The dome and clock are on the same fuse in the 93-97 as far as I know.

Check your manual to see which fuses go to your instrument cluster and check them, pull em out, visually inspect, and test with a ohmmeter/voltmeter/meter device thingamabob, basically test the fuse outside of the fuse box on a device to see if there is any electric flow through it, looks can be deceiving.

If it is still good, then perhaps it's time to test some wires! YAY!-sarcasm. Test to see if you have current running through the wires to the fuse(before fuse) and fromt he fuse to the instrument cluster(after fuse). Turn the ignition on and all, when doing this, but take the extra precaution to make sure you don't accidentally shock yourself.

If you get electric flow from any where past the fuse, and it still won't light up, check the instrument panel itself.

That's all I can think of. Hope it isn't a big problem.

Dumb answer I know, but you wouldn't believe how many people find the dimmer knob has somehow gotten turned all the way down.

Dimmer knob, man, that's like forgetting to put gas in your car when you wonder why it won't start!!!

Fuses are good...hmm. Could be the cluster itself then. I would take a look for info concentrated on it.

He said I think his whole dash doesnt light up ac panel, and the rest of the stuff... if the fuse it good then maybe could be a cooked wire

Your welcome and all.

Glad to help share knowledge anyway.


The dash lights won't work if you disconnect a speed sensor? What??? Sound sreally odd. Oh well. Must be a safety feature.
