are a tight squeeze. I restore show cars. Good Luck

You have to remove the glove compartment all the way over to the ash tray that whole assembly comes out look up where the glove compartment used to be. You will see the relays use your ownwers manuel it will point you to the flasher relay.. Easy about 9 fillep head screws If your turn signal is not flashing, replacing the flasher or relay might not fix it. Especially if one side flashes and the other doesn't, there is probably a short or corroded wire somewhere in the circuit. Refer to a wiring diagram to test with a test light.

In order to take it off you first need to take off the fuse panel cover. Then remove the clips and screws that hold on the guage cover. After this the there are four screws on the bottom of the guage housing that must be removed from the bottom so you must take the panel that covers the bottom of the dash.(right above the fuse panel Approx 6-8 screws.) Once that is done you can disconect the wiring harness behind the guage housing and remove it. The rest of the panels are held on with a few screws and little clips.

How do you put a body kit on a car?

You will need a set of screwdrivers, socket set, clamps(visegrips), drillw/bit marking pen. The new body kit should line up in the same holes as the old parts. but some kits need some adjusting.use the clamps to hold the part in line to make sure all the holes line up. using a screwdriver in one of the end holes to help line up the rest while still use clamps to hold it in place. Drill only if you need to. the fewer the holes the stronger the part joint will be.

How do you remove the dashboard on 1992 Mitsubishi Mighty Max you would like to remove stereo.?

The plastic piece surrounding the radio has four screws holding it. Two just above the controls for heater/fan, one when you open the glovebox, and one in the same position as the glovebox one on the other side (drivers side). Sorry, but it's a bit hard to explain in words. You'll need to crouch down and look up for the screws, they're out of sight, mounted in the bottom parts of the plastic. After the four screws are removed, use a flat screwdriver in the two vents above the radio to pry them down away from the dashboard, and the whole piece will lift out. Oh, just remember to take the knobs off the radio if it's stock, and the knobs off the heater controls before you start, or they'll be flying across the car when you pull the plastic surrounding out.

Good luck!

Can you free a frozen damper door without removing the dash?

very hard to do. are you sure the door is frozen? maybe the duct is electricaly controled, in which case you have to find out why the control is not working. dodges are famous for the heater control contacts burning up. maybe check that?

Damper/vent doors/actuators difficult and expensive to get to. I have a defroster vent on my 1999 Silverado 1500 that wont open. May be a bad actuator, stuck vent due to filth or an small foreign object that has fallen down inside the exhaust windshield vent. I thought the problem was the temp/fan control panel on the dashboard which I replace for $149.00. I was wrong. Tried looking underneath the dahsboard to see if I could find problem. No way. Went to dealer. They want $180.00 to troubleshoot. Cost could soar up to $900.00 due to removal of instrument panel to correct problem. This cost assured because knowledge of the related problem with my type and year of truck. There is no easy way to see what is wrong due to compactness of components underneath the dash. I checked out other service centers, and basically the same.

If anyone has had experience in removing a dash and correcting my problem, I would like to see there suggestion on this site.
