How to Fix Dashboard Lights That Won't Light

If all the lights on your dashboard seem to be out, the problem could be a bad fuse or even something like a turned-off switch.

      Locate the knob or dial that controls the brightness of the dashboard lights. If the control is not immediately evident, check your owner's manual.

      Make sure the brightness control is turned on. If it is and the lights aren't working, the problem may be a bad fuse.

      Check the fuse that controls the dashboard lights (see <a href="; target="_top">How to Fix a Faulty Car Fuse</a>). Replace the fuse if necessary.

      Call your mechanic if neither of these steps fixes your problem.

Tips & Warnings

  • If just one part of the instrument panel is not lighting up, then you have either a burned-out bulb or a wiring problem, neither of which you can easily fix at home.
