My dash light will not come on but gauges still work and headlights? is it a short?
i have a 2005 sunfire and i was driving one day then my dash lights, fan lights, and the fog switch all go out but yet my headlights and tailights work fine gauges work good but when i turn my headlights on the dash lights wont come on. when i turn my car off sometimes they will come back on. someone help for a fix here please
Check the dimmer switch. It can intermittently knock out your dash lights when it starts to go bad. Replacement dimmer is about $50. Be sure to disconnect the battery before replacing any electrical items.
would that knock the dome light out also? even with the dash lights out i can use the dimmer to turn the dome lights on
The dimmer switch has two parts - basically a rheostat to change the dash light brightness, and a simple contact switch to control the dome light. The rheostat goes bad, but the dome light will still work. Try running the dimmer up and down a few times and see if your dash lights work, or flicker.
no it dont
This is my problem as well. Except it had never worked. Bought it 2 days ago.
