View Full Version : Dimmer lights not working

04-30-2006, 11:53 AM

All of the lights that are controlled by the dimmer switch will not turn on, such as the speedometer and heater controls. I noticed they stopped working one night.

Earlier that day I fixed the random clicking noise and I also put in the antenna adapter for my aftermarket radio. I didn't have my illumination wire taped up and it probably touched metal. I checked a bunch of fuses, but all were good.

I thought I read somewhere that there is a fuse by the dimmer control. Is that true? Or what do you think I can do to fix it?

Thanks for any help.

I have the same problem in my '96 GAGT. I checked all my fuses and they were also fine...the speedometer and tach still work, just dont light up. Neither do my heater controls. A very big PITA! I haven't figured out how to fix it yet...it really bothers me.

Anyone else have this problem, and find a way to fix it? I think I might just get some LEDs and hid them somewhere so they shine onto the gauges, or something...i need lights.
