Asked by Jan 03, 2015 at 09:22 PM about the 1997 Ford Escort 4 Dr LX Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi folks, I just turnned my '97 escort on last night and I've got no lights for my
odometer,spedometer, radio etc. Headlights are fine just lights in the intrument panel are
out. I assume just a fuse maybe but I'm not experienced enough to make that call and I
don't know where or how to go about
fixing it.

Did you check your dimmer switch? Also check your running/parking lights. If they are out too then you most likely have a blown fuse.

Has car had recent damage to it? You might either have a shorted wire or bulb. Does any of the running light lenses look like they might have water in them?
