Lighting issues - Interior Instrument Panel not illuminated & Exterior Daytime Running/Parking/Tail Lights not working

Asked by Nov 17, 2014 at 02:16 PM about the 1997 GMC Jimmy 4 Dr SLT 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello. I've got some lighting issues with my 1997 GMC Jimmy.  On my instrument panel, the light that illuminates the speedometer doesn't work - all the other lights on the instrument panel do work though (seat belt, check engine, ABS, etc.).  

Also, recently I had yet another car CD player installed so I'm wondering if that's why my daytime running lights don't work now - neither with or without the headlights turned on.  All other exterior lights are working fine (turn signals, hazards, brake, rear backing up while in reverse, headlights, etc.).  

Help Mr. Wizard!!

1 Answer

Check fuse #15 Check DRL (daytime running lights) relay under dash, left of brake pedal. If those are ok, go back to radio/cd player installation.
