I have no lights below the radio in the central part of my dash - no fan light, no climate control light, no PRNDL light at the shifter. The "AC on" light DOES work. Is there a single point for all of these to fail, like a plug or a fuse? Or could they all be burnt out?

I just bought the car and discovered they don't work. The other dash lights all seem to be ok. Any help would be appreciated.

Fuse. Check your fusebox, you probably blew a fuse somewhere.

that's a bulb actually. it's not hard to replace but it takes a while sometimes trying to get the box appart and finding it.

Well, couldn't find a bad fuse in the firewall or under the hood, and I agree that it's unlikely that all those lights would go bad. Does anyone know if there's a fuse somewhere else that could be involved, or a plug that could be loose, like maybe behind the radio?

I appreciate the input - thanks!

I heard that, too, and was hoping to avoid it, but I guess yanking out the dash and console will probably be the next step.

You probably fried a wire somewhere, if not.. check ALL the fuses as is not always one fuse for everything. Also check relays and other stuff like that.

I am having the same problem. However last night when i was installing fog lights i removed the vent panel on the driver's side and noticed a loose/disconnected wire behind the dimmer switch. I am guessing that's what's causing mine to go out. I didn't bother looking into it much. I think i remember it was a green wire. I will probably take another look at it over the weekend.

Well I have the same problem here, but I know it was my fault. When I was installing my reverse glow gauges I must have shorted out my lights when I was trying to find a power source for the gauges. I also got the good ol airbag light as a reminder of my tinkering. I'm too lazy to look up how to get rid of it.

But on the plus side my gauges look great!!! :thumbup:

Update - I started to take the center dash and console out and see if replacing bulbs would take care of it, but, man - this looks like a major operation! I've decided to live with darkness on the shifter and lower dash for a while. It's just not worth that much effort to fix a couple lights.

I have 97 Corolla DX

I also have guage light problem. Looks like the bulb burned out one by one. Now totally dark. I couldn't figure out, how to open the guage cluster and replace the bulb.

My second problem is about Drive side parking light which also burned out. Is there a way to just change the bulb. If so does any can give me some idea.

Thanks in advance
