Most likely it just needs a new bulb or an adjustment. My dash lights in my 2000 Contour SVT are less than adequate around dusk. I couldn't find a step by step install guide for you like the one for my car- http://www.autozone.com/az/cds/en_us/0900823d/80/1b/d0/a3/0900823d801bd0a3/repairInfoPages.htm. Look around you might get lucky. If you go to Walmart, there is a little computer that will tell you what bulbs you need if you go that route. I think mine were a c5w or something.

This is a bulb replacement issue. You will need to remove the dash cluster to get it out to replace the bulbs. A Haynes manual will tell you how to do this. I have a copy of the Taurus Haynes manual if you wish to email me here.

I too have the same problem. I know you posted this over 3 years ago, but do you still have the Taurus Haynes manual to replace the bulb by removing the dash cluster? Thanks,

Bulbs. Believe me, I have been there and done that. It is NOT hard, just time consuming. Google "Taurus Dash Removal". There are even videos of how to tear it apart. Replace ALL the bulbs while you're in there. They are CHEAP and you do not want to do this twice.

Remove the lower dash panel. Drop the steering wheel. Remove the instrument panel bezel. remove the Instrument panel. flip it over and replace the light bulbs. Not exactly a walk in the park but I think he average person can do it in a couple of hours. Not too bad - just remember that you're dealing with plastic and older plastic at that. It gets brittle.
