Anyone know why the lights for the instrument cluster wouldn't work?
All the gauges work fine, just no lights. Checked all the fuses - they're fine. ???

Not sure what year u have, but if it is like my'97 there is a slider next to the headlight switch that controlls the dash lights. Have u check that?
If so, it might be bad. mine stopped working, altho before it did the dash lights would flicker. Finally got a used one at the local bone yard for $25.00. That solved the problem.

The mechanic where I work got them working this weekend. It had something to do with the cigarette lighter - he just unplugged it for right now & they work. Thanks for all your advice though! Very Happy

Next time get in touch with www.speedometerservice.com they've been extremely helpful to me with advice in the past.
