Check the fuse marked 'tail' in the fuse box on the inside at the left lower dash under the plastic cover.

SOURCE: my dash lights are out as well as my back running lights what is the problem.

Yes there is I am not sure where it is.the usually places are: Drivers side kick panel by your feet. could be on the ends of the dash broad drive or passenger side, look for small door on end of dash, you must open door to see it. Gm sometimes puts it in the clove box if it has one. If you don't find any fuses blown it could be the (BCM) Body Control Module. but may sure none are blown under the hood because the Body Control Moduel gets its power from there. Check the large fuse I think it a 60 Amp

SOURCE: Dashboard lights and passenger side

If the fault would have been in the relays or fuses then all the lights would have been out. Your problem is in the wiring - the wire that powers them is disconnected.
You will gonna have to take out the instrument panel to access the dash harness and check the connectors on it.

Half of my dash lights work the other half dont

Depending on which part of the dash, if it's the odometer/speedometer back light or air temperature console ( center of the dash ) back light, you need to open and remove the covers and trims around these parts to gain access to small 12v light bulbs, you can easily pull 'em out of the socket and insert the new ones in place. you can find car light bulbs in Auto Zone or any other car parts dealer shops. Good Luck

How do you change the lights for the fan/heater/vent control knobs on a 1997 toyota camry?

If you have installed car stereos in your dash, this may be a walk in the park. If not, this may not be the job for you. OK. There are screws on the sides of the center dash cluster, I would recommend removing these as this may remove the sides of the entertainment rack in the dash. Once you accomplish this, there should be some screws around the A/C cluster, loosen and remove carefully. There will be a harness behind the A/C cluster and you will be able to replace the bulbs. QUESTION Why do you need to see the A/C (cold) at night? Just wondering.

Rear tail light

Is the top center light working (the light at the window)?? If not, check your brake light switch at the brake pedal. It may be damaged or needs adjustment. If the center light is still working, you will need to have the ground and leads checked at the brake lights. Hopefully this helps
