2005 Honda Accord: dashboard..(tach, speedometer..hood..fuse box

Resolved Question:

All the dashboard gauges (tach, speedometer, gas gauge, etc) and gauge lights went out in a 2005 Honda Accord. I looked in 2 fuse boxes, one under the hood and one under the driver's side dash, but can't locate the proper fuse. Is there a third fuse box or is this problem not a fuse issue?

Fuse should be labeled instrument lights under dash? Also does the radio light up?

I didn't see a fuse under the dash labeled instrument lights. Could it have another name? Any idea of the size of the fuse? Also, the radio does work and light up

Try this . Disconnect the battery and clean the terminals . Have seen a cracked battery terminals cause this issue . If there is still a problem most common is the printed circuit board for the gauges is bad. Check all the 40 amp green block fuses under the hood this controls the gauges. These are the next steps . Hoped this helped. Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated .
