Asked by Apr 30, 2016 at 11:21 PM about the 1998 Toyota Camry LE V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My son's Camry LE 1998 , dash lights went out, clock and instruments still work, interior light also still works. Could it be the dimmer switch or possible fuse  and if so which one?

Do the TAIL LIGHTS function on this vehicle? Check for POWER into the 15 amp tail lite fuse located at J/B #1 at the left side of the dash. Might be under the left side (driver side) kick panel.

The dashboard lights are probably running on a separate fuse then the clock ..

Sounds Logical but...think for a moment...on most of the Toyota's I worked on..... the dash "illumination" lights come on when you turn the Parking/Headlights ON.. The fuse indicated above I believe.... FEEDS these circuits through ..I think...a tail light relay. I could be wrong.

Was there any resolution to this issue?

Fixed. It was the fuse. Behind storage panel to the left of steering wheel, panel fuse. 7.5. Mini fuse. Was broken. Replaced , dashlights working again. Thanks

OK...nice job. I wonder what made that fuse go bad?

IF...that fuse blows again.....check the wiring harness in the trunk of this vehicle. This WH runs along the left side(driver side) near the left hood HINGE. Good Luck

Correction...that would be the left TRUNK hinge. Old people...you have to watch them like a hawk.
