I have a fg 2010 falcon Ute, replaced faulty fuse #23

Customer Question
I have a fg...

I have a fg 2010 falcon Ute, replaced faulty fuse #23 however I still don’t have instrument Illumination so I am thinking maybe it would be the relay?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Has the car been starting normally?

90,000km and starts fine, serviced every 10,000km

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Falcon yourself? What have you tried so far?

Fixing myself as I didn’t have any tail lights or instrument lights, replaced fuse now I have tail lights but no instrument lights

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thank you 😊

Headlight switch on manually or Auto?

Hi Gary, manually
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 3 months ago

Ok, I would say the combination switch is the cause.

Similar to this video in early model:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7QFEVWShvc

If only the cluster lighting, and NOT the Command centre lighting, then the cluster is likely to be the cause.

The cluster probably blew the fuse first.

There is no illumination on command centre either ( have only just taken notice since you mentioned it) except I can see the time but no buttons light up. Same on the cluster, I can see the speed but no illumination behind so I can’t see the tachometer or fuel at night or early morning (this has been like it for a week) would it be worth my while to replace the relay first?
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 3 months ago

I would say the combination switch assembly is the cause.

You could swap the illumination relay around first though.
