The light where I read the Odometer, Oil level, Gas, etc. on my dashboard won't go on at night. Do I have to change a fuse?

Check tail light fuse. When that goes dash lights go with so you know and not be driving without tail lights ...first make sure they are simply not dimmed to nothing

Thank you so much for the response. I was looking at the fuse block but I'm not sure what this fuse is called to replace the tail light fuse. Do you know which one it is? Again, thanks!

Couldn't find the image for a 2002 Dakota. But there should be a map in the cover of fuse box, if not may have to pull them one by one 'till you find a blown one. Best of Luck

It will be one of these..forget the red wire that's an add-on click to size up

Got it! It was the Park Lamp fuse that blew. I replaced it and we're all good! You're awesome! Thanks again for your help.
