Where is the low fuel light located on the dash? 96 thunddrbird. Not sure the bulbs are all working. Just got the car.


At night shine a flash light into the cluster and you should be able to see it if there is one and you will know whether to take out the instrument panel also vheck the fuses for possible blown one for dash lights

Dash lights stay off


Check for power to the light switch. If no power, trace wiring from fuse panel to switch. If there is power, then it could be your switch that is bad.

1999 Sable wagon - the dash and rear lights don't work. Brake lights and headlights are fine. Any ideas?


This can happen when the wires to the lights come loose. If you know someone who can get in the back and check the wiring, and can hook them back up, that's probably all it is. Sometimes items in the trunk, or the back of an SUV, or just hard road bumps can shake the connections loose.

2007 TOYOTA SOLARA DASH LIGHTS SHUT OFF WHEN CAR IS IN DRIVE .


Don,t know why this problem happens....but to get the dash working again remove the dash cluster. There are two white plugs in back of the cluster. In the larger of the two which is dead center on top of the cluster, cut the wire which is in pin #2. It will either be a black/white for the convertibles or a black for all others. It will be next to a white/red wire. Just tape off each end then tape up the harness. No connections are made. Don' t know why this works but it does. Problem seems to happen when remote starts are installed.

Check the dash light fuse. Maybe a problem with the headlight switch.

Headlights out on a 95 passat wagon


Sounds like the headlight switch itself... You can verify by removing the switch and checking continuity across the switch (with a meter or powered test light) in the on position... hope this helps...;-)
