Which fuse controls the dashboard lights? I am looking at the fuse box and it doesn't tell me which it is?
Year: 2006Make: NissanModel: sentra se-rEngine: 2.5 I-4Already Tried: My dashboard lights went out i turned the brightness switch both directions to make sure it wasn't that. After looking at the fuse box it is confusing me which fuse I need to replace. The other electronics are working fine as far as I can tell but the dash isn't lighting up (except for the brake check engine etc when i turn key to accessories in the ignition) so i figure its a fuse.
Do you have the owners book handy (in glovebox perhaps?)
No you wont have to disconnect the battery, You cane look at the cover once again and find where in the fuse box the spare fuses are located (should be one 10 amp one 15 amp and a 20 amp. Use the 10 amp spare (make sure it's the spare) and replace, everything should work fine now.
I doubt it will blow again (car is fairly new to have electrical problems) unless you have loose change in the ashtrey lighter (shorts out the fuse sometimes, also cheap phone chargers). after making sure the lighter is clear of everything, change the fuse. If it blows again you'll need to bring it to a shop to check for a short. (don't worry it's probably the lighter or just a blown fuse.
